CHARLESTON, WV (AP) -

Charleston's mayor wants clarity on whether a new state law can let people bring guns into city recreational centers that offer youth educational programs and school sports.

Mayor Danny Jones filed the complaint March 26 in Kanawha County Circuit Court.

In the law, cities can't prevent people with concealed carry permits from bringing guns into city recreational facilities, like swimming pools, tennis courts or after-school centers. Guns would need to be stored securely out of view and access to others.

Jones' complaint says it's a felony to bring guns on school grounds, and school-related sports and educational activities occur at city rec centers. The complaint argues guns shouldn't be allowed in other city recreational centers unless lockers are available to store them.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin signed the gun bill March 25.
