VICKSBURG — Vicksburg is banning firearms city property except for law enforcement officers.
The Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen adopted the ban this week. The Vicksburg Post reports the board also ordered signs to be put up on city buildings and at parks.
The ban is to take effect Monday.
No penalty is attached to the resolution.
City Attorney Lee Thames says he is drafting a gun ban ordinance for the new city board to look at next week.
Under state law, an ordinance does not become law until 30 days after it is passed so the public may comment.
A new state law effective Monday allows people without permits to carry firearms as long as they are within sight.
