    Going to Vegas

    I am going to Vegas next week. I went to Handgunlaws to check out the quick and dirty version of where I can not carry. Can anyone tell me somethings that I should be careful of while carrying there? What is the additude towards CC?

    Thanks

    I've had no issues while CC'ing. Just don't OC in the casinos and you'll be fine. It's not illegal to CC in the casinos either, even if they have a sign posted.
    Prohibited Locations

    A permit holder must NOT carry a concealed firearm into:
    Any facility of a law enforcement agency.
    A prison, city or county jail, or detention facility.
    A courthouse or courtroom.
    A public airport and/or a public building that is located on the property of a public airport.
    A public building that has a metal detector at each public entrance.
    A public building that has a sign posted at each public entrance indicating that no firearms are allowed in the building.
    Any facility of a public or private school without written permission.
    Any facility of a vocational/technical school, or the University of Nevada, or Community College System without written permission.
    Any other building owned or occupied by the Federal Government, the state, or local government.
    Any other place where carrying a concealed firearm is prohibited by state or federal law.
    The above provisions do not apply to a judge in the courthouse or courtroom he presides or employees with his authorization. They are also not applicable to the employee's of the above facilities. Violation of this section is a misdemeanor.

    Boulder City and North Las Vegas are very different from Las Vegas and the rest of Nevada regarding CCW. If you plan on going to / thru either of those cities, pretend you're in Chicago or San Francisco. Lock 'em up for the duration!

    Let's clear up some things. I live in Vegas, and I've carried concealed here for the last 2 years. If Nevada recognizes your permit for reciprocity. If you have a Michigan permit, it is honored in Nevada- here's the link to the state police page listing states that NV honors, I figure that is a better resource than any other-
    Nevada Department of Public Safety - Records and Technology

    Casino carry is fine if it's concealed. If there's a sign posted, the worst that they can do is ask you to leave. If you then leave, no problem. Of course, if you don't leave, then they can have you arrested for trespassing. Of course, if it's concealed, then they won't have a reason for them to ask you to leave. So, feel free to carry concealed in any casino.

    As far as Boulder and North Las Vegas- They are different than Las Vegas. Open carry is legal in Vegas (I don't recommend open carry on the strip, as you may have a lunch consisting of concrete). Now, open carry is not legal in N. Las Vegas or Boulder. So, while if you don't have a concealed carry permit, you can have a gun on the front seat of your car, in NLV and Boulder, you can be arrested for carrying openly, or have a gun on the front seat, etc. If you're going to go through either of these towns, for example, driving to the dam, and you don't have a permit that NV honors, then lock the guns in the trunk while going through those areas.

    Another difference between NV and other states, you not only can carry into a bar, and you can actually drink. Just stay under 0.08 if you think that drinking while carrying is actually a good idea.

    So, enjoy your trip to the Silver State. Be sure to spend lots of money- the economy has been down recently, and we can use it! And, if we honor your permit, then carry concealed here. If you want a book that covers all of concealed carry, this is a link to The Gun Store, a store here that strangely enough sells guns, has a book for $11 that covers all of the ins and outs of carrying in NV- Concealed Firearm
    It's at the bottom of the page.
    Have a great trip!!!!!!!!!

    Two points, NLV and Boulder city ordinances have been preempted by last year's legislation (SB92). I cannot gaurantee that they will not try to enforce them but they are not the law.

    The BAC limit while carrying is 0.10. When they lowered it for DUI to get highway money they did not change the firearms law.

    Anyone know if the Las Vegas Convention Center is posted or forbidden?

    Yes, you can carry in the UPS store. But not in the Post Office (federal regulation that has the force of law).

    To summarize again:

    If you have a permit that is recognized by Nevada, 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,
    Federally forbidden places.

    NRS: CHAPTER 202 - CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY

    That includes casinos, bars, clubs, restaurants, 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 whlie 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 Las Vegas. Bring lots of money.

    Yes, it (and Cashman Center/Field) are owned and operated by the LVCVA, a political subdivision of the State of Nevada, and the buildings are posted and so are off limits.
