When the newspaper reported that Gov. Gibbons stated that he has never carried concealed pursuant to his CCW, I wondered if there was a specific exemption that allowed him to carry to his office. (You and Joe Sixpack and I are not allowed to carry into any government building that has metal detectors at the doors.)

Yes, there is. NRS 202.3673

3. A permittee shall not carry a concealed firearm while he is on the premises of:

***

(b) A public building that has a metal detector at each public entrance or a sign posted at each public entrance indicating that no firearms are allowed in the building, unless the permittee is not prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm while he is on the premises of the public building pursuant to subsection 4.

4. The provisions of paragraph (b) of subsection 3 do not prohibit:

***

(c) A permittee who is employed in the public building from carrying a concealed firearm while he is on the premises of the public building.


So Jim is allowed to carry concealed in the State Capitol Building. Even if he doesn't.
