The Nevada Legislature convenes February 7th, 2005.
In order to get a head start on introducing bills, the legislators start introducing "Bill Draft Requests" starting in the early summer.
So far there are four BDR's that we might want to keep an eye on:
--35 Requested 11/03/2003
Requested by Legislator
Prohibits weapons designed to elude security checkpoints.
--301 Requested 8/10/2004
Requested by Assemblyman Perkins
Clarifies the provisions governing carrying a concealed weapon.
--315 Requested 8/19/2004
Requested by Senator McGinness
Revises provisions governing the possession of certain firearms.
--317 Requested 8/19/2004
Requested by Assemblywoman Pierce
Makes changes to provisions governing permits to carry concealed firearm.
There's no description of the BDR other that what you see here.
I've sent a e-mail requesting to the three legislators that were bold enough to attach their name to the BDR.
I guess it's time to fire up my Nevada CCW Info site.
Good Info. We need to stay proactive or we may lose what's important to us all.
Got a reply from Senator McGinness concerning BDR #315:
"I was asked to introduce this measure to cover a 'collectible' short-barrelled .22 rifle that a constituent in Fallon bought in Boys' Life Magazine when he was a kid. According to Nevada Revised Statutes, it is now illegal. We are going to reference the ATF's list of curios and collectible because it is listed in there and we wouldn't have to try to re-invent the wheel. The bill will have nothing to do with concealed weapons."
Looks like we can take that one off of our "watch list".
Thanks for the heads-up Jim. Last session I had the pleasure of dealing with Lynn Hettrick (R) Gardernerville.
Mr. Hettrick is a true Patriot who champions all gun rights, not just issues regarding CCW's. He's a great contact for the gun community in Nevada.
