Hood issues opinion on open-carry gun law
Published: December 5,2013
JACKSON — Mississippi municipalities, counties and school districts may rethink restrictions they have placed on the open carry of guns in the wake of a new opinion from Attorney General Jim Hood.
Hood’s office made public today an opinion issued to the city of Corinth regarding its new ordinance that restricts the carrying of guns — concealed or otherwise — from various areas. The ordinance also would allow the posting of signs to keep guns out of certain places.
Wendell Trapp Jr., a Corinth attorney who wrote the letter to Hood, says the opinion is very detailed and he wants to thoroughly review it before commenting.
Dozens of government entities have sought to restrict the open carry of weapons since the law took effect July 1.
