Tuesday, Spurlocks Gun Shop in Henderson posted on Facebook that an unnamed highly placed source within the Republican Party:
A very reliable source in Northern Nevada that the legislature is going ahead with an assault weapon and high capacity magazine ban NEXT WEEK and it will almost certainly pass.
To date, we have been unable to confirm this rumor. Assemblyman Jim Wheeler, who confirmed the "sneak attack" of SB 143-universal background checks-had no knowledge of such a proposed bill. No other sources in the know have been able to confirm this information with us at this time. The rumor remains unconfirmed. We will update you should more information become available.
However, several vague Bill Draft Requests (BDRs) have been filed by anti-gun Democrats and promises have been made to ban "assault weapons." It is not clear if these were just campaign promises without the political will or capitol to be passed. However, should such a bill be passed, we have had warning since the primaries in 2018 and no one should caught with their pants down.
Now is the time to stock up on your rifles, receivers, and full capacity magazines. By all means, don't panic buy because of rumors, but don't put off for tomorrow what might be could be banned soon. You should preemptively politely contact your assemblyman and senator to tell them you don't support an assault weapon and magazine ban.
