Yipee for many of us!

Anyone know what the general policy of the casinos is? I have a brother-in-law in Vegas and visit 1-2 times per year. I also often attend business conventions there so wondered if anyone knows what to watch for in the lovely (sarcasm intended) city of Las Vegas?

AWESOME!!! I go down through Las Vegas when I go to Arizona to my dad's place. This is excellent news. I know it isn't the fastest way to Tucson, but it is fun to eat at In and Out burger. I would say strippers and gambling are fun too, but I miss out on those . . . :cry:

Now if I can just get South Carolina and Oregon to recognize Utah's permit then I will be covered everywhere I go!

Very cool! I was hoping this would happen. This now makes the Utah CFP an even hotter item because Nevada doesn't honor the Virginia or Florida permit.

So it appears from the link that you can carry anywhere EXCEPT:
Airport (even non-secure areas)
Any Public Building (schools, governement buildings, federal buildings, publice buildings on airports, courts, basically anything government / public owned, etc.)

Anyone know what the casino's policies towards concealed firearms is in general? I don't think I have ever seen a sign prohibiting them, but I have never been there with my gun and haven't been looking for any signs.

Understand, however, that Nevada allows CITIES to make their own gun laws as well. Last I checked, Vegas was pretty strict about concealed carry laws.

Clark Aposhian said on his google group that although Clark County (Las Vegas) requires gun-registration and carrying a blue card with the permit, it doesn't apply to you if you are passing through or staying for less than 60 days.

Bill, et all,
I actually have some even better news regarding Nevada and Clark Co
and their stupid Blue card registration process.

Long story short, No need to register or obtain a blue card if you
will be there less than 60 days.

Feel free to use my name along with it the citation. I assisted the
NV Sheriff's association in helping them in determining that Utah has
24 hour availability of our CCW validity checks.

Also effective 10/01/2007.

38 3. If the governing body of a city in a county whose population is
400,000 or
39 more has required by ordinance or regulation adopted before June
13, 1989, the
40 registration of a firearm capable of being concealed, the governing
body shall
41 amend such an ordinance or regulation to require:
42 (a) A period of at least 60 days of residency in the city before
registration of
43 such a firearm is required.
44 (b) A period of at least 72 hours for the registration of a pistol
by a resident45 of the city upon transfer of title to the pistol to
the resident by purchase, gift or
46 any other transfer.

43 2. The provisions of this act, as amended on October 1, 2007, apply
44 to ordinances or regulations adopted before, on or after June 13,
1989[/indent]

Check out the last paragraph of the bill as adopted:
http://www.leg.state.nv.us/74th/Bills/SB/SB92_EN.pdf

I called the LVMPD-CCW unit and verified that they ARE still enforcing, until 01-01-2008, Clark County Codes 12.04.110 & 12.04.200 requiring all persons in Clark County to register their handguns within 24 hours.

You might want to foreword this info to Clark...

This was courtesy of Assemblypersons Kirkpatrick and Smith that slid this iat the end of the 2007 session in SB354; licensed child care facilities.

Keep in mind that a few hotel/casinos have an on site child care facilities. Under the letter of amended NRS 202.265 you could be cited for a gross misdemeanor and a misdemeanor for violation of NRS 202.3673. The amended legislation does not address carrying in accomodation facilities. It treats child care facilities as K-12 schools and universities which under the letter of the present law you could be charged if you enter a hotel/casino with an on site child care facility. The prohibition is extended to the real estate the child care facility is on. There is presently no case law or NV AG opinion to my knowledge on the applicability of this prohibition to a business with accomodation facilities.

So, I am considering going to Front Sight. They do a CFP course with their handgun training and offer Utah, Nevada and Florida permits. So, since I already have a Utah permit I looked into what else I would get with the other two. Florida appears to be nothing, nada. And when I looked on USACarry.com, Nevada also yielded a big zero on the advantage scale.

So, I called Front Sight and asked them about it. They said that having the three permits gives me carry rights in more than 30 states. So, I explained to them that my Utah permit ALREADY gives me rights in more than 30 states. They recommended calling my local BCI to verify the information instead of just trusting a random website.

So, I called BCI and asked them. They agreed that Florida doesn't add anything, but said that we don't have reciprocity with Nevada until Feb '08 and that final information wouldn't be available until Summer '08. This seems to clash with the info at the Nevada Department of Public Safety.

Is BCI wrong on this? Can someone give me some more information?

Thanks in advance.
