Subj: Re: CCW in Reno
The City does not have any ordinances prohibiting the carrying of firearms. State law prohibits cities and counties from regulating firearms except for the unlawful discharge of a firearm. The City does prohibit firearms, whether or not an individual as a CCW permit, in city buildings in accordance with state law. All city building entrances are so posted.
I trust this answers your question.

Dear Chief Hoover,
I live within an hour of Reno and visit often. I am a Nevada resident, possess a CCW permit and am familiar with state law concerning CCW.
I have heard that Reno has ordinances prohibiting CCW in an area of downtown Reno, but I cannot find anything in the Reno code.
Has Reno, in fact, prohibited CCW licensees from carrying anyplace besides those prohibited by Nevada statute?
