Primary Election in Washoe County, NV - Vote to support gun rights.
I am starting to compile some information on Nevada/Washoe County candidate weapon stances.
December 16, 2013: The Nevada division of child and family services met today in the State legislature building to discuss amendments to regulations including NAC 424.600 which relates to weapons in foster homes. The purpose of the change was to allow for law enforcement officers on duty to possess a weapon. However, I testified to the effect that the regulation should be considered invalid entirely due to the state preemption laws and a lack of specific statute authorizing the division to create gun regulations. Present rules prohibit a foster parent from having a gun accessible for self-defense.
October 1, 2013: SB76 takes effect today in Nevada. The good thing is that it allows a person with a concealed firearm permit to carry concealed any gun defined under federal law as a handgun regardless of what you qualified with. The bad thing is that it prohibits the concealed carry of semi-automatic rifles, shotguns, and antique handguns.
September 2, 2013: I put together a new page about NAA mini-revolvers, how to use them, and what accessories are available.
August 1, 2013: The list of state permits that Nevada recognizes have changed.
June 13, 2013: The governor has vetoed SB221!
June 3, 2013: Today was the last day of the legislative session, and SB221 passed both houses. However, it is still possible that the Governor will veto it.
May 24, 2013: In the Nevada legislative session, an important hearing for SB221 is on Tuesday May 28. This bill will generally restrict private sales of firearms in Nevada. Also it appears likely that SB76 will be enrolled as it is back to the Senate for concurrence. This bill results in a simplification of the CCW qualification process to only one handgun, but limits concealed carry only to firearms defined under federal law as handguns.
May 20, 2013: The Nevada section of the website now has its own navigation bar and the format has been improved for increased usability.
May 14, 2013: There is an important hearing in the Nevada Legislature for SB76 tomorrow at 8:00 AM.
May 13, 2013: I'm beginning the process of changing the website to have a more user-friendly interface.
April 23, 2013: If enough people write an e-mail, it may still be possible to revive the Nevada campus carry bill. Follow this link for more information.
April 13, 2013: Since bills had to pass the first committee yesterday to advance, most of the gun related bills are now dead in the Nevada 2013 Legislative Session. Assembly Chairman Frierson never allowed the Campus Carry bill to get a vote, even though 7 out of 12 members of the committee told the press that they would have voted in favor of it.
March 29, 2013: There are a lot of important hearings coming up in the Nevada Legislative Session. Be sure to check the Nevada Bills page to see the latest updates.
March 11, 2013:
In the NV legislative session, details of new gun control bills are now available.
February 19, 2013:
The Legislative bills for the 77th session in Nevada have been added as well as their descriptions. During the legislative session, I will keep this page up to date.
February 10, 2013:
I have started a new section covering state level weapons laws in Nevada for weapons other than firearms.
January 22-29, 2013:
I have been adding more content to the Nevada page over the last few days.
January 15, 2013:
All the local Nevada ordinances and regulations I could easily find have been added in the Nevada Arms Law section.
January 2, 2013:
A page on gunsmithing screwdrivers has been added. A list of county ordinances in Nevada has been added.
December 16, 2012:
A section on how federal gun laws affect firearm carry is now in the process of being added. Soon, this section will feature more citations and more information. The Nevada section has now been updated to reflect the constitution of Nevada.
December 9, 2012:
The section on Nevada carry law has been added to considerably, including a table of restricted carry locations in Nevada. However, there is more to add. In the future, self-defense laws, and local laws will be added, and soon a page on NV knife law will be added.
December 4, 2012:
A section on loading revolvers rapidly has been added, discussing the history and application of speedloaders, moon clips, speed strips, and interchangeable cylinders. In the near future pictures will be added and the video improved. Coming soon: Article about magazine loading tools.
Previously This Year:
The site is born, and sections on Nevada Firearm Law, and California Archery law, and some links are added.
