FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The main venue for the Indiana Republican state convention will allow delegates to bring guns with them after all.
Party officials had said Fort Wayne's Grand Wayne Center wouldn't allow firearms for the June 6-7 convention, but the center's director says it must abide by a 2011 state law preventing local government units from imposing weapons bans.
Grand Wayne Center director Bart Shaw tells The Journal Gazette that groups leasing the venue can prohibit guns, such as when school proms are held there.
Republican officials are also planning convention events at the Parkview Field baseball stadium and the downtown Embassy Theatre. Both of those venues are privately run and don't allow guns.
The Allen County Capital Improvement Board of Managers oversees the Grand Wayne Center.
