County reduces number of buildings seeking gun law exemption

By Maura Wery

The Riley County Commission has decided to reduce the number of buildings it will exempt from the state’s new concealed gun law from 44 to 10.
Monday’s decision followed discussions between county counselor Clancy Holeman and department heads concerning which buildings were most in need of being exempted. The law requires that public buildings be made available to concealed carry of weapons unless officials seek exemptions and provide a detailed plan for securing those buildings.
