Rallies and protests that began earlier this year have continued taking place in Nevada’s capital city since the election, and some citizens continue to show up carrying firearms. But what is the legality of these actions? Where do well-established open and concealed carry rights give way to legally questionable militia activity and intimidation?
In October, This Is Reno published a story about the increasing prevalence of armed militia groups in the state following the release of a report done in collaboration between national nonprofit Political Research Associates and local progressive groups Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada and Indivisible Northern Nevada.
