Nevada: New York-Style Gun Control Bill Heading to Governor for his Consideration

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Contact Governor Sandoval urging him to veto Senate Bill 221 TODAY!

 

For most of the session, Senate Bill 221 was stalled in the state legislature.  Anti-gun New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, then began operating in Nevada and started a deceptive spending campaign.  Now on the final day of the 2013 legislative session, and in spite of obvious flaws recognized even by supporters, SB 221 passed in the Assembly by a 23 to 19 vote and the Senate by a 11 to 10 vote on May 22.  SB 221 is now going to the Governor. Governor Brian Sandoval (R) has indicated that he will veto this legislation but he needs to hear your opposition to SB 221.  Please respectfully encourage him to veto this misguided gun control effort.

SB 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.  Additionally, SB 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.

SB 221 was also opposed by the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association, who testified before the Assembly Judiciary Committee in opposition to this deeply flawed legislation.

It is critical that you contact Governor Sandoval NOW and encourage him to stand strong to defend the rights of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen in Nevada.  Governor Sandoval can be reached by phone at (775) 684-5670 and by e-mail by clicking here.  Don’t let Mayor Bloomberg and his New York anti-gun agenda influence Nevada.

If your state legislators supported SB 221, please call and e-mail them to let them know you are disappointed in their vote that will only affect and punish law-abiding gun owners and do nothing to stop criminal activity.

If your state legislators opposed SB 221, please call and e-mail them to thank them for standing up for the law-abiding citizens of Nevada and the Second Amendment.

Contact information for your state legislators can be found here.

Please forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners across Nevada.
