SALINA, Kansas (AP) - Salina residents will not be allowed to carry concealed weapons into the city's public buildings for at least six months.
The city commission voted unanimously Monday to exempt until Jan. 1 more than 30 public buildings from a new law that allows concealed weapons.
A law that takes effect July 1 allows people with concealed-carry permits to take weapons into public buildings unless the buildings have adequate security. The law gives cities and counties the right to exempt their buildings for six months.
City Manager Jason Gage says it would cost the city thousands of dollars to install electronic scanners and a security guard at the buildings.
The Saline County-Salina Building Authority also passed the exemption last week for the City-County Building.
