    BDR WARNING: SB171 (Adds pocket knives to the NRS 202.265)

    http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...ory.cfm?ID=418

    This bill expands the list of weapons that are restricted from carry in a higher education facility as well as day care facility and the other buildings listed in that Statute. Most alarming, this is one of the first time a "dangerous knife" is defined in the NRS that I am aware of, and they define it as
    "...a knife having a blade that is 2
    19 inches or more in length when measured from the tip of the knife
    20 which is customarily sharpened to the unsharpened extension of
    21 the blade which forms the hinge connecting the blade to the
    22 handle."


    So... In various efforts to gain CCW on campus, this hurts the overall goal. Also, more dangerously, it allows the potential for this "dangerous knife" provision to be added to other laws and make criminals out of ordinary people carrying a clipped pocket knife in their pockets. Email your legislators!!!!

    Also it extends beyond schools. It says events sponsored by schools is off limits as well. Who came up with this bill?

    It bans possession of all deadly weapons, which is a catchall that they could use to arrest anyone who possesses any implement. I hope this thing doesn't pass. If it does pass, I'm glad I'm about to graduate because it'd be a pain having to leave behind my can opener and other tools when I'm on campus for 12+ hours. It'd probably also make engineering lab classes longer because the instructor usually only brings one knife that everyone has to share when one is required and it really speeds things up when few people bring their own implements.

    Not to mention working on projects and building things on campus when no instructor is around to provide the "deadly implements" like knives and saws and drills and hammers and nails. This bill won't just impair self-defense on campus, it will impair education on campus, unless you are a liberal art student who never has to go near a tool.

    Beg to differ on that point. 25 years ago I was a lib art student. And I used tools every day. I was a technical theatre major. So I used all sorts of tools in set building, audio and lighting.
