    Nevada Residents -Questions About Casino Carry

    Now that Nevada is recognizing other permits, Handgunlaws.us only states public buildings (school and so forth). Where do Casinos fall in, since that is likely the only place (other than restaurants and a tattoo shop) I am going to be in if I go to Nevada?

    I've never seen a casino that was posted.
    At least so far. I wonder if they nre recognition law will change that.

    Nevada law does not preclude concealed carry by those with a permit anywhere accept:

    Buildings at the airport
    Schools and child care facilities
    Posted "public buildings" or "public buildings" with metal detectors, read that to mean government buildings

    Anywhere else is OK as long as you keep it concealed. That includes bars and restaurants, casinos, tattoo shops, etc. Anywhere!

    Nevada is a defacto open carry state but you may be subject to questioning if you do this on The Strip, for instance, and most casinos will make you leave if you open carry on their property. If they see your gun they can throw you out and you have to go under Nevada's trespass laws. Of course, under those laws they can throw you out without having any reason at all.

    p.s.; the building where the SHOT show is being held, the Convention Center, is a government building and is posted. As such, it is against the law to carry there.

    The OP is looking for law and fact, not personal opinion, hearsay, or urban legend about holes in the desert. Lets keep it that way.

    There is no law prohibiting concealed carry in casinos in Northern Nevada, I carry concealed in casinos here frequently.

    Boomtown west of Reno has some entrances posted Small, descrete gold colored signs. I've seen signs near the doors of a few other casino's as well. The Keyword here is some entrances.

    It almost seems intentional that some casino entrances are posted while others (in the same building) are not. It's as if they are trying to create a loop hole.

    Just carry concealed and you'll likely be just fine

    Just to repeat what I said above for clarity.

    It does not matter if they (casinos) are posted. It is NOT against the law to carry even if posted.

    Posted only applies to government buildings.

    Now ya dun it! I'm gonna have to make a trip to Boomtown just so I can check that sign out!

    But like Ken says, it carries no legal weight... but that can definately kick your butt out!

    Thumper,

    As I think you know, they don't need a sign to do that. They don't even need a reason to kick your butt out.

    Recent experience

    I am not a resident of Nevada, but spent a couple of days in Las Vegas about 4 weeks ago. I have a Utah permit which is recognized in Nevada, and carried the entire time I was there.

    I carried in 5 casinos on the Strip, including Bellagio, Wynn, Venetian, Caesar's Palace and Treasure Island. I looked carefully at the doors of each one for signage as I entered, and none of them were posted regarding guns.

    Cool. Now to decide if it is a Utah or Florida non-res permit to get next.

    They do not put up signs because it would not matter if they did.

    Correct me if I am wrong or if the law has changed, but you can carry in the casinos so long as you are not gaming. If you hit the slots or the tables, you can't carry (at least that is what I remember from nearly 10 years ago).

    I have no references about this just memory.

    Nope, has nothing to do with it. I carry and gamble all the time. Perfectly legal.
