GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A proposal to allow concealed weapons on county property will be voted on during the Pitt County Commissioners meeting on Monday.
The proposal is being put forth by Commissioner Glen Webb.
Webb said there would be exceptions to this if passed. Concealed weapons still wouldn’t be allowed at schools, the detention center, or the courthouse.
Webb said having more guns would actually make things safer.
“We’re talking about concealed carry permit holders who are human and go about their life the same way all of us do,” Webb said. “Tempers sometimes I’m sure flare up, but we never have problems with them.”
Webb said having unarmed people on county property can make them sitting ducks.
He referenced the Greenville Walmart shooting incident, where police responded in less than a minute, but four people were still shot.
