ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. — Alamance County Commissioners plan to discuss a proposal Monday that could ban all weapons in county buildings.

The meeting will be held 9 a.m. Monday.

This proposed ban comes after two separate incidents where someone was able to walk into the tax department with a gun.

No one was threatened or hurt in either case, but tax department workers took their concerns to Sheriff Terry Johnson.

He has suggested the commissioners think about banning weapons in county buildings.

    I thought they were already banned from federal and state buildings. I thought town government buildings fell under this law.

    Let’s see.. office handles cash transactions, posted ‘no weapons allowed’, mostly weak kneed employees on duty- yep- this will be a target rich environment for any thug that wants easy pickins’
