Dayton, Nevada's own Polymer80, your favorite 80% handgun lower company, won an injunction today, July 20, against AB 286. AB 286 essentially bans 80% lower receivers in Nevada and is so poorly written even old, unserialized guns are potentially illegal.
From Polymer80's blog post:
In June, following the enactment of AB 286, Polymer80 took emergency action to stop the enforcement of the new law by challenging its constitutionality. To this end, Polymer80 initially filed a Verified Complaint coupled with an emergency application for an Order to Show Cause and related motion for a Temporary Restraining Order and Preliminary Injunction to bar enforcement of this new and seriously defective enactment. Polymer80 was forced to take this extraordinary action because, among many other reasons, AB 286, a hastily and poorly written and passed bill, purports to curtail and criminalize products that are legal to own under federal law. And, it does so through vague, unintelligible, and sweeping restrictions. At its core, AB 286 strips lawful citizens of Nevada of their basic, constitutionally protected rights and targets corporations, such as Polymer80, for lawful activities that greatly contribute to the Nevada economy and facilitate and safeguard the rights of Nevadans.
The injunction applies to Sections 3.5 and 6.9 of AB 286 (bill text). This is an injunction in state court.
Section 3.5 prohibits a person from selling, offering to sell or transferring an unfinished frame or receiver.
Section 6.9 reads: 9.“Unfinished frame or receiver” means a blank, a casting or a machined body that is intended to be turned into the frame or lower receiver of a firearm with additional machining and which has been formed or machined to the point at which most of the major machining operations have been completed to turn the blank, casting or machined body into a frame or lower receiver of a firearm even if the fire-control cavity area of the blank, casting or machined body is still completely solid and unmachined.
So right now it is legal in Nevada to buy 80% receivers until the injunction is reversed or the case is adjudicated. The criminalization of possession of 80% receivers you already own does not apply until 1/01/2022.
