I still don't understand what a Utah CCW overrides here. If I have a Utah CCW, I still have to follow these rules? Or no?

Yes, you have to follow what ever the NV laws are. The Utah CCW lets you carry in NV with out getting an NV CCW. Regardless if you have Utah or who ever they (NV) recognize, you have to follow the laws of NV.

That's what I thought. So, no CCW in North Las Vegas. That sucks. That's where I need it the most and actually why I got the Utah CCW.

If I remember correctly, any Nevada city/town that is under 440,000 in population, do not have to follow State firearms laws and can have thier own laws in regards to firearms/ccw's.... North Laws Vegas is only approx 256,000 in population....

As an FYI, Utah CCW laws are changing this year in mostly a good way, but I am not sure if it will have any effect on North Las Vegas.... A lot of thier laws are changing on 5-12-2009. Since I no longer do the Utah CCW, I will not be keeping up on them....

Probably a good idea to steer clear of NLV with or without a sidearm. Not a nice place.

I can't steer clear of it since I work up there each month.

I heard rumor that North Las Vegas was going to be forced into adopting Nevada or at least Clark County law and allowing CCW holders there, but I could be wrong. Actually, I think Hansen mentioned something to that effect. Hansen? Are those the 5/12/09 changes that you know of?

Now I just need my CCW to show up...

The 5/12/2009 changes are for Utah Laws changes not Nevada.... I don't really know what is up with Vegas too much, I really don't keep up with thier law.

Nevada does not recognize Utah CCWs any longer. They dropped Utah and Florida from the list of recognized permits last year. We need to push to get our Arizona CCWs recognized in Nevada. The Executive Director of the Nevada Sheriff's and Chief's Association (Frank Adams) says that the main obstacle to this recognition is that the AZ-DPS database of CCWs is not available to Nevada LEOs. In an email to me Frank said "Our law requires that the data base be available through the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications Network which our Nevada officers would have access to. When Arizona changes is data base to be accessible to Nevada officers, then I think that we will reconsider recognizing Arizona's CCW permits in Nevada." We need to encourage the AZ-DPS CCW Unit to see that this occurs. I have emailed them and their IT people are working on it.

Have we already discussed car carry in NV? IIRC, the law is silent on it, which means it's legal. I'm going to Vegas next weekend. And I was just watching an episode of Cops where a guy got busted in Vegas for picking up a hooker. Cop searched his truck for the used condom and came across a S&W .357 revolver. He let the guy go and made no mention of the gun whatsoever. I know it's just a tv show, but I'm hoping this is how most NV cops view car carry.

Rick,

From my Nevada CCW class in DEC09:

Except in North Las Vegas (Blue Residential Street Signs) or Boulder City without a Concealed Firearms Permit, You may have a loaded gun anywhere in the car without a holster or a case without a permit.

The instructor, who was a current LEO stated: “EVERYONE in Nevada has a loaded gun in the car.” He was surely exaggerating but his point was that LEOs expect everyone to have a firearm in the car and there is nothing wrong with doing so.

Declaimer: I am not a lawyer. This is just what I was told by the CCW instructor.

So that is just a LV/NLV law, not state law? Because:

The only places in the entire state that disallow car carry are NLV and Boulder City? Even Reno/Sparks is alright?
I ask because I am heading to Reno for a visit very soon and would like to know where I stand...

Nevada Has a preemption law. No City or town shall make their own regulations on firearms laws. Those laws are bogus. Doesn't mean they wont be enforced. Good ol' government, doing as they please. Even in Nevada.

Interesting, since every Nevada resident I know, esp those who teach firearms / CCW stuff there, say that the state preemption law doesn't apply to NLV or BC. They also report that nobody has bothered to challenge those laws in court, either. Funny thing...The Man has unlimited time and funds to prove a point. Most people do not.
