Nevada Gun Laws: Can Visitors Carry Their Firearm?

By    |   Friday, 09 Jan 2015 09:11 PM

Nevada’s gun laws are lenient for both locals and visitors to the state.

Residents from outside of Nevada may carry a concealed firearm in in the state if they have a permit issued from any of the following states:
Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho (enhanced permits), Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota (class 1 permits), Ohio, South Carolina, and Tennessee

Gun purchases in the state are much easier than the rest of the country. According to Laws.com, Nevada has more guns sold and registered than any other state in the U.S. Records and sales transactions are not mandated by law. In addition, there is no limit on bulk purchases, amounts of ammunition, or magazine sizes. Moreover, police inspections of Nevada gun shops are not allowed by state law. Out-of-staters can easily purchase a firearm as Nevada gun shops are not regulated and background checks are not performed.

Unique gun laws make it easier for residents outside of Nevada — Californians, in particular — to travel to the state to buy just about any weapon they choose without undergoing background checks, according to McClatchyDC.com.

States that have reciprocity with Nevada are:
Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho (enhanced permits), Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Vermont
