    'Dangerous objects' banned on Las Vegas Strip

    LAS VEGAS (AP) - Fireworks, sharp items and other "dangerous objects" are now off-limits on Las Vegas Strip.

    Clark County commissioners voted Tuesday on the latest ordinance aimed at cleaning up the popular tourist corridor. It comes after commissioners banned pets and unlicensed vendors, and put restrictions on people handing out pamphlets and ads.

    The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (Dangerous objects banned from Strip sidewalks - News - ReviewJournal.com) the ordinance won't take effect for about two weeks. But when it does, people carrying a dangerous object could face a misdemeanor charge that carries a sentence of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

    Banned items include toy guns, anything that can shoot flames or other projectiles, blades longer than three inches, and skateboards or roller blades.

    Why not post the part that is applicable to the forum:
    The ban does not apply to firearms.
    Capt. Todd Fasulo with the Metropolitan Police Department said officers will not look to ticket people for merely possessing the items. They will be looking for situations that pose a danger to the public.
    "The goal is to curb dangerous items that are in the public right of way that are used or displayed in a way that could be dangerous to the public," Fasulo said.

    To be honest,not everybody on the "Strip" is rational either under the influence,or some having mental health issues that don't like getting turned down for donations.I can understand the sword and flamethrowers ,Even being lawfully armed it would be tough reacting to a threat only feet away,not to mention the huge crowd of people that would make shooting a nightmare,I'd be carrying some "Pepper Spray" and be ready to Haul Ass.

    AND I thought this part of the forum was about knives and Other dangerous weapons not firearms

    The ordinance doesn't apply to weapons carried for self defense as they are "not being displayed in the public right of way in a way that could be dangerous to the public". Unless you're juggling your EDC items while on the Strip, it's not an issue.

    The trouble I have with lingo like that is the fine line between rational and over-exhuberant interpretation of the words. All it'll take for an enterprising chief of police to "crack down" is to interpret such language in the typical GATTTOTP way.

    I'd much prefer such a statute to be extremely clear and forthright about defensive weaponry, ie: Mere carry of defensive firearms and other weaponry SHALL NOT be deemed ... Short of that, IMO there isn't much to guard against such misinterpretation, once the politicos get pressed by the anti's.

    I see where the vagueness of "dangerous objects" is going to be trouble. My tactical pen (I hate "tactical") can be dangerous, but so can the Bic. Who gets to decide what's "dangerous"?

    Has the new ordinance been challenged in court yet, to see if it exceeds what the county can do? It appears that they are limited as to what restrictions they can put in place.

    Apparently you've never been there. There is so much more to Vegas than gambling. It is not the Sin City of old.

    So the ban does not apply to firearms, and yet toy guns are banned. I fail to see the logic in that. Oh wait, it's government in operation. Logic doesn't apply. My bad.

    Since Freemont Street is not technically on 'the stip', does all this nonsense apply there? Was there two weeks ago and the security was very high, to protect the tourist morons.
