    Do I read this correctly?

    If I read the below correctly, barring any other statute tucked away somewhere, it looks to me like a public emplyee with a CCW can't be barred from entering a public building with his/her firearm regarless of metal detectors or signs. I suppose an employment contract could come into play here however.

    TBG

    NRS 202.3673
    which reads:

    (b) A public building that has a metal detector at each public entrance or a sign posted at each public entrance indicating that no firearms are allowed in the building, unless the permittee is not prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm while he or she is on the premises of the public building pursuant to subsection 4.

    4. The provisions of paragraph (b) of subsection 3 do not prohibit:

    (c) A permittee who is employed in the public building from carrying a concealed firearm while he or she is on the premises of the public building.

    You are correct that public employees are exempt. However, this Nevada Administrative Code allows the employer to make a policy banning firearms. My position is that since this administrative regulation was created by the state Personnel commission and not the Legislature, and the Legislature reserves the right to regulate firearms to itself....

    NAC 284.650 Causes for disciplinary action. (NRS 284.065, 284.155, 284.383) Appropriate disciplinary or corrective action may be taken for any of the following causes:

    1. Activity which is incompatible with an employee’s conditions of employment established by law or which violates a provision of NAC 284.653 or 284.738 to 284.771, inclusive.

    6. Insubordination or willful disobedience.

    8. Fraud in securing appointment.

    9. Prohibited political activity.

    10. Dishonesty.

    Does that apply to city and county as well as state?

    I work for Washoe county part time and was told I have to speak to my supervisor WRT carrying at work.
    I printed out
    NRS 202.3673 and showed it to him, he said "OH!" then he commented on all the guns I had listed on my ccw, he wanted to make a copy...( wow that's neat you have so many guns on there) ... He basically told me to have a nice day, I think he has a ccw and was relieved he could carry at work!!! LOL!!
