Hey guys, I'm going to Vegas this weekend and was wondering if I could walk the strip and gamble in the Casinos with my mace handy on my hip( legally of course). I'm a paranoid guy after I got beat up really bad by these two big guys for no reason at all.

I don't know Vegas/Clark County or NV law (they could be separate & different), but there _is_ a difference between "Mace" and "pepper spray" (O.C.).

Many people (incorrectly) call the commonly-available pepper spray "mace" when it is not.

So before someone can properly answer your question, which kind of spray are you referring to??

(IIRC, true "mace" requires a permit in CA. Pepper spray does not.)

Also, what the casino does or does not allow may be separate from the law. If pepper spray is legal, you just might want it concealed.

Vegas casino floors seem, overall, pretty safe to me. If you're having a problem in a casino, try a new one with a better clientele.

+1 about the distinction between mace and pepperspray (OC spray). To further complicate things, one of the big sellers of pepperspray is a company marketed under the label "Mace" so it is Mace brand pepperspray and it says mace (in smaller letters) on the item itself.

Why would anyone carry Mace -CN? Pepper spray is FAR more effective, and in California no permit is required.

On another thread I asked this, but no reply yet. What are the laws in Cali regarding Pepper Spray? If I google about it I am not getting anything really official. Someone said that 2oz was only allowed and it was a felony just to posess more than that. That doesn't sound right to me.

Lazyman, why not just go ahead and get a Nevada non-resident CCW? That's what I did and now every time I go to Vegas (which is quite often for work) I am packin'. The only thing that sucks about it is crossing back behind the iron curtain (coming home to the PRK) and having to disarm.
