    Nevada Will No Longer Recognize Utah and Florida Right-to-Carry Permits

    Thursday, June 25, 2009

    Effective, July 1, Nevada will no longer recognize Right-to-Carry permits from Utah or Florida. They have, however, added Ohio and West Virginia as recognized states.

    Each May, the Nevada Department of Public Safety conducts an audit of states and their Right-to-Carry laws for the purpose of determining which states it will recognize.

    The Nevada DPS dropped Utah because it does not have a live fire requirement, which is a part of Nevada's training requirements. When the Nevada DPS first began its state by state audit of Right-to-Carry laws in 2007, DPS admitted to NRA representatives that they overlooked the live fire training requirement. After further review, they determined that Utah wasn't similar enough to keep it on the list of recognized states.

    Florida will no longer be recognized because its permits are now valid for seven years instead of five.

    The Nevada DPS and the Nevada Sheriffs and Chiefs will be hosting their annual Right-to-Carry forum in Carson City in August with a teleconference feed to Las Vegas. We encourage all members to attend this informational meeting. Details will be forthcoming.

    Please continue checking your email and www.NRAILA.org for updates.

    I return whatever i wish . Its called FREEDOWM OF RANDOMNESS IN A HECK . CLUSTERED DEFEATED CORn FORUM . Welcome to me

    Out of State Carry Concealed Weapon Permit Recognition

    Effective July 1, 2009

    In accordance with NRS 202.3689 (effective October 1, 2007) the State of Nevada will recognize the following States' CCW permit holders:

    Alaska
    Arkansas
    Kansas
    Louisiana
    Michigan
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    Ohio
    Tennessee
    West Virginia


    This law allows holders of valid permits from these states to carry a concealed weapon while in the State of Nevada. The permit must be in the possession of the issue at all times while carrying a firearm.

    Please note that Nevada no longer recognizes CCW permits issued by Utah and Florida. For additional information, please refer to the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association press release link: NVSCA CCW Press Release

      Nevada no longer recognizing UT and FL permits

      heh, there's always the national reciprocity law that's in the works.... heh, what do you think the chances are that it will pass before DEFCON? or before pigs fly?

      seriously, though... this is really good information to know and i appreciate folks who have brought it up. as least open carry is still legal. i can remember seeing Warlord's sidearm as he walked by the pool at what was possibly my first or second DEFCON and then noticing other people later on carrying also.

      you hardly see that anymore at con.

        You can still open carry in NV; right?

        Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

          Yes. Nevada is not "Open-Carry", by definition, as there is no law on the books that specifically allows it. But there is no law that disallows it either. That's the difference.

          Arizona actually has a law on the books that makes it legal.

          What does that mean?

          911 - What is your emergency?

          Freaked-out-civilian: There is a man with a gun (MWAG) walking down the street. He's kinda scruffy looking, with a goatee and black shirt with pictures of guns on it.

          Nevada: Ok mam, we will get an officer right out there to lay this man out on the pavement and see what it's about. Once we determine that he is in fact a law abiding citizen, we will allow him to pick his burned carcass up off the 120f asphalt and be on his merry way.

          Arizona: Ok mam, but has he actually violated any laws, threatened anyone? Have a nice day.

          Get it? Even though it is not ILLEGAL in Nevada to open carry, that doesn't mean the cops won't hassle you, given the circumstances. Yes, they are wrong for doing so, but that doesn't stop them.

          Details of a recent Open Carry detention, fascinating read

            The Thune Amendment (national CCW reciprocity) to the Defense Authorization Bill failed to get enough votes to pass.

            Yes, open carry is legal in NV (by default).
            However, LVMPD recommends that you do not open carry where all the tourists are at (the strip, casinos, etc). Due, to tourists (mostly from other countries) & new residents of NV (mostly from CA) not knowing the laws and calling the cops with "person with gun". Expect to be disarmed and detained in cuffs, while the LVMPD tries to figure out what you are doing. How long you are being held up will depend on your attitude and level of cooperation.
            But, if you do open carry and you think the LVMPD has mistreated you. Then, the ACLU of NV may want to talk to you.
            If you have been stopped by the LVMPD solely because you were open carrying, the ACLU has agreed to do a very preliminary investigation. They are looking for people who were doing nothing but carrying a sidearm and there was no additional reason for them to be stopped (ie, holding up a bank!)

              Quiet,

              Can you link the original reference on this? I know some of my other forums would find it useful.

                I found it on opencarry.org (looks like original post edited out the message)
                The opencarry.org forum memeber "Pace" is the person in contact with ACLU of NV.

                  I'm a native and local yokel, so I've been detained by the cops once or twice for exercising my Constitutional rights, back when I was a young citizen.

                  Best way to carry in Vegas, IMHO, is to hit a uniform supply shop and buy a black polo shirt that says 'SECURITY' on it in huge letters. Then, just carry right out in the open. Anytime I've had a wild hair up my ass to open carry, that's what I've done. No one has ever given me shit or called Metro on me.

                  But, anytime I've open carried while dressed as a private citizen, I've had the cops called on me. Seems the other folks don't care how you act, they're scared of the gun. Whereas, anytime I've seen someone open carry, all I care about is that they're orderly. Then, they're a force for dispelling evil. 'nuff moralizing.
