I travel alot with my job and my job allows me to carry my gun with me when I travel. I go to Las Vegas alot and was wanting to know if you can Open Carry in Las Vegas?

I see that it is stated on www.carryconcealed.net that parts of Las Vegas and such as North Las Vegas and Boulder City have "deadly weapon" laws, and you could be cited or arrested if you pass through their jurisdictions with a firearm in your vehicle.

So does that mean I can't carry my handgun at all. Either on my person or vehicle.

If you have any info that would be great.

Thanks

The local open carry codes in BC and NLV were invalidated by SB92 last legislative session which makes our State preemption laws stronger. The only local code that still exists is the Clark County handgun registration code. While open and vehicle carry is legal; open carry will draw the attention of law enforcement. You will also be ejected and trespassed from any tourist venue.

Casinos greatly frown upon it unless you are a uniformed LEO as it scares away the gambling patrons from the anti-2A States such as CA. If it costs NV money, especially since we're about $1B in the red now, it will be dealt with. You also most likely will be cited for something because the State needs the money. Anyone who has been to Vegas very recently or lives here knows that LVMPD, HPD and NHP are in force issuing traffic cites because of our Statewide budget crisis; speeding and CA stops being the big ones that motorists are getting pulled over for. We have recognition in NV now with FL and UT being choices for non-resident CCWs. Carry concealed and spend your money in a casino, not in court.

I just came back from a week in Las Vegas at a conference. Carried concealed the entire time, including in casinos. I never had any issues, and I never saw any signs. I watched every door I went into and never saw anything about firearms in the several casinos I went into. I didn't specifically search everywhere around the doors, but I was as observant as I could be while walking in and saw nothing.

I looked into the laws before going (including some good posts on the open carry site), and as far as I could tell, nothing stops you from carrying concealed in private businesses like the casinos. I am sure I would have had problems if I had open carried, but overall it was a great experience. As far as I could read, I was within the law the entire time, and I never had any problems with security or otherwise.

Only problem I had in NV was on that "Dam Tour". There are metal detectors and X-ray machines before going on the Hoover Dam Tour.
