NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - A district judge has ruled the city can’t enforce a proposed gun ban during a three-day music festival in the Oklahoma college town.

Judge Thad Balkman ruled Friday that under the Oklahoma Self Defense Act, Norman can’t enforce the ban because its ability under the law is limited to buildings.

The Oklahoma Second Amendment Association filed a lawsuit seeking to stop the ban from taking effect during next week’s free festival.

The association claimed the city has no right to prohibit people with a gun license from carrying concealed or even openly displayed firearms on city streets and sidewalks.

The Norman Transcript reports (http://bit.ly/1O3eHxE ) the judge only granted the request for a temporary restraining order. Another hearing is set Thursday.
