I know that here in MS, state preemption prevents local governments from passing more restrictive gun laws. There was a case in north MS where a sheriff asked the State AG if the county could stop concealed carry, with an "enhanced permit", in the county courthouse. AG office said NO, they cannot stop conceal carry in court houses except for court rooms with court in session. So I guess it will vary from state to state.
