    Oh bummer they require registration to comment. Here's what I woulda said...

    Correction: It is not a "useless" law, it is an ILLEGAL law. And starting today, persons who sue local governments to force compliance with the long-standing state preemption of gun laws may be reimbursed for all the legal expenses incurred while doing so. You better believe they will repeal this law, unless they are just plain stupid.

    A thought:

    Since, according to the article, the ordinance applies ONLY to 'concealed' carry in those affected areas, wouldn't one's (CCW/CHP/CHL/LTCF/CWP/whatever) establish one as 'authorized' within the the ordinance? (Not having read the ordinance myself to see if it specifies only gummint goons are 'authorized')

    If such were the case, and said ordinance were NOT enforced against OCing, and 'permitted' CCing, then I'm not so sure it would be illegal, so much as deceptive. Kinda like a sign that says "No illegal weapons allowed''....as long as the weapon is legal, they can't do anything, but it causes people who don't know any better to think they can't carry.

    IANAL, but my understanding of the law is that local governments are prohibited from enacting any ordinance on firearms, not just ordinances that are contrary to state law.

    You can read it for yourself, see if you agree:

    Still we have state departments with their "rules" i.e. hunting, no more than 3 shells in a shotgun and carrying in state parks.
