At first I couldn’t get anyone at the Trump Hotel in Las Vegas to answer my questions. Their PR people ignored any attempt to find out if the Trump Hotel bans firearms, and when I called each time, they refused to talk to the press about the subject.
So, I decided to call as a guest after booking a room under a pseudonym that I sometimes use, and proceeding to call and ask questions to get a straight answer.
After security asked if I was a guest, I assume they looked up some sort of reservation system, to make sure I was telling the truth, and they told me the rules and regulations.
Simply put, guests are not allowed to bring firearms on the premise. They are BANNED. They are required to check them in with security, and can get it after they leave the hotel. They have the “right to enforce this” regardless of the Second Amendment, and the wishes of their guests.
This isn’t just in Vegas, but all of Trump Hotels and Buildings.
“No, we don’t allow any firearms in the hotel,” a manager at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago told one reporter from ThinkProgress over the phone. “Guns are also banned at Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles. An employee at the course told ThinkProgress that “we don’t allow firearms on the property.” Asked whether that ban applies even to those with a concealed-carry permit, he said that “with a permit we still don’t allow firearms.”
“Nor are weapons, even for those with a concealed carry license, permitted at theTrump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk in Honolulu. “It’s a gun-free zone, even for people with a permit,” a customer service agent informed the same reporter.
Should a Hotel that doesn’t allow people to bring their legal firearms in be boycotted? What do you think about a hotel owned by a Presidential Candidate who claims to be pro-gun rights, not allowing guns in his buildings?
