    Danny Tarkanian, the anti-establishment conservative challenging anti-Trump establishment Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) in Nevada’s primary, has solidified his lead over Heller in a new poll from JMC Analytics released on Friday morning.
  • Nevada AG: Bloomberg-Backed Background Checks Would Not Have Prevented Las Vegas Attack

    Because Nevada is one of the states in which Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety campaigned relentlessly for universal background checks in 2016, it is important to note that such checks would have done absolutely nothing to prevent the October 1 Las Vegas attack. This is because Vegas attacker Stephen Paddock passed background checks for his guns. Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt (R) made this very point in the Las Vegas Review-Journal on October 21 when he wrote: Many, including U.S. Sen.Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., have said, no law could have stopped the attacker. It should be crystal clear to anybody...
  • Nevada suit seeks to enforce expanded gun background checks

    A group behind a ballot initiative that Nevada voters approved last year expanding gun background checks to unlicensed dealers is suing the governor and attorney general to try to make them enforce it. The measure mandating FBI background checks on private-party gun sales passed by less than 1 percentage point in November after Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval vetoed a similar measure in 2013. Attorney General Adam Laxalt has maintained that the new law can’t be enforced after the FBI informed the state in December it wants Nevada’s Department of Public Safety to conduct the checks itself in the same way...

  • Where did the Las Vegas Mass Murderer's Money Come From?

    One of the puzzles about the mass murderer in Las Vegas is the source of his money. His brother characterizes him as "very wealthy" and that "$100,000 is no big deal". His real estate holdings holdings have been estimated as worth several millions of dollars. He paid cash for his latest real estate, and gambled up to a million dollars a year, according to a real estate agent who dealt with him. From the dailymail.co.uk: The 64-year-old, who opened fire slaughtering 58 people at a country music festival at the weekend, bought his 2,000 sq ft home in Mesquite,...

    It was a heroic private security guard who stopped the mass killing coming from the Mandalay Bay Hotel.In the timeline published yesterday, it was not clear if the security guard was accompanying the police, or ahead of them. Now we know. Undersheriff Kevin McMahill gave a briefing yesterday, 3 October, at 6 p.m. In the briefing, Undersheriff McMahill details when the shooting ended. No more shots were fired at people outside the hotel after 10:19 p.m.The information about the ending of the shooting is given between 3:17 and 5:30 on the video. McMahill releases these facts in remarkable agreement...

    I, and others have been puzzled by the time it took to enter the room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Room 135 was where the mass killer set up to attack the Route 91 Harvest Country Music attendees. The first calls to 911 happened at 10:08 p.m. local time. The police blasted down the door to Room 135 on the 32nd floor about 72 minutes later. But what happened in between those times? At what time did the mass murderer stop shooting at people below? Those times are becoming clear.  From cbslocal.com: DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Gunfire...

    President Donald Trump Speaks After Las Vegas Shooting: The Deadliest In U.S. History President Donald Trump will give remarks Monday following the overnight mass shooting in Las Vegas, the deadliest in U.S. history, according to the White House. At least 50 people were killed and more than 400 people were injured Sunday night when a gunman, identified by authorities as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, opened fire from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino onto the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. Country star Jason Aldean was in the middle of his set when...

    Pro-Donald J. Trump GOP U.S. Senate challenger Danny Tarkanian has blown past incumbent Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), an opponent of the president and much of his agenda, per a new poll out of the state of Nevada obtained exclusively by Breitbart News ahead of its public release. Tarkanian, per the new poll from JMC Analytics, is up at 39 percent in the new survey. His lead towers eight points over the incumbent Heller’s 31 percent, spelling certain trouble for Senate GOP establishment forces desperate to save Heller’s seat. A whopping 31 percent are undecided between Heller and Tarkanian. Even so,...

    Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- The FBI has stated that it cannot and will not comply with the mandate prescribed by the “universal background check” referendum that was passed in November in Nevada.  The referendum was Ballot Question 1, a complicated eight page referendum that required private sales to be conducted through federally licensed dealers. From the Nevada Secretary of State archive.org: You can see that explicitly in subparagraph 3., the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, (NICS) is required to do the check, and *not* the Central Repository in Nevada, as is done according to Nevada law, currently. Nevada law allowed...

    Leading up to the November election, opponents of Question 1 — a measure to require background checks in Nevada for private gun sales or transfers — argued, among other things, that the initiative was poorly worded and would lead to a number of unintended consequences. Proponents of the measure — which passed with just 50.45 percent of the vote despite losing in every county except Clark — dismissed such concerns, arguing the measure was carefully crafted to avoid confusion. We now know who was correct. On Wednesday, the state attorney general said the law, set to become effective on Sunday,...

    I was at the Crossroads of the West gun show in Las Vegas when I learned about Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo's agitation for limits on firearm magazine sizes. Lombardo's statement to the Las Vegas Sun, "I’m a very avid hunter, I was in the military myself, and there’s no need to have a high-capacity magazine for any practical reason," is prima facie evidence that he is either (1) grossly unqualified for his job; or (2) willing to subordinate public safety to a political agenda that is far better suited to Los Angeles than any place in Nevada. Anybody with...

    The gun background check law knows as Question 1 just passed by 9,000 votes statewide. The ink isn’t even dry and Sheriff Lombardo has come out today supporting legislation to ban gun magazines with more than 10 rounds. As reported in the Las Vegas Sun today, Lombardo said “I’m a very avid hunter, I was in the military myself, and there’s no need to have a high-capacity magazine for any practical reason” Lombardo was the only sheriff in the state out of 17 to not oppose Question 1, the Bloomberg background check law.

    Californians are rushing to purchase the evil AR15 semi-automatic "assault" rifle before a new ban goes into effect on January 1, 2017. Governor Jerry Brown signed the gun-control measure into law back in July and with a 10-day waiting period for all gun sales, time is running out to purchase the gun and take possession before next year. All of these newly purchased guns must be registered with the state before the deadline kicks in on Wednesday, December 21.

    In 2016, Nevada was one of four states facing Michael Bloomberg funded attacks on Second Amendment rights.  As with most such attacks, deceit and misdirection were the focus.  Outright lies were repeated endlessly.  Much was made of bogus “studies” that  were carried out by activists behind the flimsiest of academic cover.  Second Amendment defenders in Nevada were outspent 3 to 1 in cash outlays, 19.7 million dollars to 6.6 million from Second Amendment supporters, primarily the NRA.The key to the proposition was what it was being marketed as doing, compared to what it would really do. On that question,...

    Republicans had excellent results in Tuesday’s high-stakes Senate races, winning numerous tough battles to preserve their majority in the chamber for the next two years. But Tuesday’s results revealed an interesting dynamic: The Republican Senate candidates who rejected President-elect Donald Trump and tried to go it alone were the only ones who ended up losing their races. Overall, there were eight Republican-held seats and one Democrat-held seat that were competitive going into Tuesday night: Illinois, Wisconsin, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Florida, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Missouri. Of the nine Republicans in these competitive races, six of them stood by Trump...

    Gun control proponent Gabby Giffords was in Nevada over the weekend campaigning for the same background check her attacker, Jared Loughner, passed to acquire his handgun. Loughner shot Gabby Giffords on January 8, 2011. According to Guns.com, Giffords’s stop was part of the gun control bus tour she and her husband, Mark Kelly, have been on for 14 weeks. She was in Nevada to push Question 1, which would expand background checks to more gun sales by requiring private sales and transfers to be checked just like retail sales.

    We’ve reported that Nevada’s Question 1, a ballot initiative aimed at expanding background checks, would only affect legal gun owners, while doing nothing to reduce violent crime. As it turns out, this isn’t just an opinion held by the measure’s detractors. During a news conference on Tuesday, one of the main proponents of Question 1 admitted—while discussing his support of the measure, no less—that it had no chance of eliminating illegal gun purchases: “I can go out on the street today and buy all sorts of things on the black market. … I’m not suggesting this market will go away...
