Three Pro-Gun Bills Pending in Nevada Legislature!

Friday, April 27, 2007

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!


Three important pieces of pro-gun legislation are progressing through the Nevada Legislature.  Senate Bill 237 authored by State Senators Warren Hardy (R-12) and John Lee (D-1), Senate Bill 92 sponsored by Senator Lee, and Assembly Bill 95 introduced by Assemblywoman Valerie Weber (R-5), all passed out of their respective houses in time to beat the Tuesday, April 24 crossover deadline.  Bills failing to pass out of their respective houses prior to the deadline are considered dead for the balance of the legislative session.

 

SB 237, the long-awaited Right-to-Carry reciprocity bill, passed the Senate by a 20-1 margin and is now on its way to the Assembly Judiciary Committee, where it faces its toughest battle.  The Assembly Judiciary Committee has killed every reciprocity measure brought before it.

 

SB 92, a measure that would significantly improve the pro-gun climate in Clark County by eliminating the immediate handgun registration mandate that currently exists, passed the full Senate by a vote of 20-1.  It now moves to the Assembly Government Affairs Committee, which is chaired by pro-gun Democrat Marilyn Kirkpatrick. 

 

Assembly Bill 95, the Emergency Powers Protection Act, would restrict a government entity from confiscating firearms in a declared state of emergency, unanimously passed on a 42-0 vote on the Assembly Floor.  This bill now heads to the Senate Government Affairs Committee where it is likely to receive a favorable response. 

 

It is extremely important that you continue to contact your State Legislators on behalf of these important bills.  The full text of SB 237, SB 92, and AB 95, as well as contact information for the members of the Senate and Assembly Government Affairs Committee and the Assembly Judiciary Committee, can be found online by visiting www.leg.state.nv.us.  

 

You may also post your opinion regarding these bills on the Legislature’s Home Page under "Share Your Opinion."
