New gun laws in Missoula??

The ordinance would update and clarify the current prohibition on concealed or open carrying of firearms and explosive devices in City Hall and public school buildings. It would add the prohibition to the Missoula City Council chambers, any building where the City Council meets, public art museums, the public library, public parks under the city’s jurisdiction, and “any other locations of public assembly where persons gather together to conduct and/or administer any public election while election related activities are taking place.”


I see this:: Additionally, section 7-1-111(9) prohibits local governments from exercising any power that “applies to or affects the right to keep or bear arms” except regulation of the carrying of concealed weapons.This language was originally codified in Section 47A-7-201 which was enacted in 1975.
