Mayor Jones Reacts to New Gun Bill
In response to the Governor's signing of the gun bill that will allow firearms on city-owned property like rec centers, Charleston Mayor Danny Jones has released a statement. The mayor has been opposed to the bill and now the law, and said the the statement the city expects to "proceed to Kanawha County Circuit Court to find out whether these recreation centers are, in fact, part of the Kanawha County School System." Mayor Jones says, "If we prevail, that would make carrying guns on the property a felony. If we do not prevail, We hope there will be no trouble at the recreation centers."
