Salina Bans Open-Carry Weapons in Public Buildings

KSAL Staff - July 22, 2014 7:03 am

A few Kansas lawmakers are seeking to undo a law that will allow concealed guns in public hospitals and colleges.

Open carry of weapons will not be allowed in city-owned buildings in Salina. The Salina City Commission voted on Monday to ban open carry in public buildings.

The action mirrors Salina’s concealed carry police. While the state allows concealed carry in public buildings, Salina was granted a four year exemption from that law last year.

The Salina City-County Building is operated by the City-County Building Authority and is not subject to the resolution. The City-County building will address its policy separately.
