I will be visiting Nevada this coming week, and I will be going through Las Vegas for a couple of days. I have a Tennessee handgun license that Nevada honors as of Oct 1st (YEAH!!!)

So the question comes to Clarke County. I assume that I need to register the handgun with the Las Vegas police. What are the procedures for that, and what are the hours. The website tells me to take the unloaded gun to a police station listed, but there are no hours listed, hopefully it is a 24/7 thing:dunno:

Any help would be appreciated

Per SB92, If you are not staying in LV more than 60 days, you don't have to register it. However, make sure you have your permit with you and you review our local laws. See links below.

Thanks for the help and the links. I am actually going up to Ely from Las Vegas. I have a network to bring on line there and then another client wanted me to go and service a customer at their ranch off hwy 93 (the trip between Ely and Las Vegas). I will end up with a down day in Vegas, so that I am looking forward to.....

The way that I am reading the law, the only off limits places are Goberment buildings (including the traditional federal bldgs/parks), schools & daycares, and buildings on the premisis of an airport (as a pilot and aircraft owner this pisses me off about Nevada & Indiana as they have no regards for those of us who fly our own planes into the small airports, they just make all airports off limits. I fly with a gun for many reasons, not the least of which is the chance that I could have to force land in the iwlderness and need protection and a means to obtain dinner).

Am I also reading that Casinos, restaurants that serve alcohol, and similar establishments are OK to carry within? I have not read anything to the contrary.

yes you can carry in casinos and bars unless posted otherwise... but you may not exceed .08 alcohol limit while carrying, so best not to drink.

have fun, be safe. :wavey:

NRS 202.257 Possession of firearm when under influence of alcohol, controlled substance or other intoxicating substance; administration of evidentiary test; penalty; forfeiture of firearm.

1. It is unlawful for a person who:

(a) Has a concentration of alcohol of 0.10 or more in his blood or breath; or

(b) Is under the influence of any controlled substance, or is under the combined influence of intoxicating liquor and a controlled substance, or any person who inhales, ingests, applies or otherwise uses any chemical, poison or organic solvent, or any compound or combination of any of these, to a degree which renders him incapable of safely exercising actual physical control of a firearm,

Ę to have in his actual physical possession any firearm. This prohibition does not apply to the actual physical possession of a firearm by a person who was within his personal residence and had the firearm in his possession solely for self-defense.

2. Any evidentiary test to determine whether a person has violated the provisions of subsection 1 must be administered in the same manner as an evidentiary test that is administered pursuant to NRS 484.383 to 484.3947, inclusive, except that submission to the evidentiary test is required of any person who is directed by a police officer to submit to the test. If a person to be tested fails to submit to a required test as directed by a police officer, the officer may direct that reasonable force be used to the extent necessary to obtain the samples of blood from the person to be tested, if the officer has reasonable cause to believe that the person to be tested was in violation of this section.

3. Any person who violates the provisions of subsection 1 is guilty of a misdemeanor.

4. A firearm is subject to forfeiture pursuant to NRS 179.1156 to 179.119, inclusive, only if, during the violation of subsection 1, the firearm is brandished, aimed or otherwise handled by the person in a manner which endangered others.

5. As used in this section, the phrase “concentration of alcohol of 0.10 or more in his blood or breath” means 0.10 gram or more of alcohol per 100 milliliters of the blood of a person or per 210 liters of his breath.

(Added to NRS by 1995, 2533; A 1999, 2470; 2003, 2565)

The problem with casinos is that security will escort you off their premises if they find out you carrying. It isn't illegal to carry in the casinos (except the Stratosphere since they have signs) and the police will hassle you in the strip if they know you have a firearm. Open carry is legal in NV btw. I completely understand your point about not being able to carry a firearm with you when flying. I learned to fly in AK and a firearm is a life line in case of an emergency landing in the middle of nowhere.

I realy like Nevada, it is a fun state to visit. As mentioned I drove up to Ely, and about froze my A#$ off. Came bact to Vegas today, and yes I carried in the MGM and up the strip for several blocks. I carry using THUNDERWEAR, so it is deeply concealed (and now that I have found some excellent pants within which to carry, someone would be very hard pressed to know that I am carrying). Played blackjack, roulette and came out to the good $267.25 for the three day stay in Nevada.

BTW, I did stop and register my gun with the North Las Vegas police department on my way up to Ely. When I called for information, the officer stated that the laws had changed somewhat but that by registering it is just erring on the side of caution. So now me and my glock are duly registered. The officers there answered several questions that I had and were very professional. I just wish that they didn't have the registration BS anyway.:steamed:

I have a strict personal limit of ONE standard issue beer with a meal while carrying (in states that are smart enough to allow carying in places where alcohol is served).

Hey CrazyPilot. I'm moving back to Vegas from NC on Friday. Do you fly out of VGT?

I've flown out of VGT a few times when I was getting some flight lessons on a C206. It's a very busy airport. Welcome back.

I'm surprised they didn't shoot you at the NLV police station for having a gun. They aren't widely regarded as being pro CCW, let alone any civillian with a gun.

I could care less how pro gun any particular police officer or police station is (although I think my transaction at NLV police station was handled professionally).

When it comes right down to it, I am following the law and the constitution. My Tennessee permit is good in Nevada, so therefore I carry. The law says that the NVL (or anyone else in Clark County) would have to register my gun and give it back, and I will firecely oppose anyone who gives me grief (and I have the finances to back up my words). Just ask the United Airlines ticket agent and the Knoxville, TN police about how much I will pursue non compliance with my rights. (I willl no longer fly United, BTW). I use Frontier Airlines most of the time now when flying commercially, and have never had a problem (not even close). Gun BS is also why I won't work in New Jersey, New York, or Maryland.

I transport my gun on the airlines for many reasons, not the least of which is to just exercise my rights, and make others aware of them. The same reason I open carry in Virginia restaurants, etc, etc.

A right unexercised is a right lost.
