WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gun-maker Colt is suspending its production of rifles for the civilian market including the popular AR-15, the company said Thursday in a shift it attributed to changes in consumer demand and a market already saturated with similar weapons.

The company said it will focus instead on fulfilling contracts with military and police customers for rifles.

The parents of a young woman killed in the 2017 Las Vegas massacre filed a wrongful death lawsuit in July against Colt and seven other gun manufacturers, along with gun shops in Nevada and Utah, arguing their weapons are designed to be easily modified to fire like automatic weapons. ... Read More

Sword & Shield: Raiders head to Minneapolis

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Raiders are heading off to Minneapolis for a Sunday morning kickoff with the Vikings. They’ll head off on the road with one of the best running backs through two weeks of play.

Vikings run defense is a little soft so rookie running back Josh Jacobs could end up being the biggest key to the game. He’s certainly a hard runner and very skilled.

“They try to bully him and things like that and he consistently runs his tail off, runs through people, runs forward, picks up blitzes, catches the ball out of the backfield,” said quarterback Derek Carr.

The Raiders pass defense will have to play better. Minnesota has a tendency to throw the deep balls and the Raiders got burned last week... Read More
