Nevada: Pro-Gun Legislation Stalled in Committee, Your Help is Needed!

In Nevada, Assembly Bills 100, 148, 352, 357, and 404 are currently being held up in the Senate Judiciary Committee with the deadline for second passage quickly approaching.  These bills need to pass out of committee by Friday, May 15, so that they may be considered on the Senate floor.  It is critical that you contact the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Greg Brower, and Senate Majority Leader, Senator Michael Roberson, TODAY and respectfully request that they schedule a hearing for these bills.  Contact information is provided below:

Senator Greg Bower (R-15)
775-684-1419
Greg.Brower@sen.state.nv.us

Senator Michael Roberson (R-20)
702-612-6929
Michael.Roberson@sen.state.nv.us

As previously reported, Assembly Bill 100, introduced by Assemblyman John Ellison (R-33), aims to protect the constitutional rights of Nevadans by requiring legal action by the Attorney General if, at the direction of the Governor or in the opinion of the Attorney General, Nevadans' Second Amendment rights have been infringed through executive order.  AB 100 passed the Nevada Assembly with a 27-14 vote and is currently awaiting a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Assembly Bill 148, introduced by Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-4), seeks to expand areas where concealed carry permit holders can lawfully carry to include university campuses, public buildings that are not equipped with a metal detector and a sign prohibiting carrying of concealed firearms, and parking lots for K-12 schools.  AB 148 passed the Assembly with a 24-15 vote and is currently awaiting a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

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.  AB 352 passed the Assembly with a 26-14 vote and is currently awaiting a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Assembly Bill 357, introduced by Assemblywoman Fiore, would authorize 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.  AB 357 passed the Assembly with a 41-1 vote and is currently awaiting a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

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.  AB 404 passed the Assembly with a 35-7 vote and is currently awaiting a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
