    I like this. Hopefully every legislator jumps on the bandwagon and gets a CCW. Dems in this state are capable of supporting gun rights, they just need a little more immersion.

    Apparently, the exception to the state law that forbids arms in the legislative building for legislators themselves requires that no one can know which legislators have informed the leadership (required) that they will be carrying. So, open carry is out.

    But we have at least three legislators (Fiore, Seaman, and Shelton) who are open carriers, at least on occasion. It's just doubly cool that all three are women. Moms demand action, anyone?

    Nine total have informed the leadership that they will be carrying concealed.

    Apparently, the R idiot cracking the jokes isn't one of them. He obviously lacks the brain power.

    I'm quite aware of that and I've certainly figured that out the purpose of this site after being on it for 6 years. Legislators, however, are not allowed to OC in the chambers, so for them to have CCWs seems to be the next best option to further 2A/A1S11 causes in Nevada.

    Thanks for the interesting article. Don't miss the comments. I wonder how legislation might be crafted to break the pay 4 permits rice-bowl? "No person shall pay for exercise of an infringement but to the state only."

    It was an observation only - not a admonition.
