Several Pro-Gun Bills Advance in Nevada

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Several pro-gun bills are on the move in Carson City and they need your support.

Senate Bill 231, the Nevada Campus Protection Act, has been referred to the Committee on Finance.  Introduced by state Senator John Lee (D-1), SB 231 would allow individuals who hold a Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit to carry their firearm on the property of the Nevada System of Higher Education without first gaining permission from the university president, which is currently mandated by statute.  It has been a long-held policy within the campus administration to not allow permit holders to carry, which has created an environment where students, faculty and staff are left defenseless in gun-free zones.  

On April 18, Assembly Bill 217, passed in the Senate Labor and Commerce Committee by a unanimous vote and has now been placed on the General File for a vote in the state Senate.  Introduced by Assemblyman John Ellison (R-33), AB 217 would allow residents of non-contiguous states to purchase long guns in Nevada.  In addition, it would allow Nevada residents to purchase long guns in non-contiguous states.  This would bring Nevada in line with the protections provided by the Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986, which allows the interstate sale of long guns by federally licensed firearms dealers.  

Please contact your state Senator and urge him or her to support SB 231 and AB 217.  For contact information or help identifying your state Senator click here.

Assembly Bill 321 passed in the Assembly on April 26 and now moves to the Senate.  AB 321, sponsored by Assembly Speaker Oceguera (D-16), provides that under the defense of justifiable homicide there is no duty to retreat if the person using deadly force:  1) is not the original aggressor; 2) has a right to be present at the location where deadly force is used; and 3) is not actively engaged in criminal activity at the time deadly force is used.  Your NRA will provide you with more information once this bill is assigned to a committee.

Two measures introduced by Senator Don Gustavson (R-Washoe County, No. 2) are awaiting hearings in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.  Senate Bill 175 would ensure that the names of Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit holders would be confidential and Senate Bill 279 would mandate that a background investigation be conducted on all right-to-carry permit renewals for the re-instatement of the NICS exemption for permit holders.  Both SB 175 and SB 279 passed in the state Senate by a unanimous vote and will be heard soon in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.  Please contact members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support SB 175 and SB 279.  Contact information for this committee can be found below.
