Concealed Weapon Detection System

    In Las Vegas, Nevada, it is perfectly legal to carry your concealed firearm into a casino. If they find out and ask you to leave, however, you’ll need to oblige or face trespassing charges. If you’ve carried inside a casino before undetected, that’s about to change.

    Patriot One Technologies, Inc. is about to kick off an experiment of it’s new detection system. They’ve partnered with Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino to implement the system in public for the first time. But what does it do?

    The system integrates with current security systems to alert the property of any visitors who are carrying a concealed weapon. In short, the system uses “Cognitive Microwave Radar” to detect any unwanted items, and “related hardware can be installed in hallways and doorways to covertly identify weapons and to alert security of an active threat entering the premises.”

    If this test proves to be successful in their eyes, it could open the flood gates for companies looking to use this technology in their own locations.

    I envision a lot of law-abiding citizens being approached by security and then being asked to leave the property, simply for concealing their legal firearm. Alternatively, they could be asked to leave their firearm in their car, opening it up to theft. Or, as many casinos have, they will let visitors store their firearm in a safe deposit box on property. Lots of good it’ll do, though, if you need it.

    Let’s make this easy:
    A bad guy walks into a casino with a gun. By the time security sees that he’s carrying a firearm and gets to him, he’s already shot 6 people.

    A good guy walks into a casino with a gun. By the time security sees that he’s carrying a firearm and gets to him, he’s already sitting down at a table and minding his own business.

    Not to mention if the system doesn’t detect the firearm at all, in which case the only issue is still the bad guy with the gun.

    To any businesses who implement this new technology, I can assure you that I won’t be a visitor to any of your properties. I feel that I’m not alone.

    Furthermore, I feel it’s only fair that a participating business be required to post a sign that alerts visitors of the invasive technology.

    It seems like a warrant-less search and the NRA will sic their lawyers on these guys.
    If there was a microwave detection system for weed the ACLU would be all over it.

    Also for every measure there is a countermeasure.
    They are trying to criminalize law abiding citizens.

    If used in public I would imagine it could be considered a warrantless search. But the argument will be that resorts, hotels and casinos are private property, and that private property rights come into play.

    At my place of employment there is a sticker on the window at the entrances of an image of handgun with a red circle and slash through it. It's private property and the management have the right to regulate who comes in there and with what.

    According to state law, I don't believe they have the right to tell you that you can't have a firearm in your car. They still try, and it's written in the employee handbook. Only the unenlightened comply.

    When I worked there 25 years ago, a number of people brought firearms, without issues. And for awhile there was even a guy with an FFL who showed at the warehouse every Friday morning to take your order. He would deliver your firearm the following Friday.

    Amazing how far this country has slid into the regulatory sewer in just a quarter century.

    Only time I go into a casino is when I need a cheap clean room for the night and a deal on the prime rib dinner;)
    IF this system works I would expect to see it deployed in every business that could afford it in this current political environment . I could see insurance companies offering discounts to businesses that install it.
    Like Yard said, I will not/do not knowingly do business with 2nd amendment haters period.

    Ok, it uses RF Radiation, so that means it will be required to be FCC Type Accepted, and depending on the specs, may even need to be Licensed... If someone encounters such a device, let the Property Owner know, that you intend to file an Official Complaint with the local FCC Office, to make sure the device is legal, and Licensed, if nessesary... If it turns out that it wa

    I usually rip the anti gun sign off the door and stuff it in the nearest trash can.
    To this day no one has ever stopped me, said anything or replaced the signs.

    Depending on the frequencies any business using this type of equipment may be required to post microwave warning signs in areas where it is used due to negative issues with pacemakers or other health related devise... so there should be some form of notice to the carrying public that the system is active... and all of the older gamblers will probably find somewhere else to gamble....

    They are likely already recording emails and at the very least who calls who, if not the entire conversation.

    What about people with implanted cardiac devices? Here in town we had a man collapse and wind up lying on the floor after he and his ICD got caught between a local bank's automatically closing bulletproof doors — Doors that were triggered when the bank's hidden metal detector correctly identified a legal sidearm the fellow was carrying underneath his jacket! This is the kind of 'great security idea' that, sooner or later, WILL end up costing someone his life!
