    Question Las Vegas, NV DMV question

    I gotta go to the DMV tomorrow. (Las Vegas, NV)
    Checked it today, there's a sign on the door says :
    No Firearms Allowed in This Public Building. (it does not say no knives )

    Public building. NV allows carry everywhere expect Government buildings.
    Now I am confused. Could somebody clear this up for me please.
    I carry a gun cause I can't carry a cop.

    I think it falls into that federal, state, county building category. Which carry is not allowed in. Sorry.

    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.

    " 6. As used in this section:

    (a) “Child care facility” has the meaning ascribed to it in paragraph (a) of subsection 5 of NRS 202.265.

    (b) “Public building” means any building or office space occupied by:

    (1) Any component of the Nevada System of Higher Education and used for any purpose related to the System; or

    (2) The Federal Government, the State of Nevada or any county, city, school district or other political subdivision of the State of Nevada and used for any public purpose.

    Ê If only part of the building is occupied by an entity described in this subsection, the term means only that portion of the building which is so occupied.

    (Added to NRS by 1995, 2725; A 1997, 63; 1999, 2767; 2007, 1914)"


    This includes DMV!

    the only signs in NV that matter are ones on public buildings. if you carry into a public building that's posted, you're breaking the law. plain and simple. the good news is that the only government buildings i've ever seen posted (around Reno anyways) are the DMV and the court house.

    the convention center is also posted. since it's owned by the reno/sparks convention and visitors authority (a county agency) it's a legal posting and you can't carry there either.

    SHerrifs office is also posted if I remember.DUH!!:)

    No DMV carry in Nevada. The also have armed security guards at all of the larger city dmv's so I would not push it, might be a bad deal with the rentacops
