Don Larkin, assistant city attorney, said the Palo Alto ordinance has been pre-empted by state legislation on posessing bb and air guns. But it is still illegal to display those guns in public in Palo Alto unless transporting them.

Why didn't you check before you wrote the story Mr. Kazak! Do your homework. The Palo Alto Municipal Code is available online so this is very easy to check. I notice you have now changed your story, but it should have been correct in the first place.

Municipal Code 9.08.010 does make it illegal to posess air and bb guns. But that has been preempted by the state.
