Nevada: CCW Legislation Advances in Carson City

Monday, March 11, 2013

Senate Bill 76, introduced by state Senator James Settelmeyer (R-17), passed in the Nevada Senate unanimously on March 4.  Under this bill, a CCW applicant would only have to qualify with one handgun.  Current law requires that CCW applicants qualify with both a semi-automatic pistol and a revolver, should they wish to carry both kinds of handguns.  SB 76 has been referred to the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

Recently introduced Senate Bill 223, sponsored by state Senator Joe Hardy (R-12), would allow an employee of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE), or an employee of a private or public school to carry a concealed firearm on campus and in a vehicle belonging to the educational institution.  Permit holders must notify the president of the branch or facility of the NSHE, or the principal of the school at which they work that they will be a carrying a concealed firearm on school property.  SB 223 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Neither of these bills have been scheduled for a committee hearing at this time.  NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated on the status of this legislation.  In the meantime, please contact members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee (contact information  here) and ask them to support Senate Bill 76.  Please also contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee (contact information here) and ask them to support Senate Bill 223.
