Description

Localities; regulation of firearms in government buildings. Allows localities and authorized agents of such localities to regulate the possession of firearms, ammunition, or components or combination thereof in, or the carrying of such items into, any building owned or used by such locality for governmental purposes. The bill also removes the prohibition against a locality regulating the purchase, transfer, ownership, carrying, storage, or transporting of such items. Current law prohibits localities from adopting or enforcing any ordinance, resolution, or motion regarding firearms, ammunition, or components or combination thereof, except workplace rules relating to terms and conditions of employment of the workforce or unless such ordinance, resolution, or motion is expressly authorized by statute.
