It applied to all town buildings including the office, highway garage, library and fire station. Only &quot;authorized law-enforcement officers&quot; were excluded.<br /><br />The board rescinded the ban Monday after hearing opposition from gun-rights advocates and after being advised by the town attorney that the ban could not stand.<br /> Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:40:00 +0000 Pat Bradley 44977 at
