Ignoring the constitutional rights of law-abiding Nevadans, on June 14th, Governor Steve Sisolak signed omnibus anti-gun Assembly Bill 291 into law. Your NRA would like to thank the many lawmakers who stood with our members and Second Amendment supporters at every step of the legislative process in opposition to AB 291.
Assembly Bill 291, introduced by Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui (D-41), will:
- Create Red Flag/Pre-Crime Protective Orders that allow for the removal of a person's constitutional rights not because a person has been convicted of a crime or adjudicated mentally ill, but instead on third party allegations. This bill lacks strong due process protections and contains low evidentiary standards that fall well below the norm for removing fundamental constitutional rights.
- Impose Mandatory Storage Requirements that will expand Nevada's current law regulating firearm storage by imposing a one-size-fits-all government standard that requires firearms to be made unavailable for self-defense.
- Criminalize Certain Firearm Modifications: This bill is broader than existing federal regulations and would criminalize certain modifications on semi-automatic firearms. Violations of this section would result in felony penalties.
