    Question NLV - OC in a car?

    I'm new to the open carry scene and I am sure this has been asked before... but the search function doesn't seem to work well for me... anyhow my question relates to open carrying in a vehicle while in North Las Vegas. First... this:

    Vehicles In a vehicle, a weapon may be concealed anywhere within the vehicle, or it may be out in the open within the vehicle. The only place it may not be when in a vehicle is concealed upon a person, such as under a jacket or in a pocket, unless that person has a concealed firearm permit.

    According to NRS 503.165 one may not have in a vehicle any rifle or a shotgun with the chamber loaded. Rifles and shotguns may contain a fully loaded magazine however. Handguns are fine fully loaded including with a loaded chamber.
    Now I couldn't resist and called NLVPD and inquired. They told me that in order to legally "open carry a handgun in a vehicle" that I had to have the weapon unloaded. No rounds chambered. No magazine in the firearm. This is to "legally openly carry a handgun in a vehicle" in NLV. This seems to contradict NRS 503.165 however.

    Can someone offer me some clarification?

    Next time, resist.

    NEVER ask a cop what the law is. First, IT IS NOT THEIR JOB TO KNOW. Second, they are usually ignorant of the law when it is not something obvious or something they deal with everyday. Third, they can and WILL lie to you, and they are allowed by law to knowingly do so.

    Also, they MIGHT be correctly telling you a local ordinance, without telling you (on purpose) that it is completely unenforceable because it itself is in violation of state law. This is mostly what happened to you in this instance. Now, there are some cases where NLV has enforced this ordinance, but I've only heard about it against those who were already on the hook for thug-like behavior. And even those guys got those charges dropped (eventually) if they fought them.

    Many of us OC in NLV. We don't do anything special whether we are in our vehicles or not, and that includes walking in and out of pubs. And there is no permit required; no ID, neither.

    NEVER ask a cop what the law is. Not only is it not their job to know, BUT YOU ONLY ENCOURAGE THEM to be the guy that tells people what the law is.

    Now, when you called NLVPD, who did you talk to? Beat cop? Desk sergeant? The nice lady that answered the phone? Who?

    Remember, if cops knew the law, they'd be lawyers, not cops.

    I had a cop tell me yesterday that if a SCOTUS opinion conflicts with a state law then the state law prevails.

    Here are the applicable City of North Las Vegas Municipal Ordinances:

    9.32.080 - Deadly weapon prohibited in vehicle—Exceptions

    It is unlawful for any person to have in his possession in any automobile, truck, motorcycle, or any other type of vehicle any dangerous or deadly weapon, but this restriction shall not be deemed to prohibit the carrying of ordinary tools or equipment carried in good faith for uses of honest work, trade or business, or for the purpose of legitimate sport or recreation.


    9.32.040 - Dangerous or deadly weapon defined

    The term "dangerous or deadly weapons" includes, but is not limited to, any dirk or dagger; any knife with a blade three inches or more in length, and any snap-blade or spring-blade knife, regardless of the length of the blade; any ice pick or similar sharp stabbing tool; any straight edge razor or any razor blade fitted to a handle; any dangerous or deadly weapon within the meaning of any law of this state restricting the use thereof; and any cutting, stabbing, or bludgeoning weapon or device capable of inflicting grievous bodily harm; and any firearm other than (a) one carried pursuant to a valid permit, issued by a duly authorized government authority, or (b) an ordinary rifle or shotgun lawfully carried for purposes of hunting or other lawful sport.



    North Las Vegas cops will cite and arrest for violations of the city ordinance... depending on the circumstance and the "whim" of the cop. I have personal knowledge of that. However, fighting such citations has most always resulted in the city dismissing the charge.

    As far as asking those in the CNLV Police Department (or any other PD for that matter) as to what "the law" is... you might just as well ask my 8 year old grand daughter. They (the PD) repeat what has been "told" to them by whomever and they generally have no idea what they are talking about... any answer (and the answer is usually one that is detrimental to the citizen and beneficial to the PD) is a "good" one from their perspective.

    The ordinance excludes the transportation to and from a shooting range.

    If you read the statute carefully it exclude nearly any lawful purpose. eliminating any legitimate purpose for the Ordinance.

    9.32.080 - Deadly weapon prohibited in vehicle—Exceptions

    It is unlawful for any person to have in his possession in any automobile, truck, motorcycle, or any other type of vehicle any dangerous or deadly weapon, but this restriction shall not be deemed to prohibit the carrying of ordinary tools or equipment carried in good faith for uses of honest work, trade or business, or for the purpose of legitimate sport or recreation.

    This is the part I believe they (those who are tasked with upholding our rights) want to enforce, but do not want to run into a court decision as it contrasts with the constitution.

    I feel compelled to ask: Have you ever been pulled over? I've OC'd daily for the last few months and have never been pulled over [I drive awesomely] so I have no local experience dealing with that. Still, for the good of the community, I'm curious as to how you handled it --if, in fact you have been pulled over.

    No it doesn't: by your own admission and the statue presented, read CAREFULLY that it says "shall not be deemed to prohibit the carrying of ordinary tools or equipment carried in good faith for uses of honest work, trade or business, or for the purpose of legitimate sport or recreation". More later.

    From what you've sited, it sounds like I should be worried that OC'ing in a vehicle as the OCing of a pistol doesn't seem to be addressed directly in this?

    For the new people, is a gun a tool or is it more important that it be carried in good faith?

    Is lawfully carried a semantic or legal term?

    All the talk here YET the people mostly likely to site the NRS's never seem to answer a question with any level of CONFIDENCE.

    I've been pulled over plenty of times by every jurisdiction in Clark County except for City of Boulder City and City of Mesquite, and that includes tribal police. North Las Vegas police have never hassled me for being openly armed or with other guns in my vehicle, even without knowing I had a permit. The two most heinously stupid disarmings were from a Henderson police officer and a State Trooper.

    I honestly don't know what you mean by your last statement.

    I second what MAC702 said about your last statment. From all accounts here and on other threads, the people here a extremely knowledgeable and convey their view points with solidarity and conviction. Your last statement does seem confusing.

    I was pulled over one time by metro while OC. I was not disarmed. This was before the carry of the blue card was clarified and was asked if I had one. That happened in 2008 I think.

    OK Turbo you can argue the laws all day long, I personally have participated in the "trash pick up in front of NLVPD to protest their ordinance, and have carried openly there as much as possible. I have been pulled over by them, pulled up next to them on my motorcycle OC, open carried in the NLPD headquarters, written court briefs for a friend that got arrested for the ordinance. (it got dismissed) Not trying to build a resume, I am basically trying to tell you that you can get arrested while singing "Amazing Grace, in church." That does not mean it will stick, or that it is right! If you are going to let that fear deprive you of life, I support you, but I have my threshold... and they can hang that (in my mind) unlawful ordinance over someone Else's head. I would be happy to roll NLV with you!

    Okay… from a practical and self-experienced point of view (and I do know what the “law” is, that is the intricacies of the CNLV ordinance – visa-vi the Nevada preemption and all that), here’s what is likely to happen in a “real life” scenario. IF you are traveling in your car (or motorcycle) with your lawfully possessed sidearm strapped to your hip and a NLV cop pulls you over for a suspected traffic violation (nothing associated with OC), he or she may very well take issue. IF (for those traveling in a car where it might not be obvious to the officer that you are armed), you make it known to the officer that you are OCing or it is “discovered,” he or she MAY “freak out” (seen it happen in this situation), and immediately treat you as a CRIMINAL THREAT. He or she will “run” your serial number in an attempt to determine the “status” of your firearm (note: the system they use to “run” and determine the “status” of your firearm is fraught with problems and many times they are either unwilling or unable to make that determination on-site). Whether or not they can make a determination, the stop MAY result in an arrest anyway – booking into jail – search and impound of your vehicle, confiscation of your firearm, and a charge that you ARE in violation of the CNLV ordinance. That charge would be in addition to any other traffic violation(s) you may also be charged with. Now, will the charge be successfully prosecuted in court? Not the least bit likely. But would it or did it stop the cop from doing what’s been done? From my personal experience, no it would not and it DID NOT. There’s nothing that could or did stop an overnite stay in the cross-bar hotel, the confiscation of the firearm, and a search and impound of the vehicle. The charge of violating the CNLV ordinance never got to court, but that was little consolation for the night in jail, the firearm “tied up in red tape” for months, and the vehicle impound fee. So, bottom line, the NLV cops will do just about what they want and when they want , and that’s true about most any law enforcement encounter. Having said all this, however, my “habits” re: OCing, haven’t, don’t, and won’t be altered when traveling by vehicle within the “sacred and hallowed” boundaries of the “great city” of North Las Vegas.

    And I think you were saying this, but this is no matter what jurisdiction you are in. NLV is not special, except in some piss-ant illegal ordnance that is never mentioned outside of the Internet or in the company of someone already being a thug.

    Where NLV's trashiness really shines is in their court of non-record where they can convict you for anything they want, though appeals are automatically granted because of this; and you have to wait for a real court to actually make a lawful ruling.

    Again, though, this really doesn't affect normal people much.

    Absolutely... I'm reminded of what one of those "honorable" CNLV judges stated in open court to a defendant: "The law does not matter in MY court." Nothing much left to be said, huh?

    The municipal codes are invalid because of this:
    NRS 268.418  Limited authority to regulate firearms; restrictions concerning registration of firearms in city in county whose population is 700,000 or more.
    1.  Except as otherwise provided by specific statute, the Legislature reserves for itself such rights and powers as are necessary to regulate the transfer, sale, purchase, possession, ownership, transportation, registration and licensing of firearms and ammunition in Nevada, and no city may infringe upon those rights and powers. As used in this subsection, “firearm” means any weapon from which a projectile is discharged by means of an explosive, spring, gas, air or other force.
    2.  The governing body of a city may proscribe by ordinance or regulation the unsafe discharge of firearms.
    3.  If the governing body of a city in a county whose population is 700,000 or more has required by ordinance or regulation adopted before June 13, 1989, the registration of a firearm capable of being concealed, the governing body shall amend such an ordinance or regulation to require:
    (a) A period of at least 60 days of residency in the city before registration of such a firearm is required.
    (b) A period of at least 72 hours for the registration of a pistol by a resident of the city upon transfer of title to the pistol to the resident by purchase, gift or any other transfer.
    4.  Except as otherwise provided in subsection 1, as used in this section:
    (a) “Firearm” means any device designed to be used as a weapon from which a projectile may be expelled through the barrel by the force of any explosion or other form of combustion.
    (b) “Firearm capable of being concealed” includes all firearms having a barrel less than 12 inches in length.
    (c) “Pistol” means a firearm capable of being concealed that is intended to be aimed and fired with one hand.
    (Added to NRS by 1989, 652; A 2007, 1289; 2011, 1159)
    But just because the code is a violation of state law doesn't mean that the police and the lower courts will recognize this fact.

    The hard thing is getting the government to follow the law. One could follow the laws, but you could still be arrested by incompetent cops, prosecuted by incompetent attorneys, and convicted by incompetent judges and ignorant juries.

    My guess is that the locals will not enforce the illegal codes because they know if they do they are likely to be overturned. But they like them on the books because they cause fear, uncertainty, and doubt.

    Correct me if I am using the wrong wording or got this incorrect. NLV courts are courts of no records? There is no recordings of the proceedings, no one is allowed to have any type of recording device?

    I've never been in one. I'm taking it to mean that the findings of the court are not official to the state of NV. As such, you are automatically allowed to appeal any ruling to a NV-recognized court.

    I've never cared to research it further, yet. I wonder what authority they have to have a "court" if it isn't "of record."

    I can just see someone like me in there saying: May it please the "court...," and using large hand gestures for the quotation marks.

    You are correct 28kfps, NLV and Boulder City are both Courts of non record in Clark County, If you appeal a Criminal conviction, IE: traffic ticket from either of these Courts, You get what is called a Trial De Novo (SP) In legal speak it means "Do Over" as if the first one never happened. The courts themselves are unsure how to act, whenever challenged on this (I have personally challenged both of these political subdivisions)

    It appears that the State somehow substantiated Courts of non record for municipality's who's Court system is NRS deficient. NLV has a record of electing Judges (Ex Cops) who had no legal background. While Victor Miller in Boulder City does have a legal background, The City council for some reason has not put their Court system in compliance with the laws of the State of Nevada. It could be that they do not want anyone to know what goes on in their courts. Not having a record certainly accomplishes that.

    It cost me $12.00 to appeal my helmet citation conviction to district court, and it was dismissed. It cost me $50.00 to appeal the Boulder City ticket, as they admitted they had not experienced an appeal before and decided to just charge a regular witness fee for the appeal. When I came across this situation I brought it up to some Attorney friends of mine, and they had never considered such a scheme. much less been aware of it. To this day (years later) it is still hush hush, and I encounter attorneys who have no understanding, over the court system in these two towns.

    I have successfully defended all of my convictions from these courts of non record, and have collected my costs for doing such including the $12 and $50 filing fees,. It is an important distinction to recognize. I had a NLV judge "Van Landshoot" specifically raise his voice in court and tell me "The law does not matter in my Court" boy was he right!

    Having gone down the road I have been down I would do this if I were cited or arrested in one of these city's.
    Cite: Go to court with 30 one dollar bills (exact change) and three copies "filled out of the one page form obtained by PM'ing DTOM, If the Judge does not dismiss ask for the payment plan, to pay and immediately go see a window lady to file your appeal. It is quite possible the window lady will tell you that you cannot appeal unless you "post bail" (pay your fine) I would ask for the law, policy, or any other reference to back up her claim. If after a few mins. she still wont accept your appeal form I woulds write "served in person on one of the copy's, let her know, and get the best description I could, before leaving. writing it on the form I am sending to District court. I then would go to the receptionist , tell her I am here to pay a ticket, She would give me a number, and I would take that as evidence and walk out. Note NLV is quick to call in the Marshall's so pushing should be done moderately)

    Appeal straight to District Court. now they are doing it electronically on I believe the 2nd floor of the RJC building. There are helpful lady's there. Or get a "wiznet acct" $3.00 per filing and no TSA style checkpoint.

    If arrested:
    In custody and at arraignment I would not make too much of a deal about it, as it is easier to work when you are not behind bars. However Clark County has a form called "Acknowledgement and waiver of rights" DO NOT SIGN IT! Have the Judge read you your charges: this way you have something to request from the record.

    Upon release, I would start asking for the record or transcripts of my arraignment, I do not consent to proceeding unless they can produce the charges against you. upon appeal, you will get a whole new arraignment. and Trial.

    There is a lot of info about this that I have not covered but it was good that 28kfps brought it up. I have somewhat moved on to Federal court in the fights i am in, but this is important and needs attention.

    DTOM, thanks foir the valuable information. I have run into 'Justice Courts' when I lived in AZ and though it's been a while and too late for me to appeal any decision; IIRC my research back then showed them as "courts of no record". The judge I went before was an elected official who also owned a photography shop; obviously without legal experience.

    There are 17 Municipal Courts in the state of Nevada. The Municipal Courts manage cases involving violations of traffic and misdemeanor ordinances that occur within the city limits of incorporated municipalities. Depending on the “whims” of the particular municipality, these municipal courts are or are not “courts of record.” Each of these courts is funded by the city and most of the funds collected by the Municipal Court go into the municipalities' general fund. The municipal courts are presided over by 30 Municipal Court judges with 8 of them also serving as Justices of the Peace.

    There are 43 Justice Courts in the state of Nevada. They handle misdemeanor crime and traffic matters, small claims disputes, evictions, and other civil matters less than $10,000. By statute, the justice courts are “courts of record.” The justices of the peace also preside over felony and gross misdemeanor arraignments and conduct preliminary hearings to determine if sufficient evidence exists to hold criminals for trial at District Court. Each county funds Justice Courts and the funds collected by the courts go to their respective county treasurer for disbursement to county and state entities. The Justice Courts are presided over by 75 Justices of the Peace with 8 of them also serving as Municipal Court judges.

    Do I need a "blue card" / registration to legally carry in Vegas? I.e. when I arrive I need to register my firearm with the PD?
    I want to keep our founding fathers' visions and rights for this country pure. I implore you to do the same.
