    Police have confirmed a legally purchased 9mm handgun was used by the attacker in Wednesday’s University of Nevada, Las Vegas, mass shooting. CNN noted that Las Vegas Metro Police Department Sheriff Kevin McMahill indicated the handgun, a Taurus PT92 pistol, was purchased legally by the 67-year-old suspect in Las Vegas roughly 18 months ago. When law enforcement indicates a firearm was purchased legally, they are indicating it was purchased at retail via a background check.

    A coalition of Catholic nuns has filed a lawsuit against gunmaker Smith & Wesson, calling for the company to stop producing AR-style rifles, which the women claim are “the weapon of choice for numerous mass murderers.” The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in a Nevada district court, alleges that Smith & Wesson has repeatedly ignored “red flags” and failed to respond appropriately to mass shootings in the United States. The lawsuit references some of the deadliest mass killings in recent U.S. history — including at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., in 2012; a high school in Parkland, Fla., in 2018; and...

    President Joe Biden released a statement calling for an “assault weapons” ban following Wednesday’s University of Nevada, Las Vegas, handgun attack. Breitbart News reported that UNLV attacker killed three people and left a fourth critically wounded. And CNN reported the gunman was a “67-year-old career college professor.” It was later learned that the 67-year-old had applied to be a professor at UNLV “but was not hired,” according to ABC News. When Biden released his statement, facts about the UNLV attack, including the description of the shooter–a professor–and the type of gun used–a handgun–were not known. Yet Biden pushed for a...

    The six Republicans are accused of falsifying records and each face two felony charges. A Nevada grand jury has indicted the six Republicans — including the chair of the Nevada Republican Party — who falsely pledged Nevada’s electoral votes to Donald Trump following the 2020 election despite President Joe Biden’s victory in the state. Attorney General Aaron Ford speaks during a joint press conference with Treasurer Zach Conine, Assembly Speaker Steve Yeager (D-Las Vegas) and Secretary of State Francisco Aguilar during a press conference on the Capitol steps on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, in Carson City.

    L.A. Lakers star LeBron James called for more gun control following Wednesday’s handgun attack on the gun free University of Nevada, Las Vegas, campus. ESPN quoted James saying: It just goes back to what I said before about guns in America. I think it’s such a longer conversation, but we keep dealing with the same story, this same conversation every single time it happens, and it just continues to happen. The ability to get a gun, the ability to do these things over and over and over, and there’s been no change is literally ridiculous. It makes no sense that...

    The man suspected of fatally shooting three people and wounding another at a Las Vegas university Wednesday was a professor who unsuccessfully sought a job at the school, a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press. The gunman was killed in a shootout with law enforcement, police said. The suspect previously worked at East Carolina University in North Carolina, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to release the information publicly. Police didn’t immediately identify the gunman, the victims or a possible motive.

    A Nevada grand jury on Wednesday indicted six Republicans who submitted certificates to Congress falsely declaring Donald Trump the winner of the 2020 presidential election in their state, making Nevada the third to seek charges against so-called “fake electors.” “We cannot allow attacks on democracy to go unchallenged,” Nevada’s Democratic Attorney General Aaron Ford said in a statement Wednesday. “Today’s indictments are the product of a long and thorough investigation, and as we pursue this prosecution, I am confident that our judicial system will see justice done.” The fake electors — involved in the state GOP or Clark County GOP...

    A meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Las Vegas found webcam footage showing the northern lights, aka aurora borealis, appearing over southern Nevada early Friday morning. Matthew Woods knew to check webcams for the aurora borealis Friday morning because National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center had forecast a strong geomagnetic storm would occur. He spotted the aurora, which appear as pillars of light traveling across the sky, in footage captured by a Bureau of Land Management camera on Angel Peak at nearly 9,000 feet. The mountain is 30 miles from the Strip, as the crow...

    [cut] And the truth is—everyone knows it. This weekend, President Trump was invited to step onto the football field in South Carolina, and the place went nuts. An Instagrammer posting about it simply labeled their footage “SC loves Trump.” But Trump had a similar moment in Iowa in New Hampshire, and he gobsmacked the DeSantis team with his reception in Florida. So here’s how this is going to go. Trump will win the Iowa caucuses on 1/15. This will likely dismantle the “Ron DeSantis as Ted Cruz” narrative for this cycle. On 1/23, President Trump will win New Hampshire. This...
  • Several States May Have Measures Next Year for Abortions Up to Birth

    After Ohio’s Issue 1 vote legalized abortion with no gestational limit, the pro-abortion lobby is planning to put similar referendums on the ballots of many other states. As of November 14, pro-abortion initiatives are guaranteed to be on the ballots of two deep-blue states: Maryland and New York. However, abortion is currently legal in both states until so-called “fetal viability” – which is usually defined as falling between 23 and 24 weeks of pregnancy. Loopholes allow killing babies in abortions up to birth in both states. In many other states, the prospect of putting abortion to a vote next year...

    Advocates are skeptical of a new $2 million effort to find solutions to the ever-growing population of wild horses on Nevada’s ranges and elsewhere. But a Friday vote in Washington, D.C., is a step forward in bringing $11 million to help solve the problem. A Bureau of Land Management (BLM) news release on Wednesday announced up to $2 million available for a variety of studies or research efforts. “Fifteen years ago I might have applauded all the grants BLM seems to have money for each year. But after 15 years of watching BLM say they have no money for management...

    The political strategist who propelled Joe Biden into the vice presidency in 2008 has suggested the president should consider exiting the 2024 race after another brutal poll. David Axelrod pointed to Sunday polling from The New York Times and Siena College that shows the 80-year-old trialing behind Donald Trump in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania. 'Only Joe Biden can make this decision. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party,' Axelrod said on X, formerly Twitter. 'What he needs to decide is whether that is wise; whether it's in HIS best interest or...
