Chiefs and Sheriffs Propose 100% Increase in Right-to-Carry Licensing Fees!
PLEASE CONTACT THE MEMBERS OF THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE TODAY!
In a direct assault on Nevada's Right-to-Carry Permit holders, the Nevada Chiefs and Sheriffs Association has sponsored a bill before the 2007 Legislature that would double the maximum fee an issuing authority can charge not only for first time permit applicants, but for the permit renewals as well.
Assembly Bill 21, which will be soon be scheduled for a hearing in the Assembly Judiciary Committee, will raise the current maximum processing application fee from its current $60.00 to $125.00, bringing the average cost of obtaining a permit, with training requirements included, to $300 - 400!
This would create an environment where Nevada's most financially vulnerable, such as single mothers and fathers, or seniors on a fixed income cannot afford the most basic right of self-defense.
It is vital that NRA members, whether permit holders or not, contact their local Sheriffs and members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee to politely voice their concern. The contact information is as follows:
