also reportedly broke out at college campuses in oregon, pennsylvania, and washington. social media chatter and local activist groups say it is likely several anti-trump rallies will also be held tonight across the country. be held tonight across the country. this election clearly has a lot of people emotional... especially some of our young voters. a big reason for that is because minority rights have been front and center. from muslims, to women, to the hispanic population... all over the u-s people were holding thr breath...anxious for the outcome of this election and what it could mean for minorities. fox5's kathleen jacob joins us live after spending the day at unlv... one of the most diverse college campuses in the country... kathleen what was the mood like? well cyndi, john, it was very weird on campus today. i talked to students from all different backgrounds and on both sides of the political spectrum. they all say campus was kind of quiet... almost somber.. but at the same time there was a hopeful feeling that everyone is going
and be better for it. it's really silent on campus. i feel like everyone has mixed emotions. i'm feeling relieved. i think that this is the change we needed. it shouldn't be a day we should give up. it should be more we have to fight more for our rights. i think the main thing to focus on our families, show the people we care about love and respect and kindness. it was a day of reflection for many students at unlv. people are worried, some people are super excited and happy, i think it really just depends on how you view the situation and you know what at the end of the day all we can do is move forward and hope for the best. students from all different backgrounds had different perspectives on how to view this election. from hope... we still have our rights, we can still fight for what we believe in. to fear.. shock, disappointment, fear, i'm definitely
decent. i don't know what's gonna happen. the one thing everyone could agree on.. is that now is the time to come together. i feel like the whole thing was really difficult for a lot of us. i feel that even though maybe some of us don't agree with what happened now or maybe some of us do, just like i was saying we have to move on. see what happens, give him a chance. there's nothing else we really can do anymore. i think as america grows, i don't think we're through, and i'm happy that we're not through it because that means that we'll constantly be evolving and that's kinf of the mindset that you have to have. all of the students seemed to agree that with how diverse unlv is... they'll handle whatever change is thrown their way. we also reached out to diversity professors to get their perspective on what's to come and they tell us.... reporting live...kathleen jacob...fox5 news... local. las vegas. thanks kathleen.. always good to see people coming together and looking forward to the future.
voters approved legalizing recreational marijuana... but there are still some questions surrounding question two. fox5's eric hilt is in studio with what's next when it comes to pot in nevada. the next step is that possession of up to an ounce of marijuana will be legal starting january 1. but you won't be able to legally buy it in nevada until a whole set of regulations and rules are set up for the brand new industry... some of those rules are already set... driving under the influence will still be illegal, and if you apartment or work has rules against drugs or smoking those still apply. lawyers tell me over the next few weeks and months lawmakers will start hammering out additional rules about how dispensaries will sell marijuana... and the final say on those gots to the nevada department of taxation "every specific is going to be addresses, all the t's crossed, the i's dotted, they have to run it through the whole process from seed to sale essentially. i've helped companies with medical cannibis regulations and those were highly
detailed, you have to lay out exactly every step of the way." those regulations have to be in place before january of 2018 -- and after they are in, dispensaries can apply for licenses to sell recreational pot -- a process that could take another 6 to 12 months according to lawyers. to put that in context -- colorado legalized pot in 2012 and the first coming up at 5 hear how dispensaries are reacting to the new law... and what the next reacting to the new law... and what the next steps are for them. after last night's results-- recreational marijuana is now legal in california...massac husettes...and nevada. medical marijuana is now legal in north dakota... arkansas....and florida. nevada voters said "yes" to question one on the ballot yesterday. it deals with closing "loopholes" in the background
purchasing firearms. fox5's adam herbets joins us live at "the gun store" to tell us more. well john cindy question one passed by less than half a percent yesterday and one of the reasons at least the people here will tell you is because number one it's so complex and it sounds like a good idea on the outside until you look at the details they expected this place to be packed today because everyone thought that hillary clinton would be the next president and i would promote more gun sales obviously that didn't happen but now they're dealing with a different type of question how people are going to get by when question one takes effect (nats calk shotgun) (nats firing) (nats bullet dropping) a lot of people who run gun stores -- like the gun store -- will
country... but bad for business. (nats) either way, they'll take it. 55:58 wow. great. we kept the senate. we kept the house. but republicans like bob irwin also know -- nevada elected more democrats... and passed question one, which will increase background checks. 2:40 i think they're a great idea. nobody in this industry wants to sell guns to a criminal or someone who beats his wife. but he says... the law isn't that simple. 20:56 we can either decide to violate federal law or violate state law. pick one! i get to decide which agency puts me in jail. haha. the reality is that background checks save lives. 48% officers (nats) al salinas... a retired deputy chief... says some his coworkers might still be alive if this was passed sooner. bob -- thinks its a scare tactic.
need guns for self defense, we're keeping thousands of them from getting one. that is not a good trade off for public safety. it's a political bull stunt. 2:10 - 2:19 what the bill is going to cause is more people to not get background checks. the background checks should be free. thats why he thinks crime will go up because of all of this... and it will be way tougher and more expensive to buy a gun from a private person... the exchange will have to be done at a gun store. they'll have to pay the sales tax and for the background check, and they'll days. 3:30 we're going to create thousands of criminals who weren't criminals before and it's only because they're poor. so this thing does not take affect today it doesn't even take affect on january 1 according to the people we talk to bob or when were you just heard from is the guy who owns this place as this will have to go to the legislators in
an actual bill with everything that was agreed upon at the actual ballot box then the governor will have to sign it and then it will take a fact but he also says he thinks the governor will try and veto it mohave county police say human remains have been found in the desewrt off interstate 40. take a look at this map here. police say the remains were found monday morning about a convenience store. deputies responded to the area after an anonymous tip was made. police say there was no identification near the bones. but they did find some clothing and a bike nearby. police were not able to identify the sex of the remains because they were so decomposed. a father is behind bars today after his 8-year-old daughter was shot. 31-year-old zachary cory is facing child abuse and neglect charges. police say a gun went off in the family's home-- and a bullet hit the girl.
