Nicolas Anthony – Overview of Nevada Law Relating to Firearms

John Griffin, National Center for State Legislatures

Lindsay Nichols – Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence

Julie Butler – Department of Public Safety, Records and Technology Division

Please contact Senator Segerblom IMMEDIATELY and ask him why gun rights groups were excluded from participating in tomorrow’s hearing.  You can call Senator Segerblom at (775) 684-1422 or e-mail him at
