Tomorrow, May 8, at 1:00 p.m., the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear Assembly Bill 352 and Assembly Bill 404. Thanks to phone calls and emails from members and Second Amendment supporters, the bills have been scheduled for a hearing after being stalled in committee.
Special thanks to Senate Majority Leader, Senator Michael Roberson and Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Greg Brower for scheduling these bills for a hearing.
Assembly Bill 352, introduced by Assemblyman Ellison, would allow for the carrying of a concealed firearm in a public building by a permit holder unless that building has both a metal detector and a sign at each public entrance indicating that no firearms are allowed in the building.
Assembly Bill 404, introduced by Assemblywoman Fiore, would require the chief law enforcement officer of a jurisdiction to certify the transfer or making of a firearm, as required by the National Firearms Act, if the person is not prohibited from receiving or possessing a firearm by law. This legislation also permits an applicant to appeal a denial to the district court. In addition, AB 404 provides that if an individual submits an application for renewal of a concealed carry permit before the expiration date, the permit remains valid until the sheriff grants or denies the application. Further, AB 404 allows for new residents to carry concealed with their valid out-of-state permit until their application for a Nevada concealed carry permit is approved or denied.
