    Las Vegas: OC on the strip

    Two questions:
    First, how is LV Metro when it comes to people OC'ing on Las Vegas Blvd? Are they hassling people?

    Second, how is casino management when it comes to people walking through their casino while OC? I'm not talking about hanging around and gambling on the casino floor, I'm just talking about walking from my hotel room out to the sidewalk.

    I'm going to be in Las Vegas for an extended period of time in March, as my sister is getting married, so I will be bringing my firearm from Georgia. I hope to have time to apply for my Nevada carry permit, but until then, I'll have to OC.

    We rarely have anything but positive encounters with metro while on our occasional strip gatherings. Heres the thing. Metro has figured out that Open Carriers are often more versed in Nevada law than they are, so we're not the low hanging fruit. Because we tend to know better and we know how to invoke our rights, it's an incredible pain in their ass and a huge risk to **** with us. I say it's a risk, because you can almost set your watch by how fast they will be called before the citizen's review board if they step on our rights.

    Hotels are tricky things and they (management/security) tend not to know that your rights change when you are staying in one. In Nevada, your hotel room is now considered to be an extension of your home in the eyes of the law. Legally speaking, they cannot stop you from going to or coming from your new temporary residence, however they can ask that while you are using their amenities outside you hotel room that you secure your firearm either in your room or in the house lockup. While you are passing through the casino floor on your way to your room, take the most direct route to your room the exit without lingering. If noticed by security and they question you, explain that you are on your way to your room or on your way off the property. YOU CAN NOT BE KICKED OUT OF THE HOTEL FOR BEING ARMED!
