City Officials In Ozark Want To Ban Concealed Weapons In City Buildings

City officials in Ozark are discussing a possible ban on concealed weapons in certain places.

People in Missouri can carry a concealed weapon without a permit in most places. Police departments and a few other places are still off limits. 

"However, you can carry a concealed weapon in city hall if it's not posted," says Ozark city attorney Dave Collignon. 

One city official asked someone with a concealed weapon to leave Finley River Park. Guns are allowed at the park though. That's what started the discussion amongst city council members. 

The plan is to further limit where concealed weapons are allowed and to make a list for people of places having a concealed weapon is not allowed. 

The Ozark board of aldermen will vote on the ordinance on June 5.
