Nevada allows residents to carry concealed firearms if they have the proper permit, commonly called a CCW (Carrying Concealed Weapon Permit). But ex-felons, fugitives from justice, illegal drug users, mentally ill persons, and illegal immigrants are not allowed to own or possess firearms at all. Ex-felons are often arrested for carrying weapons that they did not know they were forbidden from carrying, including mace and stun guns. And certain weapons cannot be carried at all (include belt buckle knives, switchblade knives, backjacks, billy clubs, slungshots, and brass knuckles). A competent criminal defense attorney will know which weapons you are allowed to possess and what an appropriate resolution will be.
- Prohibited Person in Possession of Firearm
