You and your guns are welcome. That was the message from Mayor Mike Huether, Wednesday.

Wednesday morning, he signed an executive order lifting a ban on carrying guns on city property. But there is still one restriction.

The Mayor signed an executive order and together, with the police chief and city attorney, they say the only people who are not allowed to carry firearms onto city property are city employees. The public still has the freedom to do so.

Mayor Mike Huether said the city follows the law of the land, just like its citizens.

"In this country, in this state, in this city, if you are a law abiding citizen and you follow the laws involving firearms, you too, are protected with the right to bear arms," Mayor Mike Huether said.

An executive order in 1995 banned city employees from carrying firearms on city property.

An amendment to that order was added 2 years later, banning both city employees and citizens from carrying firearms on city property.

But the amendment was never enforced, and legally, the city didn't have the power to enforce it.

"The one that was on the books yesterday had no teeth, the one that 's on the books today has got plenty of teeth," Huether said.

City employees, however, do not have the same rights as ordinary citizens and are forbidden to bring weapons or firearms into city government buildings, libraries, or parks. For everyone else, Sioux Falls Police Chief Doug Barthel asks people to think through whether or not you need to carry a gun.

"If an officer comes into a situation in which other offenses are being committed, this whole situation gets escalated to a whole higher level. not only is it unsafe for the officer but also for the person carrying the gun," Chief Doug Barthel said.

The mayor says people shouldn't feel like they have to take matters into your own hands.

"I would encourage you that if you ever feel you are a little uneasy or not feeling safe, don't go grab your gun, call 911 and we'll be there like to support you and ultimately protect you," Huether said.

There were a number of times the mayor reassured all of us how safe we really are. He encourages everyone to embrace our freedom but use good judgement.

ALL police calls are "armed situations" as soon as that officer arrives. A good cop can be alert/aware without being arrogant. One never can tell what is on another's mind, what kind of day they had, what's going on in their life at the moment. What seems like a minor routine call can become a homicide scene in a split second. Take absolutely NOTHING for granted, but a little diplomacy goes a long way. It isn't the easiest thing to do but then....,not everybody can be a policeman either.

that is a strange revision to a law

Sounds kind of like Illinois' firearms law. Law abiding citizens, people who work for what they have, and registered voters cannot carry a firearm for self defense but irresponsible and non-productive thugs are permitted to run the streets with all the ordnance they can carry!!!!
