Security guard shoots gunman inside North Las Vegas 7-Eleven
A confrontation on Sunday night might have led to a deadly shooting this morning at a North Las Vegas convenience store, News 3 has learned. The gunman’s family has identified him as 19-year-old Geraldo Moncayo. Fabiola Grajeda says one bad decision may have cost her cousin his life. “He had an argument last night with the clerks from 7-Eleven, and they got in a fight. One of the guys from 7- Eleven knocked his teeth out and really beat him. He had to go to the hospital,” Grajeda said. Just before 5 a.m. Monday, Grajeda says Moncayo went back to the 7-Eleven on Lake Mead and Pecos. “He came back with one of his friends, and they say he started shooting up to the ceiling,” she explained.

Oregon: Vote Rescheduled on Anti-Hunting Amendment
On Thursday, May 25, the Oregon Senate Committee on Environment and Natural Resources will be voting on House Bill 2525A and its amendments.  This bill was originally scheduled for a hearing last week, but it was pulled from the agenda and rescheduled.  Sponsored by state Representative Knute Buehler (R-54), HB 2525A would modify the requirements for game meat to be donated to charitable organizations.  The NRA applauds such programs, as it is another way for hunters to contribute to the needy in their communities by providing them access to lean, nutritious game meat at minimal cost to the charitable organization.  In addition, it ensures that game meat obtained through wildlife management culls and seized by law enforcement from poachers is not wasted.
