Green Valley Library Gun Scare

The LVRJ reported a gun scare during voting today at the Green Valley Library polling place. A false report by a juvenile lead to a response from Henderson Police, who patted down the alleged gunman who ended up not to be carrying.

Nevada law does not prohibit open carry in most public buildings, including a public library. Concealed carry is still illegal where signs are posted, as they are at the Henderson library district.

With the limited information on the circumstances reported, this seems to be a case of gun fear. Many wrongly have the idea that the right to keep and bear arms and the protections of Nevada law end at the library doors. They do not.
