FAULKNER COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) — Tuesday night, the Faulkner County Quorum Court heard the second reading of a proposed concealed carry ordinance. Civil attorney David Hogue said two amendments to the proposed ordinance were approved.
Justices voted on the ordinance that would allow county employees and elected officials in Faulkner County to bring guns on county property if they have a concealed carry license. The two amendments made were:
– A weapon must be kept on person at all times, or safely locked away.
– A weapon cannot be carried into any justice building. Hogue clarified this by saying, a concealed weapon cannot be carried into any building where district or circuit court is held.
The proposed ordinance will now head to committee in early November and then to Quorum Court thereafter.
