Many Miss. public buildings ban open carry of guns

Even if Mississippi’s open-carry gun law takes effect, people still won’t be allowed to take firearms into the Capitol or many other state or local government buildings.

State agencies have the power to set rules for the properties they oversee. Mississippi government’s biggest landlord, the Department of Finance and Administration, is among the agencies that have filed updated policies to limit on firearms on public property.
