Please Contact the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee Today!
On Wednesday, March 14, Senate Bill 92, introduced by State Senator John Lee (D-Clark 1), will be heard in the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee.
This bill seeks to remove the grandfather clause from the 1989 Firearms Preemption Law that allowed Clark County to keep, among other local laws, their handgun registration ordinances, which mandated that anyone entering Clark County must register their handguns with local law enforcement within 24 hours.
SB92 would create a uniform standard for firearms laws statewide and elliminate the patchwork set of laws that now exist.
It is vital that NRA members contact the members of the committee or appear at the hearing to voice strong support for this measure. The hearing will be held at 1:30 p.m. in Room 2149 of the Legislative Building in Carson City or the Grant Sawyer Building in Las Vegas via satellite feed. Also, please contact Senator John Lee to thank him for his leadership. Contact information for the committee members is below.
