Nevada: Anti-Gun Group Attacks Governor Sandoval on SB 221

Friday, May 31, 2013

Recently, a national anti-gun group calling itself “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” which is founded and funded by billionaire extremist New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, launched ads attacking Governor Brian Sandoval (R) for indicating that he would veto anti-gun Senate Bill 221 if it reached his desk.  Please contact Governor Sandoval, and respectfully express your opposition to Senate Bill 221 and encourage him to stand strong and continue to defend the rights of law-abiding gun owners in Nevada.

In the meantime, Senate Bill 221, sponsored by Senator Justin Jones (D-9) still awaits consideration in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.  With this legislative session quickly drawing to a close, Senate Bill 221 could be brought up for consideration at any moment in committee and then quickly move to the Assembly floor for approval.  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 – would still be required to go through a gun dealer and would 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.

Please respectfully contact your state Assemblyman and urge his or her opposition to this dangerous and harmful legislation. Contact information for your state legislators can be found here.
