What is the future of Gun Control, Gun Rights and the 2nd Amendment in 2020 and beyond?
This past decade has proved to be a pivotal one for both advocates of Gun Control as well as advocates of Gun Rights. Throughout the 2010s, we have seen several horrific mass shootings, along with increasingly-polarizing debates, protests, not to mention new laws on the state and federal level in favor of both gun control and gun rights. The most recent phenomenon occurring in the State of Virginia. State Democrats, hot off the heels of winning control of both legislative houses as well as the Governor's Mansion have proposed, and are currently voting on numerous gun control laws, some of which have generated enormous controversy as well as a large gun rights rally which (thankfully) came and went peacefully, with only a single arrest reported for an unrelated violation of a long-standing ban on wearing masks in public. Some states, such as Virginia, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Vermont and Colorado, as well as long-time gun control havens California and New York have been, and are currently in the process of debating and passing various new gun control laws. Laws such as a ban on the purchase and possession of magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, even if you legally possessed them prior to the law taking effect (otherwise known as "Grandfathering"). Other proposed laws include a newer, harsher, state-level version of the now-expired Federal Assault Weapons Ban, "Red Flag" laws, background checks on the sale of ammunition, increased taxes on firearms and ammunition, limits on the amount of firearms an individual can buy at once, waiting periods and more. Other states, such as Texas, Idaho, Oklahoma and others have gone in the other direction, passing laws such as nixing the requirement for a permit to carry a firearm concealed or openly, commonly known as "Constitutional Carry". Some states such as Virginia and California are seeing numerous counties declare themselves "2nd Amendment Sanctuaries", where local and state law enforcement officials have vowed not to enforce any new gun control laws, even if ordered to by the Governor. A lawmaker in Virginia has threatened the deployment of the National Guard in order to enforce new laws (even though only the Governor, as well as the President has that authority, but I digress). In the courts, various gun control laws on the state and federal level have been challenged with mixed results. Some laws, such as magazine bans and Assault Weapons Bans have, for the most part, survived lawsuits by various gun rights organizations. However, there is at least one case before the United States Supreme Court out of the State of New York concerning a now-repealed regulation prohibiting the transportation of legally-owned handguns outside city limits which has implications for other gun control cases in the legal pipeline all over the country. There are also several other 2nd Amendment cases currently on hold before the High Court. Could this case possibly become Heller II and open the door towards striking down a multitude of gun laws on the state and federal level? As far as the 2020 Democratic Primaries go, guns have been mentioned off and on, most notably by now-former presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke who was quoted at a primary debate as saying "Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15 and AK-47". Many believe that this comment is what sunk not only his presidential campaign, but also his political career in Texas, perhaps nationwide. Some believe that these comments will also weigh down the eventual Democratic nominee's chances at winning the election based upon winning certain swing states, several of which tend to support gun rights. President Trump's record on guns has been mixed. On one hand, he repealed (with Congress's help) a Social Security Administration regulation which would've banned firearms ownership by anyone taking social security checks if he/she met certain criteria, such as having a "representative payee" or being otherwise unable to manage their finances. He has been appointing (and the GOP-controlled Senate has confirmed) many federal judges as well as 2 Supreme Court Justices, most of whom hold pro-gun views, which is likely to shape their opinions on various upcoming gun law challenges working their way through multiple circuit and district courts around the country. On the other hand, he has, through Executive Order, banned "Bump Stocks" a device which has been attributed to the high amount of fatalities and injuries inflicted upon concert-goers in Las Vegas from a casino resort across the street on October 1st, 2017. He has also said to "...Take the guns first, due process second" with regards to taking away guns from potential mass shooters and criminals, a statement which drew the ire of gun rights groups as well as fellow Republicans. 1. Where do you see the gun issue going in 2020 and beyond? 2. How important will it be? 3. Which side will ultimately win out? 4. Will there be any new legislation on the federal level, or will this issue be tackled almost exclusively at the state level? 5. What will the new legal and political landscape surrounding guns look like as firearms technology evolves and 3-D printed firearms become more common, more well-built and harder to track?
I am headed to Las Vegas in a week, and I know that Nevada has reciprocity with my Texas concealed handgun license. However I am unfamiliar with Las Vegas Nevada laws. Is the city allowed to have different rules than what is granted by the state? And what are the rules regarding carrying in casinos? I've carried in casinos in Las Vegas as part of a security detail but never as a private citizen

CCW in Southern Nevada - Some info and experiences
Preface - This is to provide some perspective for those interested in concealed carry in Southern Nevada, based on my experiences here. There are various places to take the CCW class in town. I went to the Gun Store on Tropicana because it was recommended by a friend, and free*. To define Free, the class itself is free, but you need to buy their frangible ammo for the testing. When testing with 9mm it was $25 - that goes for all mid-caliber rounds. For .22, its $16, and .45 is $30. All in all, I enjoyed the class. The instructor was full of insight and really focused on the responsibility one must bear as a CCW holder. 9/10 for the class. After passing your class and qualification (which takes all day), you get to go spend some time at the LVMPD fingerprint bureau (on a different day). This process can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 4 hours, depending on how busy they are. There is quite the collection of characters that have to visit that department so people watching is one way to pass time. They go through the paperwork, relieve you of 100 hard earned dollars, make you wait some more, and then print you and photograph you. Now you wait. And wait. And wait. And wait some more. By law, the LVMPD has 120 days to process your application and send it to you. Mine arrived in 113 days. My theory is that somewhere up the bureaucratic chain, someone said, "Well, by law we have 120 days. Let's make these bastards wait as long as possible. We'll do the backgrounds which takes maybe 2 weeks then file them. At 110 days we'll print the cards and mail them." Anyways, that's my theory at least. FYI, it is legal to carry in a casino/hotel. Really, the only places it is illegal to CCW are municipal buildings, the airport, schools and day cares, and Clark County parks (a local ordinance, not statewide). I've had experiences with both LVMPD and Henderson PD while concealed carrying. Both were respectful and had no issue. Ex. 1 - LVMPD - My business was broken into, and I was first on scene - prior to my Security Company arriving. I drew my weapon, called 911, and informed LVMPD Dispatch I was on site and carrying a weapon (since I didn't want to get shot). After a couple minutes I determined the building was empty and holstered my weapon. LVMPD arrived a bit later, asked me about it, told him it was secured, and it was no big deal. Ex. 2 - Henderson - I got pulled over for expired tags. Stupid, I know, but kinda not my fault. DMV never updated my mailing address when I moved, and only updated my physical address even though I checked the box for both. Anyways, I roll down my windows and keep both hands on the wheel. Officer approaches on passenger side and informs me the reg is expired. I was surprised, and told my side of it. He said, no worries, proof of insurance and license will do. Since I carry IWB right next to my wallet, I didn't want him to notice something without me informing him. You are not legally obligated to tell them you have a weapon. My personal opinion is to decide the attitude of the officer, and use your judgement. I told him that I am currently carrying a concealed weapon, and that it is in the area of my wallet. He was calm and said, "Ok, no problem." He didn't reach for his gun, or anything like that. I handed over my license and CCW permit, and he just gave me a warning. Anyways, this is a bit long, but hopefully will provide some perspective for those in the area or coming to Nevada. Keep Calm and Carry On my brothers and sisters.
