NRA-Supported Bills on the Move in Nevada

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

Assembly Bill 217, introduced by Assemblyman John Ellison (R-33), unanimously passed in the state Senate and is now headed back to the Assembly for enrollment, before being sent to Governor Brian Sandoval for his approval. 

AB 217 would allow residents of non-contiguous states to purchase long guns in Nevada. In addition, it would also allow Nevada residents to purchase long guns in non-contiguous states.  If passed, this legislation 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.  

Also moving forward is Assembly Speaker John Oceguera's (D-16) Assembly Bill 321, which would provide 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.  

AB 321 is expected to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee this Friday, May 6, at 8:00 a.m. in Room 2149.  This is an important self-defense measure that deserves your strong support, so please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask that they support AB 321.  Contact information for this committee can be found below.
