County To Allow Employees To Carry Concealed Weapons

KSAL Staff - January 28, 2014 12:12 pm

A law taking effect Monday allows people with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns into public buildings.

Saline County Commissioners approve a policy allowing county employees to carry concealed weapons.

Under the policy unanimously approved Tuesday, employees who have a conceal carry permit will be allowed to carry concealed guns while on the job. The guns must kept on their person, and cannot be stored on county property or in county vehicles. They cannot be left in purses, bags, briefcases, coats, or other items.

Employees wishing to carry concealed guns must sign a waiver.

Commissioners noted that if state legislators pass legislation dealing with conceal carry that the local policy may have to be revised.

“Employees wishing to carry concealed guns must sign a waiver.”
WHY is it anybody’s BUSINESS who has a permit and who DOESN’t?
We have already witnessed how it works when the media gets hold of this information.
BAD ordinance and beware any worker who complies.
It is illegal to ask during an employment interview if a person has CC or not so HOW is it legal to require them to DECLARE it?

Have you seen some of the people who work for the county? If any of them were lucky to pass the test for conceal carry and shoot an innocent person by mistake I hope the county has a ton of money. Workers do not need to carry weapons. The other side of the coin is if all saline county employees are carrying then why do we need the sheriff?

I own guns. I like to shoot guns. I also like sex. But just as there are proper places to have sex and places where it is not proper to have sex, there are proper places for guns and places where guns are not proper. Guns a work, unless one is a law enforcement officer, are not proper.
