    Costumes that have toy or fake guns or knives not allowed on the LV Strip.

    Just heard on the news 11:00 pm channel 13 a new law is going into affect banning the street performers on the Strip from having any performing object that could be dangerous to the public using the sidewalks. Such as juggling items, acts that use ropes and so on. Costumes that have toy or fake guns or knives also not allowed.
    Time for a strip walk.

    I just want to say good for them. Speaking as a dad that once had his kid's super hero toy confiscated because it had a holstered firearm molded into the toys torso I can say for certainty that the government cannot do enough to vilify guns and their evil nature. In fact I look forward to the day when their is a nation wide all-personnel 8:30pm curfew in effect year round! ALong, of course, with a nation wide ban on all firearms. It's really the only way to keep the sheep safe.

    In response, instead of carrying toy or fake guns or knives as part of the costumes they should start carrying real guns and knives.

    I guess I don't have to tell you what I'll be carrying while I take my youngster out trick or treating.

    Although I would put this out there, even though I NEVER give this kind of advice, be careful when your out. Please don't shoot a "vampire" because you feel afraid. Use common sense.

    The right to bear toys/props is not protected by the constitution.

    Excuse me Mr. Storm Trooper, but do you have a blue card for that blaster?

    "Dangerous items" banned on Las Vegas strip?

    I just read in the Reno Gazette Journal that it was voted on Tuesday to ban all "dangerous items" from the strip. This includes toy guns, blades longer than 3 inches, anything that shoots a flame or other projectile. I know this is illegal and technically can't be enforced but from what I heard about Vegas and Metro they will f*** you anyways. What can be done about this? Seems like Vegas is turning into Kommiefornia.

    "The ban does not apply to firearms." according to article in the Review Journal. There is another thread posted about this as well.

    Ok. The RGJ made it sound like firearms were included in that ban.

    Just a thought, but aren't air pistol/rifles catagorized along with firearms? What is going to determine what is an imitation weapon?

    As stated in the first posting on this, fake and toy guns are not protected by the second amendment and I will add or the preemptive law.

    don't do it, some idiot in Tennessee got arrested for OC of a draco with a tip he painted red to resemble a toy.
    Then he tried to get a lawsuit going, represented himself and almost got OC banned in an entire circuit court district.

    plus the guy spammed all the gun boards with obnoxious messages after he was rightfully banned everywhere.

    Why would you carry a toy gun? Carry a real one.
