SUMMIT — Summit has joined the list of Mississippi municipalities banning weapons in government buildings.
The Enterprise-Journal reports the Town Council had adopted an ordinance banning “the carrying of weapons into local, state or federal buildings” inside Summit limits.
Officials in local governments across Mississippi — including McComb, Brookhaven and Amite County — have passed measures that prohibit guns and other weapons from being carried in government buildings. Several state agencies have issued their own guidelines.
