Nevada: Anti-Gun Legislators Still Pushing Background Check Bill Despite Gun Owners and Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association Opposition

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Yesterday, gun owners,firearms dealers and the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association showed up to testify before the Assembly Judiciary Committee in opposition to Senate Bill 221, Senator Justin Jones’ (D-9) "universal" background check bill.  We thank those who attended this hearing and those who contacted their state legislators to oppose this dangerous legislation.  As the end of this legislative session draws near, there has never been a more important time to keep up the pressure in Carson City!  Please continue to contact your state Assemblyman to ensure Senate Bill 221 does not pass.

If enacted into law, Senate Bill 221 would ban all private firearm transfers, absent an exception, unless conducted through a gun dealer.   Even transactions that do not require a background check – such as those involving a concealed firearm permit holder –  will still be required to go through a gun dealer and will be subject to a fee.  This onerous requirement creates unnecessary hurdles and fees that will ONLY impact law-abiding gun owners.  Additionally, Senate Bill 221 carries penalties so severe for violations of this proposed law that failure to follow them exactly would result in temporary, and even permanent, loss of your fundamental Second Amendment rights.

Contact your state Assemblyman IMMEDIATELY and hold him or her accountable.  Demand that he or she protect the rights of law-abiding Nevada residents and OPPOSE Senate Bill 221.
