New Gun Law Means You May Need New A 'No Guns' Sign On Your Building

Attorney General Derek Schmidt says counties and cities that exempt themselves from a new law on concealed weapons need to change any "No Guns" signs on public buildings.

The law, which takes effect Monday, allows people with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns into public buildings that don't have adequate security, such as screening.

Many cities and counties have taken advantage of a provision letting them exempt their buildings for six months.

Schmidt says he's proposing temporary regulations requiring that state or municipal buildings in those counties and cities have signs making clear that they're exempt from the new concealed carry law.
