NRA-ILA is co-sponsoring the Nevada Celebration of Freedom in North Las Vegas on Saturday, July 18. Blue card holders and Second Amendment supporters will commemorate the enactment of NRA-backed legislation that abolishes Clark County’s antiquated blue card system by shredding their old blue cards.
The blue cards were part of a nearly 70-year-old handgun registration scheme that ended earlier when the Senate Bill 175 became law.
"Doing away with the blue cards is a tremendous victory, not only for NRA members and Second Amendment supporters, but for every law-abiding citizen in Nevada who loves freedom," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA.
