Sheriff’s Message, Week of November 6th
We are happy to report that there were no known issues throughout the county on Election Day. Additionally, there has been no active protesting in our county, unlike the urban cities portraying actions of a third world country. While many of you are glad the election is over, its aftermath began the day after. Our phones blew up with individuals wanting to know about the law and marijuana licenses. One person even wanted his marijuana and pipe back, now that it is legal. He did not get it back.
On January 1st, anyone 21 years of age or older can legally smoke or consume marijuana. Lyon County is now mandated to have at least two retail marijuana stores, and every residence in the county, including the cities of Fernley and Yerington can grow up to 12 plants unless they are within 25 miles of a retail marijuana store. There are some restrictions on growing marijuana at the home, so growers will have to read the law to ensure compliance.
The LCSO will be advocates for retail stores to cover the entire populated county so no one can grow in the home under the 25 mile rule, thus forcing all users to purchase government over-sighted marijuana. Oops, guess some of those people should have read the entire law before voting for it. We will also reaffirm our work place policy prohibiting marijuana use. Under the new law, ALL employers may establish a similar policy prohibiting employees from using marijuana. Oops, more of those voters didn’t read that part either. So for those unemployed non-users, or non-users seeking a better job, higher pay and better benefits, be patient because new job opportunities may be available after January 1st.
We began staffing a marijuana transition policy for our deputies this week. We need legislators to enhance NRS 484B.150, the open alcohol container in a vehicle law, to include marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia. The new law is extremely vague and weak on driving and using, and should include vehicle passengers. It will be illegal to smoke or consume marijuana in public places. We will write the $600 ticket for each violation seen, and we will do the best we can when we catch those under 21 with marijuana, marijuana concentrates (edibles) and marijuana paraphernalia.
The gun background check law also go into effect on January 1st. This is a very confusing and poorly written law even for us. I won’t tell you the loop holes in how to bypass this new law, which there are many. Expect in the near future another ballot proposal similar to California’s Prop 63 that just passed, aimed at closing these loop holes. This is how the anti-2nd Amendment groups chip away at our Bill of Rights, and sadly, many sheep continue to follow along. Nonetheless, to be safe, if you sell your gun to someone outside of your immediate family, have the sale go through a FFL dealer. The LCSO is not going to put much emphasis or resources into enforcement of this expanded law. We have other priorities.
And finally on a positive note, we did graduate Deputies Johnson and Greenhut from the Category I POST Academy after 16 weeks of training. They now begin their patrol training, another 12 weeks of training before they can work by themselves. Congratulations to both!
As always, keep the faith.

On December 23, a home invader burst through a door in Memphis, Tennessee, and put a gun to a woman’s neck. He was then shot multiple times and killed.
According to WREG, 22-year-old Nico Carlisle and another suspect knocked on a door on the “2300 block of Devoy” around 6 p.m. When a woman went to the door, the two suspects forced their way into the house, and Carlisle put a gun to the woman’s neck.
At that point, the homeowner emerged–gun in hand–and shot Carlisle multiple times. Police arrived, found Carlisle “laying at the front door,” and pronounced him dead at the scene. The second suspect escaped and has yet to be identified.
A neighbor who witnessed the events unfold said he saw “some boys go over there next door, you know, trying to get up in their house.” He walked to his own door for a clearer view, and “that’s when [he] heard some shots.”

Our right to own guns may be gone if President Obama gets a second term. He has been working under the radar to take our firearms away.
1. Fast and Furious. Holder tried to make it look like American Guns were illegally falling into the Cartels hands and make a case against American Guns but he only had Mexicans and Americans Killed.
2. Ban on our M! rifles being returned from Korea.
3. Using EPA and Osha to shut down shooting areas for air quality and land contamination.
4. If elected he most likely will be in the position to appoint two if not three new Supreme Court Justices who will be liberal and along with Kagen and Sotomayor will intemperate the 2nd Amendment to mean something else.
5. Use health care to ban shooting as harmful.
6. Side with the United Nations to ban small arms.
He has already bypassed Congress with immigration and Health care, we have no one willing to standup for what is right. The people we have elected are spineless and gutless.
Wake up America.
Gun sales are up over the last 3 years.
With the rise in crime and the slow response in 911 calls gun sales are up. What is even more interesting is that sales to women have increased more than 900 percent in the last 5 years.
Concealed weapon permits have more than tripled in the past 2 years. Where are the training schools?
Most CCW classes provide training on the legal issues of carrying concealed. All one has to do to pass the test is hit the target. No training is given at this lever.
Nevada Gun Rental, Reno Gun Rental and Nevada Recreation fills this void.
Nevada Recreation inc, rents guns. We also provide full training in firearm maintenance, basic firearms handling to advance firearm handling, defensive shooting, long distance shooting and selecting of firearm that is right for you.
Only purchase a gun and carry one if you are committed to using it. If not, a gun for defense is not for you.
