MARTINSBURG, WV (AP) -
Martinsburg's gun ordinances are now in compliance with a new state law.

The law prohibits municipalities from enacting firearms regulations that are greater than those of the state and federal governments.

Media outlets report that the Martinsburg City Council approved four ordinances last week to bring the city into compliance with the state law.

The changes include allowing concealed-carry permit holders to bring guns into city recreational facilities and to carry firearms while attending special events. Guns cannot be carried openly, however.

Guns also are allowed in city-owned buildings that are leased to second parties.

Guns are still prohibited in buildings where the city conducts, including City Hall.
