On the previous Thursday, a patient, Richard Plotts, entered the office of his psychiatrist, Lee Silverman, M.D., with his caseworker, Theresa Hunt. Plotts then became very upset and killed Hunt with two shots to her head. While this was happening, Dr. Silverman tried to take cover, drew his handgun, and shot the attacker three times.

According to a recent Nevada Department of Public Safety memo, Louisiana concealed carry permits will no longer be recognized by Nevada because of a 2013 law change that provided for the issuance of lifetime permits in the Sportsman’s Paradise.
