Nevada: Update, April 1 Gun Control Hearing to Include a Live Feed to Elko

On March 29th, both the Assembly and Senate Judiciary Committees announced via updated agendas that an Elko location will be videoconferenced in for the Monday April 1st gun control hearing.  This will give Nevadans in the North Eastern portion of the state an opportunity to participate in the hearing.  This was made possible by legislators representing North Eastern Nevada and an agreement from the Committee.  A special thanks to Senators Ira Hansen and Pete Goicochea, Assembly Members John Ellison and Alexis Hansen, along with the Committee. 

On Monday, April 1st at 8AM in room 4100, the Nevada Legislature will be holding a joint hearing of the Assembly and Senate Judiciary Committees to consider Assembly Bill 291.  This joint hearing may be the only opportunity for Nevadans to express their opposition to the committee prior to work sessions.  Introduced by Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui (D-41), this omnibus anti-gun legislation is a threat to both law-abiding gun owners residing in Nevada and those who are visiting.  It's imperative that gun owners contact members of the committee and voice their opposition.  You can contact the committee by using the take action button below and by calling the respective members. 

Assembly Judiciary Committee
Chair: Steve Yeager (D-9), (775) 684-8549 
Vice Chair: Lesley Cohen (D-29), (775) 684-8855

Brittney Miller (D-5), (775) 684-8833
Rochelle Nguyen (D-10), (775) 684-8541

Senate Judiciary Committee
Chair: Nicole Cannizzaro (D-6), (775) 684-1475
Vice Chair: Dallas Harris (D-11), (775) 684-6502
James Ohrenschall (D-21), (775) 684-6503
Marilyn Dondero Loop (D-8), (775) 684-1445
Melanie Scheible (D-9), (775) 684-1421
Scott Hammond (R-18), (775) 684-1442
Ira Hansen (R-14), (775) 684-1480
Keith Pickard (R-20), (775) 684-1481 

Most notably, AB 291:

  • Repeals Firearms Preemption Laws: State preemption prevents local governments from enacting their own gun control ordinances and creating a confusing patchwork of laws.  Without preemption, a person could face various laws and regulations when traveling throughout the State. 
  • Criminalizes Firearm Modifications: Like SB 261, introduced by Sen. Yvanna Cancela (D-10), 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.
  • Expands the ability for localities to create “gun-free zones:” These arbitrary boundaries only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless against the criminals who ignore such restrictions.

Hearing Info:

Date: Monday, April 1st
Time: 8:00AM
Where: Room 4100 of the Legislative Building, 401 S. Carson St., Carson City, NV. 
Videoconferenced to Room 4401 of the Grant Sawyer State Office Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV.
Videoconferenced to Room 102, McMullen Hall, Great Basin College, 1500 College Parkway, Elko, NV.
