The FUD in the post you quoted has been addressed before. Links have been provided wherein the parties involved have stated they will follow the law. People evidently choose not to believe the facts; I don't know why. Also, it's amazing how often these people post when a little time with the 'search' button would provide accurate info.
It's good to see another poster who values accurate information.
Dear NDS and NavyLT,
Perhaps you are completely unaware and ignorant of the fact that preemption did indeed do as you state EXCEPT for those aspects of local laws that were GRANDFATHERED into the preemption bill. Before you blast away in an uniformed manner that others resources input is BS, you may want to learn what laws in the LAS VEGAS area are grandfathered before you go and claim that preemption will protect you.
Nevada & Local Gun Laws
The following is a summary of State of Nevada and local gun laws, where applicable:
Nevada has a "Statewide Pre-emption" law, so counties and localities cannot pass gun laws that are more stringent than the state law. The NSRPA had a lot to do with getting this law passed in Nevada. Clark County (Las Vegas area) had some laws which pre-date the pre-emption (they were "grandfathered") and are still in place.
Clark County (minus Boulder City) requires registration of handguns only. All other counties have no registration of any guns. For Clark County, the first handgun purchase includes a 72 hour "cooling off" period. A handgun registration card (commonly known as a "blue card" because of its light blued color) is issued for each registered handgun, and must stay with the gun. Examples: If you take the gun to shoot at the range, you must take its blue card also. If you loan the gun to a friend, you must make sure he has the card with it. You may register your handgun at any branch of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (bring it to them UNLOADED AND IN A SAFE MANNER). If you sell or give away the handgun, you are obligated to have the registration transferred into the name of the new owner. If you wish to purchase other handguns, your "cooling off" period is waived if you have your blue card present.
So, the only BS on this issue is yours it appears since 100% of what the LEO/INstructor taught us 2 months ago appears to be spot on. Thank you for the very interesting exchange.
