Yesterday I stopped over to a local gun shop to browse and shoot the breeze with Frank, The gun counter guy. Two guys came in dressed is suits without the jackets and had them Indian ID cards hanging on a cord around their necks.One of the guys was putting a rifle uo for sale there on consignment. I asked them if they worked at the casino, They worked at the Tribal Court House, so I asked them about the "No Guns Allowed" signs on every door at every Casino in the State. I asked if there was a Federal, State or Tribal Law against carrying a concealed handgun in the Casinos. He said that the signs hold as much merit as the same signs at KMart or any other place of business. If they catch you most likely they'll ask you to leave and secure it in your car. He said they never had a weapons charge come through the court they work at. One of the guys said he carries concealed every where it's legal to, Sign or No Sign so you take it from there. I asked if he carried in the Casinos when there on his own time, He said again, I carry EVERY WHERE, Sign or No Sign.
But this in in Washington State, Might be a different ball game there in New Yorkistan. I alway carried in the Casinos before and often thought what would happen if I got spotted. Now I know, It's a small relief off of my mind.

Could be sticky. Best find out for sure. Indian lands are like their own country. Federal lands for sure.

Best to find out, as you would not wanna land in federal court on a gun charge.

Keep us posted. I am curious now.

After talking with these two gentlmen I'm comfortable wilth carrying at the local Casinos, Concealed is concealed.When carrying there I carry my S&W 642 in my front pocket, very unconspicuous. I wouldn't carry anything large enough to print. Chances are if you need it you will be out by your car when you leave, That's where most of the robberies take place. A couple of years ago a woman ih a jackpot. A guy followed her out of the Casino and followed her out of the pparking lot. On the way home the guy tapped the back of her car with his, she pulled over and the guy killed her and robbed her.
You never know. The best I ever did there was a hit for $10'936.00, the second best was $1'800.00.Enought to draw attention from some of these second class citizens. People get mugged for $50, when their urge comes on for their next fix of Herion or Meth they do not think rational, You have to protect yourself at the time. Calling 911 is only to report the fact that you just became a victim.

I ALWAYS carry at the casino! I take a smaller pistol that fits in my pocket! Out of sight, out of mind! Would I rather carry my 1911, absolutely, but I would rather have a pistol in my pocket... than no gun at all!! REMEMBER, situational awareness is your Friend, as well as the element of surprise that no one know you have it!!
Keep your eyes open at all times, best advise!!

Years ago I was told that the NY permit is no good on the reservation in western NY. Not by anyone in law enforcement, and not by a member of the Seneca Nation... therefore not sure if it's true or not.

Even if that's true..then there probably wouldn't even be any laws about carrying on their reservation..woo hoo cowboys and ***** days!!

All federal law applies in Indian Reservations. To see if the reservation is bound by state law, you must consult Public Law 280.

Last Saturday the County sheriff was at the gun show that I went to, I asked him about carrying at the Casinos here in Washington State. His answer was it's the same as carrying at any establishment with a "No Firearms" sign hanging on their door or window.

The first time they wll ask you to leave, the second time the catch you they can have you arrested for Trespass, No gun charge. Back there you might be in the hot seat being most of your Judges are anti-gun with a Democrap Agenda on their shoulders.
