Nevada: Gun Bills Scheduled for Hearings Next Week

Next week, the Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled hearings for two gun bills.

Senate Bill 115, sponsored by state Senator Moises Denis (D-2), would expand the list of places firearms are prohibited from being carried and kept in vehicles to include public libraries. The motivation behind this bill likely stems from an incident last year where a mother of three, who home schools her children, was detained and handcuffed for open carrying in a public library even though it’s not prohibited under current law.  SB 115 has been scheduled for a hearing Tuesday, February 28, at 1:30pm.  Please contact members of the committee and urge them to OPPOSE SB 115!

Senate Bill 102, sponsored by state 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. This bill would help fix a shortfall in the concealed carry laws that place permit holders in violation of state law by simply crossing the arbitrary line that defines a school zone. SB 102 is scheduled for a hearing next Wednesday, March 1.  Please contact members of the committee and urge them to SUPPORT SB 102!

Additionally, Assembly Bill 118, a pro-gun bill sponsored by Assemblyman Skip Daly (D-31), was recently introduced.  AB 118 would allow a member of the military between 18 and 21 years of age to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm.  Current law requires a person to be at least 21 years of age to be eligible for a concealed carry permit. If persons between 18 and 21 years of age are risking their lives for our country then they should be eligible to acquire permits for self-defense.

Also, don’t forget log on to the NELIS Opinion Poll on the Nevada Legislature website and voice your opinion on these important measures. Click here to read more details on AB 87 and SJR 11.
