    Visiting Vegas from Arizona

    I'll be staying on the Strip for a couple of days and nights next month and I was curious if anyone could provide some basic dos and don'ts for me to keep in mind.

    Tribal Land

    While I am aware that tribal lands are considered sovereign nations and as such, many have their own prohibitions concerning the possession of firearms, I am curious as to whether or not those of us who are not tribal members have any sort of "right of passage" while passing through? That is, if...

    Expandable Baton

    In addition to carrying a pistol and folding knife, I have recently started to carry an expandable baton in my pocket on occasion. Does anyone else here do this to supplement their pistol? My logic in doing so is that there may be a situation which requires a little more than I can muster with...

    Sky Harbor Airport: Random Vehicle Searches???

    I had to drop off my wife at Sky Harbor today and while there, I noticed signs stating that random vehicle searches may be conducted. Did I miss something, or is the Fourth Amendment still on the books? Has anyone ever heard of any of these searches actually taking place? If so, details please.

    Businesses Confused with ARS 4-229

    It seems to me that many businesses here in Arizona that wish to refuse service to those of us who lawfully carry are confused concerning ARS 4-229. That is, many who do no sell alcohol post signage referencing the statute even though it has absolutely nothing to do with them since they do not...

    Anti-gun Insurance Co. State Farm

    Noticed this as I entered a State Farm building last Friday here in Arizona. I don't do business with anti-gun companies, but I let it slide this time since it's costing them tens of thousands of dollars due to the fool that they are insuring who cannot drive.

    Murder Rates: United States vs. Europe Argument

    All too often enough, whenever I am "debating" my extremely pro-gun stance with anti's, I get the whole, "Europe has strict gun control and the murder rates over there are really low compared to the US" argument thrown at me. While I do have some normal counterarguments to this, I am wondering...
