Contact Your Sheriff Today on Behalf of the Nevada Campus Protection Act

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Please contact your Sheriff and voice your support!

On Thursday, February 17, the Nevada Sheriffs and Chiefs Association will meet to form an opinion on Bill Draft Request 742.  This important legislation would enable Nevada Concealed Firearms Permit holders to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense on college campuses.  State law allows each individual college or university president to determine their respective carry policies, but not one currently allows permit holders to exercise this constitutional right.  Permit holders are among the most law-abiding citizens in the country and we need your Sheriff’s support for BDR 742 to remedy this injustice and restore the right to self-defense on college campuses.

Please contact your Sheriff today and urge him to support BDR 742 at the upcoming February 17th meeting and testify in support when it comes up for a hearing in the Nevada Legislature.  Contact information is listed below.
