Wenatchee lifts ban on guns at cemeteryNovember 15, 2012 @ 9:34 pm
WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) - The city of Wenatchee has lifted a ban on guns at cemeteries.
The Wenatchee World ( http://bit.ly/ZEF9lK) reports that the city council repealed the ban last week to better conform to state laws on where cities and towns can allow firearms.
The vote came at the request of Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation, which tracks gun laws in cities and town. They noticed firearms were still banned from graveyards in Wenatchee.
No guns are allowed at graveside just yet. The repeal won't go into effect for 30 days, which means it'll take effect right around Dec. 7.
