We did a pretty good job in 2019 in sharing info here on gun bills coming up in the legislature.  I hope that we can build on that this year and keep the gun banners from having their way again.  Thanks again to all of those who wrote, called, showed up, and spoke on behalf of our rights here in NV - we will need you again this year!!

I will try to post in this thread as I see new bills hitting NELIS and sharing any other info as it comes.

Simple bill that adds the CCW exemption to private party sales.  Looks good to me.

No quite the campus carry law we all want to see but at least we won't be committing crimes anymore simply by having our CCW in our car when we drop our kids off at school.  Another good law that will need our support.  If you know of any moms that will benefit from this directly (like my wife), it will be impactful to have them reach out as women and mothers since that can carry different weight than seeing and hearing from the same old guys.

Adjustments to the "Red Flag Law".  This bill seems to remove the ability for family members to apply the for the order directly and application must come from law enforcement.  Also removes the requirement to hold an official "hearing" and the judge can simply review the application and decide whether or not to issue the order.  I don't think that makes much difference any way since the subjects of the application would not be informed of the hearing regardless but I will leave it up to the lawyers to tell me if I am missing something.  Not sure about this one since Red Flag laws are BS to begin with.

Have we even seen any data on how many of these orders have been issued in the past two years?  Furthermore, any evidence that a single potential crime has  been prevented (other than "thought crime")?

I’d pay money to get this to pass. I doubt it will though because background check = good.
