    New guy here

    A friendly hello to everyone, this is my first post here. I have recently decided that I want to start to OC and I have been researching a lot. I have lived here for a little over a year and have got real sick on not having a weapon in my home, kinda figured I have it why not carry it. It wont be an everyday thing as I cant take a weapon to work with me and I rarely leave my home on work days other than to go to work. so mainly when I'm out and about on the weekends and what not. The thing is I live in North Las Vegas (which I understand to be gun unfriendly correct me if I'm wrong) and I can't really find a definite answer on the status of the whole deadly weapon prohibited in vehicles thing. How does this affect me in having a OC weapon in or out of a vehicle. Its "illegal" to have it in my truck but if I pull it off my hip and when I get pulled over say I'm going to the shooting range its magically legal because then it would be for recreation and not personal safety?

    Please shed some light on this for me any info will be greatly appreciated. I just want to be as informed as I can be.

    Thank you
    Alex

    You are legal by state law. This does not mean NLV's notorious police will not hassle you about it. If they don't like the way you look at the same time, they may even arrest and charge you for it. Since the NLV court is of non-record, you cannot use state law to win. You are guaranteed to win the appeal, however, and it will be at this point that they will drop the charges to keep from getting reamed by the State.

    Now, that said, I grew up in NLV. I did not open carry or have a weapon visible in my vehicle, but we always had guns with us. We never needed our stories because we were never pulled over except for minor traffic stuff on occasion and that is all we discussed with the officer.

    Many of us have open carried in NLV, but I have only done so at my destinations and en route; I've never had to test a police officer's opinion on the matter.

    I believe we have discussed this in another thread.

    Where in the NRS does it say that??

    This subject has been discussed at length here. Some threads of interest are:

    NV Handgun laws while in a vehicle?

    Vehicle OC in North Las Vegas?

    Thanks for the replies everyone, I just wanted to make sure everything I have been reading is still true. I don't have a NV CC but that seems like the best way to go. Some guys at work were telling me to just go get the AZ cc permit since all I needed was my finger prints, DD214, and the money or so he said. Honestly with a matter this sensitive I wouldn't want to risk running into issues with that. I'm active duty military with my home of record as Texas and a California drivers license(tho it has my NV address on it), any of this a problem going through the application process here?

    Thanks again everyone

    It shouldn't be a problem to get your CCW here because you can show yours orders which state that you are stationed here and for how long. My husband is active duty here at Nellis and we are going to get our CCW permits as well. There are a lot of places that offer free classes and then you just pay the fees and go through the application junk.

    If you are a Nevada resident, in order for a concealed firearm permit to matter, it must be issued by the county which you are a resident of.

    In my opinion, NLV ordinances are in violation of state law.

    And in the opinion of the City of North Las Vegas City Council, Chief of Police, City Attorney, etc., etc., they are not.
