Martinsburg City Council has given preliminary approval to four proposed firearms ordinances designed to bring the city into compliance with a new state law.
The Journal reports that council members approved the first and second readings of two proposals Tuesday. Two others received preliminary approval last week.
One allows concealed-carry permit holders to bring guns onto city-owned property that's leased to second parties. Another allows permit holders to carry concealed guns at special events.
A third proposal prohibits any weapons on city property where city business is conducted. Another allows lawfully concealed weapons on city-owned property used for recreational purposes.
Final votes on all four proposals are expected May 8.
