Nevada: Anti-Gun Bills Scheduled for Committee Hearings Next Week

Next week, anti-gun bills Senate Bill 115 and Senate Bill 387 are both scheduled for hearings in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

SB 115, sponsored by state Senator Moises Denis (D-2), would expand the list of places firearms are prohibited from being carried and kept to include public library property.  In addition to banning firearms within the library, this prohibition would be extended to include the parking lot as well.  This would encompass the onsite “book drop” stations commonly used for returning library materials.  SB 115 is scheduled for a hearing on Tuesday, May 9.  Please contact the Assembly Judiciary Committee members in opposition to this bill!

SB 387, sponsored by Senator Julia Ratti (D-13), would allow for ex parte orders to remove your Second Amendment rights - not because of a criminal conviction or mental adjudication, but based on third party allegations.  This order lacks due process as firearms are required to be surrendered weeks before a hearing may take place.  Further, this bill, unlike the current "Legal 2000 process," would do nothing to address those in need of mental health treatment or evaluation.  SB 387 is scheduled for a hearing on Friday, May 12.  Please contact the Assembly Judiciary Committee members in opposition to this bill!

Additionally, Assembly Bill 118, a pro-gun bill which would allow members of the military and those who have received an honorable discharge between 18 and 20 years of age to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm, passed the Senate Judiciary Committee.  AB 118 is now pending its Second Read in the Senate.
