Indeed. I stayed at the Mandalay Bay the year before last when I was taking my Clark County CCW training. Had my Henry with me and wanted to take it to my room so that I could clean it. Being a 'good boy' and not wanting to run afoul of the law, I asked if it was allowable. Was passed from one person to another until I was finally sent to the Head of Security. "Nobody" had a clue.

No, it was not allowed. Because of the danger of theft if keeping it in the car, they do have a safe in their little security break room where you can have it locked up while you are in residence. I was very self-conscious carrying an obvious rifle case through the casino to the main security desk so it could be safely secured. I needn't have worried. Not a single person paid attention to me.

But you're right. There was nobody concerned about what anyone takes to their rooms. That's going to change now!

Hotel policies seem to vary a lot. Many people attend multi-day rifle classes at Front Sight, stay in Las Vegas, and keep their rifles in their rooms. Earlier this year my cousin and his BIL attended a four-day practical rifle course at Front Sight and every morning carried their cased rifles in and out of their hotel between the valet and the hotel elevators.

I suspect this may change, but if you separate the upper and lower receiver on an AR platform rifle (pull two pins, takes ten seconds), you've got pieces that will fit in a standard rollerbag. In other countries I've had my luggage, and even my laptop backpack taken from me and scanned every time I entered a hotel.

Pretty safe. Sisolak is Chairman of the County Commission and rich. He also appears to be reasonable bright. Contributions passed $600,000 a half hour ago.

Default Vegas Economy Hit After Mass Shooting?

I woke up this morning having relatives calling to see if we are ok. It is terrible news of a crazy mental evil person. However, what does this mean to the future of Vegas? Will people be afraid coming, which will lead to a hit to the town economy combined with reduced property prices? What is your opinion?

Contrary to popular belief concealed carry is allowed virtually anywhere on the strip so the discussion of in room possession is not realistic. The hotels can ban weapons at an event but they then have to provide screening and a check facility.

Yup. I was on Trop by the MGM when it was happening. At one point he could have shot me if he wanted. But obviously shooting at the crowd was more pressing to him than some cars.

Additionally, I feel sorry for people of Mesquite.
A quiet retirement town, it will forever be known as the place where the crazy mental evil person lived.

"No Firearms Allowed" signs on private property do not carry the force of law. They can ask you to leave if you choose not to disarm though, and if you don't you're trespassing, and can be arrested for that. If you're properly carrying concealed, no one is going to know you're armed.
