The Morgantown City Council narrowly passed an gun ban on the first reading. The ban would allow only current and former law enforcement personnel to carry a firearm in any municipal building in the West Virginia city.

A new law preventing anyone but active and retired law enforcement from carrying a firearm into a “municipally owned or operated building” — like city hall, the Public Safety Building, the MUB offices or the public library — was passed on first reading during the Feb. 7 regular meeting Morgantown City Council.

The ordinance passed, 4-3, with councilors Ron Bane, Wes Nugent and Jay Redmond voting in the minority.

A municipally-owned or operated building is described as “any building that is used for the business of the municipality. Property rented by the city to other entities — such as the former Woodburn School — does not fall under this restriction.
