I love you for this. Thank you for these clear, comprehensive rundowns on the state of gun law. For some new gun owners like me, this is a true aid to understanding our rights and responsibilities. Please keep it up!Your sincerely,Desert Lady
The salesman at big 5 was confused about this. I thought he was wrong but did not argue with him.
Costco will bar you entry if you are "carrying openly" in NV. They have an unlawful sign at the entrance to their Carson City store. They told me "it's PRIVATE PROPERTY". So I put the Sig in the car. The female checking cards at the entrance also told me If they see someone carrying concealed they would ask them to leave also, even if they had the required permit!
I am staying at The Suites on Nellis Blvd. and Boulder Hwy.. Obviously not a nice neighborhood. I have a question. I open carry. There is an overzealous security guard who keeps telling me I can't carry my firearm? Now, there rules on paper say no firearms on property. However, they rented me a room while I was wearing a firearm. The staff all know me and have no issues with me when I come and check on my mail, etc. I have lived there since Dec. of 2015. I was leaving my apartment and going to my car when he said, "You can't carry a firearm on the property." I responded that yes I can. I continued to my car and went to work. Now, I was locking my front door when he said that. It wasn't like I was wandering the complex. Today, I was getting ready to leave the complex to go do my laundry elsewhere. I stopped at the front office to check yesterday's mail. He was there and once again told me no firearms. Said I might alarm the office staff carrying. I told him they know me and know I am responsible. I also told him that I have no plans of getting shot and killed like the guy did, 2 weeks ago, 50 yards from my apartment. He said I can carry to and from my apartment and car. I said fine, so what's his reasoning the other day? He had no answer. My question is, can he prevent me from say, walking from my apartment, armed, to say, Walgreens, then back. Where does his rule/power over me, of carrying on property, stop and end? The guy is irritating me.
You should speak with corporate management. He may be enforcing what he feels is right instead of corporate policy. The best success our community has had was with polite conversations correctly educating businesses on what's legal and how open carry is nothing to be afraid off.Private property owners can choose to ban guns, but as a resident, you have an equal right to carry from your car or off-property to your residence. It's a gray area under Nevada law, but you certainly aren't trespassing.

Thank you for the fast response. Yes, I will try to get the Corporate office number. As I mentioned, I told the security officer that I have no plans of ending up shot by a methhead like the victim 2 weeks ago. It was right on the walkway that we use to leave the premises to the parking lot to get to Walgreens. A 4 minute walk from my apartment to the Walgreens. Unfortunately, lots of undesirables between us. I also suffered a severe back injury (spinal fusion and 4 screws, wedge) and I am in no position anymore to fight off an attacker without risking severe injury to myself. Therefore, I open carry almost everywhere that is practical. I have been law abiding. I have pulled my weapon twice, both times to protect a female. The first time was to keep a woman's boyfriend from further beating her as she was 8 months pregnant and as he had already beaten her half to death. I ended up subpoenaed to court on that one to testify against him and I had saved her life in the process. The 2nd time was when a man began charging a woman from across the street. She ran towards me, screaming for help, as I was closest to her. I was just opening my car door after buying chips and dip at the AM/PM. Now he was charging both of us from the other side of my car as she was holding onto me from behind, for cover. Lovely, eh? I pulled my weapon, pointing it at him from over the roof of my car, as he had just crossed the street. I yelled for him to stop. He didn't. He began running around the back side of my car towards us, when I clicked my hammer back and told him he needs to stop or he will get shot. He saw the gun, ran a 10 foot path around us and back across the street. I already had 911 on my phone. He was talking with another man across the street and incredulously, began running at us again. He got half way across the street when Metro surrounded him. (Fremont, Charleston and Eastern). I told one of the police officers what happened. They spoke with the man, saw he was obviously loony tunes, and the officer looked over to me, chuckled and said, "You can go home, sir. Have a good night." That was the end of that. The point is, this is not a safe city. If it wasn't for my weapon, things could have ended very badly for me and the women, as I am not physically able to fight because of my recent back injury. Two surgeries since Nov. 2014. This security guard doesn't seem to acknowledge the dangers we live in? Until I get my workman's comp settlement, my living arrangement/location, is rather limited. My back injury hit me finantially and i was forced to move from my house. My gun is my means of self defense. I am logical, polite and tolerable of different types of people/attitudes, but I am not going to let a security guard put me in harms way by harassing me about carrying my holstered weapon, from my apartment to my car, as he did. Or, if I am walking from my apartment to go off the property. He seems to be clearly overstepping his bounds? Again, thank you for your quick response and attention.
