Thread: Vegas Casino carry?

    Vegas Casino carry?

    I have a California CCW, which is not accepted by Nevada, but I've also had a Utah non-res permit, which just opened up Nevada for me this month with the new laws. I have a son in Northern Nevada, where I can now carry while I visit, but my question is for Las Vegas, where I also visit often. Is concealed carry with permit allowed in a casino? Also, I think I've heard that if you want to carry in Las Vegas, with a permit, you must register your weapons with Clark County sheriff, within 24 hours?
    Could someone clarify this for me please? If I go to Vegas, can I carry concealed with my Utah permit? Do I need to visit the Sheriff for registration if I'm there for the weekend?
    Thanks to all, Bersa:o

  3. I have no idea about Vegas, they have some different local policies there, but in N. Nevada it is not illegal to CCW in a Casino. I have heard that people who have been discovered CCW have been asked to leave in a couple cases but it's not against the law.

    Good questions. As far as I know, you can carry concealed in a casino as long as the entrance you are entering doesn't have a NO Guns sign. I personally don't carry if I am going to a casino but that's because the only time I do go, I am most likely going to have a drink.

    I do believe you have to register your gun within 24 hours though. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Here is the Las Vegas gun registration info:

    http://www.lvmpd.com/permits/firearms_registration.html

    It was stated on another web forum that someone had contacted LVPD and was told that as long as you were staying in LV less than 60 days it was not required to register your gun. I couldn't find anything official on their website though. You may want to contact someone at one of the links from the website I just posted.

    Thanks to all for the info, and for the link as it was very helpful. I think on my next trip I will go see about the registration of the weapon just to be on the cautious side. I'll have to look closely for any signs or metal detectors as I enter. And of course, if I'm planning on having a drink I won't carry anyway. thanks again to all for the quick responses. Bersa:D

    The web site seems to allow exceptions to registering

    The web site states the following:

    "Registration of pistols within twenty-four hours. (Clark County Code 12.04.110)
    Any person receiving title to a pistol, whether by purchase, gift, or any other transfer, and whether from a dealer or from any other person, shall, within twenty-four hours of such receipt, personally appear at the county sheriff's office, together with the pistol, for the purpose of registering the same with the sheriff. It shall be the duty of the sheriff to register the pistol, and he may, and is hereby authorized to cooperate in any manner he sees fit with other law enforcement agencies, and with licensed dealers, relative to registration of pistols, so that efficient registration shall be secured at minimum cost and duplication. (Ord. 242 11, 1965)"

    The above seems to apply to the acquisition of handguns, which in the case of individuals bringing handguns they already own to Las Vegas, would not be subject to local purchase laws. It does not appear to apply to guns one already owns but are being transported into Clark County.

    "Registration of firearms capable of being concealed. (Clark County Code 12.04.200)
    It is unlawful for any person to own or have in his possession, within the unincorporated area of Clark County, a gun, pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being concealed, unless the same has first been registered with the sheriff or with a police department of any of the incorporated cities of Clark County. (Ord. 242 20, 1965)"

    The above states that registration is needed if one possesses a handgun in the UNincorporated areas of Clark County. If one arrives at the airport and stays within Las Vegas, would one be in an UNincorporated area or an incorporated area?

    What am I missing? Is there case law that clarifies these points?

    This is just my 2 cents because I'm not positive of your answer, but I don't think I've ever been to a casino that didn't serve liquor, and I thought most all concealed carry licenses state that it's not legal to carry anyplace liquor is being served. Just a thought. Good luck on your quest to find out.

  11. Might not be a good idea if you are going to drink alcoholic beverages.
    Guns and alcohol are not good friends, just as cars and alcohol don't seem to mix well.
    Of course if you are in there can concealed carry, when you hit the big one don't pull your weapon and start celebrating, by shooting the ceiling.
    Nuke'em til they glow then shoot them in the dark!
