Nevada residents are particularly staunch when it comes to the right to own firearms. It’s a proud tradition, but it’s still important to follow state law. For example, NRS 202.350 says that a weapon cannot be readily observable in order to be considered concealed. Failure to adequately conceal a firearm may result in criminal charges.

The first step toward being able to legally carry a concealed firearm is to obtain a permit. Each county has its own permitting process, and residents must apply in the county where they live. In Clark County this means obtaining an application packet from a station of the LVMPD or from their website. Applicants must complete a firearms qualification course. The instructor of the course signs documentation in the application packet to certify acceptable completion. The applicant then goes to an office of the LVMPD with the packet, identification and means to pay the required fee.

It’s essential to fill out all portions of the application packet accurately and completely. Failure to do so may mean the rejection of your application. Keep in mind that it is not legal to carry a concealed firearm until you receive your permit. You must have your permit and identification with you whenever you’re carrying a firearm.

If you have violated any of Nevada’s concealed carry laws, then you need aggressive, experienced legal representation. Contact the practitioners at the Potter Law Offices. They go the extra mile to understand your situation and while fighting for your rights in court.
