LAS VEGAS SHOOTING – SHOULD GUN LAWS BE CHANGED IMMEDIATELY?

Advertisements

Awful, horrifying scenes from Las Vegas today.

Our thoughts and prayers to all caught up in it.

LAS VEGAS SHOOTING/ GUN LAWS AMERICA

I am shocked to discover that it is LEGAL to buy and own an automatic weapon in that state. This is not the first ‘mass’ shooting incident there and won’t be the last and so, the debate rages on.

Here are the Nevada laws as they stand now:

Define ‘firearm’
State law defines a firearm as any device designed to be used as a weapon from which a projectile can be expelled through the barrel by the force of any explosion or other form of combustion. A firearm that can be concealed — that is, a handgun — is one with a barrel less than 12 inches long. (NRS 202.253)

Limits on regulation
Nevada has a “limited authority” to regulate firearms. It does not require permits, firearm registration or owner licenses for firearm owners. (NRS 244.364)

This is something that terrifies me, and quite rightly so. There are many dead and even more in a critical state today because one human being has decide to wreak havoc and was able to arm himself to do so…
I know many of our American readers believe guns should be legal but automatic weapons?

Who on earth would NEED to own a machine gun, other than police/military? 

Las Vegas shooting/ gun laws America/ should gun laws be cahnged

Let me hear your thoughts below ladies…I would love to see a discussion opened on this topic, it’s becoming more and more hard to ignore.

Once again, sending hope and love to anyone involved.
