Nevada: Legislation to Streamline the CCW Permit Process to be Heard <br/> in Senate Committee on Wednesday

Monday, February 14, 2011

Please contact the Senate committee and attend the hearing! 

This Wednesday, February 16, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear Senate Bill 126 at 8:00 a.m. in Room 249.  This legislation would streamline the Conceal Carry Weapons (CCW) permit process by allowing an applicant to qualify for a permit for both revolvers and semiautomatic firearms.  To allow for greater participation, this hearing will be teleconferenced to Room 4412 of the Grant Sawyer Government Building located at 555 East Washington Avenue in Las Vegas.

Under existing law, a person applying for a permit to carry a firearm concealed is required to list on the 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), SB 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. 

Please attend this hearing, either at the Capitol or in Las Vegas, and testify on behalf of SB 126.  If you are unable to attend, please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support SB 126.  Contact information for this committee is listed below.
