Conceal Carry on an Indian Casino

I had a thread about firearms in Jessie Honeyman State Park but now I have a new question.

I have a non-resident Oregon CHP (I'm a California resident) and I will be visiting the Three Rivers Indian Casino in Florence. Are there any restrictions/limitations regarding concealed carry on an Indian Casino? Is this considered the same as an Indian Reservation? Should I just leave my handgun locked in the car before entering?

Thanks for any input.
Not sure about that particular casino, you should call the tribal police for that res and ask them. I called the suquamish tribe about carrying on their reservation and was told that it was ok except for the tribal center and the casino. You could also call the casino. Anything else you hear might just be speculation. Good luck.
I would assume the Siuslaw tribe follows similar rules to the other tribes in Oregon. NO FIREARMS may be brought onto their "sovereign nation". Pretty sure you be taken to "tribal court" and lose your firearm. It would be just like going to Mexico, only cleaner.
From the Washington County Sheriff's Office (Oregon):

Q. Even with a concealed handgun license, where can I not carry a firearm?

A. Oregon law provides very few limits on where a person with a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) can carry a firearm, and federal laws contain a few more prohibitions. Even if you have a Concealed Handgun License, you cannot carry a firearm on any of the following properties:

Federal facilities - federal courthouses, social security offices, in secured areas of airports, and on airplanes
National forests marked or posted by signs prohibiting all firearms
Indian reservations or Indian property - you may not carry a firearm concealed without the written permission of the tribal judge; this may also apply to certain casinos on Indian lands
Courts - in a courtroom, jury room, judge's chambers or adjacent areas that the presiding judge determines should be free of firearms to ensure the safety of the litigants, court personnel, witnesses and others
Private property where the owner prohibits firearms possession
If you violate these conditions you could, under certain circumstances, be subject to arrest under Oregon trespass laws, in which case your concealed handgun license would be seized and/or revoked. Learn more, read ORS 166.370.

No person may bring a firearm or weapon into that portion of this building occupied by the Washington County Circuit Court, except for a peace officer or federal officer on official duty. Violating these provisions may result in your arrest for a Class C felony, and could also result in your being found in contempt of court. ORS 166.370 and Uniform Trial Court Rule 6.180.

No person may bring a firearm, weapon or other contraband into the secured perimeter of the Washington County Jail, and all visitors to the jail must go through a security screening and metal detector. Knowingly introducing contraband into a correctional facility is a Class C felony. ORS 162.185.

All persons entering these premises may be subject to audio or visual surveillance.
I am a Florence resident and have been to three rivers many times. There are signs posted at all of the doorways forbidding weapons carry. The parking lot is littered with cameras as well so its probably best to stuff it in the glove box before you actually get there.

Is there a state law that allows tribal court prosecution of a non-tribal member? If not then the tribal court has no authority as the "laws" they enforce are actually tribal rules which have no application towards a non-tribal member except to the extent that they can trespass you from the tribal land.
