Several Pro- and Anti-Gun Bills Still Moving Forward in Carson City

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Contact your state legislators TODAY!

April 12 was the deadline for all legislation to pass out of the committee in its chamber of origin, absent an exception. Several pro- and anti-gun bills will be continuing to move unless they fail to pass by the next legislative deadline on Tuesday, April 23. Please call AND e-mail your state legislators urging them to SUPPORT the pro-gun bills and OPPOSE the anti-gun bills listed below. Contact information for your state Senator and Assemblyman can be found here.


Pro-Gun legislation still moving: 

Senate Bill 76 passed in the state 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.

Assembly Bill 195 helps to streamline CCW renewals by allowing a person to apply at any time before the CCW permit expires.

Anti-Gun legislation still moving:

Senate Bill 221 makes revisions to Nevada law regarding mental health in addition to requiring background checks on private party transfers. An individual who fails to comply with the new background check transfer requirements would be prohibited from possessing a firearm for a period of two years after being found guilty of a gross misdemeanor.

Senate Bill 277 makes revisions to the Nevada law regarding mental health and firearms. This bill attaches a disability to a person based on the mere filing of a petition, offering no before-the-fact due process.



Anti-gun bills defeated for the 2013 legislative session:

Senate Bill 396 bans so-called “assault weapons," magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds and possession of certain types of ammunition. Further, this bill requires background checks on private party transfers of firearms.

Assembly Bill 234 imposes punitive excise taxes on firearms and ammunition as well as banning the possession of certain types of ammunition and requiring background checks on private party transfers.


Pro-gun bills defeated for this year:

Senate Bill 137 provides for permitless carry of a concealed firearm.

Senate Bill 223 allows for concealed carry of firearms by school employees.

Assembly Bill 70 extends Castle Doctrine to include vehicles.

Assembly Bill 143 allows for concealed carry licensees to carry on higher education campuses.

Assembly Bill 340 strengthens existing firearms preemption laws to remove previously grandfathered local ordinances.
