Nevada: Magazine Ban Legislation Could be Considered in 2017 Legislative Session – “Remember when the anti-gunners claimed they only wanted background checks? Looks like they are already back for more. After spending almost 20 million dollars to narrowly pass Question 1, anti-gun groups and advocates are already beating the drum for more gun control in the Silver State. Over the weekend, the Las Vegas Sun published an editorial advocating for a ban on so-called “high capacity” magazines. The article shows the arbitrary nature of their demands by stating they would be fine with either a 10 or 15 round limitation. Well which is it, 10 or 15? Why not 15 or 20?” The number is actually zero. They’re just not prepared to say that yet.
Tucson’s gun fight isn’t about guns – “Tucson’s fierce fight with the state over destroying confiscated weapons will be a testament of whether Arizona has reached a point of total Republican dominance. How the courts rule in Tucson’s gun issue and other cases that pit the conservative state government against progressive cities will set Arizona’s political tone in 2017 and beyond. Tucson’s brawl isn’t about guns. It would be foolish to risk millions of dollars over a few thousand weapons. City leaders simply don’t want to be told what to do.”

Colorado school district votes to let teachers carry guns – “A rural Colorado school district decided to allow its teachers and other school staff members to carry guns on campus to protect students. The Hanover School District 28 board voted 3-2 Wednesday night to allow school employees to volunteer to be armed on the job after undergoing training. The district’s two schools serve about 270 students about 30 miles southeast of Colorado Springs, and it takes law enforcement an average of 20 minutes to get there. The district currently shares an armed school resource officer with four other school districts.”
Battlefield 1’s Latest Patch Nerfs Popular Sniper Rifle -“Every snipe rifle in the game has a ‘sweet spot’ where it can kill an enemy in one shot. The sweet spot on Martini-Henry is very short. If your target was within thirty or eighty meters, it took one shot to the body to kill them. It just so happens that most encounters in Battlefield 1 falls into that distance range. It made the Martini-Henry hard to use but rewarding if you could aim. These new changes have seriously ramped down its killing power . . . Rest easy, Martini-Henry. It was fun while it lasted.”
