Frontier Carry is the larger version of Nevada Carry, the websites/blog where thousands of Nevadans and Westerners have learned about their gun rights and open/concealed carry. It has been your support and interest that has made us successful. We brought the knowledge, but you brought the changes to Nevada. With your help, we can continue to broaden the understanding of the history of gun culture in America and the effect it has had on gun control and vise versa. By looking into the past, we can better understand our future. But we need your help to do it!
I'm asking you for $1 a month. If you appreciate our work and can afford a buck a month, please help out and defray some of the costs of hosting. I'm not asking you to scrimp, save, or make sacrifices; donate that to the NVFAC. If you can give, would like to give, then please give. I'm not looking to profit or get rich, just looking for the ability to keep providing a valuable service to our community.
This helps us keep the lights on and cover expenses where the paltry ad revenue can't. It's a way to contribute something to help keep spreading the truth about gun laws, gun control, and history. In return, you get access to rare tidbits I've found in historical research (old articles, clippings, photos), links to scholarly articles, invitations to meet ups, premium Q&A questions (you ask, we research), and first reads of rough drafts of the open carry book (under development).
This "perqs" aren't the best, I know, but I'll give you what I can that is the fruit of my labor behind the computer screen. A lot of this information is lost to the public consciousness, locked up in archives and dusty books.
This will never be a full-time venture, unfortunately, but due to health concerns and issues with my day job, constant attention to all matters gun rights in Nevada and the Intermountain West have become difficult to keep up with. Your donations make it possible for us to continue working towards the goal of full-time activism.
It’s been 20 years since Columbine and our schools are no safer. In 2013, after the Newton/Sandy Hook shooting it should have been abundantly clear that the only thing that stops a mass murderer is a good guy with a gun. Yet the majority of states continue to deny their staff, students, and guests their constitutional rights by forcing them to disarm. This is blatant criminal negligence and damn near makes the legislators, administrators, union flunkies, and brainwashed leftist teaches accessories to murder.
California doubled down, first taking away the ability of CCW holders to carry on campuses and then removed the ability of local school authorities to allow CCW precisely because “red” county districts were allowing it. At the state and federal level, all the wrong steps are being taken. “Red flag” laws, which might be useful if we could trust the damn government to first do its job identifying these monsters and not use it as tool to stomp on the rest of us, are the wrong thing. We also have seen banning private gun sales and all sorts of symbolic bans to advance gun control, but not safe lives.
20 years and our school administrators have learned nothing. Our politicians do nothing. Weak-kneed men like Brian Sandoval torpedo the chances for willing teachers to save lives. Virtue signaling leftists continue to campaign against self-defense in schools. Brave adults continue to deny literally shielding kids with their bodies because they cannot carry. The brainwashing against guns is so strong amongst teachers that they cannot apply the simplest of lessons.
To highlight how obvious these wrong steps are, this is on Wikipedia:
A United States Secret Service study concluded that schools were placing false hope in physical security, when they should be paying more attention to the pre-attack behaviors of students. Zero-tolerance policies and metal detectors “are unlikely to be helpful,” the Secret Service researchers found. The researchers focused on questions concerning the reliance on SWAT teams when most attacks are over before police arrive, profiling of students who show warning signs in the absence of a definitive profile, expulsion of students for minor infractions when expulsion is the spark that push some to return to school with a gun, buying software not based on school shooting studies to evaluate threats although killers rarely make direct threats, and reliance on metal detectors and police officers in schools when shooters often make no effort to conceal their weapons.
Even Las Vegas Metro PD learned a lesson from October 1, 2017 and now deploys snipers around major events and has instituted high-angle rifle training. For schools, hope continues to be a plan while Clark County schools are busy groping children and rifling through their bags to find guns that children of white trash and minority kids with shit parents being to school.
Hope is not a plan. Shooters need to be shot down as soon as possible. Only resistance ends these attacks. For example:
20 years on and we have learned nothing.
So the Brady whatever they call themselves now (it started as some variation of "ban handguns") is requesting public records regarding the Second Amendment sanctuary issue. Probably so they can help Sisolak and the hoplopath crowd find some "dirt" to shove preemption repeal down their throats. "Sheriff So-and-So said this...so take away the guns," kind of stuff.
My recommendation: the local counties should play hardball. Deny the requests without reason and make them litigate it. Or refer it all to counsel really quick and claim it's "privileged." Screw them. Use the same tactics against them.
Okay, whatever Brady-tards. Your gun-control god Bloomberg has bribed the legislature and the Democratic Party, which is in total control, has the ability to legislate by fiat. Can we get records and transcripts of the conversations where the crooks in Carson City were bribed in order to get Daddy Bloomberg more gun control? Can we depo Sisolak and his staff to get the details of their conversations to screw us?
Of course not. Citizens don't get to know what tyranny their betters are up to. Do what you will, but remember, the armed man still gets a vote, no matter what laws you pass. History will not look upon any of you kindly. If you want to know how bad you'll look in history, I remind you of what is part of Nevada's official record. Many years from now, you'll look like the evil, stupid, corrupt sons-of-bitches you are. And if the California magazine case is any example, strict scrutiny will doom all of this stuff, forever.
Anonymous sources within LVMPD reported a horrifying incident in Blue Diamond Monday afternoon. Patrol officers arrived at the home in Rhodes Ranch to find a male in his mid-twenties missing four fingers of his left hand. His mother called 911 after hearing her son screaming from the garage where he deliberately cut off the fingers of his left hand using a circular saw. Earlier in the day the man had been testifying in opposition to the gun control bill AB 291, which would ban “rate increasing devices” on semi-automatic firearms.
Officers were able to speak with the man who said he was afraid of his hands being considered a “rate increasing device” as he claimed to be able to rapidly pull the trigger of a firearm to simulate fully automatic fire. He is a fan of several well-known rapid fire shooters like Jerry Miculek and Ed McGivern. A semi-automatic Smith and Wesson MP-15/22 was removed from the home. All of his pants had the belt loops cut off to prevent the technique known as “bump firing,” he told police.

The man’s mother stated the man has a history of mental illness but had not been declared mentally incompetent and was allowed to own firearms. He has no history of suicide attempts or self-harm. Officer did share that the man is well-known at police stations around the valley for asking to “register his hands as deadly weapons” as he claimed to be a “martial arts expert.”
The patient was initially brought to Spring Valley Medical Center, but was transported to UMC where surgeons were trying to reattach his fingers. He is currently on a Legal 2000 mental health 72-hour hold. The officers reported the man told medical staff that he cut off his left fingers because he was right handed and it seemed natural to start with the left hand, but had not considered how he would remove the fingers from his dominant hand.
Captain Warner of Enterprise Area Command declined to make a statement but requested the name of the officers involved. Nevada Carry refuses to release the names of its anonymous sources to protect their identity. Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui, sponsor of AB 291, could also not be reached for comment. Jauregui was quoted in the Reno Gazette-Journal as denying that her bill, which would ban certain guns and increase local restrictions on guns, was "anti-gun" and that she was not an "anti-gun" person.
