Nevada prohibits any individual from carrying or possessing a pneumatic gun while on the property of the Nevada System of Higher Education, a private or public school or child care facility, or while in a vehicle of a private or public school or child care facility.1 Nevada defines a “pneumatic gun” as “any implement designed as a gun that may expel a ball bearing or a pellet by action of pneumatic pressure. The term includes, without limitation, a paintball gun that expels plastic balls filled with paint for the purpose of marking the point of impact.”2

Nevada has no other laws regulating non-powder guns.
