RENO (KRNV – Sources tell News 4 that embattled Assemblyman Steven Brooks attempted to purchase a firearm from a sporting goods store in the Reno-Sparks area Thursday.

The source add that Brooks’ purchase of the firearm was denied.

News 4 has also learned Brooks, D-North Las Vegas, now has at least a temporary residence in Washoe County. It appears that Brooks has taken this residence in Washoe County to avoid being close to other lawmakers that have court-ordered restraining orders against the Assemblyman.
