Supervisors Relent and Remove No Gun Signs

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Washington County Supervisors have relented and removed “No Gun” signs at the Washington County Courthouse in Greenville. Mississippi law allows enhanced conceal carry license holders to have a gun almost anywhere on public property, courtrooms being one exception if they have passed a special training course. However, signs at the courthouse warned visitors that guns were prohibited anywhere in the building. A citizen complaint sparked an opinion by state Attorney General Jim Hood who affirmed the 2011 Mississippi law allowing guns in the building.

  1. About time. It’s right around six years since it was not illegal in MS to enhanced-carry into a courthouse. Yeah, I know, it’s said that LEO’s want to be the only ones carrying a weapon, but those times are past now, & every man or woman who doesn’t want to be a victim just might be carrying.
