Recommended Posts

Friday, April 12th, is the deadline for bills to advance from committees in their chamber of origin.  Please continue to contact Assembly Committee on Judiciary members and urge them to OPPOSE AB 291 and AB 153.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact members of the committee.

Assembly Bill 291, introduced by Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui (D-41), is omnibus anti-gun legislation that is a threat to both law-abiding gun owners residing in Nevada and those who are visiting.  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: 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.  Any violation would be punishable as a category D felony.
  • 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.

Assembly Bill 153, introduced by Assembly Member Ozzie Fumo (D-21), would expand Nevada's current law regulating firearm storage by imposing a one-size-fits-all government standard that could make firearms unavailable for self-defense.

Tomorrow, April 8th, the Senate Committee on Judiciary will be holding a hearing on Senate Bill 439 to allow a prosecutor to dismiss charges for the unlawful carrying of a concealed firearm on the condition that the person obtains a concealed firearms permit.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact members of the committee and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 439.

Again, please click the “Take Action” buttons above to urge the Assembly Committee on Judiciary to OPPOSE AB 291 and AB 153 and to urge the Senate Committee on Judiciary to SUPPORT SB 439.
