DAVENPORT, Iowa — A Davenport alderman has defended his right to carry a concealed weapon into City Hall.

Alderman Bill Edmond said Tuesday that he carries his weapon for personal protection. He added that public officials can be targets, the Quad-City Times reported (http://bit.ly/1pjP35t ).

The city has an administrative policy in place that states employees need written permission to bring such weapons into the workplace. Edmond said he did not seek permission but he did notify the city administrator of his plans to carry. Edmond said he obtained a concealed-carry permit in 2011.
