Public Libraries: “Missouri Library Association Wants Autonomy on Firearms Decisions”
From the Columbia Missourian:
Although state law allows people to legally carry guns into public libraries, the people who run those libraries hope to have their own say.
Almost all local governments or political subdivisions, except public library districts, have the option to choose whether to allow firearms on the premises.
Vicky Baker, president of the Missouri Library Association, feels libraries were inadvertently left out of the law.
Missouri changed its laws regarding conceal and carry beginning Jan. 1, 2017. Missouri residents no longer need to get a conceal-and-carry permit.
