Salina Bans Open Carry in City-Owned Buildings

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Open carry of weapons will not be allowed in city-owned buildings in Salina. The city commission voted Monday to impose the ban in public buildings currently exempt from the state's concealed carry law. The state allows concealed carry in public buildings but Salina was granted a four-year exemption from that law last year. City Manager Justin Gage said that to prohibit open carry in city-owned buildings, commissioners needed to pass a resolution directing staff to post signs on the buildings. He says the ordinance will not cost the city much money. The Salina Journal reports the City-County Building is operated by the City County Building Authority and is not subject to the resolution.
