JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The Jackson Town Council is considering repealing a decades-old law that bans concealed weapons including pistols knives, dirks, daggers and swords-in-canes.

The Jackson Hole News and Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1ZPF9gW ) that the potential change is part of an effort to update older parts of the municipal code to match state laws.

Council members who oppose changing that law, which dates back to the 1970s, say they don’t like that the Wyoming Legislature is trying to diminish local control with the Wyoming Firearms Freedom Act.

The council approved the first two readings of the appeal. The repeal will be up for a third and final approval later this month.
