    New Nevada gun laws from the 2017 legislative session

    Hey guys, I help moderate over on the NevadaShooters forum. I'm trying to work this year on watching the legislature for new gun laws, and I'm keeping a running list as they turn from bill draft resolutions (BDRs) to actual bills. Linkey link here: http://www.nevadashooters.com/showthread.php?t=76426

    I've also got information there on how to leave comments for or against the bills. I've been told the comments do get read by the committee members and, while they might be moot against a democrat controlled legislature this year, it's better than nothing. I also urge you to call your assemblypeople and senators in order to voice your opinions on these bills.

    My favorite bill currently sitting in committee is AB171, which would remove firearms from the list of items a person shall not carry without permit. And since open carry currently not prohibited by law either, this bill would make Nevada a constitutional carry state (without specifically using that phrase in the bill itself).

    Anyway, thanks for noticing.

    I've updated the list at NevadaShooters a few times, this is what I currently find as far as gun laws being proposed:

    BDR's found searching "firearm", "weapon" or "concealed":

    -SB102- Authorizes the possession of a handgun in a vehicle that is on the property of certain educational entities or child care facilities in certain circumstances. (BDR*15-79) Proposed by Senator Settlemeyer.

    Appears to be a "leave it in your car" permission for those with a CCW who find themselves needing to enter a school or daycare parking lot with their pistol. Not a campus carry solution, but could be a baby step towards full campus carry at a later session.

    Link to text of bill and status: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...BillName=SB102

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    -AB87- Revises provisions relating to permits to carry concealed firearms issued by certain other states. (BDR*15-96) Proposed by Assemblywoman Titus.

    Bill replaces the 60 day requirement that someone moving into Nevada with an out-of-state permit must then get a Nevada CCW, allowing that person to carry on their former state's permit until it actually expires (so long that the state is recognized by Nevada to begin with).

    Link to text of bill and status:
    http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...?BillName=AB87

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SB307 Revises provisions governing concealed firearms. Proposed by Senator Gustavson. (BDR 15-198)

    Removes the law prohibiting carrying concealed weapons, and repeals the laws governing the requirement to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Another bill to effectively turn Nevada into a constitutional carry state.

    Link to text of bill and status: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...BillName=SB307

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    -AB118-- Revises provisions governing the issuance of permits to carry concealed firearms. (BDR 15-204). Proposed by Assemblywoman Dickman.

    Bill allows for current military/nat'l guard and honorably discharged persons between the age of 18 and 21 to apply for a Nevada CCW permit.

    Link to text of bill and status: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...BillName=AB118

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SB124- Revises provisions concerning the ownership, possession and control of firearms by certain persons. (BDR 3-307). Proposed by Senator Spearman, has 3 additional co-sponsors and 5 endorsing signers...

    Amends domestic violence laws, requiring someone who is under extended protection order to transfer or sell all of their firearms out of their possession, appears to create a felony for non-compliance. Adds persons under protection order to the list of prohibited persons, also adds those convicted of domestic battery or stalking to the prohibited persons list, and makes the crimes a cat B felony (if they aren't already, I'm not sure on that).


    Link to text of bill and status: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...BillName=SB124

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    -15-572- Revises provisions governing permits to carry concealed firearms. Proposed by Assemblyman Daly.

    No text or AB number yet available.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    AB253 Authorizes the Central Repository for Nevada Records of Criminal History to share mental health adjudications with local law enforcement agencies for purposes of identifying persons prohibited from possessing firearms. Proposed by Assembly Committee on Judiciary (BDR 14-688)

    Appears to amend existing law regarding people who are ordered involuntarily to be committed to a facility for mental issues. Requires record of such court order to be sent to all law enforcement agencies involved in that court's jurisdiction (instead of just providing record to the NV central repository where records get ran). Requires the doctor and other professional presenting the evidence someone needs to be committed to do so at the time of trial instead of allowing 48 hours afterward.

    Link to text of bill and status: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...BillName=AB253

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    AB171- Revises provisions governing carrying certain concealed weapons. Removes the prohibition against carrying certain concealed weapons (BDR 458) Proposed by Assemblyman Marchant (Originally requested by Assemblyman Moore).

    Appears to be a constitutional carry bill. It removes the language in NRS 202.350 that prohibits carrying "Pistol, revolver or other firearm, other dangerous or deadly weapon or pneumatic gun".


    Link to text of bill and status: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...BillName=AB171


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SB115 Revises provisions concerning the prohibition against carrying or possessing certain weapons while on certain property. (BDR 15-279). Proposed by Senator Denis.

    This is a bill to amend NRS 202.265, adding "public libraries" to the list of schools, universities and daycare facilities where all weapons, concealed or openly carried, are prohibited.

    Link to text of bill and status: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...BillName=SB115

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SB254 Removes provision that provides immunity from civil liability in actions involving use of force under certain circumstances. (BDR*3-683)

    Thanks to some very detail oriented members for spotting this bill, the original description in the BDR list was "Revises provisions relating to civil actions" so it didn't come up in all my searching for gun related bills. This bill will remove civil protections given to a person who uses a firearm for lawful self-defense, basically allowing the a criminal (or family) to sue someone for defending themselves from the criminal act. As with all the bad bills, write your rep and leave comments on the bill so the legislature, and more importantly the governor later, know our stances on them.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SB351: Revises provisions relating to public safety. (BDR 15-946)

    Another bill that was hidden under "public safety", but this one is actually pro-gun. Removes the state prohibition against medical MJ card holders from possessing a firearm or a concealed firearm permit.

    You can go here to share your opinion. I"m not sure how well it is received but at least it is something. https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/79th2017/A/

    So SB115 and SB254 are dangerous, SB124 seems suspect. Thanks for all your work on this.

    There are more coming. Some BDR's hat haven't had text introduced still have "concealed weapon" and "firearms" in their very generic titles. Plus, some of these bills had intentionally vague descriptions like "changes to public safety" to make them harder to find.

    SB115 is a response to an incident pressed by OC group last year, they kept OCing into a Klark Kounty library to make a point that it shouldn't be illegal to do so (true by letter of the law). Library leadership kept claiming they could ban whatever they want, in violation of state preemption, lawsuits happened, and now we're seeing libraries added to the short list of "all weapons banned" places.

    SB124 is hard to argue against. After all, who wants domestic abusers and stalkers to have guns? But in reality, it takes away someone's right without a conviction. If these people are so dangerous we can't let them have their guns, why are they still out where they can grab knives or baseball bats or a million other improvised weapons?

    Thanks Steve for posting the link to leave comments. I've heard in past sessions that some of the leaders use the comments to try and argue with their peers, and if we can give republicans some indication We don't want these bills passed, they'll have those comments to use in committee and on the floor. Sadly, democrats are the majority and are in perfect lockstep on passing many of these. The library bill sped through the state senate at mach 5 and is now headed to the assembly. I've written opinions on each, I hope others will take 10 minutes to do so too.

    Happy to see SB351. Its a joke that as a cancer patient I cannot get a medical card without giving up my 2A rights while nausea meds and the opioid pain meds that are prescribed are a non issue.

    Unfortunately the feds will still see this as a no-no but its a step in the right direction.

    Hi all. Updated again today, I decided to check which bills are now active and which died on the 4-15-17 deadline.

    All bills not listed below have died:

    -AB118 for Nat'l Guard and military 18-21 to get CCW permits has passed the assembly and now rests in a senate committee.

    -SB124 requiring those under an *extended* protection order to surrender or sell/transfer all firearms has survived judiciary committee, and should be voted on the assembly floor soon.

    -AB253 revising the timeframe in which mental cases are sent to local LEO to be added to the mental repository has survived judiciary committee, and should be voted on the assembly floor soon.

    -SB115, the so called "library revenge bill", has been passed by the senate and now rests in an assembly committee.

    -SB387 which added a phrase "high-risk offender" to the laws pertaining to those named in protection orders if they own firearms or ammo, and prohibits them from purchasing as well. It has passed committee and would be headed to the floor for a senate vote. A note on the bill's link on the legislature page claims it "contains an unfunded mandate", which I believe to mean they need to somehow amend it to pay for the idea.


    Could've been worse for gun owners this year with a democrat state house and democrat state senate. We didn't see any magazine laws, or AWB's, etc., and I think that's because the dems knew Sandoval would squash them. He's been a friend to gun owners in the past. I doubt he can afford to veto any gun bill related to domestic violence and protection orders, however, so those are likely in my mind to pass.
