The Westgate has installed next generation metal detectors at its entrances.
State of the art scanners monitor everyone walking thru, scanning for weapons.
When it detects one, it notifies both security and Metro, photographs the person and tracks their location until security notifies it to stop.
Entirely passive, no one should even notice them.
I believe this is a pilot program.

I haven't heard about this. Can you reference your sources so I can read up on it? Thanks.

This actually will make me quit going here. Honestly I didn't go my last trip (few weeks ago) to Vegas but I usually pop in a couple times and hit their sportsbook who usually has slightly better lines it seems than other places at times. That usually leads to a little Pai Gow as well.

That being said as a former State Trooper, I always carry a gun discretely with my CC permit etc. It is legal to carry a gun in casinos in Nevada open or concealed, Unless every public entrance is marked no firearms. I don't recall seeing this my last time there but it wont matter now. They have no legal authority to secretly scan you and notify LVPD because it is not illegal. Just my 2 cents

Can you explain the first paragraph a little bit more? My understanding is that they can scan whoever they want to because they fundamentally have that right as a business, moreover, they can call and tell LVPD whatever they want...they just can't report it as an actual crime. While legal CC (with a license) or open carry is not illegal, that does not mean that everyone carrying a firearm is doing so legally, and generally, I think those are the firearms they'd be concerned about.

I'm not doubting what you say, I just can;t figure out how they would be violating anyone's rights. I do understand why you wouldn't go there anymore, especially if you insist on carrying your weapon everywhere you go. You could always go and not carry your weapon if you really wanted to, though. Are you THAT concerned something is going to happen between the garage and casino entrance?

The metal detector seems very advanced.
If it really works, the security level of public places will be improved.
And the amount of tragedies will be reduced.

I think the casino is better off not even knowing what's going on. If they're notifying the police, there might be showdowns that never would have happened otherwise in or near the casino. Even knowing people have guns makes no difference if they're there to use them.
