    Ok, I think this has been covered before, but can't find it. The Tulsa Zoo is owned by the city but managed privately. It's still considered a city owned park (as is Mohawk Park where its located). Their rules page state that firearms are prohibited on zoo grounds yet state law says no one can enact a policy to prohibit firearms on municipally owned parks. Has there been any clarification on this?

    I think the fight over Tulsa's gathering place would work in this situation.
    Nevertheless, select a firearm that is easily concealable and don't worry about it. If your asked to leave because you were spotted, just leave. Your within the boundaries of the law to do so.

    I think the popular clarification is that concealed is concealed.

    Or … just leave the darn thing at home. Statistically, you are more likely to get killed by a family member than at a zoo.

    Or not!

    I had a roommate in college that said he didn't like to drive to his home since most accidents happen within five miles of your home!

    I've been to the zoo a few times in the summer, and I think your odds of getting killed by a family member while at the zoo are quite high :)

    Oh, I'm not going to push it. I could probably get away with it, but wouldn't want to ruin the day for my family and possibly be trespassed as I do enjoy the zoo. I was just curious if there was anything legally done about it yet. This is why I bought a lock box for our car.

    I just carry in places like this. It isn't a big deal.

    No metal detectors, simple security, just go for it. Others may have.
