Today, Assembly Bill 148 was passed in the Assembly by a 24 to 15 vote. 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.
Assembly Bill 148 will now be transmitted to the Senate where it will await committee referral.
