LA Times (use reader mode to get around the paywall)
The LA Times did an article on open carry at polling places. Nevada's attorney general, Aaron Ford, actually said that open carry wasn't illegal at a polling place.
The right to carry firearms and the right to vote without fear of intimidation “are concurrent rights that can operate simultaneously and in fact, do operate simultaneously here in our state,” Nevada Atty. Gen. Aaron Ford, a Democrat, said on a press call this month.
I'm actually surprised at how even-handed he is. There's a lot that could be said by my personal theory is this: Democrats know Nevada is still purple and are trying their best to appear level-headed and not go full retard. If they go full retard, they will get stung with the backlash.
Until Nevada is solidly blue and the demographics have changed enough (with other parts of the political landscape) they can't simply do what they want. All of that depends on elections. Eventually, immigration and migration from California will turn Nevada blue and most other red states purple.
So while the tide has turned against us, at least Nevada's top cop is telling the truth and isn't calling for a ban. The attempt to repeal preemption in 2020 will be another story.
