Is it actually illegal, or against hotel/motel rules, to be armed in the hotels/motels?
“Is it actually illegal, or against hotel/motel rules, to be armed in the hotels/motels?”
I hope not.
A Freeper from Clark county could help answer this. Nevada is an open carry state, but I think Clark County/Las Vegas is more discreet. I think that there is nothing illegal about having guns in your room if you are staying at the hotel (Nevada doesn't call it Castle Law, but their law reads similar to other states Castle Doctrines). To be armed and walking around the lobby or casino is a different matter and, again, someone local to Clark County could probably clarify what the laws are.
When training at ranges near Vegas, I have stayed at Vegas hotels and carried my cased guns to the room, usually trying to be as discrete about it as I can. If they make it where the hotels don't allow that, then I wont be patronizing those hotels anymore.
This not like a NY or NJ airport where you would most likely get arrested if your tried to check your firearm through on a layover. The law would have to be substantially changed in Nevada.
The Hotels won't be able to sustain this and any searches are just knee jerk security theater. They will revert back after the economic impact takes hold.
