Roswell, N.M., City Employees Can Now Carry At Work

In August, a shooting at a public library in Clovis, N.M., left two people dead and four more injured. It was that incident that prompted Roswell, N.M., City Councilor Jason Perry to propose that city employees be able to arm themselves at work

That proposal went before the full city council this week and they overwhelmingly approved the measure 9-1, reported the Roswell Daily Record. The resolution will now enable employees with concealed-carry permits to carry concealed firearms on city property.

The lone vote against the proposal came from Councilor Juan Oropesa. He was of the opinion that having guns in the workplace could be dangerous if people got angry. Fortunately, the voice of reason won out with a resounding victory in Roswell.
