Nevada: Legislative Interim Committee to Take on "Assault Weapons"

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

On Tuesday, August 28, the state Advisory Commission on the Administration of Justice (also called a legislative interim committee) will be holding a public hearing to discuss a number of issues, one of which will be so-called "Assault Weapons."  (For more information on the often abused term “Assault Weapons,” please click here.)  This legislative interim committee, led by Assembly Judiciary Committee Chairman William Horne (D-34), will be holding its hearing at 9:00 a.m. on August 28 in Carson City.  This commission will not be taking public comment, but has invited a representative of the NRA to speak, along with members of the law enforcement community and the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence based out of San Francisco.

The NRA has been informed by Assembly Judiciary Committee staff that this is merely an informational hearing and that "Assault Weapons" will be the third issue on their agenda, with each presenter having no more than 15-20 minutes to speak.  This commission hearing will be held in Room 3137 of the Legislative Building and video-conferenced to room 4412 of the Grant Sawyer State Office Building in Las Vegas.  Their agenda has yet to be posted on the legislative website, but please continue to check here for updates.  Additionally, a list of the commission members can be found by clicking here.

It is very important that those who influence policy for gun owners in Nevada know that law-abiding gun owners are paying attention.  Please attend this hearing and contact Chairman William Horne to politely remind him that Nevada does not need another failed gun control experiment.  Chairman Horne may be reached via e-mail at whorne@asm.state.nv.us, or by phone at (702) 457-6963. Thank you!
