Emporia Recreation Commission to apply for concealed carry exemption.

The Emporia Recreation Commission is going to apply for exemption of the state concealed carry law, joining other Emporia municipal buildings in the 4-year exemption.

Commission president Tom McEvoy said the ERC decided to join the rest of Emporia's municipal buildings and apply for the 4-year exemption from the Personal and Family Protection Act. The exemption lasts until 2017.

This move comes after the Emporia city commission was granted their 4-year exemption, in order to reevaluate their security policies. It was recommended by city attorney Blaise Plummer to apply for exemption earlier in the month.
