As previously reported, Senate Bill 175 has passed its final vote in the Nevada legislature. SB 175 has now been sent to the desk of Governor Brian Sandoval where it awaits his consideration. Please contact Governor Sandoval today and politely urge him to sign Senate Bill 175.
Governor Brian Sandoval:
SB 175 makes drastic improvements to Nevada’s gun laws. This is done by improving Nevada’s preemption statutes, ensuring consistency in gun laws throughout the Silver State and most importantly, abolishing handgun registration in Clark County. SB 175 also improves the self-defense statutes by extending the castle doctrine to include automobiles, protects from civil liability those who have used force justifiably, and creates a rebuttable presumption in state law for when a person is acting in self-defense. Finally, SB 175 expands the list of out-of-state permits that will be recognized to carry concealed in Nevada.
