Wow, thanks for the warm welcome.
First I think you should always tell a cop that you have a sidearm with you. Most ask if there are weapons in the car. I do this out of courtesy to the officer.
Remmy what do you do when the cop says are there any weapons in here? I think no matter where it is, you should tell the officer just to make it safer. If it moves and they see it, I bet your will be hauled out of the car, put in handcuffs and have some explaining to do. Also the cop may wonder why you are hiding the fact that you have a weapon.
I fully support everyones right to carry a sidearm. I have no problem if you want to open carry it on the strip, downtown, to the store or wherever. I only say that due to the amount of stupid drunk people on the Strip, it is safer to CC if you have the permit.
I may have mispoke about the felony part. From my understanding, signs with the NRS statue carrying more weight than the signs without. A business can ask you to leave for open carrying on their property.
I did not mean to rub anyone the wrong way or imply that OC is a bad thing.
Also from my understanding, state law is quiet on OC so we are able to do that. Some places, I hear that North Las Vegas is not friendly towards those that OC, will give you a hard time about it. My point was to get a CC permit and you don't have to worry about most of these things.
You are right that most people don't know you can legally OC in Las Vegas.
I just posted my opinions and it seems that most did not agree with them, and that is ok.
Thanks for listening.
