Attention Nevadans and NV Visitors

SB 137
Nevadans Chime in Here
Contact Your Reps

Fiore and company have introduced a bill to change CCW in Nevada to constitutional carry(it also appears to remove the restriction on CCW in public buildings putting CC on equal footing with OC), along with striking the grandfathered Clark County handgun registration.

On a side note, I forgot how silly some of the provisions of weapons law can be...

There was a rash of nunchaku attacks in the early 1970s as a result of young (and stupid) hoodlums emulating then-popular Hong Kong chop-socky kung fu exploitation movies.

"Sooo! You think you can match my nunchuck skills with your southern dragon fist!"

swish swish swish WHACK!

<change to normal voice>

"Oh, dude, I'm sorry! Is your nose OK?"

Anti-crime right-wing control freaks in various state legislatures responded to this "scourge" by outlawing nunchucks.

Those must have been Assault Nunchakus. Institute an ANB!

One of the sister cases to McDonald (Maloney v. Cuomo) was a case involving 2A protection for nunchaku.

You can't be serious....

Shades of a nanny state indeed.

IIRC some of the folks in the 2A community were relieved when the SCOTUS declined to review Maloney v. Cuomo. It was a weak case because (a) the Court could issue a narrow ruling that nunchaku weren't protected because they fail the "common use" test from Miller, or (b) the Court could rule that nunchaku were unprotected sporting goods rather than protected arms, essentially throwing out the case, and the pro-2A side would get nothing.

Florida residents...

To my limited knowledge, NV no longer allows the Florida W(concealed carry) license for reciprocal carry.
I'd need to check www.gunlawguide.com or www.handgunlaw.us but I heard the Nevada AGs office didn't think Florida's Div of Licensing training standards were high enough.

It wasn't in jest. It was actually a very good case, and well worth reading. "Arms" aren't just guns.

Body armor too?...

I've also heard of & read media articles where elected officials considered body armor & garments that repel firearm rounds as "weapons".

My city/local/state laws & ordinances are a bit murky about body armor & vests.

But if Casey Anthony(a convicted felon/check fraud) can wear concealable body armor in public then I guess other license holders & armed citizens can too!
