    I am an NRA Certified Instructor in multiple disciplines and have advanced tactical training with pistols, ARs, and shotguns. I teach a fairly large number of CCW classes for out-of-state folks and locals that can't meet the BR&PC schedule. One of the things I always teach my CCW students: "If you are stopped by a police office, show him your permit and let him know you are carrying." One of my out-of-town students was stopped by a BCPD Officer for a rolling stop at a stop sign. When the officer approached my student did exactly as I had taught him - he produced his permit and let the officer know he was armed. After many questions regarding any possible relationship to the BC Government, the officer went into a lengthy speech regarding Boulder City gun laws. My student pointed out that State Law supersedes local law, but the office insisted. In the end (and I don't even know if he got a traffic ticket) the officer let him go - did not even check the firearm.
    We instructors had heard that these grandfathered laws were no longer in effect, This from another instructor who happens to be on the BCPD. Does anyone out there know what the real story is? :?

    Well, NRS 244.364 (County), NRS 268.418 (City), NRS 269.222 (Town), were designed to prevent localities making their own regulations. Attorney generals and others at the time explicitly said that all local laws were to be void.

    However, the current Nevada Attorney General has very recently decided that those laws don't void local regulations and that all local regulations are still in effect.

    We have another thread on this issue here:

    This is exactly what the new laws were supposed to prevent.

    It is hard to know what the law is now, given what is on the AG's web-site.
