Nevada: Bill Introduced to Criminalize Firearm Modifications

On March 12th, an anti-gun bill was introduced in the Nevada state Senate that would criminalize common firearm modifications. 

Senate Bill 261, introduced by Sen. Yvanna Cancela (D-10), would prohibit the sale, manufacture, purchase, possession, or transfer of various firearm parts and accessories.  This legislation has language even more broad and overreaching than existing federal regulations and could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers or ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.  Senate Bill 261 has been referred to the state Senate Committee on Judiciary but has not yet been scheduled for a hearing. 

The deadline in Nevada to introduce legislation is March 18, 2019.  Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updated on issues affecting your Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage in the Silver State.
