A man created a "major disturbance" at northwest Las Vegas 99 Cents Only store. He was asked to leave. The man shot an unarmed security guard. Another shopper, who was armed, then shot the bad guy. The original shooter and the guard were taken to the hospital.
You cannot carry on an expired CCW permit in Nevada. There is no grace period. The 60-day period refers to people moving in to Nevada carrying on their former state's permit. So once again, if your permit expires, you cannot on an expired permit. You must openly carry.
Should you choose to ignore the law, you better hope the cop is cool or the DA doesn't want to bother prosecuting. CCW without a permit is a FELONY.
The only possible exemption is for those whose permits expired on or after 3/12/2020 to 7/15/2020. Those permits were extended until 7/15/2020. No, there is no grace period or day count. Your expired permit is considered a temporary extension under existing authority until 7/15/2020. No, not 60 days after 7/15/2020, not 90 days after 7/15/2020. The grace period ends 7/15/2020.
So if your permit expired and you're waiting for an appointment to renew your permit and get a permit, you must openly carry in the interim. Don't worry, it's not a big deal in Nevada. This mainly affects those in Clark and Washoe Counties which are being deluged by applications delayed by the COVID-19 closures. Expect the 120 approval period to be the wait time after you submitted your application.

UPDATE: Law enforcement confirms okay to wear mask and carry a gun
Gov. Sisolak is debating an "enhanced" mask policy, i.e. everyone is required to wear a mask in public. Why? Because California did it and the COVID numbers are going up.
Is it illegal to wear a mask while armed in Nevada? No, it is not. You may wear a mask while carrying a firearm.
We're not here to debate if you should wear a mask or not; in crowded environments, it may help, but the official messages from the scientific/medical community has been so mixed and confusing it's hard to take them seriously.
We ask, when did "flatten the curve" become a license for unending restrictions on us and continued threats? It is clear that the government has lost all legitimacy and must rule by force. Thankfully, the cops have better things to do that arrest people for not wearing a mask.
The Nevada Independent
The governor is calling a special session of the Legislature; could guns be on the table?
On the surface, no. The state constitution is quite specific that special sessions can only deal with the matter they were convened for, which would be coronavirus relief.
Art 4. Sec. 2A. Special sessions of Legislature: Procedure for convening; precedence; limitations on business and duration; void actions.
Art 5. Sec. 9. Special sessions of Legislature: Authority of Governor; limitations on business and duration; void actions.
The state constitution requires two votes, in separate sessions, so a 2020 special session would be the first vote and the second vote would be in the 2021 regular session. Following that, the income tax must be approved on the ballot by the voters before it becomes law.
As for any details about guns, that's unknown. Special sessions can only deal with the reason they are called, the COVID-19 crisis, and it would be difficult to work a gun control bill in, but not impossible. We've seen the Legislature ignore constitutional provisions before.
Right now, it depends on how the need for the session is worded on what can be proposed. A narrow financial need due to COVID-19 would be hard to stretch against guns.
The one thing they could do is argue that coronavirus related to states of emergencies and target the law protecting the Second Amendment during a state of emergency, but the federal court battle to protect that might be too high of a hill to climb. Like I said, Sisolak is already unpopular enough. Secondly, a repeal of that law would just confirm why it was enacted in the first place.
One thing is clear: taxes are going to go up.
Despite damn good circumstantial evidence, and in a few cases greater than that, show that the provocation for the protests turning into riots was done by Leftists. Never mind focusing on Antifa fueling the circumstances, let's blame the right-wing fringe minority for their reaction to large-scale Leftist terrorism.
As for the the normal people who enjoy the boogaloo meme, the Second Amendment is about resisting Leftist terrorism and massive unrest like we've been seeing. That's the whole point of it, and yet, despite the overwhelming majority of everything the right wing protesters have been involved with being peaceful, we're maligned as terrorists.
Does anyone in the DOJ and FBI have the balls to go after real terrorists and subversives, or are they all busy trying to catch the idiots LARPing and playing Internet commando?
Today marks the sixth anniversary of the assassination of Officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo by two crazy would-be revolutionaries (who were also classic losers). The officers were eating lunch at a pizza restaurant when they were shot.
Concealed carrier Joseph Wilcox attempted to intervene when the two murderers entered a Walmart. Unfortunately, as Wilcox was engaging the male half of the killers, he was unaware that the wife was covering her husband from a distance. Before Wilcox, who ran towards danger, could engage the male murderer, the wife shot and killed him.
The wife later committed suicide during the barricade situation. SWAT killed the husband. The two losers were motivated by anti-government/police feelings and came to Nevada to participate in the Bundy standoff.
Review-Journal: Las Vegas protests raise gun control questions
Metro admitted that officers who killed the the "heavily armed" man outside the federal courthouse didn't have body cams. Let's hope security cameras from the courthouse captured what was going on.
One crazy dude at a protest organized and lead by Leftists doesn't mean there is a problem. If the laws against murder didn't stop the piece of crap that shot Officer Mikalonis from trying that or Steven Paddock from blasting the concert, what does this idiot politician care think another law will do? Time and time again, for two hundred years, gun control laws have only affected the law-abiding.
A few things of note. Metro's lobbyist Chuck Callaway isn't calling for this, notoriously anti-gun Democratic county commissioner Justin Jones is.
“We can have this discussion about strollers and purses, but we ought to also be having the discussion about Metro being a partner at the Legislature in ensuring that we can protect your officers from gun violence,” Commissioner Justin Jones told Metropolitan Police Department lobbyist Chuck Callaway, who was advocating for the backpack ban and previously did not support county efforts for authority over gun law.
Jones, a Democrat like all fellow commissioners, had previously argued for local gun control: He testified in favor of a bill introduced by Democratic Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui during last year’s legislative session that would have, in part, restored local governments’ authority to regulate firearms.
So they want to ban firearms from the Strip/events. Following the bag ban, this will probably apply to special events, like protests and New Years' Eve. Will there be a serious study to see if this is the solution to the problem or if there even is a problem? Nope. Michael Bloomberg's money has bought and paid for an anti-gun Legislature.
The premise is a stupid one. All it does is stop stupid or undetermined people from bringing guns, but that never stopped a politician. Steven Paddock shot from a hotel room in the Mandalay Bay hundreds of yard to rain bullets down inside a security perimeter. Someone with a rifle could easily kill people inside a "secure zone." The ballistic trajectory of .30 caliber rifle is over a mile. Why not do what author Matt Bracken wrote about and fire in a ballistic trajectory, sort of like artillery?
Heaven help us if jihadis or rogue soldiers get their hands on a mortar. Or suicide bombers with explosives under their parkas. Or screw the large events, target people away from them. Jones' proposal is whack-a-mole hitting at the wrong holes.
Note to the feds and cops reading this: Nevada Carry doesn't support the boogaloo or assassinating people. Revolution is the fantasy of a madman. All we want is to be able to enjoy the Big Special Thing without worrying about being disarmed as we walk through a dark parking garage at 2 AM or stand around the Legislature peacefully with our rifles. Remember, there was no violence at any of the pro-gun/conservative protests. It was the Leftists that started this.
Will Washoe County glom on? When firearms were banned from school grounds in the '80s because gang members were coming to high schools armed, colleges jumped on the bandwagon because they wanted to, not because there was a problem.
There is the very real danger of a "narrow" infringement growing beyond just NYE and protests. Surely some casinos are salivating at disarming customers, which will absolutely piss off the hundreds of thousand of gun owners in the valley. You think locals we're PO'd about having to pay for parking?
While these changes are not needed, at the very least the proposed change needs to specify limited areas and duration as well as permitting at a minimum legal concealed carry. A federal court might actually side with people that carrying firearms at a protest is protected political speech. Any wider ban would certainly result in successful legal challenge under the Nevada and federal constitutions. The state constitution is quite specific about the right to bear arms.
Hold your nose and vote Republican. It's the only way to save our rights and our freedom.
Some of this comes from law enforcement. The rest has been gleaned from social media. Google RUMINT and open source intelligence.
Supposedly, organized protests will again occur in Las Vegas Friday-Sunday.
Friday 5 PM: 951 W Lake Mead (Kianga Isoke Park). A march will be included (not sure where).
Saturday 5 PM: The organizers will release the location one hour prior to the protest. This is to stymie any resistance/police response until the last minute. (The secrecy is concerning because it may indicate they want to do something dangerous).
Apparently, Walmarts are to be specifically targeted. One in particular is the one near Fiesta Casino. So be prepared for Walmarts to be looted and/or closed.
Some are stating that for protests in Kingman, AZ, people are being bussed in from Phoenix, CA, and NV.
