RAYMORE — For the second time, the Raymore City Council has approved a proposal to allow council members to carry concealed weapons during meetings.
A similar proposal was approved in January but later vetoed by Mayor Juan Alonzo. He has 14 days to decide whether to veto the new ordinance, but the 7-1 vote on Monday gives supporters enough votes to override a veto.
The proposal from Councilman Jeff Cox also would allow citizens to carry guns into parks and City Hall. However, citizens could not carry guns at council meetings because that is illegal under state law.
The Kansas City Star reports that the council also supported an ordinance Monday to ask the Missouri Legislature to repeal that law and let cities decide the issue.
