Tuesday was the deadline for bills to pass from their chamber of origin. Three anti-gun bills have met this deadline and will continue on. Because the Judiciary Committees of both chambers have already held a joint hearing for these bills, they will likely not receive additional policy hearings and instead are eligible for votes when scheduled for a work session.
Assembly Bill 354 bans possessing firearms within 100 feet of polling places and redefines firearm frames and receivers. Under this legislation, a CCW holder could potentially face criminal penalties for simply traversing within an arbitrary distance of a ballot drop box.
Assembly Bill 355 discriminates against adults 18-20 years old, and further denies them their Second Amendment rights, by prohibiting them from possessing semi-automatic rifles and shotguns. In addition, it requires gun owners to lock up their semi-automatic long guns to prevent those under the age of 21 years from accessing them, or face criminal penalties. Under this legislation, both the parent and adult child could face criminal penalties while engaged in hunting or shooting sports, with no criminal intent, if using centerfire semi-automatic rifles or shotguns. These are some of the most commonly used firearms for the respective activities.
Senate Bill 171 expands Nevada’s prohibited persons categories for certain misdemeanor crimes.
