I tried to look for you... but Nevada's online search of their statutes really sucks.

Thanks for the information. Does anyone know whether the big casinos have signs out front making carry inside illegal?

I am also going to LV on business soon.

Maybe a better question would be: Where in the Las Vegas area can I carry concealed under the new state law?

I believe the Utah CCW permit is valid in Las Vegas. I did a quick Google search and found the following:

NEWS FLASH: UTAH CCW IS NOW ACCEPTED IN NEVADA!!!
YOU CAN NOW CARRY IN LAS VEGAS!

I believe that this was also covered in the CCW permit class that I took in December.

Hope this helps.

Well, sorry about the confusion. You can carry any place except those listed above by Ruger Collector. As long as you plan to stay less than 60 days, you do not need to register your firearm.

The point that I made about the Casinos is this: Technically if a Casino doesn't have a "no guns" sign at the entrance that you enter from, you can carry there. However, I have been on many a website for Vegas Casinos (as I went down for the Shot Show 2008) and they pretty much all have policies forbidding patrons and the public from carrying in the gambling floors. Supposedly this means that you can carry in areas such as the Roman Forum mall in Caesar's Palace and the like, but... it's up to you. It's pretty hard to go anywhere - even most restaurants or buffets without walking through a gambling area. I don't know if their policy carries any weight of the law - but I would hate to find out - I'm not a big fan of Casino security. And seeing as how you can walk all around town with open alcoholic beverages, it sure seems that the Casinos pull a lot of weight with the local PD. Just my opinion, I would give more credence to what Ruger Collector said - that stuff is legit.

Thanks for the info. From the NV state law posted above, it seems that the signs do have the weight of law. UT seems to be pretty unique in its view that "signs don't carry the weight of law".

Thank you all so much for your input, I guess I havn't been as bad as I had thought :shock: , as for the casinos, I just must be entering from entrances that don't have signs or casinos that don't have policies because I have not seen sign yet.(maybe I'm daydreaming).

Won't be staying in casinos this time around or eating in them, won't be going around any off limits areas either, so it looks like I'm good.

Thanks again

The reason the Shot Show is a prohibited area and signage has force of law is because it's a "public" building owned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (i.e. a political subdivision within the State of Nevada) under NRS 202.3673.

Signage for private businesses have no weight of law other than simple trespass in NV for open or concealed carry. However open carry in a casino is frowned upon because it scares away the anti liberals who are spending money and keeping our property and sales taxes down. Casino carry on non Indian Reservation land falls under know the law; don't ask, don't tell. On Indian Reservations it depends on what the tribal law is that day. You won't be punished for a State crime other than simple trespass, but the Reservation can impound your firearm. Because of Federal law, you can not sue an Indian Reservation without Congressional approval so either you need to jump through the tribe's hoops to get it back or just write it off.

However, keep in mind that an additional prohibited area was added last legislative session, child care facilities. If a casino has a child care facility on site, under the letter of the law you are in violation of NRS 202.265 and NRS 202.3673 which are gross misdemeanor and misdemeanors respectively. The child care facility prohibition under the language of the statute is extended to the entire premises, including the parcel of land the child care facility is on and vehicles specifically owned and used by the child care facility.

So if every casino in greater Las Vegas offered some type of child care services, registered with the state (because I am sure that's required to meet the statute), you effectively make concealed carry illegal or inconvenient in every tourist area. With the family friendly efforts recently... well, you make the connection.

Way to go Clark County!

So, walking down a sidewalk (that appears to be a public thoroughfare) that is owned by a casino would be illegal if you're carrying and the casino happens to have a childcare facility on its property?

Fortunately casinos with child care facilities are in the minority. It's predominately the Station Casinos and a few others. It's not Clark County, it's two Nevada Assemblypersons behind this; Kirkpatrick and Smith. They are the ones that need to go.

Yes. In Nevada child care facilities and the real estate the child care facility is on are now identical as K-12 schools with respect to carrying firearms.

You would be just as illegal if you were cutting through the parking lot of a K-12 school or walking through an access road or side walk that appears to be a public sidewalk or road but is owned and maintained by the school district, private or charter school.

I have challenged Assemblypersons Kirkpatrick and Smith that slid this bad legislation under the radar on the validity of the alleged bounty hunter incident at a child care facility shortly after the 2007 session. They have yet to provide anything that substantiates the incident even occured.

SB92 took care of that. The only local or county code that is still in effect is the Clark County handgun registration. The open and vehicle carry codes in Boulder City and NLV were null and void as of Jan 1, 2008 by our stronger state preemption law. Prior to that NLVPD would allow vehicle carry if you had a NV CFP. Ironically, the NLV mayor is the most progun of all elected officers in NLV. He's happy SB92 passed because the city council wouldn't repeal the existing codes.

nxiv,
Is there anything on the books that restricts how long NLV can keep the registration records of non-residents? If not, is there anything that prevents them from sharing that registration information with other PDs?

This could be a defacto national registration if every gun owner eventually makes it to LV once in their life. And we all know how much we gun owners love LV. :nilly:

Registration is only required if visiting NLV for longer than 60 days.
