    I have read several opinions on signs, but can only find one reference to signs in NRS...and that pertains to Public buildings..

    But when I call the Sheriffs office they tell me they are legal and must be obeyed...Any thoughts??????

    I remember seeing a sign on Cashmen center at one of the gun shows, which had a county code number after it but cant remember what it was...

    He is full of it. Ask him what NRS makes such signs on private property enforceable.

    If it gives the NRS, that statute can be checked to see if it applies. NRS, iirc, only applies to Public buildings. If the building is a private business, the statute does not apply. Is the Cashman Center a public building within the NRS statute definition?

    Yes, it is. It is owned and operated by the LVCVA, a political subdivision of the State of Nevada

    Yes, if they are, they are breaking the law.

    Don't forget about exception 4(d) of NRS 202.3673. This exception states:

    The provisions of paragraph (b) of subsection 3 do not prohibit:

    4.(d). A permittee from carrying a concealed firearm while he or she is on the premises of the public building if the permittee has received written permission from the person in control of the public building to carry a concealed firearm while the permittee is on the premises of the public building.
    It may be that, as a paid vendor, these folks have gotten said permission. Maybe the permission is implied.

    This is course just an assumption on my part since I've never been a gun show vendor, and have never seen any of their written agreements.

    The only way you could OC at a gun show with a sign posted, is to stop at the front desk and have your weapon checked in and locked out with a tie wrap....same for CC if you tell them you are CC..

    I know and understand that. You said that a bunch of vendors were CC. I asked how do you know since they are CC.

    My thought is if there is a sign and you are OC then they will ask you leave, if you see a sign and are CC then does not matter, unless it is a public building like stated.
