ROSWELL, N.M. — A southeastern New Mexico city is weighing whether to allow its employees to carry concealed weapons at work.

KOB-TV in Albuquerque reports (https://goo.gl/sd4Xtd ) the Roswell City Council is scheduled next week to vote on a concealed weapons measure. Supporters say the new option will keep employees safe.

Under the proposal, Roswell employees who complete requirements to obtain a concealed carry license will have the option to carry a gun.
