Nevada: Act NOW to Stop Extremist Anti-Gun Bill in Carson City
Posted on March 12, 2013
Senate Bill 82, introduced by the Senate Natural Resources Committee, directly targets lawful hunting by Nevadans. This bill would classify the black bear as a “protected mammal” and would prohibit the Board of Wildlife Commissioners from authorizing the hunting of black bears.
Senate Bill 76, introduced by state Senator James Settelmeyer (R-17), passed in the Nevada Senate unanimously on March 4. Under this bill, a CCW applicant would only have to qualify with one handgun. Current law requires that CCW applicants qualify with both a semi-automatic pistol and a revolver, should they wish to carry both kinds of handguns. SB 76 has been referred to the Assembly Judiciary Committee.
