Last week we reported Metro was prohibiting CCW training classes after 3/24/2020, citing the governor's shut down order. Today, Metro has sent notice to all instructors that classes can resume with social distancing in order.
Someone got the memo. Good for Metro, but we're still using this as Exhibit 1 in why permits need to be abolished altogether.
Online applications are available, but the Fingerprint Bureau is not expected to reopen until at least April 27.
We have just received notice from our Special Investigations Unit Lieutenant that the NV Attorney General’s Office has offered clarification about the essential business order.
As you know, our SIS Unit is responsible for enforcing Governor Sisolak’s order to only allow essential businesses to remain open. The NV Attorney General has advised that they can allow CCW instruction to continue, so long as instructors are abiding by the social distancing rules.
Our Records and Fingerprint Bureau will remain closed. So applicants can go to LVMPD.com to submit their information and schedule an appointment to complete the application process. Please make sure that your students are aware that the 120 day count does not start until their fingerprints are taken. When submitting their application please direct them to only use the NVSCA Firearms Safety Course Certificate, which is page 7 of the application packet.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you.
