When Carrying a Gun is Illegal
Concealing a firearm on your person or even on your property requires you
to obtain a special permit. Oftentimes, you will need to prove that you
are of sound mind and have a clean criminal record. There are certain
situations where it is outright illegal to carry a firearm, whether you
have a concealed weapons permit or not.
In Nevada, you may not possess a firearm:
- On school property
- In most government facilities
- In an airport
- While intoxicated
Weapons Considered Unlawful
You should also be aware of certain
weapons that are considered strictly illegal to possess, concealed or not. Although,
the firearms and firearm accessories on the following list may be used
in certain circumstances – such as on a dedicated firing range –
and with the right permits. If you possess or wish to possess one of these
items, you should check with your criminal attorney first to ensure you
are within the limits of the law.
Weapons usually considered illegal in all scenarios include:
- Machine guns
- Silencer (suppressor) attachments
- Brass (metal) knuckles
- Hidden blades (switchblades)
- Blackjacks and other clubs
