Yesterday , gun owners, firearms dealers and the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association showed up to testify before the Assembly Judiciary Committee in opposition to Senate Bill 221, Senator Justin Jones’ (D-9) “universal” background check bill.  We thank those who attended this hearing and those who contacted their state legislators to oppose this dangerous legislation.  As the end of this legislative session draws near, there has never been a more important time to keep up the pressure in Carson City!  Please continue to contact your state Assemblyman to ensure Senate Bill 221 does not pass.

The conference committee tasked with reconciling the House and Senate versions of Senate Bill 69 reached a decision last week, sending their recommended version back to both legislative chambers for approval.  Both chambers will vote on this bill tomorrow.

Members of Congress should reject the idea that expanding a broken background check system will make anyone safer. The American people deserve better than politicians who continue to pursue failed policy agendas. Americans deserve to be safe in their communities and to have their Second Amendment rights respected. We can achieve both.

Unfortunately, the rumors of more attempts at gun control in Washington have proven true. House Bill 1588, “universal background check” legislation, was introduced today by state Representative Jamie Pederson (D-43), Mike Hope (R-44) and 21 other state Representatives. This bill has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee, where Representative Jamie Pederson is the chairman and Representative Mike Hope is a key Republican on this committee.
