MERIDIAN -- On July 1, a new law giving Mississippi residents the right to openly carry firearms without the need of a gun permit will go into effect.
Next week, during a two-hour block of instruction and education on the Open Carry Law, area law enforcement officers will get guidance on how the new law will impact their jobs and how to deal with citizens walking around with firearms at their side.

"But for the purpose of this session, it is all about the effect the law will have on us as law enforcement personnel."
