Yesterday, the Nevada Legislature began its 2015 session with the introduction of Assembly Bill 2. The Assembly Judiciary Committee will be considering Assembly Bill 2 tomorrow, February 4, at 8:00 a.m. in Room 3138 of the State Capitol.
Assembly Bill 2, introduced by Assemblyman John Hambrick (R-2), would revise the existing Nevada law concerning firearms on the property of certain educational entities or childcare facilities. Under current law, except under certain circumstances, citizens are prohibited from possessing firearms while on the property of the Nevada System of High Education, a private or public school or a child care facility, or while in a vehicle of a private or public school or a childcare facility. AB 2 will change the law to respect the right of law-abiding gun owners to possess a firearm on the Nevada System of High Education, a private or public school or a child care facility if the firearm remains out of common observation and is inside a motor vehicle, other than a school bus, that is: (1) occupied; (2) unoccupied and locked; or (3) stored in a locked container that is affixed securely to a motor vehicle. This bill is key to preserving your fundamental right to self-defense on the property of certain educational and childcare facilities.
Please contact members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee and politely urge them to support Assembly Bill 2. Contact information for Committee members can be found below.
