Judge denies permanent order prohibiting no-guns policy

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ An Oklahoma judge says he won't make his temporary order that barred organizers of a music festival from enforcing a weapons ban permanent. 
 
Earlier this year, Cleveland County District Judge Thad Balkman granted a temporary injunction sought by a gun advocacy group to prohibit the Norman Music Festival from enforcing a no-guns policy on public areas.
 
Licensed handgun carriers were allowed to bring firearms, but weren't allowed to do so on private property where gun bans were in place. 
 
The Oklahoma Second Amendment Association asked for Balkman to make his ruling permanent, but he said Tuesday that the Legislature would be the proper forum to permanently prohibit enforcement of no-gun policies at public events. 
 
Festival organizer Quentin Bomgardner says he's pleased with the ruling.
