Tomorrow, Tuesday March 3, at 8:00 a.m., Assembly Bill 171, will be heard in the Assembly Judiciary Committee. Introduced by Assemblywoman Shelly Shelton (R-10), AB 171 is a critical self-defense bill that makes changes to Nevada’s self-defense laws, revising the definition of justifiable homicide, creating a presumption that an act of self defense was justified if certain criteria are met and providing protection against civil liability if the act was justified.
On Thursday, March 5, at 8:00 a.m., Assembly Bill 148, will be heard in the Assembly Judiciary Committee. Introduced by Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-4), AB 148 revises concealed-weapon laws to expand areas where concealed carry permit holders can lawfully carry.
Last Wednesday, February 25, the following bills were heard in committee:
Assembly Bill 139, introduced by Assemblyman Jim Wheeler (R-39), was heard in the Assembly Judiciary Committee. AB 139 makes changes to the existing concealed-weapons laws to authorize a non-resident who possesses a valid permit issued by another state to carry a concealed firearm in Nevada.
Senate Bill 171, introduced by state Senator James Settelmeyer (R-17), was heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee. SB 171 makes improvements to the existing law with respect to recognition ofout-of-state concealed carry permits. This bill would also do away with the Clark County blue card registration system by removing the grandfather exemption from the state preemption statutes.
Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated on these critical pro-gun bills when more information is available.
