The no shooting areas in Clark County have grown. On Wednesday, October 2, the county commissioners voted for an expansion in three areas (agenda link).
Commissioner Justin Jones who lives in the southwest was the sponsor and reported shooters firing too close to homes in that area for comfort. Lovell Canyon was shut down by the Forest Service several years ago after a brushfire blamed on shooters and years of trash shooting dangerously close to the road.
NO OTHER AREAS were made off limits. See the Shooting page for more info on existing prohibited areas in Clark County.
State preemption laws allow local authorities to regulate unsafe discharge of firearms.
All in all, this is a minor expansion and for mostly legitimate reasons. It is a reminder to all shooters to be safe, pack out their trash, and encourage good behavior from others.
