You don't have to be Annie Oakley to pack a pistol.  That's what photographer Lindsay McCrum found out, when she started snapping portraits of female gunowners.  The resulting book, "Chicks with Guns," show women from all walks of life, owning every sort of steel from semi-automatics to long-range rifles.  From a bride holding a pistol against her white satin, to a single mother with a Glock, to a Texas beauty queen with a 20-gauge, the stereotypical ideas of who owns a gun are changing.  We talk with Lindsay McCrum about her art, and two local female gun owners on the appeal of firearms.

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada lawmakers are reviewing a bill that would have an appointed panel redraw voting districts instead of the Legislature.

Republican Assemblyman Lynn Stewart presented AB 252 on Thursday to the Assembly Legislative Operations and Elections Committee.

The bill would create a five-person commission to present redistricting options to the Legislature the year after a census.  Majority and minority parties would appoint four members and the state's chief justice would appoint the fifth.

The Legislature would be able to change or discard the commission's recommended districts. Commission members wouldn't be allowed to run for state or local office for five years after approval.

 Democratic Assemblyman Elliot Anderson said he was concerned the proposal could draw the state Supreme Court into a redistricting process that's ended with court action in the past.
