    In Vegas at conference, gun in vault

    I have Seen conflicting reports as to whether ore not I can open open carry in vegas. I know Nevada allows open carry but have also read that the cops hound for it in Vegas. So for now I am leaving the gun in the room safe. Dangit.

    You are probably safer there than the police station.....Vegas casinos are guarded like Ft. Knox..................
    This guy walks up to me and says "In this town you better shoot first and ask questions later" ...I wanting to ask him why but I had to shoot him first.

    The best way to double your money in a casino is to fold it in half and put it in your pocket.
    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    Leave it in the vault and have a great time. Security is very tight in and out of the houses of ill repute.

    North Las Vegas no OC , OC on the strip most likely Leo interaction . No OC in casinos as you will be ask to leave and may get a tresspassing charge . OC is legal in NV.

    But lots of nutty people there in Las Vegas and even i did not open carry but i concealed carry evreywhere even while playing table games and slots .

    You "can" carry in the casino's, however they will ask you to leave if they see it.

    Vegas police are very militant against open carry even though it's perfectly legal.

    Haha I laughed my butt off when I read that!

    I live in Vegas and work In a casino on the strip and I must say you have nothing to worry about while in the casino, your pretty safe for the most part. Out of the casino is a totally different story! I don't know too much about OC and how the cops take it as I conceal carry everywhere. However I do know it's legal to OC in Vegas. As others mentioned, if you OC or conceal in Vegas in the casinos and they see you, they will escort you out of the hotel. I have heard if you prefer your able to leave your firearm at the security desks in the casinos and they will allow that and keep your firearm secure while your there and you can pick up upon your departure.

    If you have a conceal carry recognized by Nevada, by all means carry everywhere! If not DO NOT open carry in Clark County!

    By all means please gamble there as we need the tax revenue! Just remember that those Casinos were not built on the backs of Wieners! Sorry that should be Winners!

    Yeah I believe if you do or don't have a permit your allowed to carry in your car hidden/concealed, just can't be on your person concealed without a permit. But don't hold me to it I haven't checked recently. If you have a permit though in the state of NV you should have nothing to worry about.

    Utah permits are not recognized by Nevada, See below for a list of those that are.

    You can find a lot about open carry in Las Vegas here: Nevada

    Nevada is an Open Carry state.

    Also, this may help:

    ---------------------------
    Nevada law (IANAL) and nothing here should be taken as legal advice:
    Nevada is a de facto 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 previous Attorney General, on her web-site indicated that she may not think it applies in all cases.
    ===================================
    If you have a permit that is valid in Nevada:

    You may carry concealed in Nevada ANYWHERE except:

    Buildings at the airport,
    Schools (including colleges) and child care facilities,
    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.

    =====================================
    Out of State Carry Concealed Weapon Permit Recognition

    *Effective July 24, 2014

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

    Alaska
    Arkansas
    Idaho "Enhanced" Permit*
    Illinois
    Kansas
    Kentucky
    Michigan
    Nebraska
    New Mexico
    North Carolina
    North Dakota "Class 1" Permit*
    Ohio
    South Carolina
    Tennessee

    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 permittee at all times while carrying a firearm.
    Nevada Department of Public Safety

    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.

    etc.

    If you have questions about any of this please feel free to ask.
