Gun Owners Victorious In Nevada

posted on June 8, 2017

On Monday, the Nevada Legislature adjourned, ending a session that not only saw the defeat of two particularly onerous anti-gun bills, but also the passage of pro-gun legislation benefiting Nevadans in the armed forces.

The two that failed included SB 115, which would have banned possession and carry of firearms on library grounds, including the library building as well as the parking lot and book-drop area—effectively making the state’s libraries off limits to anyone not willing to be disarmed. Also failing was SB 387, which would have allowed the revocation of Second Amendment rights based on a third-party allegation, with no criminal conviction or mental adjudication necessary. This bill was a gross violation of due process, as it would have required firearms to be surrendered weeks before a hearing could take place.

AB 118, signed by Gov. Brian Sandoval in May, lowered the age at which active military and those honorably discharged can obtain a concealed-carry permit from 21 to 18. The bill went into effect immediately upon signing.
