North Hudson, NY will remove ‘no weapons’ signs

The North Hudson Village Board reversed an earlier decision and voted to remove the “No weapons allowed in building” signs displayed at the Village Hall. The action came on a 4-2 vote at the Nov. 5 village board meeting.

The village, in January 2012, had approved installing the signs on a close 4-3 vote after the state passed Act 35 regarding “carry and conceal.” Voting last week in favor of removing the signs were trustees Paul Rode, Daryl Standafer, Marc Zappa and President Stan Wekkin. Voting against removal were trustees George Klein and Colleen O’Brien Berglund. Trustee Ted Head was absent.

Wekkin had introduced the motion to remove the signs, saying the village was penalizing law-abiding citizens who carry weapons.

“Bad guys don’t care about signs,” Wekkin said. “The shooting events around the country have all occurred at locations that have signs banning weapons.”

Trustee George Klein, who was village president when the weapon signs were approved, disagreed.
