    Mesquite

    It was asked on another thread what the laws were in Mesquite NV concerning registration.

    No there is no ordinance concerning Registration. Therefore as I understand it, Mesquite being an incorporated city (May 1984), citizens of Mesquite do not have to register their handguns. That makes Boulder City and Mesquite registration free zones within Clark County.

    Though the city ordinance concerning conceal carry points to and follows state law, it could be interpreted as banning open carry within the city limits. It is actually an illegal ordinance as it would come under preemption no matter how you look at it because it was codified in 2008.

    I wonder if anyone lives up in Mesquite who could correct them on this?

    Does this type of registration law also apply to my wife and I who live up on base? We are technically our own city and don't have registration laws except the "register them to the base" rule...

    That's a real good question. What is your official state of residence? Can you check through channels on what the military’s view on this is? I'd be curious to know.
