Concealed Carry Around the Arch
The St. Louis Beacon reports that concealed carry will be legal on the Arch grounds this coming February.
This policy change is not generating the kind of outrage that the MU concealed carry proposal did. The article quotes the deputy superintendent, who says the policy won’t have much practical effect, because people could be carrying conealed weapons all over the grounds now and no one would know. (That’s true of any public place.) At the few points where visitors are screened for weapons, park officials don’t necessarily confiscate guns even under the current law — to the dismay, I’m sure, of some MU students.
The change looks like wise policy to me. I’m not sure what it has to do with credit cards, though.
