West Bend Allowing Concealed Carry In City Buildings

10/6/11 – The West Bend Common Council has voted to allow city workers to carry guns. The council will also allow guns in city buildings. The decision comes just before the Wisconsin state law on concealed carry goes into effect November 1. Alderman Ed Duquaine says the decision simply upholds the new state law. Milwaukee and Whitefish Bay city governments have banned weapons in their municipal buildings. Officials in Beaver Dam are talking in committee about modeling their ordinance after Eau Claire’s, which also prohibits guns on city properties.
