Nevada: Two Major Pro-Gun Bills Lead the Pack in Carson City

Friday, February 11, 2011

Two pro-gun bills have been assigned to committee in Nevada.  Senate Bill 126 would streamline the Conceal Carry Weapons permit process by allowing an applicant to qualify for a permit for both revolvers and semiautomatic firearms.  Assembly Bill 8 would allow law-abiding citizens the right to self-defense in their homes.

Under existing law, a person applying for a permit to carry a firearm in a concealed manner is required to list on an application each specific semiautomatic firearm to which the permit will pertain but may receive a permit for all revolvers owned by the person without listing each revolver specifically.  Sponsored by state Senator James Settelmeyer (R-Capital), Senate Bill 126 would revise this provision to allow a person to complete one application and obtain one permit to carry in concealment all firearms owned by the person.  The application must specify whether it pertains to revolvers, semiautomatic firearms or both, and the applicant must demonstrate competence with each category of firearm, as applicable.  SB 126 will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, February 16 at 8:00 a.m. in Room 249. 

Assembly Bill 8, sponsored by state Assemblyman John Hambrick (R-2), is a long-awaited Castle Doctrine measure.  This legislation would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their homes and any places outside of their home where they have a legal right to be.  AB 8 has been assigned to the Assembly Judiciary Committee, but no hearing date has been scheduled.

These are the first two bills out of the gate for what will be a session dominated by pro-firearms issues.  Other pieces of legislation to follow are campus carry, CCW permit confidentiality, license plates celebrating the Second Amendment, out-of-state permit recognition, and lowering the age to obtain a CCW permit to 18 for military police personnel.

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support SB 126.  Also, please contact members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee and ask them to support AB 8.  Contact information for both committees is listed below.
