Nevada Assemblyman Brooks is denied access to firearms for one year

Source: Las Vegas Sun

Assemblyman Steven Brooks, D-North Las Vegas, has been placed on a federal list prohibiting him from buying a firearm for one year, a state public safety official confirmed Monday.

Brooks attempted to buy a rifle at a Sparks sporting goods store Friday, sparking a criminal background check required for gun purchases.

... Brooks has been arrested twice in the past two months, once on allegations he threatened Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, D-North Las Vegas, and once on allegations of domestic battery. He also was detained for a psychiatric evaluation last month following a domestic disturbance with a sword.

Brooks is on paid leave from the Assembly and has been banned from entering the Legislative Building. The Assembly has also convened a select committee to determine whether Brooks is fit to continue serving in the Legislature.

1. Domestic disturbance with a sword?

plus two serious allegations against him in the past two months? I'm glad he's been prohibited from buying a gun, and disturbed to consider he can probably easily get one through other means.

2. What about guns and ammo he already OWNS?

Too bad so sad for whomever he decides he wants to shoot I guess.
