Donald Trump talks a good game on gun rights – now. But naysayers have pointed out that some of The Donald’s properties are gun free zones. As the Trump Tower is a five-minute walk from the SHOT Show in Las Vegas, I grabbed my camera and headed over to see if I could find any “NO GUN” signs . . .
As the picture above, illustrates the buffed and polished entrance to the Trump Tower in Las Vegas is not marred with “NO GUN” signs.
Inside the lobby, I interviewed several people attending SHOT. Former Marine Jeff Kyle, Chris’ Kyle’s brother, said he’d not been asked about any guns, nor had he seen any signs to indicate that the hotel was hostile to gun owners.
Matt Reed, account manager for NightForce, agreed. He’d not been asked about guns, no one’s luggage had been searched, and there were no signs to indicate an anti-Second Amendment policy. Loyd Hill of SD Tactical Arms of Menominee, Wisconsin, (below) affirmed what other Trump guests told me: Trump Tower Los Vegas is not a “gun free” zone.
Trump Tower Security told me that management discouraged guests from “touching firearms” in the common areas, presumably referring to open carry and handing guns in their luggage. But guests could keep and bear arms as they pleased in their rooms. We’ve heard of restrictions on carrying firearms on other Trump properties, but Trump Tower Los Vegas is not a “gun-free” zone.
