County employees may be packing heat

Grady County commissioners do not seem eager to wade into the muddy waters of whether or not to allow county employees to come to work armed.
Commissioner T.D. David told commissioners Tuesday night he had been asked by a county employee if county personnel were allowed to come to work armed with a firearm.
Grady County Commission Chairman Charles Norton said the county may not have the authority to prohibit it since the county could not prohibit firearms from being brought to Barber Park, the county’s recreation facility.
Commissioner Ray Prince warned against getting involved in the issue. “I think you would be opening up a can of worms.”
David suggested the county attorney may need to research the law. “We may not need to do anything. I brought it up because I told the employee who asked me that I would,” David said.
The board took no action and did not give attorney Kevin S. Cauley instructions to research the applicable laws.
