Fall River Commissioners Revoke Courthouse Firearm Provision

Following consultation with Circuit Judge Craig Pfeifle, the Fall River County Commission voted 4-1 to overturn a previous policy that would have allowed individuals to carry firearms into the county’s courthouse, reports KOTA News. Judge Pfeifle stated that the policy may pose a danger to those in the courthouse, and suggested active shooter training for the facility.

Fall River County Commissioner Paul Nabholz, who proposed the change in policy stated that his intent was to make the courthouse a safer environment. Nabholz was the opposing vote to overturn his proposed policy.
