    I heard it's not unusual for people to bring large numbers of guns into a hotel, since in this case there's an upcoming gun show scheduled there 3 or 4 days from now. Seems like a safety issue, but I would imagine if you wandered in with an open container of whiskey they'd ask you to take it outside though.

    And I don't know the laws in Nevada, but most places don't allow smoking in public areas as we all know the dangers of second-hand smoke.
    Thanks from Madeline

    It's very lax at resorts/casinos. Due to tourism and the possibilities for just about anyone to hit big, coupled with all of the money floating around there already.. what people bring in is usually not an issue. Lots of stuff get sneaked in, and the staff usually doesn't keep up with those types of details. Hotels that size aren't as personable as a smaller establishment. Vegas is an entirely different world... also gun shows are really big there- everything is really- lots of conventions, you name it.

    Just Google 'gun shows in Vegas' and check out all of them. World?s largest gun show will go on as planned in Las Vegas | New York Post

    I suppose guns in cases wouldn't raise any eyebrows.

    If I remember correctly you can walk around with open liquor in Nevada.

    At least we could in Reno when I lived there.

    He didn't even need gun cases as Vegas is a mecca for musicians arriving with equipment for shows so it would not be rare for a check-in to have a lot of bulky luggage. But you are right there are so many gun shows that it is probably the norm to bring a lot of weapons into a room openly. That part will be interesting to know. Plus he had 3 days to bring everything in if he didn't do it all at once. His rooms were certainly large enough so that what seems like a lot would be easily stored neatly in all the bedrooms.
    Thanks from Madeline

    What are they going to say, if it is legal for him to have them? Therein lies a part of the problem.

    People say criminals will still get guns and people will still convert weapons to fully auto.....The thing is, if it legal to convert and legal to have older machine guns or military style rifles, then no one could stop a shooter, if he walked in with 50 guns slung over his shoulder.......

    No one is going to stop this stuff 100%, but there are ways to reduce it, a great deal.....

    The other thing is, most black market firearms get there via straw purchases.....If firearms were tracked....and buyers had to provide some proof they still owned the firearm they purchased when called at random, to come in, with the weapon, to verify they still owned it (and didn't just pass it on or sell it to those who put up the money for the purchase....if they no longer own the gun, what's wrong with stating who it was given to or bought it, when and checking out some verification of whose hands that weapon is now in the hands of. Stolen weapons purchased legally, also feeds the black market. More weapons out there, more to steal and more to feed the black market..... Why is it we feed the very things we dislike or hate....or the things that work to kill us?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Nevada


    For all the talk of how armed citizens will stop shooters......with all the "freedom" people have to carry firearms in Nevada.....there was no "good guy with a gun" that stopped the bad guy with many guns....

    Because of few restrictions, open carry, legal bump stock kits, silencers and flash suppressors......who is given the advantage, but those who want to use their firearms in this manner?

    I would say buy a bullet proof vest, it might give you a fighting chance, but because people are forever finding deadlier ways of killing.....armor piercing bullets might render that vest useless.....

    Here's to "rights".....any "rights", BUT human or humane.....(so say the "patriots")

    LOL - that bumper sticker "If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have them".

    I'm starting to fear law abiding citizens with guns more than criminals with guns.
