LAS VEGAS — Handgun registration in Clark County could become a thing of the past, thanks to an Assembly bill state lawmakers are considering.
As the I-Team found, though, the proposed legislation that would give the legislators sole authority to regulate the possession, sale and transport of firearms in Nevada has prompted questions as to how other gun laws might be affected.
The county’s handgun registration program began in 1948, not long after mobster Bugsy Siegel and his backers opened the Flamingo hotel. More than 1 million weapons have since been logged into the system. Blue registration cards are issued for each pistol where the gun is purchased and also for each handgun brought to police from other states.
Those blue cards could soon become relics.
New Sheriff Joe Lombardo, who campaigned on a promise to end the county’s gun registration program, hasn’t changed his mind.
“I do intend to do what I can to get rid of the program,” he said.
Lombardo said the manpower could be better used processing permits for concealed weapon holders.
“We have a mandate by law to produce that license within 120 days,” he said. “Well, we’re right on the cusp of going past those 120 days.”
But Assembly Bill 127, introduced last week by Assembly Speaker John Hambrick, R-Las Vegas, has led to concerns from Progress Now Nevada. The nonprofit organization doesn’t oppose the elimination of handgun registration but spokeswoman Jocelyn Torres said the proposed bill could end other gun laws her group supports.
One such law is the cooling off period required before a first-time buyer can purchase a handgun in Las Vegas and North Las Vegas.
“And that is concerning to us considering the rate of suicides by guns in this state,” she said.
Metro Police ironically opposed a bill in 2013 that would have ended gun registration in the county. Metro lobbyist Chuck Callaway told lawmakers during that session: “Gun registration is a valuable tool for law enforcement.”
Callaway also said at the time: “It is not uncommon for us to have people try to register guns and find out they are registered sex offenders or have other issues on their records showing that they should not be in possession of firearms.”
Lombardo, though, believes it is a program the county can live without. That position marks a departure from his predecessor, former Sheriff Doug Gillespie.
Still, Metro is reviewing AB 127 to make sure the bill doesn’t have any unintended consequences.

Rifle, Pistol, Target Shooting and Archery Open Full-Time

Clark County commissioners and Congressional representatives will celebrate the grand opening ceremony for the Clark County Shooting Park on Saturday, March 27 at 10:30 a.m.

County Commission Chairman Rory Reid, Commissioner Tom Collins, in whose district the park is located, U.S. Sen.

John Lee and Wayne LaPierre, CEO & Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association Board of Directors will officially open the park located at 11357 N. Decatur Blvd. The park is funded with grants from the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act, which uses money from the sale of public lands to pay for parks, trails and natural areas within the county.

The facility, located in the far Northwest, is the result of citizen requests for a safe public facility for gun owners to practice safe shooting. The 148-acre first phase is now open Wednesdays through Sundays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and features 24 combination trap and skeet fields with a pro shop and cafeteria; an archery range and building with a 30-seat classroom and restrooms; a public rifle and pistol range with a pro shop and convenience store; and a hunter education center with a 90-seat classroom with archery, rifle, pistol and shotgun ranges and a simulated hunting course. The site also has a shotgun center with 80 spaces for recreational vehicles. A separate host area will house safety officers on-site.

The facility partially opened on weekends in December and recently opened its doors full-time, drawing recreational and competitive shooters from around the County and throughout the U.S.

Clark County Shooting Park dedicated

The new Clark County Shooting Park was officially dedicated Tuesday. The 2,900 acre facility is off the 215 and Decatur in the far North end of the valley.

The first phase opens to the public in December. It will include a pistol and rifle range and combination trap and skeet fields.

Nearby homeowners lost a court battle to stop the park over fears of noise and safety. The park manager, says safety is the main concern. They did not picket the dedication.“Statistics show 45% of everybody in town owns a firearm. Metro’s registered almost 3,000 the last 3 years. So there’s a lot of firearms in Clark County right now who have no place to go,” said Don Turner, Clark County Shooting Park Manager.

Members of the congressional delegation who sponsored the federal legislation that paved the way for the park were joined the state and local leaders who also made it possible.  They included Senator Harry Reid, Senator John Ensigh, Congresswoman Shelley Berkely, governor Jim Gibbons and State Senator John Lee.  Other promenet attendees, included commissioners Tom Collins, Rory Reid and Judge Donald Mosley 

Wayne LaPierre executive vice-president of the National Rifle Assoc. also spoke. In attendance was Cris Cox executive director NRA-ILA, and Larry Keane, Senior Vice President of the National Sports Shooting Foundation.

Over 300 people were in attendance. Everyone was overwelmed at it beauty and thought that went into developing the shooting park.

 

Brittany Gaskill has been shooting with the Silver State Shooting Sport Assoc. under the guidance of Paul Theile. This article appeared in the “Kingman Miner”. SSSSA has high hopes she will  make the Olympic team in 2012.

Gaskill on target for 2012 Olympics
Air.rifle whiz shoots for spot on team this weekend

KINGMAN – When the 2012 Olympic Games in London begin, there’s a possibility Kingman/Las Vegas could be represented and have the very first athlete to perform at those games. Brittney Gaskill is literally shooting for the Olympics.

Brittney Gaskill looks down the barrel of her Anschutz rifle. Gaskill will attempt to earn a spot in the USA Olympic Trials Saturday in California.

Gaskill, 16, will be in South El Monte, Calif., Saturday for the USA Shooting International Preliminary Tryouts at the Los Angeles Rifle and Revolver Club. Her goal: Advance to the USA Olympic Trials in the 50-meter women’s three position rifle and the 10-meter air rifle. Gaskill’s short history in the sport and passion for it makes it easy to believe she can do it.

“Most definitely, yes,” Gaskill said. “I’ve reached the scores before.”

A score of 565 out of 600 Saturday will automatically qualify Gaskill for the trials. “I shot 554 as a freshman,” she said. “And I’ve gotten better.”

Gaskill disappears into her own world when she’s shooting. It’s where she’s able to put the daily grind of her life aside for a short time.

“When I’m up there at the line, it’s just me, my rifle, my ammo and the target,” Gaskill said. “It’s an escape from the reality of the world just so I can have some of my own time.”

Accidentally found

It was only by accident that Gaskill found her love for the sport. When she lived in New Albany, Ind., she told her mother, Stacie Crowley, that she wanted to go out for the NAHS rifle team. “I thought I would be spinning rifles,” Gaskill said. She went to a meeting one day after school and sat through a safety meeting. She wasn’t sure what that meeting had to do with spinning rifles, but figured it was required because they were dealing with guns. After the meeting, Gaskill was led to a multipurpose room where she saw people shooting.

“I went home that day and told my mom I wouldn’t be spinning rifles, I’d be shooting them,” Gaskill said.
Her mother took it all in stride. Crowley said she didn’t have any preconceived notions about shooting.

“It didn’t bother me at all,” Crowley said. “I thought it was kind of interesting. Instead of a soccer mom, I became a rifle-team “mom”

Making her mark

It didn’t take Gaskill long to figure out she found a place where she could excel. She was the first freshman ever to make the varsity rifle team at NAHS and was the youngest participant at nationals in 2008, which was held at Ft. Benning, GA. NAHS finished third in the Navy Division and Gaskill was 24th overall out of 300 participants. Everyone says she has a raw talent for this, Crowley say.

The raw natural talent is the way Gaskill is able to balance the $2,000 Anschutz rifle, which Gaskill named “Jersey,” her stepfather Charles Crowley said.

“She’s one with the rifle,” he said. “She’s what they call a sensitive shooter.”

An added benefit shooting has to offer is the abundance of college scholarships available to shooters. Schools such as Nevada-Reno, Kentucky, Arizona, UCLA and the military academies all offer scholarships in the NCAA sanctioned sports. It’s another avenue that Gaskill is pursuing.

“There are tons of scholarships,” Charles said. “We’re crossing our fingers for West Point.”

Serious competition

Shooting is just like any other sport out there; it requires a lot of preparation to be ready for the big events. Practice, training, diet and coaching are all things that Gaskill has to utilize to make her Olympic dream come true.

Gaskill said she tries to shoot every day, but when she can’t make it out to the range, she’ll practice her positions kneeling, prone and standing – at home.

“Practice has been going really good,” she said. “I’ve been working on my standing, and I’m getting better.”

The sport also requires physical training, which is right up Gaskill’s alley. “It’s my thing,” she said.

Meals have already been planned for Gaskill in anticipation for Saturday’s shoot. Friday’s dinner will consist of pasta and her Saturday breakfast will be milk, dried fruits and nuts.

When Gaskill moved from Indiana, she found herself in the market for a shooting coach. Paul Thiele of Las Vegas heard about her, looked up her scores from the national competition and declared he would coach Gaskill without having met her. Theile was ready to retire, but when he found Gaskill he quickly un-retired.

Gaskill said Thiele has been able to teach her how to block out her surroundings while shooting and makes her strive for perfection.

“Perfect is in my vocabulary,” Gaskill said.

Theile told the family they may want to plan on being in London come 2012.

“He told me there would be five Olympic tickets available,” Charles said. “We get four and he gets one.

A hearing is going to be held on the injuction against the Clark County Shooting Park to stop construction  at  the Federal Courthouse at 333 Las Vegas Blvd South, Room 6B, Las Vegas, NV 89101. Tuesday, January 20 at 10 a.m. The home owners in the area filed the lawsuit and then are upset that they weren’t invited to the test, unbelievable….we have learned, however, that there were homeowners involved with the sound testing and that it really did take place  No one heard the shots fired, but results are pending.
 
If you can make it please show up and show your support for the Shooting Range.

Neighbors Seek Federal Injunction Against Gun Park

Updated: Aug 25, 2008 09:51 PM PDT

.

The battle over a shooting park in the northern part of the Las Vegas valley has now moved to federal court.

A group of residents is calling the gun park a “Disneyland with guns” and the county is not commenting on this latest filing. The shooting park is located between Buffalo and Decatur at the far northern end of the valley.

“It’s peaceful, quiet, beautiful view of the mountains, kids playing in the streets.” This is how neighbors who live in the northwest part of the valley describe their neighborhood. But they say this will all change because of a gun park that’s being built near their homes.

On Monday neighbors walked from their attorney’s office to the Lloyd George Federal Court building where their lawyer filed the paperwork on their behalf.

“All complaints are efiled and then there will also be a motion seeking a hearing for an injunction. An injunction would simply say let’s stop and reconsider the environmental concerns, the nature of the use, the volume to people that will be traveling there every day,” said Matthew Callister, attorney.

Tyson Wrensch lives in a neighborhood and says he wants the park moved, but also asks that the county change the way it discloses major projects like this.

“The builders in that area are still not showing a shooting range near these homes. Why hasn’t the county stepped in. I had to sign a disclosure for Aliante casino which hasn’t been built yet, and that’s five miles away,” Wrensch said.

Lorraine Lennard also lives in the neighborhood and says the county has compared the noise level to a barking dog or a helicopter.

Imagine listening to a barking dog, or a helicopter or constant repetition of gun fire for twelve hours a day, it’s enough to drive a women crazy,” she said.

Neighbors say the county notified them that the 750-foot radius for a project is larger than McCarran International Airport and six times larger than Disneyland. The county says they can not talk about pending litigation.

This is on Las Vegas Now web-site.  Construction will continue until judge hears the case.
