Open carry in Nv.

Postby crgonzalez08 » Tue 06 Jun 2017 8:11 am

I have a trip with the family to Las Vegas. I know Nv is a open carry state. Do you guys know if it matters that we are from Utah visiting for the weekend, or do you need to be a state resident to be able to open carry in the state?

Anyone who is legally able to own/possess a firearm can open carry in NV without regard to residence.

Be aware of state laws that restrict where carry (open or concealed) is allowed.

Casinos generally bar carrying firearms on the gaming floor, and if spotted you will be either asked to leave and return without your firearm or outright trespassed from the casino property.

Signs banning firearms have no force of law, except for that which is listed in the Nevada Revised Statutes, but do clearly indicate that companies desired action by its patrons.

Some people, usually tourists, might be taken aback by your mode of carry, but don't worry much about that.

There are other nuances to carry in NV, but those really have to be experienced rather than read about.

Oh, one last thing: For Open Carry, no permit needed to carry cocked and locked.

I would expect to get attention from the local cops if I open carried on someplace like the strip. Might not be more than a friendly conversation, but they exist to preserve the tourist atmosphere.

Handgun Law - Nevada is a good resource to review before your trip. I personally have not had any issues in Nevada and I carry all the time when I visit. But then I always conceal-carry.

I talked to a manager of security at one of the major casino's and he said conceal-carrying is conceal carrying and they don't really have a problem with that. He said what they do have a problem with is someone open-carrying or printing in which case they'll ask the person to leave the casino.

Carrying on reservations is another story so I'd suggest reviewing the Tribal Law and Concealed Carry document.

No one should make decisions for us when it comes to guns and gun carry. If we do things we're not comfortable with because someone told us it's 'right' it becomes a distraction in an event where clarity and simplicity is needed.
