So his police department doesn't have high capacity magazines since he says there is no reason to have them? And that came out the mouth of an elected Sheriff? What a douche bag. Seems to me they should just outlaw violence.

High-capacity magazine ban a must for Nevadansí safety
Sunday, Dec. 11, 2016 | 2 a.m.

By overwhelmingly supporting universal background checks for firearms purchases, Clark County voters made it abundantly clear last month that they were concerned about gun violence.

Now, itís time for Las Vegas-area lawmakers to go a step further to protect Nevadans and push to ban the sale of high-capacity magazines in the state.

Eight states and the District of Columbia already have imposed such prohibitions, and with good reason. Thereís simply no legitimate civilian use for magazines that hold dozens upon dozens of rounds of ammunition.

Donít believe us? Fine, then listen to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo.

ďIím a very avid hunter, I was in the military myself, and thereís no need to have a high-capacity magazine for any practical reason,Ē Lombardo said during a recent interview with the Sun.

To the contrary, the dangers posed by such magazines are obvious. Lombardo says the time it takes for suspects to change magazines gives potential victims an opportunity to escape and law enforcement officials an opportunity to safely fire back. That being the case, the fewer times a shooter has to switch out magazines, the fewer the chances for people to get away and authorities to get a protected shot.

Itís also not uncommon for guns to jam during magazine change-outs, Lombardo says.

That being the case, a ban on sales makes sense.

Of course, the NRA crowd will howl at this suggestion like the Constitution is being set on fire. We can practically hear them now: It will make law-abiding, responsible gun owners less able to protect themselves and their property! Itís a step toward the government disarming citizens!

Neither of those arguments makes any sense. Unless we missed the news that the nation is being ravaged by literal armies of burglars, itís difficult to imagine a scenario in which someone would need a 100-round magazine to protect their home from intruders.

And as far as disarming the American people, this isnít a call for a ban on all magazines or semi-automatic weapons. The states that have imposed restrictions still allow for 10- or 15-round versions, which would be an acceptable model for Nevada.

Plus, the argument that a firepower restriction makes Americans more vulnerable to a governmental takeover may have been logical in the days of single-shot muskets, but what level would make people feel safe enough today? Allowing them to have machine guns? Tanks? Their own squadron of F-35 Joint Strike Fighters? Because the government has all those things, you know.

So letís allow rational thinking to prevail when it comes to high-capacity magazines. Restricting sales could help protect people in tragic shootings ó potential victims and the responding authorities. And given that thereís no practical use for the magazines, thereís not a downside.

The Clark County Democrats who were swept back into control of the Legislature during last monthís election should feel emboldened to take action on the issue during the 2017 session, given that the background check initiative passed by more than 100,000 votes here.

No doubt, there will be resistance among the rural legislative representatives, given that the ballot measure failed in every county but Clark County. But itís worth the fight. With Metro saying a rise in gun violence has helped raise the murder rate in 2016 to its highest level in 20 years, residents in the Las Vegas Valley have every reason to support reasonable restrictions on firearms.

Well if common sense prevailed, an increase in the murder rate would suggest that the people of Nevada need protection more now than ever. However, we are talking libtards, where common sense is not a factor, let alone a prevailing factor.

Clark County needs to restrict LE officers to 10 round magazines. That would encourage more law enforcement officers to oppose this logic. Officers become citizens when they retire so it should not make any difference.....right?

Other than making a liberal statement, just what affect will this bill have? Background checks are required by federal law and have been for a long time. Guess I'm just asking, what's different now?

As was pointed out, these folks elected Harry Reid, so what would we expect?

Regards,

The creeping cancer that is California liberalism has been infecting Las Vegas for the last decade or two. They all moved to Las Vegas because California is becoming part of mexico unless you are very wealthy. Once they got there they began working on transforming it to what they fled from. I moved to Utah to get away from them. Now I see the same thing happening here. Harry Reid made a fortune while serving the public. One can only imagine how he did that.

Are Clark county residents concerned about drugs, prostitution, and gambling? Those things breed violence. Oh, wait. Those things make us lots of money.

Did not mean to offend you socal. I did say California liberals. If you are no liberal you should not be offended. Plenty of great people in California.

Any time libtards say, common sense, or rational thought.. It never occurs to them that they are anything but, and are unwilling to debate the conversation or point.

Grizz, chill. He was just saying why he moved. Wasn't calling you a libtard. We'll there goes my interest of buying land in Barstow. Vegas is clearly infected. What gets me is how blindly people are being to politicians.
