The casino gun ban was given a last minute revival in the form of SB 452. Emergency procedures were abused to revive this from the dead when it was already stripped from AB 286. Leave comments, email and call ALL senators; NOW. Hit up the governor too.
Disregard the last post and email on AB 286.
This bill would ban firearms on the property of any posted casinos; that means the parking lot, garages, and drop-off/pick-up areas. Legally, this means if you are going to casino, you are disarmed the entire trip because you can't leave your gun in the car.
Concealed carry: they have to warn you to leave before calling the police.
Open carry: they don't have to warn you before calling this police.
This makes no sense. Someone carrying illegally (and is probably a bad guy) is far more of a risk than someone who is openly carrying, because OC'ers have nothing to hide.
This bill is totally unnecessary because "leave when warned or else be trespassed" is already Nevada law. Most people conceal carry, so the open carry portion as well is unnecessary.
This bill would also disproportionately affect minorities who would likely be targeted by police and security. No one deserves to be disarmed because they're on the Strip. By disarming the public criminals will know that essentially the entire Strip and downtown is a gun-free zone.
It's time to tell MGM and Wynn "no." Our valuable tourists and gaming customers who support this state's economy do not need to be disarmed and alienated because low rates brought utter trash into the state where they caused problems.
