TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - The Board of Directors in Texarkana has rejected a request to allow a “Celebration Walk” in which participants openly wearing weapons would march on a sidewalk on the Arkansas side of the city

The Texarkana Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1j5s4Id ) that the board voted against the proposal Monday night after state and city prosecutors and the city attorney opposed the event.

Supporters of the proposal say the walk would provide a venue to educate the public about the ability to legally carry guns in public in Arkansas. The supporters say they’re happy to at least have an answer from the city on their request.
