TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Attorney General Derek Schmidt says counties and cities that exempt themselves from a new law on concealed weapons need to change any "No Guns" signs on public buildings.

The law taking effect Monday allows people with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns into public buildings that don't have adequate security, such as screening. But many cities and counties have taken advantage of a provision letting them exempt their buildings for six months.

Schmidt said Wednesday he's proposing temporary regulations requiring that state or municipal buildings in those counties and cities have signs making clear that they're exempt from the new concealed carry law.

A state board will meet Friday in Topeka to approve the proposed regulations.
