AB 291 has been amended to include “red flag” gun confiscation provisions and vague “safe storage” requirements. The bill has passed from the Senate Judiciary Committee to the full senate floor for a vote. After that, the Assembly votes to accept the amendment and if the Assembly approves it, the bill will then go to the governor for signature or veto.
Red flag” gun confiscation have been billed as “extreme risk protection orders,” but are solely about keeping people from owning or possessing guns, allowing judges to order gun confiscation without due process with just a single accusation.
Even buying a gun in the last six months could be used against you to justify “high risk behavior.” The “red flag” language in the bill is poorly written and vague. Furthermore, the “red flag” bill, SB 120, did not even get a hearing on its own, and was added in after the 11th hour. This bill has been pushed by out-of-state, gun control interests at the behest of Democrat politicians who have
This bill is dangerous for Nevadans, it is dangerous for liberty, and will be expensive for the state to defend in court. Even if it is fairly applied in the near future, as California has shown, those who can apply for an order will expand to virtually anyone, greatly increasing the risk that this law will be abused to disarm any armed citizen. Imagine giving your worst enemy the ability to take away your guns; that is what “red flag” laws are setup to do.
You can help stop the bill. Remember; it’s not hopeless! The huge resistance show against this bill and gun control has helped.
Contact your Senator and Assembly person by phone & email. Demand that they vote “no” on AB 291.
Call as many senators and Assembly members as you can (not just yours). The legislative assistant will ask for your name and zip code. They don’t need this. If it’s your own representative, go ahead. The idea behind these calls is not give them a list of their own constituents who are for/against, but rather it is to scare them by showing broad opposition.

Call Governor Sisolak’s office and demand he veto the bill if it passes. Call and email him as well. If he vetoed taking Nevada off the National Interstate Popular Vote Compact (AB 186), he may veto further gun control. We will remember in 2022 his support for gun control at the ballot box.

Show up to the Second Amendment rally at the Capitol in Carson City, 11AM-1PM, Saturday, June 1st. Open carry is permitted, however, long-guns are discouraged (it might frighten the legislators into passing gun control).
No on AB 291. The legislative process has been abused at every step with this bill, particularly the amendments after the Senate committee deadline. The text and hearings were made public at the last minute possible to stymie opposition while unscrupulous legislators allowed Everytown to leak information to its supporters first. It is promoted by non-Nevadan interests and funded by Big Gun Control money in the form of campaign contributions that are little better than bribes. Defeating this bill is more than just about stopping gun control; it’s about showing Nevadans have no tolerance for Democrats cheating to pass bad laws.
