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!
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.

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?
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.

I go to LV several times a yr. on business, I know that we have reciprocity with NV, But, I was told that Las Vegas and N. Las Vegas have some no carry laws, anybody know???
DO NOT CROSS INTO NORTH LAS VEGAS unless you want so jailtime.

I was in Vegas weekend before last and Concealed Carried at the Hotel but Open Carried in Vegas.
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.

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?
No there is not. The handgun registration code is limited to Clark County only. The data is accessible through the NV Criminal Repository though which is the State mirror of NCIC.

Would PLEASE show and high-light where it talks about the "stronger preemption law" ?
See SB92 which amends NRS 244.364, NRS 268.418 and NRS 269.222.

The exact changes are highlighted in the link to SB92 in the 2007 section above along with the respective links.

The only local code that still exists is the Clark County handgun registration code which has been amended by State law;
  • Handguns must be registered no later than 60 days from the date residency in the county where registration is required by grandfathered county code (only Clark County has such a code).[/*]
  • 72 hours from the time upon transfer of title to a handgun to a county resident by purchase, gift or any other transfer.[/*]
Under the letter of the State preemption laws, if you maintain a vacation home sans NV residency within Clark County, you are exempt from the Clark County handgun registration code. Residency is defined as having a NV DL with an address within Clark County and being registered to vote within Clark County. I do not know how LVMPD handles non-resident CFP now since handgun registration is no longer mandatory by State law for non Clark County residents.
