Columbus Council Adapting Concealed Carry Bill

7/21/11 – Columbus has started to adjust to Wisconsin SB 93…the “Conceal and Carry” bill. Columbus is planning to prohibit persons from carrying firearms in any municipal building. Chief Dan Meister said legal posting of firearm prohibition in all municipal buildings was the first action needed. Another aspect of SB 93 is the provision that City employees can be prohibited from carrying firearms while at work. The new regulations are not likely to go into effect till this fall. Meister and the City Administrator will be bringing plans for posting City buildings and amending personnel handbooks to the Council for approval next month.
