Three exceptions.jrm said:The state preemption is for firearms, and it has two exceptions.
1. Local governments can regulate the discharge of firearms.
2. Local governments can regulate the carrying of firearms by their own employees.
Some cities and counties do illegally restrict carry in their parks.GAGunOwner said:If that is the case local ordinaces about possessing or carrying of firearms are uninforceble.
On the other hand, since knives and knife carry are not preempted these ordinaces do hold the weight of law and you could be arrested for carrying them?
True but you could be arrested for carrying a gun anywhere really. It is simply will whatever they try to charge you with hold up in court. State law trumps local no matter how many ordinances restricting firearm carry they pass.Malum Prohibitum said:
