    Open Carry in Clark County,NV

    I live in Henderson,NV. I've lived here for 10 years now and have never seen anyone open carrying a firearm. Is it legal to OC in Henderson,NV? Is it one of those things where Ya it's legal but get ready to be thrown down on the sidewalk by the cops??Thank you-Raptor1.

    Raptor1:

    In The State of Nevada, it is Legal to Openly Carry a Firearm in Public so as long as The Person doing so is NOT Prohibited under either: 1. Federal Law OR 2. State Law; from Possessing The Firearm in Question.

    In Accordance with Nevada Revised Statute NRS 268.418, such Matters are Reserved to Nevada State, to The Exclusion of Cities, except as provided under 2. AND 3. of that Revised Statute.

    Therefore, Open Carry is Lawful so as long as The Person who is doing so may Lawfully Possess such Firearm.

    The Nevada forum has much information, and this question will receive much more valid response there.

    I have reported it to have it moved for you.

    No, your responses are valid. I crafted my statement poorly.

    "receive more responses" is better.

    I OCed while I was there (NV doesn't recognize any of my concealed carry licenses), no issue.

    This PDF may help guide you, but it is not legal advice and one should read the laws for themselves:
