ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. -- Alamance County Commissioners could change their gun ordinance because of safety concerns.

Over a two month period, two people walked into the tax office with guns on their hip. While no one was threatened, some tax department workers were a little scared.

They took their concerns to Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson. Johnson then suggested to County Commissioners that they should ban all weapons in county buildings.

Concealed weapons are already not allowed in county buildings.

Sheriff Johnson adds he supports gun rights. But said Alamance County Commissioners should ban weapons if county workers don't feel safe.

Commissioners are studying the proposal and could decide to ban all weapons from county buildings within the next 30 to 45 days.
