Nevada, The Nevada State constitution states: “Every citizen has the right to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes.”

Nevada is a traditional open carry state with very complete state preemption of firearms laws. However in direct conflict with state laws several jurisdictions have passed and are enforcing "Deadly Weapons" laws which conflict with the preemption laws, and whose legality is therefore at issue. Were this not the case, Nevada would qualify as a "Gold Star" open carry state. Effective Oct 1, 2007 is legislation that prohibits counties/cities/towns from enacting ordinances more restrictive than state law – the legislature reserves for itself the right to legislate firearms law. This law is retroactive.

Nevada is a shall-issue state, meaning concealed carry permits must be issued to qualified applicants. Permits are issued by local law enforcement agencies at a cost of $105 and are valid for five years. Unlike most states, Nevada requires permit holders to list each gun they intend to carry on the permit and qualify with those guns. The requirement excludes revolvers, which do not have to be listed individually. A handgun safety course is required, along with a background check, before permits can be issued.

North Las Vegas Warning: The incorporated city of North Las Vegas has a city ordinance that prohibits the transportation of loaded guns in vehicles. Although this ordinance is in violation of NRS 268.418, the City of NLV has simply decided to ignore the state law. You may be cited, arrested, and prosecuted by the City of NLV for violating this ordinance (even though state law says they can't have the ordinance in the first place). A lawsuit has been filed against the City of NLV in Nevada District Court seeking to have the ordinance repealed.

Governor Brian Sandoval (R) vetoed Senate Bill 221.  SB 221 is misguided gun control legislation being forced on law-abiding citizens of Nevada by extremist New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his national anti-gun organization, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG).

The Governor’s office invited comments from the state’s residents in regards to SB 221 and the overwhelming response with to kill the bill, so hearing his citizens the Governor vetoed the bill!

Nevada, In our society it always seems that laws are passed due to a small vocal group pushing their personal political agendas that did not necessarily represent the true voice or will of the majority of the people. This has been clearly evident with the issue of Gun control laws, where a small well-funded group has been able to impose their personal views into political action in the form of laws as they are not opposed with people or groups organized enough to be able to be properly heard. The Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval decided he would give the people a voice by asking the citizens to the state to call him and let him know what they think.

“The office of Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has been flooded with so many calls requesting the veto of a gun control bill that the office had to set up an automated call system. Sandoval already said he would veto the bill, but that hasn’t stopped 2,200 people from calling his office on Wednesday between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The office estimates that about 80 percent of the callers have requested that Sandoval veto the bill.”

The defeat of the controversial legislation was viewed as a major development with implications that extend far beyond Nevada’s borders. Gun-rights supporters celebrated the veto, saying it showed that out-of-touch billionaires and their bogus polls were losing the nationwide battle to strip Americans’ God-given right to keep and bear arms. Anti-gun zealots, meanwhile, howled about the embarrassing defeat and vowed to press forward with their attack on the Second Amendment.

Nevada is a traditional open carry state with complete state preemption of firearms laws. However, Clark County is grandfathered so as to continue a “Deadly Weapons” registration scheme. Fortunately, Nevada law exempts travelers to and through Nevada from these registration requirements for 60 days.
