Salina Approves Delay On Concealed Weapons Law

KSAL StaffJune 24, 2013

Salina City Commissioners vote to temporarily exempt the city from the Personal and Family Protection Act, which becomes law July 1st. Commissioners Monday voted to exempt Salina from the law through December 31st of this year.

The new law allows concealed weapons in public buildings that do not have “adequate security”. Generally, “adequate security” means airport-type electronic security equipment, and security staff.

Cities and counties can exempt their buildings from the new law for six months.

Salina has over 100 buildings that would have to either allow concealed weapons, or to enhance security at an estimated cost of $65,000 per building per year.

The delay will allow time to study the security needs for the city owned buildings and properties.
