((patrick walker)) payday loans are largely unregulated at the federal level. that means businesses like this one behind me... take their orders from the states in which they operate. in nevada... treasurer dan schwartz wants to see tighter regulations. those include a statewide database that prevents people from borrowing too much at any one time -- 25 percent of their annual income. also... interest rate caps and cooling

table. the final details of the bill... schwartz says... are still being worked out. ((dan schwartz/(r) state treasurer: "i would say almost with certainty you will see a bill from the state treasurer's office (.58), what the legislature does with it is of course up to them, and whether the governor signs it is up to him." )) ((patrick walker)) nevada ranks 49th out of 50 states when it comes to how much its citizens know about personal finances. schwartz is also proposing to add financial literacy as part of the curriculum at the middle school or high school level. working on a bill for the upcoming session. and at least one lawmaker has also filed a payday lender reform bill. i'm patrick walker... 8 news now.

presidential nominee: "hillary wants to abolish -- essentially abolish the second amendment. by the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. although the second amendment people, maybe there is, i don't know," )) ((dave courvoisier)) >> review-journal columnist and politics-now co-host steve sebelius is here with more about this controversy. steve? ((steve sebelius)) >> this certainly isn't the first time we've heard a stray a little far afield when it comes to loose talk about violence. who could forget republican u-s senate candidate sharron angle's remark to radio host lars larson during her 2010 campaign against harry reid? ((you know, our founding fathers, they put that second amendment in there for a good reason and that was for the people to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. and in fact thomas jefferson said it's good for a country to have a
6:06 pm
we're going, but, you know, if this congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those second amendment remedies and saying my goodness what can we do to turn this country around? i'll tell you the first thing we need to do is take harry reid out. )) ((steve sebelius)) >> angle lost that race, by the way. now, like trump, angle didn't call directly for going out and actually shooting someone. there are people who do -- new al baldasaro -- who said last month clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason. trump's campaign distanced himself from that comment. but the clear implication of angle's words, and now trump's, is violence. how do i know? well, consider the 2014 standoff between rancher cliven bundy and the bureau of land management near bunkerville. after fighting the feds for 20 years in federal court, the b-l-m moved in to seize cattle bundy was illegally grazing on
6:07 pm
the agency and ultimately called for a range war. and we all know what happened after that. several people who participated in that armed standoff, including cliven bundy himself, are in jail today awaiting trial on charges stemming from that incident. and unfortunately, it didn't end in bunkerville. earlier this year, armed protesters -- including some members of the bundy family -- took over a wildlife refuge in oregon. during the standoff, one of the protesters, robert "la voy" finicum, ran a police roadblock, officer with his truck and was shot to death when he reached repeatedly for a coat pocket, inside of which was a 9mm pistol. what began as mere anti-federal words ended with blood on the oregon snow. ((steve sebelius)) and if anybody in the world should understand this, it's trump. back in june, 19-year-old briton michael sanford was arrested after he tried to grab a police officer's sidearm and shoot the candidate during a trump rally at the treasure island. sanford was quickly taken into custody.
6:08 pm
people out there who stand ready to engage in violence, who we shouldn't encourage in any way. at the very least, out of respect for the men and women of the united states secret service who come to work every day to protect presidential candidates from harm, trump ought to seriously reconsider and rein in his rhetoric. ((dave courvoisier)) we're your local election headquarters... stay up to date on all things politics on air and online at las vegas now dot com./// ((christianne klein)) the natural beauty of las vegas... is drawing in a new type of tourist. it'st though... the local joints you can hit up... to get a taste of the outdoors./// news music voice over: "you're watching the valley's news
