Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁

I’m a little late to this discussion. One comment:

You don't have a right to endanger my life simply because you're a gun nut.

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


As written it could be seen as a personal insult. But the ‘you’ is, I believe, intended to be a generality. Just replace ‘you’ with ‘someone’ and it becomes a non-personal statement, and not at all insulting.

Besides, I’m not sure calling someone a ___ nut is insulting.

I’m a casino nut and proud of it.

AFAIK....

First of all, it depends on where you are, state laws differ, obviously. I believe in NV, in order for a casino or other business to legally "ban" weapons from their property from CCW holders, the signs need to have specific verbiage and/or an actual specific sign. A sign that simply reads "No guns permitted on premises" has no legal weight. It needs to be the "official" verbiage to hold legal weight.

I don't think banning guns is going to be all too helpful when someone wants to actually wreck havoc in a casino. That guy with a CCW is probably the exact person you want nearby if some crazy gunman comes into the casino you're at and starts shooting up the place.


Also, being in possession of a gun when your BAC is over 0.1% is illegal. So if we're going off of the "people with guns won't go to places where guns aren't permitted" logic, then we should agree on "someone won't get drunk and have a BAC over 0.1% while holding because that's not legal" logic.

guns, six rounds, six hundred rounds,... heck, try walking into a casino with an empty holster.

From what I understand, posting in NV only is legally prohibiting on government buildings, and must be done a certain way.

Hotels are private property, and they have a right to throw out damn near anyone they don't want (just so long as it isn't because of a protected status), so they can always bar someone with a gun.

Correct. That being said, I don't get close to 0.1% when carrying.



At the end of the day, it'll be interesting to see what happens.
