BULLHEAD CITY -- The Mohave County Board of Supervisors is lifting the ban on guns in the county's 10 libraries.
The board's unanimous vote follows a previous decision to remove the ban on weapons at the county administration building in Kingman.
The Mohave Daily News reports that several speakers told the board during its meeting Monday in Kingman that libraries are no place for guns.
Other speakers argued in favor of lifting the ban, saying banning guns just creates a killing zone and interferes with the rights of legally armed citizens.
A citizens advisory committee had supported keeping the ban, arguing that an unstable armed person could get agitated and pull out a weapon.
