Mississippi's Open Carry Law is getting mixed reaction from people all over the state. Now, one Hinds County Supervisor wants to protect the county's Constables.
District Five Supervisor Kenneth Stokes tells us he'll ask the Board to consider bullet proof vests for the county's five Constables. He says the reality of the Open Carry Law will impact the lives of every citizen, including those Constables.
"It's important we send a message throughout Hinds County that, since we have this bad law, Open Carry, we're not going to have our law enforcement officials being taken for granted and shot at," says Stokes. He says he'll bring it up at the next Board meeting, scheduled for Tuesday.
