A statewide gun-rights group is suing the city of Winston-Salem over its ordinance banning concealed handguns in 52 of the city’s 69 parks, saying it effectively violates the Second Amendment’s constitutional right to bear arms.

Rights Watch International filed the lawsuit Jan. 8 in Forsyth Superior Court on behalf of three Winston-Salem residents and a High Point resident who works in Winston-Salem. The lawsuit names the city of Winston-Salem and the city’s recreation and parks department as defendants, as well as Mayor Allen Joines and Tim Grant, the city’s recreation and parks director.
