    The school/1000 ft requirement is a federal law so it's technically in effect anywhere in the US. I haven't heard of anyone enforcing this law as it is likely unconstitutional (in fact, a very similar law was ruled by SCOTUS as just that).

    No permit is necessary for OC, but be advised that some police mistakenly apply the Clark County registration requirement upon visitors. Just remember, if approached by law enforcement, REFUSE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. A search of this forum will show a visitor from Pennsylvania had his firearm confiscated because it was not registered, even though the law clearly states the registration requirement is for residents only, or those in town greater than 60 days. The firearm was returned to him, but I imagine it was a PITA to have to deal with.

    IANAL and cannot give legal advice. I can just tell you that I personally do not consider that law as I travel and go about my business. I have no children and have nothing to do with a school, so I'm not even sure where the schools are in my neighborhood, nor do I care. A person who lives within 1000 ft of a school would be breaking that law every time they went for a walk or left in their car.

    The Supreme Court ruled the original version of the law unconstitutional and congress rewrote it saying that it involved interstate commerce, but because they simply say it is constitutional does not necessarily make it so.

    If you don't see a lot of Vegas people replying, IMHO it's cause we agree with Tim. He's really good with all this knowledge. I live near a school, and travel a road in which to get to work that takes me within 1000 ft. But I don't stop or get out or anything, it's really not a big deal if you're not going INTO the school.

    Avoid the strip with OC, though not illegal, it's just like not going down the street shouting stupid things just cause you can...

    No permit, no blue card needed. Tim touched on this, but its something specifically a vegas cop will ask you, and you don't need. He said refuse all questions...well he means if a cop asks for a blue card, you don't need one, and that's what happened to the PA guy. The pa guy even knew the law (though he was unsure of it), and the cop(s) did not know them, and took his property.

    So avoid that. You don't live here, don't need a blue card (which is a registration card for clark county residents for guns that can be concealed). Reno, Parhump, all else don't even need them, but it's like the first question you're asked by police. If you're not driving a vehicle, you don't even need to provide police with a cali driver lisc. That goes along with the refuse all questions thing Tim said. Getting into that - it's all personal preference, which we love to debate a lot on this and a few other forums as to how cooperative to be with law enforcement - it's rather fun. I'm no lawyer, just tryin to help with only how I think I understand things.

    Read up on the statutes, there's like 10 max. There's a thread with a printout or cheat sheet or some sorta card with them, i'm too tired to link i'm very sorry, but its easy to find a few threads down from this. If you read those you'll be all set. We welcome your stay and your money, and your guns here in NV =D
