KING, N.C. — Unless there is legal pushback, properly certified residents of King will soon be allowed to bring their handguns onto city property.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported that King City Council approved a motion during its regular meeting Monday night to alter the town’s ordinance prohibiting concealed handguns on city property.
The amendment — which was approved 3-1 — will allow residents with concealed weapons permits to carry their firearms into city-owned or operated buildings and related properties.
The council also unanimously approved a motion to allow licensed individuals to carry concealed handguns in public parks and recreational facilities.
The moves, however, won’t go into effect until they’re signed by King Mayor Jack Warren.
