APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Help Support Vital Second Amendment Legislation in the State of Nevada!

Friday, January 12, 2007

 

Currently, it's illegal to own or possess a handgun in Clark County, Nevada, unless it's registered with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. 

 

This means that if you have a Nevada right to carry permit from any other county outside of Clark County, your pistol must be registered in Clark County if you are there more than one day.  Even if you come to Clark County to participate in a pistol-shooting event or gun show that lasts more than one day, your pistol must be registered with the sheriff of Clark County.

 

The Nevada Revised Statutes (244.364) establishes a uniform state law for all firearms in the state of Nevada.  However, when the law was passed in 1989,

Clark County was "grandfathered," which means that any and all local ordinances governing firearms before the law went into effect were allowed to stand.  Of those local ordinances, and there are a handful, the most onerous by far are the two firearm registration ordinances within the County Code (Ordinances Title 12, Chapter 12.04 Firearm and Air guns).

 

*    12.04.110 - "Any person receiving title to a pistol, whether by purchase, gift, or any other transfer, and whether from a dealer or from any other person, shall, within twenty-four hours of such receipt, personally appear at the county sheriff's office, together with the pistol, for the purpose of registering the same with the sheriff..."

 

*    12.04.200 - "It is unlawful for any person to own or have in his possession, within the unincorporated area of Clark County a gun, pistol, revolver, or any other firearm capable of being concealed, unless the same has first been registered with the sheriff or with a police department of any of the incorporated cities of Clark County."

 

State Senator John Lee (D-Clark County) is introducing legislation in the 2007 Session (BDR S-45) that will eliminate this "grandfather clause" from the State Firearms Preemption Law.  This will remove the patchwork of local gun laws and protect law-abiding Nevada gun owners from inadvertently becoming criminals.

 

It is vital that NRA members communicate with their legislators prior to the session start date of February 5, while they are still in the districts, and ask them to join Senator Lee and co-author this very important piece of legislation.  BDR S-45 has yet to be assigned a bill number, but when it does go to print, it would send a strong message of support to Senator Lee if it had your legislator's name attached as a co-author.

 

Thank you for your support!
