    City of Las Vegas allows loaded firearms in the car, but the City of North Las Vegas doesn't unless you have a permit. Same with Boulder City.

    PRHI, 10 round limit for magazines that can fit in a pistol. Thanks to the production of the Ruger Challenger pistol, magazines for the Ruger 10-22 Rifle that hold more than 10 rounds are illegal under the letter of the law.

    Loaded magazines and/or ammo must not be in the same case of the firearm (as in touching the firearm). If you have a range bag with seperate pouches, you can have the firearm in one pouch, and the ammo and/or loaded magazines in another pouch.

    PRCA, all gun cases must be locked, including soft cases a.k.a. "gun rugs", when transporting firearms.

    Didn't the state of Nevada pass a preemption law that did away with those laws as well as Las Vegas's registration ordinance?

    As for strange laws, in PRDC, pepper spray has to be registered. Also, machine gun possession is illegal; D.C. city code defines a machine gun as any firearm capable of firing more than 12 rounds without reloading, meaning the Glock 22 I used to own would be illegal there on the grounds that it is a machine gun. Also, any shotgun, whether or not is has actually been sawn off, is considered sawn off, and therefore illegal to own, if the barrel is less than 20 inches in length.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    Unfortunately the state preemtion law didn't stop "thug" LEO from messing with law abiding citizens.

    They did pass a law stating that no city can pass more restrictive laws then the state of NV, but Northtown Vegas already had the law in effect and it was grandfathered in, along with Boulder City.

    I still have to get my stupid blue cards on any handguns I buy, regardless if I buy them in Nye County (blue cards not required anywhere but Clark Co.) I still have to register all handguns with Metro PD. Private party sales are the same. Even though I'm not a resident of Nevada since I live in Vegas I still have to have the cards since I've been here past the min time (30 days IIRC)

    Even better is any handguns I want to carry concealed I have to qualify with (except for revolvers, qual with one and you're good with all) and go thru the process of waiting in line at the criminal infested fingerprint bureau, unarmed at that.

    Nothing would make me happier right now then if they allowed me to carry whatever I wanted and to shred those blue cards, I get tired of having to keep track of them

    One law that annoys the crap out of me is the Airport law. If I'm dropping someone off I am not supposed to go into the airport, but just dropping them off outside I'm fine.

    Oh, and it varies by airport/state.

    This does not fall under ammo, magazine but here in Texas I can carry more than one gun as long as they are concealed. Some states limit it to one. I think New Mexico is one such state.
