So, you can't carry in a bar but you can in a restaurant that serves. What about a club inside a casino? For example can you carry in the voodoo lounge in Vegas?

Did the law change in the last 2 days?


In Nevada you can carry in a bar and you can drink while carrying. BAC limit is .10

I carry in casinos, don't become inebriated, mind my own business and have never been told to leave.
 
When I was doing my CCW class at Frontsight one of the instructors I belive was retired Las Vegas PD and he gave this advice, if you go to a NV casino wearing a concealed firearm the security guys will eventually notice that you are armed (since most of them are retired LE). They will watch you for a while and if you are just playing slots and drinking coffee they will leave you alone, if you start drinking alot or draw attention to your self you will be asked politely to leave the property.
 
I haven't had an issue CCW'ing at any Vegas casino resort. There are some where you'd be foolish not to. I've carried inside of Harrah's Carnaval Court during their headliner weekend band (Mr. $ Mrs. Smith) without issue. I was never made by Harrah's security.

I also CCW'd in Lake Tahoe (Stateline NV) at the casinos along the CA/NV Stateline without issue. Never got made or asked to leave.

I typically carry at least two with a third locked in my room when I'm traveling.

Coast Casinos post as Glock Fan has noticed. I ignore casino postings. However if the casino has an on site child care facility you may be in violation of the law since the language or NRS 202.265 implies the entire parcel of land the child care facility, K-12 school, college or university is on.

Private property owners can pose whatever restrictions they wish, however they have to identify you are indeed packing.

Same here. Most of the time when I go to a club I carry in an ankle holster and as soon as I walk out I go to the restroom and put my gun back in my iwb holster. It just gives me a little more piece of mind because most of the clubs in Vegas get really crowded and you are always bumping into people. My Kahr MK40 conceals very well but there's no hiding it if someone bumps into it.

The ankle holster may give you piece of mind, but the time it takes to draw can cost you your life. I use it as a secondary weapon, not a primary.

Be safe!
 
I think one of the California Hotel and Casino on

Las Vegas, NV 89101

You can't carry concealed in the California Casino. You must unarmed and leave your firearm in the vehicle, then you can go play the slots and tables in the CA casino.

The Nevada Revised Statutes does not say that you cannot cc in the California Casino, any casino for that matter. If that casino's company policy is to not allow cc then the only thing they can do is trespass us, escorting us out the door.
 
There was a posted sign No weapon at all similar as Harrah's Casino

Their policy is not to allow firearms inside their building. Their policy, not law. Unless it's prohibited by law, their sign means little. Go into the casino via a side door that sports no sign. What they can do is trespass you which mean that you are escorted out the door. You put your firearm in your vehicle, you go back inside, all is well. :biggrin:
 
That is what I am saying if you seeing the posted sign, must leave your gun in your car and then you can go play the slots and tables.

gdcleanfun beat me to it. No. You can only be trespassed from the property if you are made.

All Coast Casinos/Boyd Properties have that signage. Until I am made they can go pound sand. Oh BTW, I typically go out to dinner at Sam's Town which has the same signage posted. I carry anyway. I always carry at the casinos here. Until they put metal detectors at each entrance there's nothing they can do until you are made. You're only going to be made if you're being an idiot.

When I go to Carnaval Court @ Harrah's I have no issue. I've also carried at Harrah's in Laughlin and Tahoe. No issues. The only casino that has metal detectors is the Stratosphere and that's to get to the elevator to the top of the tower.

The only time a casino resort may be a statutory prohibited area is if it has an onsite licensed child care facility and that's subject to some legal debate under the language of NRS 202.265 and 202.3673.

Not so. Those signs means little to nothing. It's not law. It's only their policy. If you are legit and cc well, they will never know and you are breaking no laws, unless, as Netentity said, they have an onside child care, and yes, then it's debatable if cc is then legal. I'm thinking that lots of casinos have this, or at least one on one child care, they used to anyway. I often used services like this almost 20 years ago when my son was small. You need to do your own due diligence.
 
You are right. Thanks for correction me :thank_you2:

My posts need to be corrected. The Nevada Revised Statutes specify where it is illegal for you to both open carry and cc. Other than in those specific places, when you see a sign on a building that prohibits open carry or cc, well, that is when is when the signs mean little. I hope I didn't mislead you. Click here to read the NRS 202 for Crimes Against Public Health and Safety. There are many sections concerning firearms.

The key here is that the NRS specifies that every entrance into a building such as a casino has to be signed that no weapons are allowed. If you find a casino that has that type of sign, find another entrance, a side or back door or some such. I park in back parking lots and use back or side doors often because rarely do I see signage on the walls. If you are discovered then all you have to do is tell them you saw no sign on the wall and then all they can do is trespass you back outside. Then it's up to you to decide if you want to return to a casino (other place of business) that won't let you be secure.

Not quite true. In terms of concealed carry, it's true. In terms of trespassing, and I guarantee you that they will go that route, it means everything. They can still ask you to leave. Something tells me that they will go so far as to arrest you and claim that you wouldn't leave. It's their word against yours and guess who wins? Unfortunately, the casino. They can use their authority to pull the blue card thing too if you're not a resident of Clark County and they can confiscate your firearm to make you go through the process. Sucks, but the cops can do it. You'll get it back but they know it will take time.
