In January, Raymore almost passed a measure that would let city councilmembers carry concealed weapons during meetings. The supporters didn't have enough votes to override the mayor then, but it looks like they do now, Don Bradley wrote Saturday. The new version would also ask the state to let average citizens carry concealed during meetings, too, if they have permits.
Jeff Cox, the councilman who proposed the change, says he wants to avoid a case like the city hall shooting in Kirkwood, Mo., where six people were killed by a man upset with the city. Two of his victims were police officers -- one outside the building, another inside. Wikipedia has an overview of that case here.
