NV: Time for Nevada to put tracer ammunition in its crosshairs

Tracer ammunition was developed so that soldiers could more effectively kill enemy combatants at night and over long distances. It was later was found useful in air warfare, where it helped pilots see the trajectories of the bullets fired from their planes.

So what need would there be for civilians to have tracer bullets?

There isn’t one, which is why some Americans may have been surprised by last week’s news that Stephen Paddock legally bought hundreds of rounds of tracer ammo before the Oct. 1 shooting.

"But it’s equally easy to see how the stuff can be devastatingly dangerous in the wrong hands."

So, keep it out of the wrong hands, and leave the rest of us the hell alone.

"Tracers work in both directions," ~~Old military saying.
Tracers are most useful in belt fed crew served machineguns, allowing the operator to walk the fire into a precise area where he identifies an enemy position.
They also allow an enemy to observe where incoming fire is coming from.
I don't know if the Mandalay shooter used tracer rounds....I do know that if he had used them the authorities would likely have had an easier time locating Steven Paddock's position.

Ban away, fools.
