Nevada State Assemblyman Steven Brooks Arrested

The Huffington Post reports
A Nevada lawmaker was arrested on Saturday night for threatening to shoot a colleague.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, State Assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested with a loaded gun. He had threatened to shoot Speaker-elect Marilyn Kirkpatrick. He was apparently unhappy with his committee assignments.

He spent the night in custody.

Brooks is a Democratic assemblyman who represents North Las Vegas. He was first elected in 2010.

As the Sun reported, the Nevada State Assembly recently experienced a shakeup after its previous speaker had lost his bid for reelection. The Democratic caucus was split between Kirkpatrick and another official. Brooks had reportedly been seeking the spot of chairman of the Assembly's Ways and Means Committee, but the position went to another lawmaker. 

What do you think of that, a black Democrat threatening to shoot people?

Please leave a comment.


  1. Let's employ the typical "reasoning" used by gun control freaks: We have one example, so we should ban blacks, Democrats, and elected representatives from making decisions about guns.

    With regard to the latter two groups, that's not actually a bad idea...

  2. Well since he is not old, white, and flabby he is not a gun loon right?

  3. He's also anti gun you forgot that park Mike.

  4. Anti-gun Democrat lawmaker arrested for threatening to shoot, kill Nevada Speaker.

  5. Or the convicted felon Democrat legislator in the Virginia state house who brandished an AK-47 with his thumb in the trigger guard. But like David Gregory who broke Washington D.C.'s gun law about high capacity magazines, will probably get a pass. You see, the law is just for the "little people."

  6. I don't know where you get that he's anti-gun. He had one and threatened to kill someone with it, sounds like one of you lot.

  7. He's bin proven to be anti gun, just like most gun grabbers he has a gun just because he owns one. DOUSE NOT make him one of us if he wants to ban them or even "Assault" rifles he's one of you. Just like Fianstainwants gun bans and she owns one she's one of you.
