Gun Bill in Nevada is Watered Down, Thanks to NSSF Efforts

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed AB291 into law. Originally with a magazine ban and elimination of state preemption, the bill was watered down to include "red flag" provisions, ban bump stocks, establish blood-alcohol limits while carrying a firearm, and increase penalties for unauthorized access by a child resulting in injury. This bill portended to be much worse. The legislature introduced bills banning standard capacity magazines, bump stocks, trigger jobs, or anything materially increasing rate of fire, fixing their universal background check law, eliminating state preemption, enacting mandatory storage requirements, and implementing red flag laws. NSSF worked to defeat the worst of these threats.
