After lawmakers in California sent a letter to their counterparts in Nevada asking for a summit aimed at tackling gun violence, legislative leaders in the Silver state remain split on whether to accept the invitation.

The recent mass shootings in Texas, Ohio and California have, once again, raised concerns about gun laws around the country. Case in point: the Gilroy shooting, which left three people dead and a dozen more injured at a festival last month. According to police, the shooter used a semi-automatic rifle, known as a WASR 10, purchased legally at a gun shop in Fallon before it was taken across state lines to California where that firearm is banned.
