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

nevadacarry dot org has the details



Every casino I've ever entered has had signs banning weapons of any kind, even if you have a concealed carry permit. I'm not sure I'd enter a casino that didn't have such a policy, as I don't know what you or anyone other gun nut is going to do with their gun when you get on a losing streak, get completely drunk, etc.

If you really are carrying a gun into public places like this, I for one want the casino to catch you at the door, and hopefully they permanently ban you. You don't have a right to endanger my life simply because you're a gun nut.

So, I was there briefly in October. I came in the main entrance, and wandered around the casino floor a bit before going upstairs to an event.

I didn't see any evidence of these scanners (nothing obvious on the wall), and no one bothered me. Anyone know if these were ever actually installed?

For the record, yes, I make a habit of carrying a firearm. It's a personal choice I made a decade ago.

Personal Insult. I'll give you a pass this time, but given this Warning, the next one will be a fairly long ban.

I disagree that it's an insult, but I am barely ever here anyway so it's not a problem, do whatever you'd like to do.

How is calling someone a, "Gun Nut," not a Personal Insult? If you were to talk about your notion of, "Gun Nuts," in third-person terms, such as, "I do not want to have my life endangered by a gun nut in a casino," then that is a whole different ballgame. You're not calling the other speaker a gun nut in that instance.

However the police or security or military do have the right to endanger your life and carry weapons correct? What is to stop some law enforcement type to go off the rails and start a rampage? You ever hang out with some law enforcement military types and go out shooting with them? They don't act like some church going grandmother types in my experience. As a matter of fact, in my experience, they are pretty Amped up ready for action. I recently had some 5 foot nothing woman officer pull me over and try to get me rattled because it took a few extra mins to find my registration.

Apparently. My mistake. Was trying to add another data point that this appears to be vaporware at this time.

While nothing is to stop them, history shows that armed law enforcement are far less likely to "go off the rails and start a rampage" in a public place than armed patrons. I'm not a fan of anyone having guns in a public venue when I am present, because if there are no guns, I'm not going to get shot. But if they have to be there, I certainly want as few as possible, and for them to only be on trained, authorized police officers (I am certainly not a fan of private security guards having deadly weapons either, but the alternative is to not enter casinos because they all have armed private security on the premises).

It's simple math. Fewer guns means fewer flying bullets coming from fewer directions, which lowers my odds of being shot while I play in the casino. Therefore, I want fewer guns on the casino floor. I was actually in the Nugget in Reno during a motorcycle gang shooting - maybe 50 feet from it, sitting at a blackjack table. Perhaps having actually witnessed the consequences of patrons being armed colors my opinion.

I hope we have a gun nut here because I'm going off of old memories. But I believe if you concealed carry onto a gun restricted property, all they can do is kick you off their property, unless there are specific laws against it (like federal property).



Being nuts about guns can be a positive reference as seen above. Calling someone a gun nut who says they are nuts about guns doesnt seem like a personal insult to me
