We were first introduced to Detective Gordon Martines, of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, at a Crossroads of the West gun show. Det. Martines was there discussing personal gun rights as well as informing the public of his campaign to run for Sheriff of Clark County Nevada in the upcoming elections.
We later contacted Det. Martines and asked if he could spare some time to talk with us about some of the issues facing local gun owners. We then asked for questions from members of our own as well as other forums and presented those questions during our interview.
Understanding that there are other questions that our readers may be interested in asking, Det. Martines has agreed to take part in an open discussion by answering your additional questions. Please feel free to post your questions in the comments section for him to review and address. I would like state that Det. Martines is being very supportive of our efforts with 702Shooter.com and as such I ask that you be polite and respectful with your interactions. That’s not to say that you should avoid “tough questions”, simply be nice in how you respond. This is not an open invitation or platform for a debate, rather a friendly Q&A session.
