Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui of Clark County's omnibus bill AB 291 that would end state preemption of firearm laws moves forward! It is being heard Monday April 1 at 8 AM. No April Fools.
Drop what you are doing and plan to show up at the hearings on Monday. Tell your friends, call in sick. They thought the opposition against background checks was heavy? Let's bury them with emails, phone calls, and showing up.
Could it be revenge for the rural counties resisting Washoe and Clark County led gun control in the legislature? Maybe. All that means is that the Democrats are running scared.
Repealing state preemption is a bad idea. It re-creates the patchwork of gun laws that could put an innocent citizen in danger of a crime because they didn’t know the local laws. This bill must be stopped! If they repeal preemption, counties and cities can piecemeal dismantle the Second Amendment. They could ban open carry like Reno once did.
Anything you hear in support of this bill is a lie. This bill would gut the protections of state preemption that has been in existence since 1989. Lying Democrats and hoplopaths will say it was enacted by Republicans in 2015, but in reality the 2015 bill got rid of Clark County handgun registration and a few local ordinances that were grandfathered in.
Specifically, the bill contains:
Monday, April 1, 2019 8 AM
Room 4100, Legislative Building, 401 S. Carson St., Carson City, NV.
Room 4401, Grant Sawyer State Office Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV.
