Lawsuit Filed After Library Bans Woman Who Brought Gun

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A woman who brought a gun while she checked out library books with her children will remain banned after a judge denied her preliminary injunction.

Las Vegas-Clark County Library District attorney Dennis Kennedy said Michelle Flores sat in the Rainbow Library doorway with her children after a security guard told her not to bring the weapon again.

Kennedy said Flores was banned for disruptive behavior.

The library has a sign posted prohibiting firearms.

Flores’ attorney Jeffrey Barr said the library cannot prohibit patrons from openly carrying firearms under state law.

Barr said the trespass notice lists firearms as the reason for her year-long ban. He and Flores plan to appeal.

Kennedy said the state law that Barr referenced applies to counties, towns and cities and not the library district.
