Today, February 6, the Nevada Legislature convened for the 2017 session. This session, a mixture of pro-gun and anti-gun bills are expected to be introduced in the coming days along with possible legislative efforts to “fix” Question 1, the flawed initiative that was narrowly passed last November.
The following pro-gun measures were pre-filed and introduced today:
Assembly Bill 87, sponsored by Assemblywoman Robin Titus (R-38), would allow new Nevada residents to continue to carry a concealed firearm by utilizing their recognized out of state permit until that permit expires or a Nevada CCW is issued. Currently, new residents may only carry under their recognized out of state permit for 60 days.
Senate Bill 102, sponsored by Senator James Settelmeyer (R-17), would allow lawful gun owners with concealed weapon permits to carry or store their firearms in their vehicles on school property.
Senate Joint Resolution 11, sponsored by Senator Scott Hammond (R-18), proposes to amend the Nevada State Constitution to preserve the right to hunt, trap and fish. SJR 11 passed both chambers in 2015 and must pass both chambers of the legislature this year in order to be presented to the voters in 2018.
