Nevada: Expanded Carry Bill to Receive Vote Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Assembly Bill 148 is expected to receive a vote in the Assembly.  As previously reported, AB 148, introduced by Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-4), would revise concealed-weapons laws to expand areas where concealed carry permit holders can lawfully carry.  Incorporated into AB 148, is Assembly Bill 2.  By merging AB 2 into this bill, AB 148 would also respect the right of law-abiding gun owners to possess a firearm inside a motor vehicle on property of the Nevada System of Higher Education, a private or public school and childcare facilities.

Please contact your state Assemblyman/woman today and urge him or her to SUPPORT AB 148 when it comes before them for a final vote.

Also on Monday, three firearm-related bills are scheduled for a hearing at 8:00 a.m. in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

Assembly Bill 352, introduced by Assemblyman John Ellison (R-33), exempts peace officers from the fees required to obtain a permit to carry concealed.  AB 352 also aims to clarify existing Nevada law to ensure an individual’s right to carry a firearm that is not concealed on the premise of any public building where a prohibition on the carrying of a firearm is not otherwise imposed.

Assembly Bill 357, introduced by Assemblywoman Fiore, authorizes certain individuals who are prohibited from possessing firearms to petition the district court for the restoration of the right to own, possess, and control a firearm.

Assembly Bill 404, also introduced by Assemblywoman Fiore, makes changes to current Nevada law pertaining to the issuance and renewal of a permit to carry a concealed weapon.  AB 404 provides that if a permittee submits an application for renewal before the expiration date, the permit remains valid until the sheriff grants or denies the application.  AB 404 also provides that a refund of the respective application fee be made to an applicant or permittee if the sheriff does not grant or deny an application within 120 days.
