A gunman intimidated patrons Sunday at a Nevada library hosting Drag Queen Story Time. A man with an armed rifle interrupted the event at the library in Sparks, where children had assembled to enjoy reading.Before the panic, local drag queen Miss Ginger Devine read to children at the Washoe County Library System’s Sparks location while Proud Boys members protested.Wearing the militia’s colors of yellow and black, the group carried placards that read, “Stop sexualizing children!

Shame on you for trading your kids just to look ‘woke.’ Woke is broke.”After 11:30 a.m., the Sparks Police Department was made aware of a protest outside the library where someone claimed to have been assaulted, according to a statement to The Advocate.

The alleged victim declined to file charges, so the police did not pursue the matter further, the statement said.Less than two hours later, police received a call about an armed person at the same location. “Sparks Police arrived on scene and contacted the reporting person,” a spokesperson for the department wrote. “The reporting person stated the subject with the gun had left prior to officers’ arrival.”Officers determined the gun owner held the weapon lawfully and did not threaten anyone.
