Nevada: Pro-Gun Bills to be Heard on Monday

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Several pro-gun measures that would improve Nevada firearm laws will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, March 25 at 9:00 a.m.  Please contact Committee members using the information provided below and urge them to support Senate Bills 226, 137 and 223.

Senate Bill 226, introduced by state Senator James Settelmeyer (R-17), seeks to make Nevada gun laws uniform by removing previously "grandfathered" local gun control ordinances and reserving firearm regulation with the state legislature.  Currently there are varying local ordinances including Clark County’s gun registration program and North Las Vegas’ ban on firearms in cars.  SB 226 will unite the laws and avoid the potential for a person becoming a criminal by simply passing through the locality.  SB 226 looks to provide further uniformity by eliminating the 17 various county-issued permit cards and placing a single designation on a permit holder’s driver’s license.  A person may choose to get a separate identification card without the designation for banking or other privacy purposes.  Missouri has been doing it this way for more than a decade with no issues.

Individuals who possess a valid CCW on January 1, 2014 would be required to comply with the new provisions no later than the date on which their current driver’s license or identification card expire.  The only fees required are the normal DMV fees for new issuance and/or renewal.  SB 226 would also remove the current distinction between revolvers and semi-automatics by labeling all handguns as such. 

Senate Bill 137, introduced by state Senator Donald Gustavson (R-02) would make improvements to Nevada’s current concealed carry laws.  Existing law prohibits a person from carrying certain concealed weapons, including firearms, without a permit.  SB 137 removes firearms from the list of weapons which a person is prohibited from carrying concealed and repeals the provision which requires a person to have a permit to carry a concealed firearm.  SB 137 also seeks uniformity with Nevada gun laws by eliminating various local ordinances including Clark County’s registration program.

Senate Bill 223, introduced by state Senator Joseph Hardy (R-12), would allow employees of the Nevada System of Higher Education or a private or public school who hold permits to carry concealed firearms on school property under certain circumstances.

Additionally, Assembly Bill 340, introduced by Assemblyman John Hambrick (R-2), would provide for the uniform regulation of firearms in Nevada.  AB 340 has been referred to the Committee on Government Affairs, but has not yet been scheduled for a hearing.

Your action is needed NOW.  Please contact your state Senator and Assemblyman TODAY, and urge them to support these pro-gun measures!  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.  Please remember to contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully request they support Senate Bills 137, 223, and 226.
