Nevada Military Carry Bill Heads To Governor

posted on May 17, 2017

A bill that would allow active-duty service members and veterans to obtain a concealed-carry permit at 18 years of age is headed to Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval for consideration. AB 118—which would apply to active, reserve or honorably released members of the Armed Forces or National Guard—would prevent the disarming of men and women who have volunteered to defend our country and way of life.

In a statement, Assemblyman Skip Daly pointed out the hypocrisy of the state’s current carry policy: “Right now, the law states you must be 21 or over to obtain a permit, and yet the military has already given them the responsibility of carrying a weapon. It does not make sense that our younger members of the military would be trusted to carry a gun in our defense, but not in their everyday lives.”

AB 118 has received widespread bipartisan support: It passed the Assembly 34-4 in April, and was approved unanimously by the Senate last Thursday. Pro-gun Gov. Sandoval is expected to sign the measure, making Nevada the third state to pass this common-sense legislation.
