    On Tuesday, September 21, 2010, the Santa Clara City Council was scheduled to adopt Ordinance No. 1863, which would prohibit the possession of firearms in city parks (with the only exception being for "peace officers," no exception for unloaded open carry or for CCW holders). But the item was withdrawn from consideration by unanimous vote of the City Council when Santa Clara City Manager Jennifer Sparacino raised legal concerns brought up by a letter received from National Rifle Association ("NRA") and California Rifle and Pistol Association ("CRPA") attorneys.
