Gun rights advocates plan holiday displays

Gun rights advocates in Jackson are getting
their holsters ready for Fourth of July events.
Several firearms owners in the Jackson area are wearing their weapons at holiday events to show support for open-carry laws.
Jackson police say they will have extra patrols on the holiday but otherwise anticipate no problems from an increased display of firepower. Gun owners need a state permit to carry concealed weapons, but not if guns or rifles are handled in plain view. The group of gun owners plans to gather by Jackson's Howdy Pardners Fourth of July Parade.
After the parade, the gun owners planned to visit Grand Teton
and Yellowstone national parks. A new federal law allows visitors to carry weapons in national parks.
