Manatee County employees could soon carry guns to work
MANATEE COUNTY (WSNN) - Details are still being worked out, but Manatee County employees could soon be able to carry concealed firearms to work. On Tuesday, the commissioners voted in favor of guns being allowed at work for Manatee County employees.
The policy was first brought up in May and was brought to a vote on Tuesday.
There are about 2,000 county employees that would be allowed to carry a concealed firearm while on the job.
Those who wish to carry a concealed weapon would need a Florida Concealed Weapon License.
