Where am I not allowed to concealed carry?
Sep. 11th, 2014
You’re a new Concealed Carry Permit holder and you’re eager to go out on your daily routines with your new pistol! Do you remember where you’re not allowed to be?
Let Firearms For Life remind you and save you an annoying trip with the black and white.
If you can remember these places, you’ll be in good legal citizen shape;
• Airports (You can drop off a passenger though, and drive on through)
• Public schools and private schools (without written granted permission)
• Child-care facilities
• Facilities belonging to the University of Nevada, the Community College System, any other vocational/technical school (without written permission), and any other property belonging to the Nevada System of Higher Education
• Law enforcement agency facilities
• All buildings owned or occupied by the federal, state, or local government
• Courthouses and courtrooms (judges and some employees are exempt)
• Prisons, jails and detention facilities, and
• Any buildings with metal detectors or signs prohibiting firearms at each public entrance, or places where carrying concealed firearms is prohibited by federal or state law
Remember that places of business that post a “No Guns Here” sign, does not carry the law with them. For example, a restaraunt. “No Firearm” signs in Nevada have no force of law unless they are posted on property that is specifically mentioned in State Law as being off limits to those with a Permit/License to Carry. If you are in a place not specifically mentioned in the law that is posted and they ask you to leave, you must leave. If you are caught, however, you will be charged with tresspassing and the cops can be called on you. It’s recommended that you do not enter these places.
If you are licensed to carry a concealed firearm but are charged with carrying it on one of these prohibited properties, you face misdemeanor penalties of up to six months in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000. The judge may also order community service.
Remember, when you carry a concealed firearm anywhere, you must have your Driver’s License (I.D.) and CCW permit.
