Are you absolutely sure?Not in Oklahoma. No municipality can have gun laws that are more or less strict than the state laws.
State laws in Nev. also prohibit cities and counties from making more restrictive laws. However, just in our immediat area, there are drastically different gun laws than state laws.
The prime examples are the two counties Steve mentioned that require handgun registration. The state does not require handgun registration and Nev. does have laws prohibiting counties from passing laws that are more restrictive than state gun laws.
This has been an ongoing problem forever in my memory.
Lot of states have the law that prohibits municipalities from making their own more restrictive laws.
However this is not Reality. Nev. is a good example and there are more.
Long ago I did a internet search of the State and local laws, as well as Gov. regulatons concerning the interstate transportation of guns. I found that local laws are often more restrictive than state laws inspite of the state law prohibiting locals from passing more restrictive laws.
Why this is allowed, I don't know. It is for sure a fact in Nev.
I will post the Nev. gun laws when I find them again.
It is also a can of worms with the "Open carry" laws.
Do a internet search on that and see how much hassle people who choose to use that law to open carry, have to contend with.
A small town in So. Cal. comes to mind. I forget the name, but lots of folks ran into problems with LE because they chose to lawfully open carry.
I didn't research every state on the question of prohibiting municipalities to make their own laws, so it is quite possible there are some states that have uniform firearms laws, but it would be an exception.
I'll research OK again to see if any small towns have more restrictive gun laws than the state, just for interest.
This is as far as I got. I'll do a more extensive search when I get time.
Top line of that link, states there are OVER 20,000 gun laws in America.
I only found the state laws for OK. I'll get more details later.
I would highly recomend for anyone that is interested, to read that top paragraph from the NRA concerning gun laws in the good old U.S.A.
This is what gets folks in trouble.
The Nev. law prohibiting counties from making more restrictive laws was passed AFTER the Clark county ord. to register all concealable guns was passed. In affect "grandfathering" the Clark county law in.
As mentioned earlier. Folks that are traveling a lot with a gun are in for big headaches, the only way to get a handle on it, is to retain a gun savy lawyer.
For locals in ANY area, it is strongly advised to check with local LE to see what is legal or not, regardless of what they may have heard about state laws. If anyone unkowningly breaks the law, it wil drain there resources and greatly alter their life fighting the legal system.
Untitled Document This link explains why our county and city laws are more restrictive than state laws that prohibit those laws.
