Nevada Assembly Judiciary Committee Sneaks Anti-Gun Bill Through on Deadline Day

Nevada Assembly Judiciary Committee Sneaks Anti-Gun Bill Through on Deadline Day

Today was the deadline to pass legislation out of policy committees in the house of origin. Assembly Bill 286 did not appear on any Assembly Judiciary Committee agenda for a work session, nor did it appear on any of the five revised agendas the committee sent out leading up to the hearing. Instead, Chair Steve Yeager (D-9), after recessing the committee from considering the agendized bills, brought the committee back to vote on the non-agendized bill that contained an 18 page amendment that was made publicly available for the first time. Despite requests by Committee Members P. K. O'Neill (R-40) and Jim Wheeler (R-39) to recess, so they could read the amendment before voting, the chair refused to recognize the request. The committee ultimately passed the legislation on to the floor by a 9-6 party line vote. AB 286 will be eligible for a vote on the Assembly floor next week. Use the “Take Action” button below to contact your Assembly Member and urge their opposition to AB 286. 

Assembly Bill 286, sponsored by Assembly Member Sandra Jauregui (D-41), essentially bans home-built firearms for personal use by imposing requirements that far exceed those in federal law. It prohibits private individuals from possessing certain unregulated components commonly used by hobbyists to make their own firearms. This confiscatory bill also bans possession of existing, legal, home-built firearms.

It also prohibits law-abiding citizens from being able to defend themselves at certain businesses, such as hotels and shopping malls, if the owners want to declare it a gun-free zone, unless they receive written permission from the business. This restriction extends to the property line, meaning it includes open areas like parking lots, with limited exceptions. The bill contains no requirements for businesses to provide any security measures to guarantee the safety of these disarmed patrons, such as security guards or metal detectors, to prevent armed criminals from ignoring the arbitrary boundaries and entering.​

Additionally, today, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to pass Senate Bill 6, to make revisions to the red flag laws passed during the 2019 session, including language to more than double the duration that authorities can keep firearms after a “red flag” order expires. SB 6 will be eligible for a vote on the Senate floor next week.
