    Default Traveling from Arizona to Vegas with a gun

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section..not really sure where to post. I have browsed the forums for a while looking for my answer but have yet to find it :(

    My husband & I will be driving from northern Az to Las Vegas in late March, I have searched online but haven't been able to find an answer to my question...we are wondering if it would be legal for us to take our 1911 with us up to Vegas. Was hoping someone here could possibly point me in the right direction to figure this out. Thanks so much to anyone who can help :)

    Do you ahave a ccw in Arizona? If you do Nevada does not honor it. So a AZ ccw would not be valid in Nedada. I live in Vegas and know the rules so feel free to ask me more questions if I dont answer yours. You can take your 1911 to vegas if you are the registered owners or at least have the owners blue card and there permission, if it is your you should still have the blue card on you. Nevada laws haven't changed in a while so it is a open carry state.... with restrictions. You can have a loaded pistol on you if you own it, have the blue card, and do not have it concealed ( unless you have a ccw recgonized by Nevada) You can not enter a building with a gun if the no guns sign is posted, even if you have the proper ccw. Do not let a casion know you have a gun!!!!!! I cant tell you its ok to bring a gun within a 100' of a gambling establishment, but I can tell you I never take my gun off in Vegas.

    Thanks. We do not plan on concealing it at all. Basically, we were just hoping to drive there with it (in the trunk if necessary), then transport it to the hotel. We are staying in a hotel/casino though...I've never been to Vegas & my husband says we will be walking the strip, he hoped to take it along with us then also.

    Make sure you have the gun register card and when you are driving make sure the gun and ammo are in 2 different compartments or at least not togeather. As far as a casino...... I cant tell you to bring it in there, even up to your room. I can tell you that I never take my gun off and no one see's it....... That goes for on the strip too, don't let anyone see that gun on the strip or deffiatly not in a bar. I never take my gun off in Vegas! thats all im saying. ( get a good gun harness)

    Even if you have an AZ permit, it is NOT honored in NV. DO NOT bring a handgun into NV, you can be arrested. In Las Vegas, you need a permit to carry your firearm. DO NOT take advice that tells you to conceal it anyways, and be careful not to get caught. You must have a permit that is recognized and accepted by NV. If you don't, you are not allowed to even transport the firearm in your trunk, unless you are going through the State of NV, not stopping and staying there.

    Casinos, STAY OUT with a firearm.

    Basically, lvweebles is telling you bad advice, that can cause you to get arrested.

    Added: Federal law allows you to transport a handgun from a place where you are legally allowed to possess it to another place you are legally allowed to possess it, even if you pass through a place where you are not legally allowed to possess it. The law allows for you to have it locked in a case, not accessable from the passenger compartment of the vehicle, i.e. trunk, etc. The law does not provide for you to remove that handgun from your vehicle if you are in a place where you are not licensed to carry that firearm.

    uh did you read the same post I did.... Because weebles just stated the same thing you did. He told them that there is no reciprocity between arizona and nevada, and he told them never to bring a gun into the casino's. You just told a guy he didn't know what he was talking about and then repeated the same information he said.

    Also the OP said they do not plan to CC so............ they would like to know if they can legaly keep the gun in their car for protection.

    RachelS look up Nevada's castle doctrine laws if they have them. If they do and if it includes the vehichle as an extension protected under castle doctrine then yes it is legal. If not then you problably cant do it legally. Now if you have it in its own box unloaded in the trunk (which does no good for protection) then you are problably ok. Honestly I always carry a gun in my car when I travel legal or not, and don't think Im telling you to do something illegal. However as they say I would rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

    for what it is worth my google fu says yes nevada has a castle doctrine that includes your vehicle. DISCLAIMER!!!!!!! I do not live in Nevada, I am not a lawyer, I am not a police officer of any kind, I am just a guy talking to you on a forum trying to help with your question. Perhaps you can find out more I only did a 2 min search, but try looking at the NRA site. My answer came from wikki under castle doctrines, they have each state listed and what has them and what state doesn't. Then you can click on the state and it shows you the reading from the legislature.
