WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The city of Wichita won't allow people with permits to bring concealed firearms into public buildings until at least early next year.

A Kansas law taking effect July 1 allows people with concealed-carry permits to take weapons into public buildings unless the buildings have adequate security in place.

But cities and counties can exempt their buildings for six months. KFDI-FM reports (http://bit.ly/16FNTee ) the Wichita City Council voted 5-2 on Tuesday for such an exemption.

Wichita officials say the delay will allow time to study the security needs for the more than 280 city-owned buildings and properties.

The county commission in surrounding Sedgwick County is also considering a six-month exemption.
