that is what i've been told anythig 3" or under is ok accept automatic knives

as far as i know there is no length law...however, i think you are supposed to keep the CLIP of the knife showing while in pocket.

Over 3 inches may be considered a weapon, and over three inches in pocket may be considered a concealed weapon.

Anything over three inches is illegal to carry concealed, and Clark County will use State Statute to prosecute as a category C felony.

Exerpts from NRS 202.350: Paragraph 1. subparagraph (3) i.e Pistol, revolver or other firearm, or other dangerous or deadly weapon;

2. Except as otherwise provided in NRS 202.275 and 212.185, a person who violates any of the provisions of:
(b) Paragraph (b) or subparagraph (1) or (3) of paragraph (d) of subsection 1 is guilty of a category C felony and shall be punished as provided in NRS 193.130.

NRS 202.350

Hope this helps..

Be Safe.

Pit bull stabbed to death after attacking man's dog in park

By BRIAN HAYNES
REVIEW-JOURNAL

A man watching his dog being attacked by a pit bull at a park Monday took matters into his own hands and stabbed the dog to death, police said.

Dillon Smith had gone to the dog run at Sunset Park that day with his pet, a pit bull mix, Clark County Park Police Chief Rick Bishop said.

Trouble began when Smith's dog tried to mount a larger pit bull, he said.

The larger dog wasn't into the mood, and it turned and attacked the other dog, biting its legs before latching onto the dog's face, Bishop said.

The dog owners punched and kicked the pit bull, hoping it would release its bite. But the dog held on, Bishop said.

Eventually, Smith pulled out a folding pocket knife and stabbed the pit bull until it released his dog, he said.

The pit bull died from the stab wounds, and Smith's dog was taken to a veterinarian to get treatment for bite wounds, he said.

Park police responded to the scene and cited Smith with carrying a concealed weapon. Police said his knife was about 4 inches long. County code prohibits knives longer than 3 inches.


Park police forwarded the case to Animal Control for further investigation.

What we need to do is get out permits changed from Concealed Firearms Permit, to Concealed Weapons Permit.

That's what I miss about the Arizona CWP--anything goes from Bowies, to Winchester Defenders, to Class III.

But then, I didn't particularly care for the bit of AZ CWP law about you're not supposed to carry into a Dennys Restaraunt because they serve beer.

Can't carry in nuclear power plants in AZ either, but I wasn't aware that AZ even had one, nor did I ever have any intention of visiting one, so that was something of a moot point.

I think what the problem is Clark County has too much influence in State Gun Laws. I leave in Las Vegas and admit there is too many Liberals down here. We need to get rid of them and send them back to California.

Nah, they can still procreate and move back to NV. Best bet would be application of the three S'es.


Edit to add lest those of you that don't know me some take me just a bit too literally.
