    Vegas Hotels & Casinos

    Is there anyone from Vegas who could advise me about the hotels & casinos stance on CC for personal protection inside their buildings.

    I am not concerned with transportation, because AZ has a reciprocity agreement with NV.

    In Nevada signs do not have the force of law except in government buildings.


    Also, this may help:

    ---------------------------
    Nevada law (IANAL):
    Nevada is a defacto open carry state and you may open carry if you choose. If you open carry in the high traffic tourist areas of Las Vegas you may have a visit from Metro or, Casino personnel may/will ask you to leave the property if you open carry in any casino. If anyone in authority in any private establishment asks you to leave you must leave under Nevada's trespass law.

    There is no restriction on having a firearm in your car, open or concealed as long as it is not concealed on your person (unless you have a permit).

    There is statewide preemption, but the Attorney General, on her web-site indicades that she may not think it applies in all cases.

    http://ag.state.nv.us/about/faqs/firearms/carry.htm

    If you have a permit that is valid in Nevada:

    Out of State Carry Concealed Weapon Permit Recognition

    *Effective July 1, 2012

    In accordance with NRS 202.3689 (effective October 1, 2007) the State of Nevada will recognize the following States' CCW permit holders:

    Alaska
    Arizona*
    Arkansas
    Kansas
    Kentucky*
    Louisiana
    Michigan
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    New Mexico
    North Carolina
    Ohio
    Tennessee
    Rhode Island
    South Carolina - Effective July 1, 2012
    West Virginia


    This law allows holders of valid permits from these states to carry a concealed weapon while in the State of Nevada. The permit must be in the possession of the issue at all times while carrying a firearm.

    ** NEW ** CCW Press Release re: S. Carolina Recognition

    Nevada Department of Public Safety

    NRS: CHAPTER 202 - CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY

    -----------------------------

    You may carry concealed in Nevada ANYWHERE except:

    Buildings at the airport,
    Schools (including colleges) and child care facilitys,
    Public buildings (that means Government buildings) that are posted or have metal detectors.

    NRS: CHAPTER 202 - CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY

    That includes casinos, bars, clubs, restaurants, whorehouses (they are legal in parts of Nevada), ANYWHERE. They may ask you to leave for any reason, or no reason at all, and, under Nevada's trespass law, you must leave.

    You may drink while carrying. The BAC limit is 0.10 (DUI is 0.08, when they lowered it to get federal highway money they did not change the limit for CCW).

    NRS: CHAPTER 202 - CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY

    -------------------------------------------------

    I hope this clears up any questions. Nevada laws concerning weapons are, for the most part at NRS 202.253 through 202.369.

    Have fun in Nevada. Bring lots of money.

    Crimes Against the Person NRS: CHAPTER 200 - CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON

    NRS 200.120 Justifiable homicide defined. Justifiable homicide is the killing of a human being in necessary self-defense, or in defense of habitation, property or person, against one who manifestly intends, or endeavors, by violence or surprise, to commit a felony, or against any person or persons who manifestly intend and endeavor, in a violent, riotous, tumultuous or surreptitious manner, to enter the habitation of another for the purpose of assaulting or offering personal violence to any person dwelling or being therein.

    [1911 C&P § 129; RL § 6394; NCL § 10076]€”(NRS A 1983, 518)

    NRS: CHAPTER 200 - CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON

    NRS 200.130 Bare fear insufficient to justify killing; reasonable fear required. A bare fear of any of the offenses mentioned in NRS 200.120, to prevent which the homicide is alleged to have been committed, shall not be sufficient to justify the killing. It must appear that the circumstances were sufficient to excite the fears of a reasonable person, and that the party killing really acted under the influence of those fears and not in a spirit of revenge.

    [1911 C&P § 130; RL § 6395; NCL § 10077]

    NRS: CHAPTER 200 - CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON

    NRS 200.200 Killing in self-defense. If a person kills another in self-defense, it must appear that:

    1. The danger was so urgent and pressing that, in order to save his own life, or to prevent his receiving great bodily harm, the killing of the other was absolutely necessary; and

    2. The person killed was the assailant, or that the slayer had really, and in good faith, endeavored to decline any further struggle before the mortal blow was given.

    [1911 C&P § 137; RL § 6402; NCL § 10084]

    NRS: CHAPTER 200 - CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON

    BODILY INJURY

    NRS 200.275 Justifiable infliction or threat of bodily injury not punishable.

    I can tell you I spent 6 weeks in Vegas going through training for work. (No I do not work in the gaming industry, my company has a large training facility there.)

    I carried my Kahr CW9 and my Ruger LCP every day I was there. Went all over Vegas, never saw a single no guns sign, and that includes all the casinos. I checked, I didn't find a single one that was posted or that stated anywhere that they didn't want anyone carrying.

    Vegas is an interesting place. I found it is shiny and pretty....for about 3 to 5 days. After that the shiny wears off and the desperateness of the city shows through and it can be an ugly place. But, I think I could live there if I had to. I'd just avoid the strip like the plague.

    I have carried in the Casinos frequently. The ones i have been in (MGM Grand, Paris, Bellagio, The Venetian, M) don't have signs prohibiting it, so if you CC you would be ok. If they see your firearm, you will be asked to leave by security. If you don't comply, you could be arrested for trespass.

    Keep it hidden and no one will know.

    ETA-I have a NV CCW.

    I've carried there

    I have carried concealed several times in various casinos on the Las Vegas strip, using out of state permits that Nevada recognizes. I have looked closely at the doors when I entered the casinos or hotels, and have never seen a sign concerning concealed carry. I always kept the gun completely concealed, and would never open carry there, in spite of Nevada law allowing open carry. The casinos are full of random people and security guards, and you don't want to attract attention.

    Clark County has firearms registration. However, travelers are exempted for 60 days. If your permit is not honored by Nevada you may open carry in Vegas under this exemption as a traveler.

    A good business idea for a local gunshop in Vegas would be to rent out guns to visitors with current compatable CCW's. Be able to rent a pistol for your stay. I am flying to vegas but i'm not going thru the hassle of bringing through the airlines. It would be great to have that kind of option available when i visit.

    No gun shop is going to rent CCW weapons-too much liability. The last thing I'd trust my life to is a rental gun. Poorly maintained and you don't know it's history.

    Flying with a firearm isn't a hassle IMO.

    Again, SIGNS DON"T MATTER. They do not have the force of law in Nevada so you may ignore signs that prohibit weapons (except on Government buildings).

    I live in Vegas and work at a high end resort on the strip. There are no signs on the casinos but if security sees you print you will be asked to leave. If you're a guest at the hotel and they see the gun they will require you to deposit the gun in their safe while you are physically on the property... If you refuse, they will remove you from the property and you'll lose your room fees.

    True, but given what folks have hanging on (and over) their belts these days you don't have to work very hard to conceal well enough not to be noticed.
