Reciprocity
 
So I found out yesterday that the neighboring town in Ky, has a new city ordiance that bars carrying a pistol. Btw, I live in Indiana and have a valid gun permit. I often visit this small Ky town because its closer to my house than the nearest town in Indiana plus gas there is usually 20 cents cheaper. My question is: Since Ky and In have reciprocity agreements wouldnt Ky state law trump the city ordinance?

Is that an argument you want to have with the police there?

Ky state constitution bars any town or city government from regulating firearms. Check it out. It's bs, you can sue the city government. New law passed in jan.

From kentucky.com




The revision, which went into effect last month, was made to beef up a Kentucky law prohibiting a city, county or merged government from regulating firearms. It extended the reach of the old law to include more types of local governments and local government agencies, including Louisville's consolidated local government, that are barred from regulating firearms.

Newly added types of government that may not regulate firearms include charter, county and consolidated local governments; special districts; and a local or regional public or quasi-public agency, board, commission, department or public corporation.

Sounds like it is a new ordnance. I would assume it can be attributed to the mass shootings.
In my experience state law tends not to trump these sort of things until proven to do so in court. I would check into the law, you may well be able to leave the gun (locked and unloaded) in the car or something to that effect.

I am not a lawyer, and I did not stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but KY state law does not permit a city to regulate ownership or carrying of firearms. That is reserved to the state.
