Corinth disposes of gun carry ordinance

- Associated Press - Thursday, April 3, 2014

CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - State law will be the way to go.

That's the decision made by Corinth aldermen who have disposed of the city's gun carry ordinance.

The ordinance that was on the books for more than 20 years made it illegal to carry a gun in a public place.

An attorney general's opinion was sought on the issue.

Corinth Police Department Chief of Detectives Ralph Dance tells WTVA TV (http://bit.ly/1h6NbPd) it was determined that the city needed to follow Mississippi's Open Carry Law that was passed last year.

Police say it will still be illegal to carry a gun in a police or sheriff's department and when court is in session.

Guns will not be permitted where a "no guns allowed" sign is posted.
