RENO, Nev. (AP) — A deadly shooting rampage at a Carson City IHOP restaurant is prompting a call for a review of Nevada's gun laws.
Assembly Judiciary Committee Chairman William Horne says it would appropriate for lawmakers to consider changes to the state's gun laws after a mentally ill man shot 11 people with an assault weapon last month at the IHOP, leaving five dead.
Horne says while he's a gun owner who supports gun rights, he questions why citizens need to own an assault weapon.
Among those opposing the sale of assault rifles to civilians is Nevada National Guard Sgt. Caitlin Kelley, who was seriously injured by Eduardo Sencion in the rampage.
But National Rifle Association officials say guns are not the problem, and the problem is with the people using them.
