Unlike another Texas County recently informed by the State Attorney General their ban on concealed carry weapons in the entire courthouse was unlawful, neither city of Navasota nor Grimes County Officials think they have anything to worry about.
The City’s Rachel Stack assures Navasota News, city staff have been very careful when it came to setting up temporary carry conceal restrictions in City Hall. Stack says the City puts up restriction signs for example in the City’s Counsel Room but only during Council Meetings and Court sessions.
Navasota City Council enacted these rules after the new open carry laws came into effect this year.
But the Grimes County Courthouse took a different approach, changing nothing at all, as County Judge Ben Leman explains that it is basically already illegal to carry a concealed weapon into a courtroom itself, so when the new law did come into effect, neither the judge, county attorney nor any of the district judges felt changes to our own courthouse rules were necessary.
