I-Team: Nevada Less Restrictive on Gun Control

The Second Amendment gives all Americans the right to keep and bear arms, but how you keep them and where you bear them can differ dramatically depending on where you live.

Nevada is widely considered one of the least restrictive states when it comes to gun laws. For example, Nevada has no state gun registry. Only Clark County requires gun registration and only for handguns. Nevada also has no restrictions on the types of guns a person can own and few rules about where someone can carry them. Some say it's a reflection of the state's Wild West roots.

The gun fight at the O.K. Corral, which has been dramatized in several movies, began as an effort to enforce Tombstone, Arizona's local gun laws, according to some historians.

"Why did they fight the gunfight at the O.K. Corral? The Clanton's wouldn't give up their guns," said historian Dr. Michael Green, College of Southern Nevada.

He explains, like Arizona, Nevada's history includes varying degrees of gun control. In some cases, it was more restrictive than what is on the books today.

"I open carry all the time," said Cindy Mayhew, an open carry enthusiast.

In Nevada, anyone who can legally own a firearm may carry it openly. On a Friday night on Fremont Street, Mayhew joins a group of gun enthusiasts actively exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Nevada, just 20 miles across the border from me. Looking better every day.

The photos on your profile page are beautiful. The first one at the top, above the Virginia City picture, was that taken in the Carson Valley between Minden-Gardnerville and Carson City?

The 2nd Amendment doesn’t give me a damned thing.

I can see Nevada from my Kitchen window, still more restrictive than here in AZ, but not bad.

Yes, that’s a stretch of ranch land going down into Gardnerville Ranchos... Probably another 50 mins past that and we’d be at your place.
