"I am also calling on everyone in Nevada to begin practicing OPEN CARRY! Since the NSCA is so determined to undermine our CCW, prevent reciprocity, keep registering gun owners in Clark County (and expand that registrationn statewide), and prevent us from doing away with the requirement to list each allowed CCW weapon."From all appearances Clark County is rapidly [and unfortunately] becoming the state of Nevada.

I occasionaly pack a pistol in the field in Elko County and have relatives in St. George UT [maybe 30 miles as the crow flies from Clark County NV] so any registration requirements might be of more than academic interest to me. Could you explain what is already in place and what the gun grabbers have in mind? Thanks. GJ

I need to find the exact text of Clark Counties gun registration law.
So far, it only applies to Clark County.
But with the county annexing land for as far as they can see that has become a huge chunk of land!

My understanding has been that anyone spending over 24 hours in the county has to register all hand guns in their posession.
I recently spoke with the NSCA lobbyist about this, he insist the registration law only applies to people who take up residence in the county.
I do intend to get this clarified, perhaps I can remember to simply call and ask the Clark County DA tomorrow!

I do know that the NSCA is irrationally terrified that some state pre-emption law may curtail their registration scheme. In order to prevent that they consistently lobby to expand gun registration statewide.

I have also spoken to SEVERAL people who have related horror stories of L.V. and Clark County L.E. using flimsy pretext to harass them and confiscate their guns, for the "Crime" of open carry, which is a right protected in our state constitution.
We need a LOT more people to practice open carry, it gets harder for L.E. to keep up a campaign of harassment when too many people begin to exercise that right.

L.V. is the liberal armpit of the state!
