On Tuesday, August 28, the state Advisory Commission on the Administration of Justice (also called a legislative interim committee) will be holding a public hearing to discuss a number of issues, one of which will be so-called "Assault Weapons." (For more information on the often abused term “Assault Weapons,” please click here.) The NRA has just received notice that the committee will be accepting public testimony. Please attend and plan to testify at this important hearing.
This legislative interim committee, led by Assembly Judiciary Committee Chairman William Horne (D-34), will be holding its hearing at 9:00 a.m. on August 28 in Carson City. This commission hearing will be held in Room 3137 of the Legislative Building and video-conferenced to room 4412 of the Grant Sawyer State Office Building in Las Vegas.
The NRA has been informed by Assembly Judiciary Committee staff that "Assault Weapons" will be the third issue on their agenda. This commission has invited a representative of the NRA to speak, along with members of the law enforcement community and the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence based in San Francisco. Each presenter will have no more than 15-20 minutes to speak, while those speaking during the public comment section will be limited to a few minutes each. Please see the legislature’s guidelines to public participation here.
The agenda has yet to be posted on the legislative website, so please continue to check here for updates. Additionally, a list of the commission members can be found by clicking here.
It is very important that those who influence policy for gun owners in Nevada know that law-abiding gun owners are paying attention. Please attend the hearing and plan to speak. Please also contact Chairman William Horne to politely remind him that Nevada does not need another failed gun control experiment.
Chairman Horne may be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (702) 457-6963.
