Concealed Carry Legislation Advances in Nevada

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

On May 30, Senate Bill 126, introduced by state Senators James Settelmeyer (R-Capitol Senatorial) and John Lee (D-1), passed in the Assembly by a 40-2 vote.  Once this bill is engrossed, it will be transmitted to Governor Brian Sandoval for his approval.

SB 126 would streamline the CCW permit application and qualification process to allow a permit applicant to qualify with any semi-automatic pistol, similar to the current process for any revolver.  

Please contact Governor Sandoval and ask that he sign SB 126 into law.  Governor Sandoval can be reached by e-mail here.

Yesterday, Governor Sandoval signed Assembly Bill 143 into law.  Introduced by state Assemblyman David Bobzien (D-24), AB 143 is similar in nature to SB 126 regarding the use of any semi-automatic pistol and any revolver to qualify for a CCW permit.  AB 143 also ensures that the identity of Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit holders is kept confidential.  

Please contact Governor Sandoval and thank him for signing into law AB 143.  Governor Sandoval can be reached by e-mail here.
