No..pre-empted by state law. There are however some rules about carrying in cars and stuff without a CCW.

Nevada State law does not say anything about firearms in vehicles, thus there are no restrictions to having a gun in your car.

Got news for ya hoss, you cannot carry a gun in any Las Vegas hotels, for obvious reasons. In Vegas you can carry your gun in your glove with the mag. In N. Las Vegas, the mag has to be separated from the gun and the gun must be in the glove, eg. the gun can be in the glove and the mag's in the trunk. I am not sure about Henderson; I don't spend much time there. I have only worked with LVMPD and NLVPD. As far as your CCW goes, you need to check if it current in our state, this changes constantly so anytime you travel I would look it up.

sorry Stewie. People regularly and repeatedly conceal carry in strip casinos and hotels.

Only way to ban CCW is to have it posted and a metal detector.

Public buildings can ban by posting a sign.

You may only carry five guns at a time. Two on your hip, one strapped to your leg under your trousers, a rifle or shotgun in your arms, and a drop gun hidden wherever you feel it won't be detected. No autos or grenade launchers. Hey, it's the West, not Iraq.

How about a 50 caliber mounted to the back of my truck, with bullet proof glass, land mines and TNT. For self-defense only of course.

You may be able to get the Utah permit in your home state. Most ranges in my area have a special class (about $150 plus Utah's fee) to acquire the permit. They cover the shooting test and have all the paperwork on hand. Just take the test, fill out the paperwork, and wait.

Default Gun laws when traveling

So does any one know what the law is when transporting an unloaded lawfully owned hand gun in your lawfully owned vehicle while traveling through New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado.
