Columbia, Missouri: Library Board to Consider Policy Allowing Employees to Carry Weapons
From The Columbian:
A proposed new policy allowing public library employees to carry concealed weapons will be under consideration Thursday at a meeting of the Daniel Boone Regional Library board of trustees.
The current policy prohibits employees from carrying firearms and other weapons onto library property or in library vehicles, regardless of whether they have a permit. Violating the policy could result in job termination.
The proposed policy would loosen those regulations and allow employees with valid concealed carry permits to have weapons on library property or in library vehicles.
