Cameron City Council Gun Ordinance

The city council in one northwest Missouri town is considering an ordinance that would allow them to be armed during meetings.

The Cameron City Council reviewed an ordinance Tuesday that would let members to carry a concealed weapon during meetings if they have state permits. The council will vote on the ordinance later this spring. State law already allows elected officials to carry weapons to their meetings. However, a Cameron law prohibits anyone from bringing a concealed weapon to meetings. The proposed ordinance would exempt council members from that law. Cameron Police Chief Corey Sloan said no specific event prompted the move. He says he looked into the issue after council members asked him about it in January.
