Nevada: Senator Segerblom Determined to Bring Draconian California Firearms Ban to Nevada and Assemblyman Horne Wants Gun Owner Money

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Gun Bans and Tax Schemes Introduced – Your Action Needed NOW!

Senate Bill 396 was introduced last night by anti-gun Senator Tick Segerblom (D-3), while another anti-gun measure, Assembly Bill 234, has been introduced by Assemblyman William Horne (D-34).   Contact your state legislators IMMEDIATELY and urge them to oppose these assaults on your fundamental right to self-defense. 

Senate Bill 396 is a Feinstein-type gun ban that seeks to effectively eliminate most commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and magazines.  As previously reported by the NRA-ILA, Segerblom has launched an all-out attack on gun owners this session and is determined to take away your rights!  His bill covers the full gamut of anti-gun measures seen across the country lately, including the following:

  • Prohibits the purchase, sale or transfer of commonly owned semi-automatic firearms under the political misnomer “assault weapons”, and makes a violation of any of these provisions a felony.
  • Prohibits the purchase, possession, sale or transfer of “large capacity magazines” – meaning standard capacity magazines capable of holding ten or more rounds.
  • Prohibits the purchase or possession of “metal piercing bullets” which is a clear attack on all ammunition.
  • Criminalizes private transfers of firearms by requiring background checks on firearms transfers unless the person receiving the firearm has a Concealed Carry permit.
  • Prohibits a person convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence from owning firearms.

 

At this time, limited information is available on this bill.  Your NRA-ILA will continue to send updates as details become available. 

Another anti-gun measure, Assembly Bill 234, introduced by Assemblyman Horne, would impose an excise tax on every Nevada firearms dealer who sells firearms or ammunition to consumers within the state.  Dealers will be mandated to charge a $25 tax for every firearm sold and 2 cents for each round of ammunition!  The anti-gun author of this bill is punishing the exercise of a singled-out constitutional right.  While the NRA supports reasonable steps to fix the broken mental health system in our country, singling out law-abiding gun owners in Nevada is NOT the way to achieve this goal.  AB 234 also requires background checks on all private transfers of firearms to non-permit holders and authorizes civil action for failure to run a background check.  Further, this bill outlaws the mere possession of any “metal penetrating bullets” and any ammunition which is considered to be “tracer or incendiary” in nature, making possession of either a gross misdemeanor.  AB 234 has been referred to the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

Your action is needed NOW!  Please contact your state Senator and Assemblyman TODAY, and urge them to oppose SB 396 and AB 234.  You can find your state Senator and Assemblyman and their contact information by clicking here.  You can also submit your opinion on Nevada legislation by clicking here and selecting the appropriate bill number.
