    Casinos

    I was just wondering if anyone had a list of Casinos that post no firearms by their doors. I understand many Casinos have no posting until you reach the entrance to their dance clubs, indicating to me that they are ok with concealed carry everywhere except the clubs. Any input?

    I generally just go ahead and do whatever I entered the casino to do and don't worry about it--all they can do is ask you to leave, if you fail to leave you open yourself up to trespass charges. For the record, I've never been asked to leave; maybe I've never been made.

    Then, I take my future business somewhere else as much as possible. Not all casinos are posted and I try to make sure I spend my money in those that are not.

    I haven't been to a lot of casinos in Reno, but I did see a sign posted at the entrance to Harrah's. I haven't checked the others. I just happened to be going to see a show.

    I just noticed the other day that one of the casino's here in the Muck has a sign that says no weapons.

    I had been carrying in there since I received my permit. So, I guess if you keep it where it belongs, and do not broadcast that you have it, no harm, no foul.

    If they did notice, I would leave if they asked.

    Even if the casino security finds out, they can't have you arrested for having a firearm, regardless of what's posted. There's no law that says that you can't carry in there. By law, a casino is not a public building.

    “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.
    Ę 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.

    The casino can have you arrested for trespassing if they ask you to leave and you refuse.

  8. Most of the casinos in the Reno/Sparks area are not posted. If you're in a hurry to get in and lose some of your loot you probably don't have time to look for signs... if you get my drift!

    The only one that I saw was at Harrah's.

    Four that I know of in Vegas

    • Sam's Town at some entrances from the parking garage
    • Skyline on Boulder Hwy in Henderson
    • Stratosphere Tower
    • Terrible's in Searchlight

    Keep in mind that signage has no force of law unless its a public (i.e. government owned) building.
    The Stratosphere Tower does have metal detectors to the elevator to get to the top of the tower.

    Casinos and the real estate they are on are prohibited per NRS 202.265 if they have a child care facility. This is predominately the Station Casinos. You'll know which one's because they will have "Kids' Qwest" signs.

    On a Nevada election note. If Bernie Anderson is subject to term limits which go into effect this election, he cannot be re-elected this year as he's been a State Assemblyman for over 12 consecutive years or 6 terms. If this happens, we stand to have some good pro-2A legislation passed in the NV legislator this year as virtually all of the pro-2A Nevada State legislators that have not served for twelve consecutive years are running for re-election.

    The only thorn in our backside we need to get rid of is Kirkpatrick since she threw us under the bus with the added prohibited area last legislative session with SB354.

    Thank you for the update. I would leave, if asked. I would rather just go, and be able to come back sometime rather than make a scene and be asked never to come back.

    Same with Wally World. They have no sign, I was in there last night, (only because its the only "department" store in Winnemucca!) and the "door" person saw the butt end of my pistol sticking out of my leather vest (it shifted when I got off my motorcycle), and he did not say a word. But if they asked me to leave, I would.

    Just my $.02.
