Default Wanding in Casino Hotels

I just saw and article that said Wynn's and another hotel were starting to wand all patrons. Is it true, and if so what happens to lawful CCW holders?

There are a lot of lawful CCW holders that visit these hotels and casinos.

Bob.

They have the right as a private business to turn us away. We have the right to spend our money elsewhere and patronize businesses who want us around.

Doz is right. Private property and they can ask you to leave. I have a feeling you are going to see more no firearms signs on some of the casinos/hotels that didnít have them before.

I will be one of the many that will no longer patronize any casino/hotel that wands unless there is an exception for lawful NV CCW holders. Bob.

I haven't seen wands in the Boyd properties I've been to. Lots of extra presence on the floor, but that's good for everyone. ��

Saw a clickbait post about a Steve Wynn interview w Jon Ralston where he supposedly bragged about retired USMC Embassy guards on staff and hidden metal detectors, so I'm not surprised if there's wanding there.

I think the mods should make a sticky down the road of casinos/hotels that wonít be wanding people. It would be nice if we didnít take the time to deal with the traffic on the strip by going to a casino and being turned away.

Just a thought.

On local news I saw them wanding people and searching their bags as they entered the Wynn, just like the airport but with zero privacy regarding what may have been in the bags. Sliding the bags down a standard folding table. No way can they keep that up because people will quickly start heading to other places without the wait.

It's like waiting in line at airport security but they ALSO have to go through the bags that you checked in, not just your carry-on. It's pathetic.

The Mayor was on Fox and said no way in hell did she want one lunatic to force us to change the way we do business in Las Vegas.

Their only hope will be for Wynn and MGM to convince their paid legislators to pass a law forcing every casino on the strip to do the same.

I wonder how this will evolve or devolve and the impact it has with regards to SHOT show...

I wonder how this will effect gun shows at local casinos ?
Orleans, Texas Station, East Side Cannery and Westgate all host gun shows.
Westgate was supposed to be installing super metal detectors before the incident Sunday night.
