    • To require citizens or public employees to be armed for personal or national defense, law enforcement, or another lawful purpose; and

    • To regulate the discharge of firearms within the limits of the county or municipality.

  • Prohibits a county or municipality from using written notice provisions any rules, regulations, orders or policies to ban concealed firearms on property under their control except (Sec. 2-4):

    • At a location indicating that a license does not authorize the holder to carry a firearm into that location, as long as the sign also indicates that carrying a firearm is unauthorized only for license holders without a training endorsement or where carrying a firearm is unauthorized for all license holders; and

    • At any location under the control of the county or municipality indicating that the possession of a firearm is banned on the premises, as long as the sign also indicates that it does not apply to a person properly licensed to carry a concealed firearm or to a person lawfully carrying a firearm that is not concealed.

  • Prohibits a county or municipality or their officers or employees from participating in any program in which individuals are given a thing of value provided by another individual or other entity in exchange for surrendering a firearm to the county, municipality, or other governmental body (Sec. 2-6).
