Kevin Miller begins the week by previewing the Democratic Presidential Primary that will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada. He looks at a shocking story involving one presidential candidate. Those attending Bernie Sanders' campaign rally on Sunday afternoon in Carson City, Nevada got quite the show. Topless protesters, claiming to be angered by the dairy industry, stormed the stage as the Vermont Senator spoke, tossing paint, fake blood and water on the podium. Security whisked the women away as the crowd chanted "Bernie! Bernie!," with police later arresting them for indecent exposure."This is Nevada, there's always a little bit of excitement," said Sanders following the incident. Kevin Miller asks the following questions: How concerned are you for the candidates' safety with these kinds of incidents happening? Kevin Miller looks at a situation in Virginia. A push by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to ban assault weapons has failed.Four Democratic State Senators defected and voted to table the bill for one year while the state crime commission studies the issue.The bill would have banned certain semiautomatic weapons, AR-15 styles rifles, and possession of magazines holding more than 12 rounds. Kevin Miller asks the following questions: How would this bill have stopped anybody from killing someone? Do gun restriction advocates focus too much on guns? Do they fail in coming up with ways to actually stop people from carrying out acts of violence?
