The bill now on Governor Sisolak’s desk

Both the Nevada House and Senate passed a “red flag” bill.  The bill also outlaws firearm modifications, and requires guns be locked up. This great bill, AB 291, would go a long way in making homes safer in Nevada. Of course, the NRA is strenuously fighting it. The Governor has until the end of today (6/13) to sign the bill into law.

The Bill

👍 AB 291 would do the following:

  • Create a “red flag” procedure allowing family and authorities to request a judge remove guns from a dangerous person. The bill also includes language banning bump stocks.
  • Allow local communities to make gun safety laws.
  • Outlaw firearm modifications that allowed the Las Vegas massacre last year.
  • Expand on the current firearm storage requirements.
