Firearms At Festival Vote

arts beats and eats concerts4 Firearms At Festival VoteA vote tonight at the Royal Oak City Commission meeting could pave the way for gun rights advocates who want to ‘pack heat’ at next month’s Arts, Beats and Eats Festival.

The city’s attorney is recommending that organizers lift the handgun ban, saying the ban is unconstitutional. Opponents say huge crowds, alcohol, families, and firearms — is a potentially dangerous mix.

The festival takes place throughout downtown Royal Oak over the four-day Labor Day weekend.
