  COLUMBIA — A Columbia attorney for a newly elected state representative is demanding that the Columbia Public Library take down its signs prohibiting firearms inside the building.

State Rep. Cheri Toalson Reisch, R-Hallsville, sent a letter through her attorney Jennifer Bukowsky to the Daniel Boone Regional Library board claiming that the library is in violation of state concealed carry laws.

In the letter, Bukowsky threatened to file a lawsuit, a temporary restraining order and an injunction if the signs are not removed by March 10.
