Against Dear Assemblyman Hafen: Stand Up Nevada is a group formed to recall Sisolak, this may be even harder now that he signed a bill making it so. We are having a rallly in Pahrump on 11/17/2019 and we need a place to have it where we have electrical access and bathroom access. We will be selling T-shirts and stickers for our non-profit cause. Can you assist us in securing a place to have the rally on Route 160? I am a native Nevadan and we are trying as hard as we can to keep Nevada becoming a suburb of CA, which is where Sisolak is taking it with his liberal and anti-gun laws. Can you assist us? You may contact me at jarrfan@cox.net or Fight for Nevada 775-340-9620 or 775-309-7867. I know we can count on you in this endeavor and I know your family's home is Pahrump. Bless you. Carol J. McKenzie Sep-14-2019
Against AB291 is against federal rights. It is also against the 1st, 2nd, and 4th amendment rights upon citizens of Nevada and the United States of America. This amendment is a poorly written bill that should be removed. It violates rights and due process. Anyone that is against a person can submit a claim and have false accusations. That does not permit anyone (i.e. law enforcement) to take away firearms. These "mass shootings" are very minimal and does not permit such stringent laws against good citizens. Drunk drivers, heart disease, and opioid addictions are much far greater of an issue that has not been resolved in any state, yet Americans rights are being infringed upon because of rash decisions. Reconsider these actions, and focus on laws that will criminalize real criminals and not law abiding citizens. Sep-13-2019
Against The wording of AB291 has vague language. For example, "2) the person has engaged in high-risk behavior; and (3) less restrictive options have been exhausted or are not effective." What exactly does this mean? No where is "high risk" behavior defined. I'd also like to why HIPPA rights are not addressed. Franly, a person with a grudge filing a false report can be charged with a misdemeanor according to this bill but that does not change the devastation to the life of theperson accused. The charges should be changed to a gross misdemenaor due to the seriousness of the false report. This is useless and in here for politicians to say he or she "tried to do something. Does this law include a mandatory 72 hour hold for mental health professionals as part of the seizure? If not, this is only an excuse to take a person's guns and doesn't really address the problem.

In Favor Aug-04-2019
Against This bill severely undermines the 2nd amendment of the US constitution and should be STRONGLY OPPOSED. If you want to change the constitution - please feel free to follow the constitutional amendment process. However, PLEASE do not enact laws that are in conflict with the US Constitution. Jul-29-2019
Against Absolutely disgusting that our Governor signed this bill into law ! Jun-20-2019
Against Jun-19-2019
Against Some estimate that there are 1200 or more gun laws in the U.S. Wouldn’t we be better off enforcing at least a few of these rather than putting more laws on the books especially unconstitutional laws like AB291. Jun-17-2019
In Favor I thought we were pretty clear with our votes last November what we wanted. I support AB291 Jun-15-2019
Against We have enough gun laws in Nevada. We haven't had any mass shootings or any idiots or retards out 'shooting up the town'. Why make laws where none are needed. Furthermore, this Bill is not only violating our Constitutional rights but also infringing on our Nevada Constitutional rights. No Amendments are needed to allow every County to make their own laws. The law should stand as it is! We, as Nevadans, should not have to research each county before entering while traveling throughout the state. Seems Clark County is so large and full of politial corruption, that all rural Nevada has to suffer as well!! Jun-14-2019
Against A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED! this law is unconstitutional! Jun-14-2019

Against STRONGLY OPPOSE  Jun-13-2019
Against This, like the other anti-private ownership bill passed earlier, will be completely ignored by the criminal element in our society. This law is directed toward law abiding citizens who own guns and enjoy shooting sports. Law abiding gun owner are not the problem but in the minds of Democrats these people are the problem. Responsible gun owners will have to concern them selves about these new walls put up against gun ownership, as they do not want to fall into the set traps after coming under scrutiny by an over zealous DA or law enforcement agency. This is a bad bill written for all the wrong reasons and needs to see the bottom of the Governor’s trash can, it needs a strong veto..... Jun-13-2019
Against This bill is an assault on the Constitution, Due process s the law !!! Jun-13-2019
Against This bill is a complete violation against Nevada gun owners 2nd Amendment Rights and I strongly disagree with this bill Jun-13-2019

Against If you continue fights to take away gun right, in any fashion, America WIL BE eventually destroyed. We already have laws in place. So if y9u want to change anything...change the Criminal Minds!!! Good luck. Thanks, Joyce Jun-12-2019
Against This bill infringes on our 2nd Amendment Rights. This bill makes a party guilty without being n front of your accusers. Please do not sign this bill. Jun-12-2019

Against Jun-12-2019
Against Thou shall not infringe! That's exactly what you're doing sisolak. This is a bad! police can use this as a reason to search someone's house with no probable cause saying someone is unstable and then red-flagging them. Now they have the right to go into that person's premises and search it illegally. Or disgruntled family member could just make something up. Jun-12-2019
Against When governor then Commissioner Sisolak was falsely accused by a close friend of serious wrongdoing, his constitutional right to possess arms would have been suspended without due process had this law been in effect. I urge Governor Sisolak to remember what it's like for the shoe to be on the other foot and protect the rights of honest, law abiding citizens over those who aren't honest or law abiding. Don't make good people into victims of criminals & criminals themselves by the stroke of your pen without having their day in court first and having been found guilty as the constitution intends. Don't be just another constitution trampler buying votes. Don't be a bought and paid for puppet of New York's Michael Bloomberg and his extremist special interest money. Stick up for the majority of good people in Nevada, not the minority of bad people in Nevada. Sincerely, Dale Swanson Jun-12-2019
Against Governor Sisolak, VETO AB291. High-Risk Protection Orders are a clear violation of due process, specifically the Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, and a violation of Article 1, Section 11 of the Nevada Constitution. The High-Risk Protection Order process is rife for misuse and false allegations—the penalties for filing a false application are grossly insufficient. High-Risk Protection Orders represent, in effect, legalized “SWAT-ing”, where the police show up in the dead of night, unannounced, to forcibly disarm persons who have not been convicted, or even accused, of a crime. There are other means already available to handle high-risk individuals. AB 291 is bad legislation, and the citizens of Nevada do not deserve to have it imposed upon us. Please VETO AB291 Jun-12-2019
Against This Bill would put neighbor against neighbor. Rocky relationships could become withdrawals of pure Hate. Being a divorcee I would not be able to go into a new relationship 100% honest. Jun-12-2019
Against Due process is taken away from the citizen. If wrongly accused he has no recourse. Leaves a lot open to ones interpretation. Jun-12-2019
Against Please veto this bill as it is unconstitutional. Jun-12-2019
Against Please stop this bill. Jun-12-2019
Against Nevada needs to honor our constitution and second amendment more now than ever. We are surrounded by liberal fanatics, illegals and criminals. We don't need more California left wing socialist liberal regulation targeting legal gun owners and infringing on their rights to bear arms via our trusted state legislature.. What we need is a governor and leadership that will protect legal citizens and their right to keep and bear arms in the State of Nevada with no infringements. We need a place to stand and fight socialism and communism and illegal invasion. A place that will uphold and not weaken our second amendment lest we ever need it to defend our shores and liberty. Nevada needs to remain that place. Jun-12-2019
Against This has no due process and you people are trying to take away our SECOND amendment!!! it's not cool. Just fix the background loophole! it's not the guns doing the violence, it's the people!!!!! Jun-12-2019

Against AB 291 is an aborration of overreach supported by Michael Bloombergs Everytown Anti Gun Lobbyists. Nevada is a Western Starte with a huge rural presence, not an urban sprawl. We rely on our firearms for more than just open or concealed carry. They are a tool for many, protection for others. Yes, there are some additions and modifications that should be deemed unnecessary or violate normal gun making standard use but to try and create RED FLAG authoritarian edicts like Bloomberg's N.Y. bunch is trying to push through Western States or change the consistency of our laws between jurisdictions to anything goes in various jurisdictions is just wrong. We need laws that do not violate the law abiding citizens of Nevada. Enforce or make laws that affect the criminals, not tax paying/voting/informed Nevadans. The law effective in 2020 requiring gun registry for a sale between friends was already too much. Give us some credit. Good people know how to move firearms between competant owners. Families with values with weapons know how to store and handle firearms. If not, then yes, hold them accountable but don't keep forcing laws on everybody for the few that indiscriminantely ignore common sense safety. If you really want gun violence and excessive use to go down/away, then put some teeth into your laws and don't be afraid to enforce it. Use of a gun in a crime, 10 years. Discharge of a gun in a crime 20 years. Intentional death of a victim with a firearm, death to the perpetrator. Do that and see how fast criminals stop coming into Nevada and setting off firearms indiscriminantely. Until then, stop putting more restrictions on the good people of our state. Enforce current laws or put teeth into them that makes the crime unworthy of the risk or you can expect to be a ONE term governow. Jun-10-2019
Against Badly written, Not true to Nevada principles. This will result in democrats being voted out of office at the first opportunity. Jun-10-2019
Against I’d like to know why our legislature adapts and enacts laws that are brought forward by the likes of the Blumbergs of the Nation who doesn’t live here in Nevada, never will live here, and patriotic Nevadians don’t want people like him in our state, I feel like that too, Our legislators don’t represent patriotic Americans, don’t know or follow our constitution, they don’t vote in support of American citizens, they don’t respect our veterans, and they certainly don’t respect their constituents, they go against our inalienable rights, the gun laws they enact like AB 291 targets law abiding citizens instead of the criminals that break the law which effectively makes criminals out of lawful citizens, people like me that take pride in doing the righteous things always as I live my life don’t support the attitude that our so-called representatives, which the last few years have enacted laws that clearly don’t address or prevent what the law was enacted to address. Congress doesn’t want to work with facts, they won’t research the problem they just want to put another redundant law on the books. Jun-09-2019

Against Still another example of our "leaders" trying to californicate Nevada. Jun-09-2019
Against Why are you trying so hard to take away our 2nd amendment rights? We are law abiding citizens. We dont want to hurt anyone and dont want anyone to hurt us. My wife and I love to spend time at the range talking and shooting. We spend time together doing this. We enjoy each other. The problem is that you don't seem to care about us as a people. Neither did Hitler. He took the guns away from the people and then was able to kill them. Dont be that person. Jun-08-2019
Against This bill does not allow for due process. Please veto this bill Jun-08-2019
Against It voids due process and is contrary to our judicial protections. It incorporates three different statutes into one in violation of the Nevada Constitution. Contrary to testimony it would not have stopped the October 1 shootings, and its provisions are contrary to the recent background check legislation. Jun-08-2019
Against Governor Sisolak please veto this far reaching bill that seeks to infringe on our Second Amendment rights. Jun-07-2019

Against Jun-07-2019
Against the "Red Flag" language does not allow for due process of the law. A person could falesly accuse someone of so called "High-risk behavior". Once a person has their gun seized the burden of proof is on them. Jun-07-2019
Against DON'T DO IT!! Jun-07-2019
Against This bill is an attack on the Constitutional rights of the citizens of Nevada. Please veto this. Love, A native Nevadan Jun-07-2019
Against This Red Flag amendment is a violation of the presumption of innocence and our right's under the 4th Amendment. Nevada is willingly (only by way of a currently Democrat controlled State level government) becoming a police state. Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, and other past dictators and only current fellow Democrat-Socialist elite would and can be proud of this sort of government overreach. This law places police in direct confrontation with the public, the public who are made a victim by well intended but incredibly dangerous intent. What are the odds some folks won't PEACEFULLY comply with what is essentially Gestapo tactics disguised by a 24-hour court order made in absentia? In the case of firearms which are confiscated for whatever legitimate or arbitrary reason, just what financial recourse does the State provide to the collector, owner or his/her heirs or assigns? This will not end well (you think?) but the elected majority of takers of individual liberty and rights must have known and considered that carefully...ridiculous! In sum, I am left few options --move, vote, and/or advise government with my rationale, prior to the former. It appears to lay me that the Sunshine State is a better place for the exercise and enjoyment of present "dangerous freedoms" than what is likely to become Battle Born revisited. Good luck without me. Ried Bridges SSG, US Army (Retired) Jun-07-2019

Against Please consider the rights of the people of Nevada. Taking someone's firearms without due process violates our rights. We all do not condone gun violence or these horrific mass shootings. But as we can see with recent events in Virginia laws or stringent background checks (which included ATF approval and tax stamps), did nothing to prevent a random act of violence. Please stand for our rights and constitution. You took an oath to uphold the constitution. Please do that with care. Jun-07-2019
Against I am strongly opposed to this Bill for many reasons, but the most egregious issue is the 'Red Flag Law' that is included. This completely bypasses the Gun Owners' Constitutional right to Due Process. Imagine that you, Governor Sisolak, are driving home from somewhere and somewhere along the way you upset another driver on the road. They decide to call and report you as unsafe. The next thing you know is that Leo's are on your doorstep to confiscate all of your personal vehicles, even though you may not have even done anything wrong. You NEVER had the opportunity to tell your side of things, never got to defend yourself in Court, nothing. I imagine that you would be pretty upset about it and it would be absolutely unfair and ridiculous to deal with. This is the exact same process the 'Red Flag Laws' apply to Gun Owners applied to automobiles, given that automobiles end far more lives yearly than guns. I strongly urge you to Veto this completely Unconstitutional Bill. Jun-07-2019
Against Governor Sisolak, please veto this bill. With all due respect to the sponsor, AB291 is nothing more than a misguided attempt to deal with violent crime solely by infringing the rights of law-abiding citizens. This bill appears is replete with numerous procedural and substantive Due Process violations, as well as Second, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment violations and, if passed into law, may very well be headed for litigation, which the taxpayers can ill afford. I would add that there has been absolutely no evidence offered that would conclusively establish that any of the proposals in this bill would prevent the commission of any violent crimes by those predisposed to do so with firearms or other deadly weapons. The legislative focus should be on efforts to ensure that those who commit violent crimes are dealt with in accordance with the law and that the fundamental constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens are preserved and protected. This bill accomplishes neither objective. Accordingly, I would again respectfully request that you veto AB291. Jun-07-2019
Against Please dont take my rights away because of the actions of a few. It is important to maintain the values Nevadans have traditionally had. I would ask that you dont take away my ability to defend my family and what I have worked for Jun-06-2019

Against AB291 does nothing to address gun CRIME. This bill simply will create legal peril for law abiding gun owners in Nevada. This bill should be vetoed by the Governor. There is the real potential if this bill passes of making Nevada a gun mine field county by county. This is entirely unfair to gun owners in this state! Jun-06-2019

Against This is infringing in our second amendment rights. The Democrats are slowly chipping our right to bear arms. Our forefathers made sure the second amendment was placed in our constitution so we can protect ourselves. We need to protect our rights and freedoms, not give them away. Vote no to any bills which will take them away. Jun-05-2019

Against Any of the versions of this bill are reprehensible. The only portion that may be considered is the alcohol limit.

Governor do NOT sign this bill. Jun-05-2019
Against To all legislators and Governor Sisolak, You don't work for Michael Bloomberg or any of these radical progressive orgs seeking to destroy America and the Constitution.

Against I agree with some points of this bill but not others! Therefore, I oppose this bill because I am an avid supporter of the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment there within! I am a staunch supporter of self defense and the right of self defense by any means necessary including the use of a weapon in defense of oneself and family as well as friends and neighbors if the cause should arise. I, along with many friends and family enjoy modifying, creating weapons to our own liking and or just upgrading what we have to be able to shoot better, to be able to sight it in better or to be able to shoot a larger quantity of ammo by use of high capacity magazines. We "good guys" will be vilified and punished for our love of weapons while the "bad guys" won't heed the law and continue their crimes without concern. Please consider these issues and change the wording in this bill to preclude the modification and other points I haven't mentioned that would be in violation of the 2nd Amendment. Thank you! Jun-05-2019
Against This bill will recreate the utter chaos that we used to have,when gun laws were not universal .Law abiding citizens are going to become criminals.There is NO way to keep up with different gun laws throughout the many cities and counties in Nevada.Let's use some home grown common sense and quit letting out of state money and interests dictate our politics Jun-05-2019
Against No way should this be signed. Infringes on 2A. I am a USAF Gulf War Vet and do not understand how this is a "Good idea" and will not save lives. Criminals do not follow laws, you only hurt the law abiding people of this state. Jun-05-2019

Against It’s unconditional... Due Process! Jun-04-2019
Against Third party allegations are not convictions, (this is not the US Constitution, of presumed innocent until convicted). This legislation lacks strong due process protections and contains low evidentiary standards that fall well below the norm for removing fundamental constitutional rights, or even adjudicated mentally ill. Also the storage law are beyond ridicule, as we already have in place strong NV Law governing this. You are trying to make Nevada another California, why don't you go back and live there if that's what you want, people are leaving by the thousands because of their outlandish laws and taxes. Don't spread their disease here in Nevada! I am a disabled US veteran and want to be able to protect myself and my family. WE will vote you out for your biased restrictions you are trying to impose on us. Jun-04-2019
Against Oppose AB291. .We have nation with 50 states, etc. It is bad enough crossing a state line let alone considering county by county. Too many laws costs more that just the ink to print them up. Making a criminal out of everyone with this type of law, leads to many other laws seeking to protect us from everything, resulting on no one to protect from anyone including over reaching government. I have found those who enact such laws think everyone is as bad as they are. It appears they are more dangerous than the criminals they seek to protect us from. . The government that governs least still governs best!!!! Jun-04-2019
Against Above any political view, it is important to keep in mind, we still have a constitution and a bill of rights. It is without a doubt that the provisions in this bill, as written, WILL be abused - likely by the "adverse party", if not law enforcement. TPO's are abused on a daily basis - and the family court does _nothing_ to discourage it. Let's be better than the US Congress, Let's lead the way and put our heads together to come up with a bill that BOTH parties can agree on - it CAN be done! This way, we can actually achieve a REAL solution to violence - no matter the weapon of choice. Jun-04-2019
Against Gov Sisolak please veto AB 291. This bill is being funded by out of state interest. We Nevadans don't want infringements on our second amendment rights. If this passes, it is only the beginning of loosing our rights. Jun-04-2019
Against Please veto AB291, continue to work towards common sense provisions which are not vague like the proposed. Additionally AB 291 covers several subjects, is that even legal?. This law violates the 2nd but the 4th & 5th amendments to our constitution. Jun-04-2019
Against Accusations are not due process. This bill goes against our constitution. Anyone can accuse someone of anything just to have the government make their life a living hell and leave them without any protection for themselves or their family. Jun-04-2019
Against This bill in general opposes the rights of individuals who decide to spend their money on firearms, ammunition and accessories. How I chose to spend my money is my business. If I want to purchase multiple firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition so be it. That does not make me an at risk individual for potential disasters. Even if this weren’t to be a gun grab attempt I wouldn’t trust the government to Return my firearms and all my accessories. You can’t even keep illegal substances such as drugs off the streets. So what makes me think you can keep illegal firearms and accessories out of the hands of those who wish harm upon me? Absolutely nothing. The government can’t manage to keep illegal drugs out of this state, and let alone illegal guns. Doing this would allow predators to prey upon the defenseless. Jun-04-2019
Against Governor Sisolak - my request is asking you as our Governor ( The Citizens Governor ) NOT to allow AB291 to become a PARTY LINE Bill. I look to you to initiate a United Nevada and set the path moving forward for Legislation beyond Partisanship and LEAD us to Groundbreaking Innovative Legislation that speaks to the ISSUE – HOMICIDE. Please consider a veto with caveat to continue the process via a Governor appointed TASK FORCE? Respectfully submitted Jun-04-2019
Against This is a bad and ill-conceived bill that will have no impact on gun violence whatsoever. In fact, it wouldn't have prevented the Las Vegas shooting, nor will it prevent future shootings. Democrats purposely blocked and excluded many pro-2nd amendment organizations from the negotiating table. The sad thing about this bill is that it miserably fails to address the real problem that causes these terrible shootings.."Mental Health".... Jun-04-2019
Against This bill will do nothing to save lives. It only restricts law abiding citizens. Simply banning "bump stocks" is one thing, but this bill attempts to cover too much. It deserves a veto. Jun-04-2019
Against This is against our constitutional rights. It does nothing to stop or help people with mental issues. It only leaves a loop hole for false acusations and illegal confiscation. VETO AB 291 Jun-04-2019
Against Please read the Second Amendment! Jun-04-2019
Against This law violates not only the second but the 4th amendments to our constitution and is in fact illegal. We un this country never presume guilt and this bill does exactly that. It over rides out protected rights in the US Constitution which Nevada has sworn not to violate! Jun-04-2019

Against This is unconstitutional. This is just another way for you to try and take guns away from law abiding citizens. This will do nothing to keep guns out of the hands of people with ill intent. Jun-03-2019
Against I would like to draw your attention to Amendment V [1791]. "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. " The relevant bit to this steaming piece of legislation is this: ".. nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law" This legislation, as passed, fails two of the three.

Against I cannot believe such a extreme bill has been passed in Nevada. I can see a few common sense provisions, but this stuff is all smashed together into an extremist form that is incomprehensible to me. This bill will actually provide for an ex-girlfriend or roommate to abuse the power to confidentially accuse someone of 'extremism'? This is like a thought crime? I just cannot even fathom that search and seizure can even be allowed in the USA based on some feeling of someone who probably wants to cause trouble or 'get even' with someone else. Noone should have this kind of power, even law enforcement...my wife's ex-husband in a law enforcement officer who constantly filed false motions against us...he could just call in an accusation? That is way to much power for a subjective feeling on someones part. There are people who are so afraid of guns they could say they felt threatened just because you own one. Just unbelievable that my freedom-loving Nevada could come to this. Jun-03-2019

Against Please veto this bill which is contrary to the U.S. Constitution as amended. This type of legislation will only reduce the liberty of the citizens, and suspend due process under the law. This will only strip rights away from the citizens and empower the criminals. Please watch the Bill Whittle video - Virtual President on Gun Control. A great story there about tyranny, and past incident close to home on UNR campus where a citizen was unable to protect herself because of policy, and her assailant subsequently went on to murder another young woman. Uphold the constitution of Nevada and the U.S. as is your sworn duty. May God Bless America. Jun-03-2019
Against This bill must not pass. This bill could turn Nevadans into criminals with out due process. Jun-03-2019
Against AB291 is a bad bill for NV. I im against this bill. Jun-03-2019
Against AB 291 Should be vetoed on the basis of it's in violation of the United States Constitution's 2nd, 4th and 5th Amendments. Just because the author of this bill had her feelings hurt does not justify violating the peoples Constitutional rights of neglecting the due process of others and seizing property without a warrant. This will be a serious officer safety issue to law enforcement officers when trying to enforce this law while violating people's rights. This bill, if it becomes law has the potential for law enforcement abuse and unnecessary blood shed as we have seen in other states with laws similar to this one. Taking away the States preemption laws will make ordinary citizens into criminals and will tie up the courts with litigation. This Bill should be vetoed by the Governor. Jun-03-2019

Against I am against all of these items; lowering blood alcohol limits to possess firearms, outlawing trigger modifications, banning firearms in public buildings and enacting a "red flag" law. I know many law abiding concealed weapons owners and they would not be part of these items. I find it disheartening that you are passing laws from NEW YORK CITY, which we know has a high crime rate and can't have a gun permit...TRYING TO MAKE US LIKE NEW YORK OR CALIFORNIA WILL ONLY MAKE YOU LOSE IN THE NEXT ELECTION.... Passing laws for law abiding citizens only makes criminals have more rights than us. Jun-03-2019
Against Please oppose this bill. It puts illicit authority in the hands of individual citizens to violate the 2nd Amendment rights of of individual citizens. Jun-03-2019
Against Please stop taking our rights away. Jun-03-2019
Against You are sowing the seeds of tyranny in the blood of the dead. Using tragedy to disarm and control the rabble. You set the bar as low as possible in order to trap anyone in a negative interaction. This law says a court order can be issued to take someone's guns for threats of non-lethal force. Wow. WITHIN TWO YEARS, THESE DEMOCRATS WILL EXPAND THIS LAW TO ALLOW ANYONE AND EVERYONE TO FILE ONE OF THESE, NOT JUST FAMILY OR POLICE. Jun-03-2019
Against This bill is called the October 1 bill. But it would not have stopped the evil person who committed those evil acts on October 1st. Nor would anything in this bill stopped the evil person from committing those evil acts last Friday in Virginia Beach. There is no law that will stop evil people from committing evil acts. Jun-03-2019
Against I am urging you to vote against AB 291. Eliminating the state preemptions will allow municipalities to make individual gun laws more restrictive than the state. This will cause confusion on what the laws are while traveling through the state and here in Clark County. Red Flag laws have the potential to violate our right to due process. Please support our state’s and our nation’s constitutions and vote against this bill. This is a single issue voting issue for me. Jun-03-2019

Against Taking away a constitutional right is a slippery slope to be on. Elected officials have a duty to protect our rights, not chip away at them. Establish better mental health identification and treatment!! Mentally fit people don’t seek to do harm to themselves or others!! By actually supporting mental health care we can achieve a safer community. This bill will end up mired in litigation and those who need help the most still won’t get it. Folks will still have access to rope, gas, poison, and pills if they wish to self harm. I have a relative who stabbed himself in the abdomen with a kitchen knife in front of his wife and children, he died, and no gun control would have prevented that. Those seeking to harm others can still access planes, trucks, vans, knives, and have fists. I beg you to reconsider this battle and find a way to help us by helping those vulnerable to mental illness and depression. Jun-03-2019
Against Unconstitutional, this bill will not have the effect that those in favor hope for. This will not stop gun violence & mass shootings.

Against Shame on you for infringing upon the rights of law-abiding citizens. Your so-called law is completely partisan and will do absolutely nothing to protect the general public. All it does is chip away at the 2nd Amendment and my right to bear arms to protect myself from the likes of perhaps well-intentioned but fruitless legislation and legislators which I imagine makes you feel like you've made a difference. You want to make a difference? Why don't you make a concerted effort to REDUCE the over-bearance and reach of the government by eliminating 25% of the useless legislation you waste my tax dollars creating? And then vote to meet once every 3-4 years versus every 2 yrs or every year. You are the problem and we the PEOPLE, are sick of the oppression. Jun-03-2019

Against Inappropriately restrictive. Does nothing to deter offenders, only punishes those individuals that abide by the law. Jun-03-2019
Against Although the likelihood of me personally being affected by a "Red Flag" order is extremely low, if non-existent, I'm an attorney and have handled civil litigation matters where the opposing party attempted to obtain protective orders against me for 'being mean to them' in litigation (threatening with a lawsuit was 'mean', threatening them with a wage garnishment was 'mean') and somehow that translated into what they believed were adequate threats try request a TPO. I've also seen individuals in divorce cases and custody cases where the opposing party lied on a TPO request and obtained a TPO which was not extended due to us having proven, at the hearing to extend that happened ~14 days later, that the information contained in the TPO application was incorrect, improper, or flat out false. My concern, which I believe is a valid one, is that a misdemeanor is an inadequate deterrent to someone filing a false ex-parte verified petition to take away someone's firearms, just like NRS 207.280 is inadequate for filing a false police report. My other concern is that such request to a judge is ex-parte and doesn't provide the person with an opportunity to legally defend themselves before such order is put in place. By signing this bill into law, you're seemingly lowering the bar to taking away someone's constitutional rights below what it takes to have the person charged with a crime. If they're doing something illegal, charge them with a crime, have them arrested, and require, as a condition of them being bailed out or released on them surrendering their firearms until they are tried and found guilty or found not-guilty and released. The language, as written, requires a hearing so quickly that I suspect the judges will simply grant all requests by police officers and family members because the person will get a hearing soon enough, but by then the person's constitutional rights have already been violated. How do you undo that violation? Jun-03-2019
Against Governor Sisolak, Please VETO AB 291. I feel it is an infringement of my rights as a citizen of this great state and nation. People kill people no guns. Look at Chicago this weekend. 45 shootings and they have the strictest gun laws in the country. Bad people shoot others, not us who are law abiding. Again please VETO AB 291. Jun-03-2019

Against Keep Nevada gun rights the way they are and protect our constitutional rights please. Jun-03-2019
Against The proposed gun control policies will be ineffective at combating crime. Quite the opposite is true, in that you will punish legal gun owners while doing nothing to hinder the criminal element. The country as a whole can barely enforce existing gun laws, how will adding more help? Besides, murder is already illegal, backed by the most severe punishment possible. How will less severe cromes deter someone of the mindset to ignore something more consequential? Jun-03-2019
Against This is unconstitutional in so many ways! Who will monitor the tons of FALSE allegations that will be reported? Our systems are too overloaded as it is, and now this? We ALL know criminals don’t follows rules. And while the original thought of this bill may have had good intention, the result will be completely opposite. You will have ex spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, disgruntled family members etc making FALSE allegations to seek revenge or ruin people’s lives. We cannot correct every persons behavior. We have enough gun laws in place already. Leave it alone!!!! Jun-03-2019
Against You will never be able to regulate crazy. Why do democrats think mental health sufferers and criminals will give up guns or follow all these rules? They don’t and they never will. You penalize law abiding gun owners when you put laws down. My family is from denmark where there are no guns, so the same mentally ill and criminals use knives to stab tourists downtown and mug them. All you do is change the nature of the crime. More focus should be on helping mentally ill people and get them off the streets. And they are callers “accidents” for a reason, some things you cannot prevent. That is life. As a Californian moving to Nevada as a Republican I see the destruction democrat policies do to a state. People are moving to NV to get away from high taxes being squandered on ridiculous government beurocracy. We want limited government and the more you pile onto NV laws the angrier your constituents will get because people like me are going to raise hell and inform voters exactly what you are doing.

The nut job in Vegas lost 2 mil playing video poker while having little or no contact with others. Did anybody notice? Where is the demand to investigate? Where is the push to take the mentally ill off the street? Where is the push to help those that need help? Restricting the 99% of the public that pose no threat will do nothing to prevent the 1% that wants to harm us from carrying out their acts of violence whether it be with a knife, gun, car, truck, airplane, poison, or bomb. Address the problem not your emotions. Jun-03-2019
Against It violates due process, it violates 2nd amendment, it violates 4th amendment, and it violates the 5th amendment. This is a terrible bill that allows people with zero proof to strip law abiding citizens rights and leave them defenseless to protect themselves and family's lives. Jun-03-2019
Against The passage of AB 291 is proof that the 2019 Clark County Legislature has no regard for the former state of Nevada. Beside the fact that it in it's form violates the Nevada Constitution some of it's far too broad provisions also violate the US Constitution.

Against I am sending a brief message in opposition of AB291. Quite frankly, I have had enough of all you Californians coming here and destroying my home state. These latest awful bills (the gun registration bill sold as background checks was the other) are the last straw. You are just standing on the bodies of the Mandalay Bay event to further your political career. I work as a registered nurse and quite frankly I am very good at it. I will be leaving Nevada and taking my skill set with me as will many, many other health care professionals I know and work with. One our neighbors such as Utah, Arizona, or Wyoming could certainly use more health care professionals such as myself. Also, I will be preferring to live in a state that doesn't hate freedom the way Nevada does nowadays. Jun-02-2019
Against This bill needs revision to offer specifics to protect citizens due process and ability to comply with the law.

"original receipt" needs clarification. Section 12, 3. , (3.An ex parte order may be issued with or without notice to the adverse party).This section violates the fifth and fourteenth amendment to the US Constitution for due process in that it states "without notice". It also violates Section 8, 5. under the Nevada Constitution Declaration of Rights. (5. No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.) As portions of this bill are vague, violate due process, and violate the Nevada Declaration of Rights I cannot support this bill. Jun-02-2019

Against Please do not pass this bill along with its amendments. I believe it is a person’s right to own and carry guns for their use and protection. I as a young woman would not feel safe if I could not protect myself against others who would pose harm to me. Laws are usually only followed by law abiding citizens. Criminals who will do wrongful acts do not listen to nor follow restrictive gun laws. This bill would not be productive step toward public safety. Jun-01-2019
Against PLEASE protect our 2nd Amendment rights. Do not pass this bill especially with its amendments. I am a native Nevadan and strongly believe in our rights to have guns for hunting, protection, and enjoyment. This law threatens the very intent of our 2nd Amendment and opens the door to restrict and punish law abiding citizens with little due process. It is imperative to not pass this bill for all the rural Nevadans that regularly use and rely on their guns. Please don’t only listen to the Clark County population. Those of us in the less populated areas deserve to have a voice too. We also deserve to live our lives as we have for generations - very peaceful, law abiding gun owning citizens. Jun-01-2019
Against To all members of the 2019 Nevada Legislature: AB291 has been passed entirely along party lines. It has been financed (along with several members of the legislature), by out of state money that was provided for the sole purpose of bringing gun control laws in any form into being. Despite overwhelming rejection by Nevada citizens on the the legislative opinion site, it was passed anyway. The manner in which the final version was finally presented was also something Democrats can be proud of. AB291 is poorly written, it will do little if anything to provide increased gun safety and it will surely produce unintentional law breakers where law abiding citizens once were. But what the heck? Any gun control is better than no gun control, right? I sincerely hope there are members of this congress with enough self respect left to finally reject this piece of junk rather than send it to the governor. Respectfully, Robert Dixon Las Vegas Jun-01-2019

Against I survived two head on collisions and am now collecting a social security check. These accidents have left me with multiple surgeries and I am riddled with arthritis. I am too old to run and too young to die. By reducing the trigger pull on my hand gun I am better able to control my shot. Hand guns are now being made for women, but some still have a rather hard trigger pull. A reduced trigger pull will reduce the stress on my hands, arms and shoulders. I shoot with both hands. This will also ensure an accurate target hit. I train on a regular basis with other women in our area. Jun-01-2019

Against This shameful legislation [AB291] treats all law abiding Nevadan gun owners as dangerous, undesirable people. This unjust legislative subterfuge releases unjust "Red Flag" laws upon the populous. Totalitarian by nature; replacing due process with secret courts, due process be damned. The legislatures know the people would not approve thus why they added this amendment onto AB291 immediately before a vote, leaving no time to review.

Against This bill, and the whole idea of "gun violence restraining orders" seems to clearly violate the Constitutional concepts of due process, innocent until proven guilty, and the right to face one's accuser. It establishes a justice system similar to that portrayed in the movie "Minority Report", where a department of "pre-crime" arrests people before the crime happens, thus violating their rights. This can also easily become a tool of harassment for ex-spouses, disgruntled coworkers and others to use the force of law to punish someone they don't like. The other provisions in this bill are also feel good legislation which will do nothing but penalize otherwise law abiding citizens. Please oppose AB291. Thank you, Lawrence Stein Jun-01-2019

Against We are relocating from New Jersey to Nevada in July to escape this very type of misguided, draconian gun legislation against law-abiding gun owners! This bill creates "Red Flag/Pre-Crime Protective Orders" that allow for the removal of a person's constitutional rights (as reaffirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court under Heller) not because a person has been convicted of any crime or adjudicated mentally ill, but instead solely on third party allegations. This legislation lacks strong due process protections and contains low evidentiary standards that fall well below the norm for removing fundamental constitutional rights. Further, there is no legal recourse against anyone who unjustly causes such forfeiture. This bill also imposes mandatory storage requirements that would expand Nevada's current law regulating firearm storage by imposing a one-size-fits-all government standard that requires firearms to be made unavailable for self-defense. It also criminalizes "Certain Firearm Modifications." With the amendments, this legislation remains broader than existing federal regulations, and would criminalize certain modifications on semi-automatic firearms. Violations of this section would result in felony penalties. Jun-01-2019
Against Please, Please, Do not pass this bill. The bill does nothing to stop gun violence. It only effects legal gun owners. What good is a weapon locked up in a safe when the bad guy comes thru the front door?

Knives, hammers, stones, axes and lots of tools are at the disposal of the criminal mind. Why blame Guns? Jun-01-2019
Against We should not have out rights taken away unless convicted of a crime! Jun-01-2019
Against Not one of the Nevadans I have spoken to about this agrees with this bill. This bill is a major overreach by the legislators to no positive effect. It violates Nevada's state preemption of law by providing for counties to pass laws which are more restrictive than state laws. It also bypasses constitutional due process and provides for "guilty until proven innocent" actions against firearm owners including the taking of personal property without probable cause. Further, it provides for these actions and more to be taken against citizens of this state at the whim of a single disgruntled or vindictive person's word without evidence of proof of the claim being made against him or her.

Against The elimination of due process under the so called "red flag" provision is extremely dangerous. We should be a nation of laws, not a nation of hysteria. If citizens can lose their rights if no crime was committed, we are no better than North Korea, or other third world dictatorships. This also enables racial profiling, as civil rights can be taken away based on pure appearance, regardless if a crime does not occur. Seriously, what's next? Will the government take someone's car away, because a random third party accuser may think the driver may have an alcoholic beverage? Will the government take away free speech, because a random third party accuser may think the person may yell fire in a crowded theater? If this provision passes, this is no longer America, where citizens have the right to due process. Shame on those who vote for this. Jun-01-2019

Against I could loose my 2nd Amendment rights because someone thinks I am a danger with a firearm. What about due process? May-31-2019
Against Unconstitutional May-31-2019
Against The Right to Keep and Bear Arms should not be treated as a second-class right and should only be restricted consistent with the constitutional requirements of due process. AB 291 contains language even more broad and overreaching than existing federal regulations and could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers or ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability. Expanding Nevada's current law regulating firearm storage by imposing a one-size-fits-all government standard would require law-abiding citizens make firearms unavailable for self-defense without any consideration for their personal circumstances. Additionally, the oppressive Red Flag amendment violates the very foundation of our justice system as spelled out in our Constitution. I am a retired peace officer having served Sparks, Reno and Washoe County for thirty-six years. I can tell you without reservation that the enactment of this law will create a crisis of conscience for the vast majority of our law enforcement community. In creating and enforcing laws, one should NEVER subscribe to the concept of "the end justifies the means." In the case of this legislation however, the irony is that those legislators who are comfortable with such a concept will not attain the end they envision. This law, while creating criminals out of thousands of law abiding citizens will not deter a single real lawbreaker bent on committing a violent act. May-31-2019
Against I was not aware this was even happening. Unfortunately, I can’t just show up to voice my opinion, I work and have responsibilities. This bill needs to be VETOED.

Against AB291 now has a 'red flag amendment'. In some cases, this could be a good idea, but it's too easy to get it wrong. Making it a one-size-fits-all, over-reaching law impinges on the rights of law-abiding citizens, especially without due process. What if a disgruntled employee or an ex-wife or an angry neighbor or you-name-it decide someone is unfit to own a firearm. No due process and the claims could be completely false, yet what must the accused go through to prove his innocence after he's first been deemed guilty WITHOUT DUE PROCESS? The Parkland, FL shooter exhibited dangerous behavior and could have been stopped had his firearms been taken away. However, bad guys or crazy guys will always find a way to get firearms if that's their intention, judicial prohibitions be damned. This would have done nothing to stop the Las Vegas shooter on Oct. 1, 2018. He had no weird or suspicious behavior and was completely under the radar. Please vote NO on AB291 as it will be deleterious to law-abiding firearm owners. May-31-2019
Against I urge you to vote no on AB291. This is an overstep by the government stepping on our constitutional right to bear arms. Don't let the minimal amount of crimes that are committed using guns affect the millions of Americans that properly store and use their firearms. Thank you, May-31-2019
Against As a life long NEVADA resident and a responsible gun owner I strongly urge Governor Sisolak to Beto AB291. The language is too vague and will leave the options wide open for any judge or court justice to dean somebody a danger and issue a court order to have their firearms removed without due process. This is very unconstitutional and therefore I feel that the Governor has no choice but to veto. May-31-2019
Against Ladies and Gentlemen of the Senate Judiciary Committee: Having read the subject bill and amendment 1027 I object to three areas as follows: 1) The bill is wordy and repetitive so perhaps I missed it but I find no provision in the amendment that allows a person under an ex parte or extended order to have a confiscated firearm restored to his or her possession. Any time a government entity confiscates a private citizen’s property there must be such a provision. 2) It is recognized that the majority of legislators are from population centers so perhaps the realities of rural life are not totally comprehended. The provision that a child under the age of 18 cannot be in possession of a firearm unless under the control of an adult need to be reviewed. For instance it may at times be necessary for a child’s safety in a rural area for that child to be able to use a firearm loaded with snake shot to repel a rattlesnake whether or not an adult is immediately present. 3) The requirement to store firearms in a safe (presumably locked) obviates any self defense possibility in the case of a home invasion or other intrusion. It has been documented that an intruder requires two seconds to enter and find the residents of a home. Even if a safe were at the resident’s bed, his computer table, his tv armchair there are no safes that I am aware of that can be accessed in less than 2 seconds, keeping in mind that the surprised resident has also to register the threat and react. Most people concerned about their safety keep their firearm on their person or in a place accessible to them in less than two seconds. This section needs to be reviewed with the safety of the residents in mind. Please do not pass this bill without seriously considering the environment of rural areas and of persons who may fall victim to a home invasion or intrusion. Thank you. Barbara C. Havens Gardnerville, NV May-31-2019

Against I oppose AB291. It voids due process and is contrary to our judicial protections. It incorporates three different statutes into one in violation of the Nevada Constitution. Contrary to testimony it would not have stopped the October 1 shootings, and its provisions are contrary to the recent background check legislation. It is regrettable to remind members of the Legislature that they swore an oath to “…support, protect and defend the Constitution and Government of the United States, and the Constitution and government of the State of Nevada, against all enemies, whether domestic or foreign, and that I will bear true faith, allegiance and loyalty to the same…” What part of the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment “…shall not be infringed…” do you not understand? The assault on the Second Amendment by state legislatures and the Congress needs to end...now. I am quite sure that if Thomas Jefferson and our other Founding Fathers — especially those patriots who signed the Declaration of Independence or the United States Constitution — were with us today, there would not be the smell of tea in Boston Harbor, but the smell of burnt powder over the Potomac. Your actions shame yourselves and embarrass your constituents. May-31-2019
Against Do not sell out our Right to Keep and Bear Arms and our rights to due process with this red flag law. It allows family, someone you are dating, or police to say you are a danger to yourself or others and confiscate your firearms without notice or a hearing.While I appreciate the concern for public safety, confiscating firearms without notice or a hearing opens a door that I, for one, do not want opened. When I was single in Nevada for several years, I was briefly in a relationship with a man who I ended up seeking a protective order against. I was fearful at that time and appreciated that I had access to weapons in the event that he tried anything. I would not have liked him being able to tell authorities that I was a danger to myself or others and request my weapons be taken from me. From the crazy stories he told about me (I have copies of them), I wouldn't put it past him. Please don't open that door. I don't know where he is these days but I would hate to put that woman in jeopardy. Thank you for listening. May-31-2019

Firearms are NOT the PROBLEM .... ANY mechanisms used to inflict pain, suffering, death and mass destruction can be the problem that in law referenced as the Weapon or Instrument. Let us not forget a MOTORIZED VEHICLE was the INSTRUMENT of choice for the heinous crime of 1980 Thanksgiving Day killing of six people and injuring to 23 in Reno.

Against This bill is an infraction of due process stated as a right in the 5th amendment.

Against This would make people felons overnight if this bill is passed. I have owned guns since I was 11 years old. I have never killed anyone. If this passes then NV will be dictatorship. May-31-2019
Against This "red flag" part of the bill violates my 5th amendment because this is taking property away based on hear-say alone. The second part of the bill, firearm modification leaves much open to interpritation. If a target shooter adjusts the trigger pull to be lighter, is that in violation? Could it be misconstrued as increasing the rate of fire? I think it could land a lot of target shooter in jail. The storage part of the bill infringes on the second amendment because it requires a person to provide "safe storage" as outlined in the bill. Why do politicians want to restrict firearms so bad when they are not the biggest killer of Americans. Why all the hate of "assault rifles" when hammers and blunt objects kill more people year after year (according to the FBI), the data is not hard to find. Pleas opposes this bill because it only affects law abiding citizens and will never stop evil people from doing evil things. Have a great day, and again please vote to oppose AB 291 May-31-2019

Against The "red flag" provisions are outright Unamerican. If a person is so dangerous as to warrant having their firearms even temporarily seized and being prohibited from possessing or purchasing any more, then it stands to reason that there is sufficient probable cause to have them arrested and charged with something and/or subjected to a mental health hold. If not, then there is no justification for taking their guns.---The semi-auto "fire rate increase" ban section should be named after the October 1 shooter since he apparently gets to determine our rights by proxy (and beyond the grave). This will have no public safety benefit at all.---I don't really care too much about the BAC provision, but do wonder why it has to be there - was there some problem with people carrying while .08-.09 that never made the news?---The child access prevention portion needs some language protecting parents from prosecution if their child uses their gun in self-defense.

This is my state it is battle born as am I this fight is not over. Veto this bill kill this bill it is not right for this state this is an infringement on my constitutional 2nd amendment rights.

Against Keep in mind we elect you. If you think of passing this I can all but guarantee you will never even serve as a crossing guard in nevada again as you will be voted down and we will elect someone with brains to repeal this clear violation of our rights in the worst way possible. No right to bear arms no due process no right to face your acuser how many other rights can you piss on in one single stupid bill that has been proven to prevent nothing by every study done so far. This will be the end of your career in this state you will have to transfer to the united republic of the peoples california to ever serve again and we will elect someone to repeal it as fast as we can. The people have spoken May-30-2019
Against Senator Hammond, Please vote no on this unconstitutional bill, as red flag laws are dangerous to many innocent, law abiding citizens. Also, prohibiting modifications will do nothing to increase nor ensure the safety of citizens in Nevada. Passing this bill will make residing in Nevada more dangerous to law abiding gun owners. Please vote no, Senator. - Bret Bradshaw May-30-2019
Against I firmly and vehemently oppose this legislaton. You have no right to restrict my ownership of firearms. Where I store them, how I store them or how I carry them.

Against The burden this bill will cause the law-abiding citizen is unreasonable. To halt or reduce crime, the criminals should bear the responsibility. This bill will, as all gun control bills do, ignore the criminal element and punish the law-abiding citizen. Red Flag bills have always pit the law-abiding citizen against the police. Why? What are the safeguards? Home invasion in the middle of the night IS NOT AMERICAN. Please, vote NO on this bill. May-30-2019
Against To have your guns confiscated as revenge by an x wife, disgruntled neighbor or employee is just SO WRONG and unamerican it defies belief! The Bureaucrats will steal or trash your collection and you will get back rusty,scratched up & broken property if they are ever returned. We don't need these new gun laws, we need to enforce the laws already on the books, this is "feel good " legislation brought on by the misguided Democratic party & Mayor Bloomberg of New York. His reelection donations are obvious here. It's time to listen to the Nevada citizens who voted for you , Don't turn Nevada into "Eastern California".

Against while this type bill sounds great in theory there are some questions that need to be answered. What level of evidence must be presented to the court to be granted a protective order? Reasonable suspension or probably cause? What steps have been taken to protect a gun owners constitutional rights. Not simply 2nd amendment, but 4th and 5th as well. What about due process, can you take someones property from someone who has not been charged or convicted of a crime? Does that person have to prove in court they are not a danger or must the state prove beyond reasonable doubt they are. Will the state pay for a persons lawyer to defend against this protective order. Doesn't this put an unfair burden on the poor or elderly living on a fixed income? Can a person or police be sued for filing false or incomplete information with the court May-30-2019

Against I STRONGLY OPPOSE this bill May-30-2019
Against This bill goes against the constitution of the usa and nevada state. There are to many holes for things to happen to the good people of nevada, does nothing to keep firearms out of the hands of the criminal and does nothing to protect the law abiding citizens. You people that are running the government for this state need to act like grown adults and stop letting money and fear influence you. It's time to put on your boy/girl pants and take a stand and do what is right for the great people of nevada May-30-2019
Against At best you have combined a possibly good (though flawed) concept with some downright stupid ones. And now it's all or nothing. The senate knows full well that this bill will do nothing to prevent crime but will certainly produce criminals out of heretofore law abiding citizens. This bill (and several of the members of the legislature) appears to have been bought and paid for by powerful out of state interests and money. I can hardly believe the manner in which this has been cobbled together, extended, amended and presented at the last minute in its final form. And apparently, it will be passed into law in total disregard of the ratio of In Favor vs Against opinions you have received. I hope you folks are proud of yourselves. May-30-2019

Against I am against the "red flag" language of this bill. Having lived through a situation with a life-long friend's life in danger from a soon-to-be ex-husband, I can only imagine the damage done and the danger to life in a domestic violence situation when the law allows a "friend" or "family" member to report someone and their 2nd amendment rights being revolved without due process. I've have lived in fear for a friend and she had the right to self-defense. The thought that this could be the norm for me or anyone raises all the "red-flags" within me.

Against There are many reasons to be against the amended version of the bill, including: * On substance - >The amendment takes away a citizen's due process rights.

Against I do not support the red flag attachment to this bill and also do not support further restrictions on gun laws in Nevada. None of the restrictions in this bill would have actually prevented the events of Oct 1, 2017 in Las Vegas, and criminals who intend to harm people don’t follow the law.

Against Most unconstitutional law ever. Violates the 4th amendment. People should be secure and presumed innocent. Any person one has a conflict with will be able to get an order that would force law enforcement to temporarily seize ones firearms on the word of someone else. Then put cops in danger to retrieve them. All this nonsense without any consideration on how many people lie to get others in trouble. Let's not forget that criminals have the 5th amendment protection and they will never comply. So, all this to again hinder the lawabiding. I ve been a police officer for 30 years and I don't agree with a blatant violation of citizens rights to make yourselves feel better. May-30-2019
Against This bill is bad law. It has tremendous potential for abuse with the red flag portion included. Mere allegations could result in unconstitutional seizure of firearms or worse. Terrible legislation. Shame on you Nevada Democrats for being bought and paid for by Bloomberg. May-30-2019
Against Regulating the transfer, sale, purchase, possession, carrying, ownership, transportation, storage, registration and licensing of firearms, firearms accessories and ammunition is an infringement of 2nd Amendment rights. Nevada doesn't need to follow California or New York's restriction of the 2nd Amendment. May-30-2019

Contrary to testimony it would not have stopped the October 1 shootings, and its provisions are contrary to the recent background check legislation. It is also poor politics to wait until the last minute to notify the public on the day before the vote to enable them to voice their opposition to this ridiculous bill.

Against This bill is against our constitutional rights May-30-2019
Against All laws prohibiting or limiting guns of any kind are unconstitutional! You know what should actually be introduced into law? We should hold Politicians who vote on bills personally responsible for any injustes or deficiencies that may occur as a result of their vote. Also an exit strategy for any law that doesn't perform as promised within one year of implementation. That way, ineffective laws are removed from the books. May-30-2019
Against Vote NO on this bill (AB 291) because it violates our 2nd Amendment Rights. I can guarantee that it as well as any other bill that violates the 2nd Amendment will be challenged in the courts.bthis will cost the tax payers of Nevada monies that can be better spent on Health and Education. It will not eliminate or reduce the violence committed by Criminals or Unstable Persons. This bill is just another way of attempting to create Gun Control. This and other bills of this kind will make Criminals of Law Abiding Citizen. If it was a bill that would accomplish what the supporters say, it would be Supported by the Majority of Law Enforcement Agencies. Which it is not. VOTE NO NOW OR THE VOTERS WILL HAVE A SAY IN THE NEXT ELECTION! May-30-2019
Against Unconstitutional! I can tell you first hand my family will not be infringed upon and we will protect our rights at all costs. This will do more harm than good.

Maybe when you start to get sued because people cannot protect themselves You Will Open Your Eyes May-30-2019
In Favor As a long-time Nevada Resident and gun owner, I view guns the same way I view motor vehicles–when used properly by qualified operators, they are tremendously useful, but used improperly, or by unqualified operators, also potentially dangerous. We have qualifying tests, licensing and insurance requirements to operate motor vehicles, and if someone has abused the use of a motor vehicle or demonstrated they cannot safely operate same, their privilege may be restricted or removed for general public safety. I feel firearms should be treated with the same regard and scrutiny. I am strongly in favor of passing AB291 May-30-2019

May-30-2019
Against Do you remember your oath's of office? Where did you hear that you have the authority to pass laws that destroy principles, language of, the Constitution of USA? Shall not infringe means nothing to you, due process means nothing to you. Well it does to many Nevadans, and your actions show they mean nothing to you as well. Automobiles kill and injure many, why not abolish them in the State? Mental illness causes a great deal of harm, on both the patients and their families, why not do more to help them? I am tired of legislators who think the have a mandate to save the world, who believe they know ALL, and can do ALL, to save the world from itself. Another Nevadan said it best, '...no one''s life, or liberty, is safe when the legislator's are are in session...' May-30-2019
Against As a fellow resident of Nevada, I urge you to please oppose Assembly Bills 291 and 153. The state firearms preemption laws have ensured that Second Amendment rights remain equally protected across the whole state. Repealing them would result in Nevadans having different rights based on where they reside by creating a confusing patchwork of laws across the state. AB 291 contains language even more broad and overreaching than existing federal regulations and could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers or ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability. So called “gun-free zones” only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless against criminals who simply ignore such arbitrary boundaries. AB 153 would expand Nevada's current law regulating firearm storage by imposing a one-size-fits-all government standard that requires firearms to be made unavailable for self-defense. Again, please oppose AB 291 and AB 153. Thank you. May-30-2019
Against I strongly suppose this bill. We do not need outsiders paying for and pushing agendas in OUR state. Listen to your constituents! The majority of Nevadans OPPOSE this bill!!!!! May-30-2019

Against Restricting gun provisions has never stopped violence. Facts show that. States with less restrictions have the lowest crime. May-30-2019
Against I urge you to vote against AB291 for the following reasons. It has no due process. It allows far overreach to both people who might have a grudge against you, as well as to the government agencies. Any gun laws that restrict law abiding citizens from owning/keeping/bearing firearms is a huge danger to our society, our freedoms and our ability to protect and defend ourselves.. Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper very accurately said "If violent crime is to be curbed, it is ONLY the intended victim who can do it. The felon does not fear the police, and he fears neither Judge nor jury. Therefore what he must be taught is to fear his victim." If more and more guns are taken away from good, American citizens, there will be no deterrent for violent criminals (who will ALWAYS have guns) to NOT do heinous and terrible things to anyone they want to, since they will know that you and I can't protect ourselves and our families. Just look at what is happening in Venezuela right now. They took guns away from their citizens just 7 years ago. Truly free people don't need permission to bear arms. It is a bedrock principle of our great nation. Thank you for your support, Brad Lindstrom Sr. May-30-2019

It complete VOIDS DUE PROCESS with is not only ill moral but illegal last I checked. Lastly this bill does nothing but penalize legal gun owners, little secret for you Criminals don’t follow laws no matter how many new junk ones you pass.

Against NO! THIS IS AMERICA, LAND OF THE FREE!!!!! May-30-2019
Against The website says Nevada Legislature, the peoples branch of government. Why arent you listening to the people? AB291 does nothing to stop crimes related to firearms. How about enforcing current laws on the books for prosecutions? How about tackling mental health issues that cause mass shootings? Why is it that when someone commits acts of atrocities with a firearm, good people are punished? I want answers as much as you do, but emotions should not overrule common sense and logic, and stripping people of due process and their rights! Good people will fight anyone who are pushing these bills, and has accepted Bloomberg money. You have used unethical tactics, and practices not related to good governance! Fulfill your oaths and protect the rights of the people! May-30-2019
Against The red flag amendment, added quite dishonorably, has not stop shootings from mentally unstable people (see latest California shooting), places citizens and police in danger (see Maryland man killed by police using red flag law), will not stop suicides (we should use already in place psych orders if it's that serious), and is a full assault on our rights to due process and our second amendment rights. This bill is ripe for abuse and could be used to target minorities and other underprivileged people. Accusations are not enough to confiscate our property. May-30-2019
Against This bill voids due process and is contrary to our judicial protections. It incorporates three different statutes into one in violation of the Nevada Constitution. Contrary to testimony it would not have stopped the October 1 shootings, and its provisions are contrary to the recent background check legislation. "Cramming" these three separate issues into one bill and not having "specific definitions" of what it all means seems to be a very shady way of trying to address anything, not just gun control. Furthermore, it gives the impression that being "fair and just" isn't really important to those who had written/submitted/proposed the bill in the first place. Only that they want to incapacitate lawful owners as much as possible and by any means possible, even it means employing sneaky, underhanded and intentionally vague "laws". How could anyone with a conscience even consider voting for this without further clarity?...Unless of course, they too do not really care? May-30-2019
Against Bastardizing the 2nd, 5th, and 14th Amendments of the US CONSTITUTION! Bastardizing the Nevada Constitution! Pure tyranny ! May-30-2019
In Favor May-30-2019
Against This bill would not do any to stop the crimianals from getting weapons of any kind. It wqill not do anything or very little to stop suicide, as people will find other ways to commit sucide. As far as for the RED FLAG part all this will do is get people killed when the police try to take awY SOMEONES weapons, this has already happened, and it will happen again. Asfar as the safe storage part again this will make it easier for the criminal, and will not help the law abiding citizen of the state of Nevada. There is no reason to to change the states preemption of authority. Again all this bill is going to do is hurt the law abiding citizens of Nevada, and empower the criminals. May-30-2019

May-30-2019
Against This is to let you know that I am firmly against the addition of “red flag” language to AB 291. As a concerned Nevada Citizen I am troubled by the amount of pressure you are receiving from out-of-state gun-control groups to pass AB 291. Vote NO on this bill which is a direct violation of our rights and due process and makes citizens guilty until proven innocent. May-30-2019

Against Another infringement of the 2nd amendment, if you feel this should be passed you should step down and find someone who is actually supporting our constitution. This is broad and overreaching. Public safety has no stance in modifications of a semiautomatic firearm, the bump stocks have already been banned, any modification to a firearm to make it automatic is already illegal, any modification that is currently legal should be left alone as modifications to firearms within the law are largely for comfort in spot shooting. Limiting any modification is more Californication of Nevada, this ideas and bill are ruining this great state. May-30-2019

How are law abiding citizens suppose to keep track of different guns laws in different counties. This could lead to abuse. 3. Are you looking at how a gun confiscation bill could be abused by the system. This is a 1% problem in this country. You would do better to require mental health professionals to report individuals at risk. May-30-2019

Against It appears that you are pushing this bill forward without public disclosure of the contents. From what little I know about it ....why should the folks living in Nye County enjoy better and more Civil rights, Civil Liberties, and Constitutional Rights than those in Clark County. Removing the preemption statutes would be blatantly unconstitutional as would the any Red Flag law that bypasses due process. As for being able to make no changes to a firearm ....doe that mean I can't convert a semiautomatic rifle to fire by bolt action and no longer be semiautomatic? How does any of this make us safer? Can I refinish a scratched, worn or rusted firearm to approve its rust resistance and appearance? Laws need to be made by people who know what the hell they are doing, and not by rank amateurs that got somehow elected. This entire bill will be overturned once it is challenged in court. So why not spend time on actually improving safety instead of pretending to do so? Should this pass my course is simple. I will take my business and every employee out of Nevada to somewhere that the US Constitution is honored and observed,. I'm all for safety ..especially firearms safety. This bill does absolutely nothing to improve safety, and if passed makes the average person in Clark County more defenseless and much less safe if the County Commission's declared proposed actions should this pass become a reality.

Against Banning bump stocks and lowering the BAC is not what I am against. What I am against is the “red flag” laws being implemented in this bill. Law abiding citizens can now be stripped of their right to own a firearm with no due process. This is absurd and a direct violation of our second amendment. Just because you don’t like someone one, now you can falsify a report and strip them of their right? Who’s checking whether the claim is valid? If you’re wrong what are you going to do to fix it for the former accused? There is too much crammed into one bill that is written in a vague manner. As a law abiding citizen who has gone through classes and received the proper permits and paid taxes to earn my right, I wholeheartedly disagree with this bill. I hope our share my concern and kill this bill so it can be readdressed and rewritten without punishing the law abiding citizen of this great state. Thank you. May-30-2019
Against This bill was amended and passed in a procedure that is the very contrast of transparency. Being released in amended form less than an hour before hearing. It goes against everything this nation's foundations were built upon. Effectively making officials rulers, and citizens unable to voice their objections in a timely manner. It was also brought to light that many of our local officials were paid by NYC billionaire Michael Bloomberg, whom I'm very familiar with with having been born and raised in NYC. One of the reasons I left was to get away from a city where officials felt they were royalty. Now I'm here in a new city I which I love. Wondering why a NYC elitist has a hand in my local governance. What are their interests? I'm especially upset with the red flag confiscation orders. They are simply the greatest perversion to the concepts of "due process", and "innocent until proven guilty". Upon which our nation was built on. The burden of proof should always be on the state, and not on the citizen. To change that is to burn the constitution that protects every citizen, at the whims of the state. May-30-2019
Against The confiscation of firearms violates the 2nd Amendment. There is a lot of gray area regarding the process as well. I can agree with the banning bump stocks (there's really no need for them), lowering the legal BAC while carrying outside your home, and penalizing someone/parent for not storing a firearm properly in a locked case. To many children/toddlers are accidentally getting hurt to a parents' negligence. May-29-2019

Against This is my constitutional right and to pass this bill without citizen vote or knowledge is against the Constitution .

Against Dear Sir or Ma’am: I am writing to urge you to vote against the bill AB291. This bill infringes on the rights of gun owners to keep and bear arms. Moreover, this bill allows guns to be taken away from “suspected” dangers. While this may sound good, it, in reality, circumvents the Constitutional requirement for trial by peers and fair conviction before punishing a person for a crime. Furthermore, this bill does not even require a crime to have been done in order for a gun to be taken from its legal owner. It only requires suspicion and a report from someone. This aspect leaves this bill vulnerable to abuse from government authorities and from those seeking to disarm potentially responsible, law abiding gun owners. For these and other reasons I urge you to vote no on bill AB291 and other such bills. Thank you. May-29-2019

Against Another treasonous attempt to take our 2nd amendment rights away. Shame on you democrats and gov sisolak the snake. May-29-2019
Against I strongly urge all freedom-minded Nevadans to oppose the purported "gun control" measures being advanced in our state legislature and urge all Nevada legislators to likewise oppose them and to change their views concerning the efficacy of increased governmental interference in citizens' inalienable Second Amendment rights. First, history amply proves that these types of "gun control measures" so frequently espoused and imposed by leftist elements of our society do not work, regardless of how they are labeled. The problem with "gun control" by governmental fiat is that it infringes upon the rights OF THOSE WHO OBEY THE LAW while having ZERO EFFECT ON LAWBREAKERS AND CRIMINALS. The most "gun controlled" liberal jurisdictions are the most severely affected by gun violence---as are "gun free zones" which attract violent criminals who seek to avoid resistance to their crimes. Second, "gun control" legislation is mere posturing and does nothing to advance either safety or security, and instead serves only to inordinately increase governmental power and add to bureaucracy at the expense of law-abiding taxpayer citizens. Our rights under the Second Amendment are inalienable. Legislators must fulfill their oaths of office by protecting instead of infringing upon the rights of Nevada constituents. May-29-2019

Against Today's hearing on AB291 was delayed so some members of the Senate Judiciary Committee could get copies of the 6-page amendment. So how is it the Nevada Independent was writing about the amendment yesterday at 1:50 p.m. and during testimony an ACLU representative complained they only got it 24 hours in advance? Shame on the Chair Nicole Cannizarro for not getting the amendment to ALL the committee members yesterday when it was getting distributed to the media and potentially supportive organizations. Those of us opposed were not aware of today's hearing until late yesterday afternoon. Consequently, a small number of us showed up. Those supporting the amendment turned out slightly better. However, on the Legislative website, those opposed were about 3000 this morning with only 500 writing in support of the bill. This was very unprofessionally handled. May-29-2019
Against AB 291 TO: Senate Judiciary Committee PLEASE oppose this bill. May-29-2019

Against I resent the high handed way this bill has been handled. Short notice to the opposition being just sooooo unamerican. This legislature has ramrodded thru several bills without the public being given adequate notice and chance to either support or oppose. You have emasculated the State of Nevada by passing the bill that does away with the Founding Fathers version of the Electoral college. We are no longer a swing state. No one will care how Nevadans vote, we are irrelevant. Do not now try to undermine the 2nd amendment. We will remember this legislature and oppose those who make it up. It is so unworthy of you to attach legislations you know are against conservative values to legislation that is worthy of everyones support. It is dirty pool. Or is it the swamp?

Against I oppose the bill because ceding authority to counties creates a patchwork of differing laws making it likely for our fellow Nevada residents to cross county boundaries to become immediate lawbreakers. Our preemption laws have worked well to insure uniformity of process. Please keep them that way! Also, the proposed red flag amendment deprives citizens of due process and relies upon third party reporting--thus opening a way for nuisance reporting or harassment complaints by them against gun owners.

Against This bill is vaguely written, open to interpretation, has the potential to strip citizen of the right to due process under the Constitution, will strip law abiding citizens of their constitutionally protected right, and has the potential to turn law abiding citizens into criminals for their legally owned property. Please stop this bill May-29-2019
Against As a fellow Nevada resident, I urge you to please oppose Assembly Bill 291 and any other gun control concepts that may be amended to it. The Right to Keep and Bear Arms should not be treated as a second-class right and should only be restricted consistent with the constitutional requirements of due process. AB 291 contains language even more broad and overreaching than existing federal regulations and could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers or ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability. So called “gun-free zones” only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless against criminals who simply ignore such arbitrary boundaries. Expanding Nevada's current law regulating firearm storage by imposing a one-size-fits-all government standard would require law-abiding citizens make firearms unavailable for self-defense without any consideration for their personal circumstances. The state firearms preemption laws have ensured that Second Amendment rights remain equally protected across the whole state. Repealing them would result in Nevadans having different rights based on where they reside by creating a confusing patchwork of laws across the state. Again, please oppose AB 291 and any other gun control concepts that may be amended to it. Thank you May-29-2019
Against 1) false accusers face no deterrent or penalty against false accusations, and society is showing increasingly less trustworthiness, with even people in high visibility places, ie media, politicians etc demonstrating no shame in lying. citizens need laws to PROTECT AGAINST their rights & freedoms being diminished, not laws like this that will further encroach against basic rights and freedoms. 2) "clear indication" of red-flaggabiliy is TOO SUBJECTIVE. people can't be trusted not to abuse this opportunity. NO on this bill. May-29-2019
Against No on AB 291! May-29-2019
Against The focus on restricting what people can own appears to me to violate the Constitution as though the whole concept of firearms could be eliminated from the human experience. Not possible. If these restrictions truly violate the Constitution they also violate many elected officials' oath of office when that oath promises to support the Constitution. These actions also divert attention from the real problem of a very few people misusing the gun in their hands however it got there. That diversion scares me a lot and makes me feel a whole lot less safe living here. The focus should be on making the databases that are the foundation of background checks the best, most accurate (including deleting people who don't belong there) they can be. And I'd feel a whole bunch safer if everyone were trained from childhood in what firearms can and cannot do and how to handle them correctly, as it was when the Constitution was written, then letting those who want to go armed. There's a lot more to be said about how to do that. There's a lot more to be said especially about secure gun storage and teaching kids the proper handling of firearms from the time they are big enough to hold one correctly and maybe sooner. But, there isn't enough space here to properly discuss it so I'll stop here. Please vote NO on AB291 and please, please, please don't even consider anything else that infringes on what people own and carry around, that's not the real problem. Thank you for "listening". I'd be pleased to discuss this further by telephone - 702 902 0321. May-29-2019
Against May-29-2019
Against Nevada's firearm preemption laws have been on the books since 1989 and have been improved over the years to ensure consistency in firearm laws throughout the state, by occupying the field of firearm related regulations with the State Legislature. With the amendments to AB 291, the legislature would cede authority to the counties to pass stricter gun control laws without limitation. This move could result in a confusing patchwork of laws for both residents and visitors to navigate while subjecting Nevadans in one county to a different set of rules and regulations regarding their constitutional rights than to a person in a neighboring county. I am opposed to this legislation and if it passes, I will vote you out of office. May-29-2019

Against Passing AB291 will make me a Felon, merely because I possess a gun that has been modified. Reasons to modify the trigger in my gun ... For competitions For hunting Because I have arthritis Because I have small hands To improve accuracy for self-protection Assembly Bill 291 is intended to ban bump stocks, which are now federally banned anyway. But this bill's language is so broad that it could make thousands of law-abiding citizens felons for merely possessing such a firearm. I understand the intent to ban bump stocks, but to make thousands of law-abiding citizens a felon at the stroke of a pen, I don't understand. This bill also revokes preemption that has been on the books since 1989. This means local jurisdictions could pass a variety of laws related to guns, and I could be breaking the law just because I crossed a city boundary. Revoking preemption will likely only impact residents of Clark County, where about 47% of residents own firearms. May-29-2019

Against This bill is in effect the exact opposite of what it claims to be. This is not a public safety bill. It limits access within the home and the freedoms that have been bought and paid for with the lives of those that came before us. This bill only seeks to further vilify gun owners with no real data to justify the need, and it only speaks to those who fear firearms and are ignorant to the use, and operation of firearms. To limit our freedoms based on a few social deviants does not sound like one of a rational thinker. Only those who seek to eliminate the right of self defense benefit from the temporary power they gain as a politician. It also destabilizes societies social structure, you cannot legislate common sense, and we don’t have jails large enough already. It should not matter where you live, you should have the right to defend your home, whether your 18 or 81, a firearm makes it equal and fair, should such a need occur. Crime rates will go up, and innocent people will be made criminals wrongfully from this bill. Vote No! May-28-2019
Against Passing this bill would be an infringement on our law abiding Americans liberty and justice for all and our very sacred constitutional right. DO NOT give away our American freedoms by passing this law. DO NOT PASS THIS LAW. May-28-2019

Against We have gun laws on the books that if enforced, work. Red flag laws typically take away due process rights and have no requirement for any clinical proof that a person is a danger to themselves or others. This appears to be another attempt to disarm the innocent where defensive gun use far outnumbers criminal gun use. Facts matter and this bill is not the answer. Try to create a better bill that requires absolute proof of harm before taking away the constitutional rights of citizens of this state. May-28-2019
Against This is another attempt to reduce law abiding citizens rights. I will vote against every assembly person who votes in favor of this bill May-28-2019

Against This bill is bad law and a violation of the United States Constitution. Legislators should not be bought and paid for by Bloomberg. Strongly opposed. May-28-2019
Against AB 291 as proposed addresses four different subject matters: 1. The elimination of devices that allow a semi auto rifle to be shot faster than its design. 2. The lowering of the blood alcohol limit for firearms possession. 3. Restricting concealed carry in county buildings. 4. Repealing three state laws and granting counties the authority to enact firearms laws more restrictive than state laws. There are no common threads of similarity between the four subject matters. Semi auto functions, alcohol level, public buildings, and delegation of authority for more restrictive gun laws are four separate and disparate issues. For this reason, we believe that AB 291 is violation of Article 4 Sec. 17 of the Constitution of the State of Nevada. Article 4 Sec. 17. Act to embrace one subject only; title; amendment. Each law enacted by the Legislature shall embrace but one subject, and matter, properly connected therewith, which subject shall be briefly expressed in the title; and no law shall be revised or amended by reference to its title only; but, in such case, the act as revised or section as amended, shall be re-enacted and published at length.

Against Section 3, of AB291, is probably the most egregious part of this bill; as this section would essentially create a ‘patchwork’ of county ordinances throughout the state which would make the nature and extent of our constitutional rights under the Second and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution wholly dependent on where Nevada citizens reside and would increase the likelihood of civil litigation for such causes of action as Deprivation of Civil Rights Under Color of Law (42 USC §1983), based on the obvious Due Process and Equal Protection issues involved. Perhaps the late-Justice Scalia said it best in the majority opinion of D.C. v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 636 (2008), in which he noted that, "...the enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table." And that is particularly so where, as here, numerous alternative options remain available to address violent crime and deal effectively with the violent criminal element in our society, while protecting and enhancing the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens. Please do not pass AB291! May-28-2019
Against I am totally opposed to the “Red Flag” part of this Bill. It leaves all citizens vulnerable to confiscation and prison time associated with owning firearms. I’m also concerned about the outside pressure the legislature is receiving to promote this unjust Bill. May-28-2019
Against Having been involved with "Annie Oakley Night" at Clark County Shooting Complex, a free program every Wednesday night where women instructors and trainers teach local women about firearm safety and proper ways to handle and shoot firearms, I can tell you that activities that promote the safe and responsible handling of firearms are of much more value than any government dictated anti-gun bill. Enforce laws against bad guys and leave good guys alone. May-28-2019
Against The Nevada State Constitution states, in part, "No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." (Article 1, Section 8, paragraph 5) AB291, Section 7, para 2 reads, "A permittee shall not carry a concealed firearm while the permittee is on the premises of any public building if the county having jurisdiction over the public building has enacted an ordinance prohibiting the carrying of a concealed firearm on the premises of the public building." Allowing a local government to make such broad concealed carry exclusions effectively limits an individual's 2nd Amendment right to protect themselves while on public properties. Section 1, paragraph 3 of AB291 allows local governments to enact ordinances which are more strict than state law. Further allowing local governments to enact concealed carry laws more strict than those imposed by state law puts protection of our rights in the hands of local governments instead of retaining the responsibility to protect our rights with the State of Nevada. AB291 effectively eliminates the right to due process and the right to defend oneself in the respective circumstances noted in the bill. Any assemblyman/assemblywoman or state senator supporting AB291 is ignoring their oath of office in which they swore an oath to uphold the constitutions of the United States and of the State of Nevada. To the extent any Nevada assemblyman/assemblywoman or senator fails to uphold their oath of office and/or ignores the will of Nevada citizens in favor of pressure from out-of-state gun control groups, such should expect their respective elected position to be in serious jeopardy during the next election cycle.

Against Despite the marketing title of this legislation, it has very little to do with public safety and much to do with punishing law abiding gun owners for something they did not do. By permitting every municipality to create its own set of rules, every legal gun owner will be forced to negotiate a mine field of regulations that will make it nearly impossible to possess or transport a firearm without becoming a felon. Now I understand that proponents extended the life of the bill beyond normal deadlines so they can add so-called red flag language. My concern is that if no provisions are made for due process before law enforcment shows up on one's door and begins the confiscation process, we will be following the steps of Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union, where all one's neighbor had to do was report that you were acting out of line and you disappeared. Of course, no voter knows what is in the so-called red flag language, because it is nowhere to be found with a hearing scheduled for tomorrow. May-28-2019

No town, township, or county should ever be allowed to pass more restrictive laws than the state. State preemption laws are a must for law continuity. Do not add red flag laws to this bill as they were never in the original document. Adding these is a violation of Nevada State laws for proper legislation procedures.

Against No objection to banning conversion or manipulation of semi automatic weapon to automatic. Oppose reversal or dilution of preemption enacted by previous legislature. Political subdivisions lack authority to lay taxes absent delegation or authorization (Dillon rule) why enable potential infringement of Constitutional rights? Will this bill be pushed through in the final hours of the session? All due respect to victims and survivors but law should be rational not reactionary given emotional appeals to act even if proposal lacks a rational basis. California has some of the strictest firearms laws on the books but it doesn't seem to prevent mass shootings (I.e., San Bernadino or Poway. If this bill becomes law, it may be the last time we elect a Democratic Governor. Remember Harry Reid's razor thin margin of 400 votes? He lost every county except Clark. Without bipartisan support, many laws are repealed after next election cycle. This is the sort of legislation that forces life long Democrats to vote Republican.

Against Nevadans will not comply. This bill is outrageously offensive to anyone who values any sense of freedom or decency. May-28-2019
Against James, This is a horrible bill. If all they wanted was to ban bumpstocks I’d hove no problem. However giving county sheriffs the ability to add new more stringent gun laws is criminal. It would make it impossible for citizens to travel across county lines without becoming criminals. Additionally any language about red flag confiscation is a complete violation of a citizens right to a fair impartial legal review before any police action is ever taken. In short, this is a travesty of justice. Anyone voting for it should be tried for violating their oath of office. May-28-2019
Against I am a Nevadan, our home for 40 years. I am a gun owner, competition shooter, and life member of the NRA. I do not, however, agree with the harsh rhetoric that comes from NRA leadership. I agree that bumpstocks should be banned. If the ATF can’t do it, Nevadan’s must. We do not need help from New York or California. Most people that I know would agree that there is no reason for any outside the military to own a fully automatic firearm. Prohibiting firearms in any public place would only produce armed criminals. Banning trigger modifications would end competitive shooting sports in our state and again, only law abiding Nevadan’s would be impacted. I trust my words are falling on the ears of real Nevadans and not California transplants looking to do to Nevada what they did in California. Show Bloomberg the door an point him east. This is the second time his money is in play. You may recall the last law he helped pass on Nevada is not enforceable. Background checks are important but we need to figure it out. Thank you! May-28-2019
Against The Nevada Constitution says bills must be of a single subject, therefore, adding the "Red Flag" laws to AB291, without even a single PUBLIC HEARING on the subject is unconstitutional. The "Red Flag" laws make a legal gun owner guilty until proven innocent. These laws allow the police and judges the ability to confiscate guns without any DUE PROCESS, a violation of the U.S. Constitution. A law abiding legal gun owner can have all his guns confiscated and not even be aware of what is transpiring. I STRONGLY OPPOSE the "Red Flag" laws as written in to AB291 and therefore STRONGLY OPPOSE AB291. Thank you.... May-28-2019

Against AB291 is a bill that I know is well intentioned to provide safety to the communities and populace of the state of Nevada, but it addresses the problem in the wrong way. Adding layers of bureaucracy to the sale and transfer of firearms between law abiding citizens as well as restrictions on the places where those same law abiding citizens carry said firearms becomes burdensome on those the law is designed to protect but does not actually stop or even slow the rate of illegally carried or purchased firearms among prohibited people. If AB291 were to pass the state legislature it will only place greater burden on honorable and law abiding Nevadans.

What other constitutional right can be taken from you without due process?

Against The red flag law results in effective loss of freedom of expression. A peace officer can claim your radical posed ideas, propensity to open carry, etc., illustrate that you are a danger to yourself or others and use it as justification to do a no-knock raid in the middle of the night to confiscate your guns (temporarily) and shoot your dogs during such raid. The other parts of the bill are bad too. Automatic weapons should not be restricted. They are the best weapons for home defense. May-25-2019
In Favor I STRONGLY SUPPORT passage of AB291. This bill will ban bump stocks, outlaw trigger modifications, lower the blood alcohol limit for possession of firearms, and ban guns in public buildings. NONE of these provisions reduce the ability of decent gun owners to hunt or engage in target practice. It's time to stand up for our children and citizenry and pass common sense restrictions on firearms. May-25-2019
Against I am opposed to this bill, which will create a confusing miasma of gun laws throughout Nevada and would incidentally create yet another class of criminal out of otherwise good, law abiding citizens of, and guests and tourists to our great state. It is well known to both major political parties that this bill will not prevent violent crime, as violent criminals simply side step or completely ignore laws to begin with. I also believe this tramples our rights to due process as we have measures in place already to protect people from risk that the so-called "red flag" measures would provide. We have the ability to detain and have professional mental health providers evaluate people who are deemed a risk to themselves or others, and that does allow for proper due process. Although I understand the spirit of this bill, I believe this will be challenged in court immediately, and can therefore lend no support to it, and I emplore our Legislature to similarly decline to support it. Thank you. May-25-2019
Against This bill will do nothing to target criminals. It will not make us safer. It will only restrict the constitutionally protected civil rights of law abiding citizens.

There are enough laws on the books to stop criminal behavior. Start calling for the enforcement of those laws. The real underlying issue to address is mental health. May-25-2019

Against Good morning Govenor Sisolak and respective legislators, I am contacting you this morning concerning AB 291. I am STRONGLY OPPOSED to this legislation! Failure to insure due process of our legal system as it was designed by removing "Checks and Balences" so to speak is a slippery slope! Bare in mind there are far more fence riding Democratic gun owners in northern Nevada than you will ever know. Anger enough fence riders you will be doing so at your own political peril!

Against Keep Nevadans free and respect the Second amendment to our Constitution. Keep state preemption laws to prevent confusing gun laws on a county by county basis. Red flag laws deny due process to gun owners. May-24-2019
Against Everything in this bill is covered in existing laws and codes federal and state. The modification section of this law is unrealistic. The changing of a pistols grips or changing sights or adding laser sights would be illegal. Changes that are commonly done to fire arms are to enhance reliability or enhance handling. This bill hurt the handicap elderly , women who exercise their second amendment right to defend themselves. Honest law abiding citizens are the only ones that are effected by this bill. People who are responsible gun owners are not the problem they follow the rules of safe and responsible gun handling and storage. Nothing in this bill will fix any problems you need to look at the criminal and use of fire arms and address that issue.Many of the mass shootings are done by people with mental health issues. A lot more shootings have been stopped by armed citizens. This does not meet the goals of the gun control groups. I am concerned that this bill is supported by out of state money especially from New York. Bloomberg group Mothers Demand Action. If you look at the facts the stricter the gun control the greater the violence. May-24-2019
Against I strongly oppose this bill. May-24-2019
Against I urge all senators to vote know on this bill May-24-2019
Against All forms of gun control legislation in other states have been proven ineffective in stopping crime. The criminal has no qualms about breaking laws if the intent is to break more laws. This type of legislation only handcuffs the law-abiding citizen from using all reasonable methods of protecting themselves and their families. Furthermore, this legislation in particular could make criminals out of law-abiding citizens just by exercising their rights and travelling across the state. Lastly, it provides for the unconstitutional ability to convict someone without due process. This legislation should be opposed with fervor. We are NOT California nor should we hope to be so. May-24-2019
Against Please do not support this bill unless and until you are satisfied that it actually has something to do with eliminating gun violence and can tangibly demonstrate its impact on public safety.. "Feel good, emotionally driven" legislation such as AB291 provides the illusion of doing something and the comfort illusion brings without actually having any real impact beyond limiting citizen's rights. Please demonstrate a thinking intellect, not merely an emotional reaction, and stand against this bill that, in reality, does nothing for public safety. May-24-2019
Against I am strongly against this bill. Strongly opposed. The bill is broad and restrictive and yet there is nothing in Ab291 that would have prevented the October 1 massacre.

This has no place in our democratic republic. Additionally, I understand this bill had bi-partisan support at one time. "Adding" additional language, as is being contemplated here, with no opportunity for public opinion or debate is underhanded and dishonest. If passed, it will most certainly be under party lines. Once again I'm reminded that you can NEVER entrust your God given rights to politicians. It seems that is especially true with the present delegation of Democrats in the majority in Nevada. I hope you'll prove me wrong, but I fully expect the skunk will still smell like a skunk when all is said and done re:AB 291. Sincerely pinching my nose closed, Scott D. McClain May-24-2019

Against Senator Hansen I’m writing to offer might input on the aforementioned assembly bill 291.

Against Although I can appreciate your thought process on this bill I completely disagree with the bill. I have serious concerns with anything that every town for gun safety has to do with. I think they are nothing more than a well funded propaganda machine full of misinformation and lies. I have more than 20 years of law enforcement experience most of which has been with juveniles. I supervised a school shooter and am very well educated and informed on mass shootings. This bill over reaches and is going to cause deaths to innocent people and law enforcement. It deeply saddens me to see my home state turn into a liberal stronghold. I agree with having a safe state and safe schools etc. Having no gun zones is nothing more than setting up unsafe zones. Please reconsider listening to every town. Anything you may get from them I can easily show you the opposite statistic. Their policies are actually more harmful than helpful and take away rights from law abiding citizens. As written you law will not hold up to the second amendment. I would love to help you come up with better ideas. Regarding mental health. One real solid thing to look at is juveniles being added to the background heck’s. As of now the state does not add their histories. The kid I supervised that tries to repeat columbine at pine middle school is fully eligible to buy a gun. That is a problem. Some of my most scary kids I’ve ever dealt with can pass a background check. You bill does nothing To address this issue. Your bill could add me to a list. I have an x wife that is not mentally well and could easily accuse me of wrong doing. I could be added to a list because I have bought firearms in the last 6 months. I am the very person that you want to have around to protect the community yet your law could hurt community safer. May-22-2019

Against To me this is an all around bad bill. While I am in favor of parts of it, the fact that it enables smaller municipalities to enact their own gun laws creates a patchwork of laws that are hard for a law abiding citizen to keep track of. We get issued an NV state permit that is legal in the entire state. This law could put many well meaning otherwise law abiding citizens in jail and lose their rights. However, I think that’s actually the purpose of that portion of the law. This bill should be judged upon the individual merits and not combined into a large omnibill.

Against I am a law abiding senior citizen and registered democrat. This bill, AB 291, which would revise provisions relating to state preemption of the authority to regulate firearms is a travesty. It is offensive to all law abiding citizens who simply want to have the means to defend themselves from the criminals running amok in this state. I have met all the requirements of this state to legally carry a concealed weapon. I should not be denied this right by any other government jurisdiction in this state. Modification of firearms and alcohol levels, which seem common sense, should be acted on by this legislation in a separate bill. I am opposed to this bill, in its current form, for the inclusion of state preemption. May-21-2019
Against The right to bear arms shall not be infringed. Laws like this do not prevent criminals from procuring and using firearms. This bill would only criminalize law abiding citizens. May-21-2019
Against This bill in any version is an infringement on the second amendment. Law abiding Citizen‘s are the only people that will be punished by this. Criminals are not the people that are standing in the line at stores waiting to purchase firearms, ammunition or accessories legally… They are using the black market (other criminal enterprises) as a means of obtaining their weapons. This bill and/or any version of this bill would do nothing to slow that criminal activity. STOP PUNISHING THE GOOD PEOPLE THAT ARE DOING THINGS RIGHT!!! May-21-2019
Against Dear Ms. Jaregui, I am writing in regard to the changes you have made to AB 291. I agree that the section on preemption should be removed, as it opened the door to the possibility of a plethora of conflicting and confusing changes to the current gun laws. That originally was the only objection i had to the bill. I agree that bump stocks need to go away, and I don't think that responsible gun owners should be drinking at all if they are carrying a weapon. I do have concerns with adding "red flag" laws to the bill. I don't have personal history myself, but I do know of a friend whose wife accused him of everything under the sun when they went to divorce court, none of which were even remotely true. She asked for and received a restraining order against him based on her word only. Yes, it was ultimately lifted when he fought it in court, but in the meantime his security clearance was pulled and he was in danger of losing his job. If these laws include the possibility of this scenario being accepted by the court and leading to confiscation of firearms, then I would have to say that I'm against these changes. In any event, I do appreciate your agreeing to modify the bill concerning preemption. That was a sensible change. Sincerely, Rick Emery rjemery@cox.net May-21-2019
Against Please oppose AB 291 Thank You Michael tierney May-21-2019

Against I have no issue with restricting the rate of fire to prevent something that equates to a fully automatic machine gun, but the rest of this proposal does nothing to enhance public safety. It criminalizes common modifications that are no more safety related than changing to a different style of clothing or rearranging the furniture in your home. More importantly the removal of state wide preemption to allow local authorities to create regulation and law different to that of the state places undue burden and inconsistent application of the the 2nd amendment on each citizen. Where crossing some line on a map while traveling or visiting different locations within the state a law abiding person becomes a criminal simply by walking or driving to a different location. The bottom line is these types of proposals ignore the fact that the individuals that are willing to do harm by the use of any weapon does not care what the law might be and does not care about consequences. Therefore these proposals only restrict and burden law abiding citizens that would never use a weapon as an offensive measure to do harm to innocent people. May-21-2019

Against Please just let this bill die, as it should. It already ran out of time and had to be extended. Now portions of other bills that died are being added. It is obvious by the comments the large majority of Nevadans who care about their rights oppose this debacle.

Against Reducing the blood/alcohol content to .08 is the only part of this law I agree with. Modifications to firearms can, and surely be used to make even simple and safe modifications illegal by interpretation. Having cities and counties superceid state firearm laws will create confusion and could potentially make a normally law abiding citizen a criminal just by accidentally traveling into another city with their firearm. An example would be, the Henderson/Las Vegas city limits are not clearly marked. May-19-2019

Against I urge all representatives to vote NO for AB291. This bill has been amended to include a “Red Flag Law” and is a blatant disregard for the rule of law and the right to a fair trial. This bill is intended to further the socialist ideology of disarming the people and to strip Law abiding citizens from the right of self protection from all enemies foreign and domestic. This bill is furthering the demise of our Republic and is a slap to the face of all men and women who believe in the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This bill is not intended to save lives of the children who get shot in schools not the mass murders that take place in churches or bars. This is intended to further disarming the American People by side stepping the constitution and using HEARSAY to do it under the “Red Flag Law”. NO HONORABLE COURT WOULD EVER ACCEPT HEARSAY AS PROBABLE CAUSE NOR AS EVIDENCE IN A TRIAL. The “Red Flag Law” gives the disgruntled employee a way to hurt his employer, it gives the angry neighbor a way hurt their neighbor, it gives the angry ex spouse the ability to undermine their once lover, it gives the government the ability to overstep its boundaries of protecting the people and instead hurting the people while doing so blatantly, capriciously, with mal-intent, with prejudice and most of all WITHOUT THE RULE OF LAW. THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AND THE STATES ANSWER TO THE PEOPLE NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND, THIS COUNTRY IS A REPUBLIC BORN AND BREAD FROM THE BARREL OF A GUN FIGHTING OFF EVIL DICTATORS IN THE ULTIMATE SEARCH OF LIBERTY. YOU HAVE SWORN AN OATH TO UPHOLD AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION, NOT YOUR POCKET BOOKS AND NOT YOUR FELLOW REPRESENTATIVES, NOW STAND UO AND HOKD TRUE TO YOUR OATH TO GOD AND TO THIS LAND!

Against Re: 'Red Flag'. I am a female survivor of a violent and abusive ex-spouse. He used the court system to harm me and our children for years after the divorce, in effect making the court system a partner in his abuse by calling the police, filing false reports, filing motions with the courts and on and on to harass me. Do you think he would have used the language in this bill to cause me to lose the means to protect myself as a single mother? Do you think search and seizure would cause even more damage to myself and my children when we see the 'law' is on the abuser's side? This only makes the court system a partner of abusers even more than before. I cannot even imagine how my ex would have used it (my children are now grown)as it causes me great distress to do so. Oh, and my ex-husband is in law enforcement, so would be even more able to use this against me than most. So scary. May-18-2019

Against This bill is a travesty and totally unnecessary. It tramples on the Constitutional rights of law abiding citizens and, like all new gun laws, does nothing to prevent criminals from committing crimes. There are already a multitude of Federal and Nevada state laws defining how people are to handle firearms. Criminals break these laws and new laws as well. If you want to change the behavior of people, provide funding for mental health and other ways to help troubled people. Outlawing inanimate objects is about as useful as Prohibition in the 1920s and the Federal War on Drugs in the later half of the 20th century. Notice on on May 17 Assemblywoman Jauregui amended the bill to include "red flag" law language at the request of Everytown for Gun Safety (reported by KTVN2 in Reno). Why is she bowing to Bloomberg's personal vendetta against gun ownership? Is she also being subsidized financially by this group? There's something very wrong here.

For competitions For hunting Because I have arthritis Because I have small hands To improve accuracy for self-protection Assembly Bill 291 is intended to ban bump stocks, which are now federally banned anyway. But this bill's language is so broad that it could make thousands of law-abiding citizens felons for merely possessing such a firearm. I understand the intent to ban bump stocks, but to make thousands of law-abiding citizens a felon at the stroke of a pen, I don't understand. This bill also revokes preemption that has been on the books since 1989. This means local jurisdictions could pass a variety of laws related to guns, and I could be breaking the law just because I crossed a city boundary. Revoking preemption will likely only impact residents of Clark County, where about 47% of residents own firearms. May-18-2019

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." I've lived in this state most of my life, enlisted in the US Army and served our nation proudly abroad as a Nevadan proud of my home. Since the start of 2019 that pride has been fleeting.

Against I want to express my thoughts on AB 291 the alcohol part is not an issue but the state preemption law was put into place to keep people from getting trapped by a patchwork of laws that they have to understand and obey as they drive through counties and the state, this is a tremendous burden to be placed on honest law abiding gun owners. I have a county issued CCW I would not be able to drive through Nevada without unknowingly breaking the laws as you go. Banning the modifications to guns that a trained finger can do does nothing, it is just another way to restrict honest gun owners that are not the problem. The Red Flag laws they want to put in this bill will create a situation that has been and will be abused by people to hurt honest gun owners just for being gun owners. Due Process applies here, gun control has never reduced violent crime anywhere it has been applied and in most cases gun control creates more violent crime.

Against This version of the bill will include so called "Red Flag Laws" and will eliminate due process currently found in our states legal system. It turns "innocent until proven guilty" into "Guilty until proven Innocent"!! This concept fly's in the face of our established legal system and denies a person of their constitutional rights even before they have an opportunity to defend themselves in a court of law. In doing so, it will allow anyone to make UNSUBSTANTIATED claims against another person, and will allow the police to break into their home and remove personal property.

Against As a Nevada resident, I urge you to please oppose Assembly Bill 291. The state firearms preemption laws have ensured that Second Amendment rights remain equally protected across the whole state. Repealing them would result in Nevadans having different rights based on where they reside by creating a confusing patchwork of laws across the state. AB 291 contains language even more broad and overreaching than existing federal regulations and could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers or ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability. So called “gun-free zones” only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless against criminals who simply ignore such arbitrary boundaries. Again, please oppose AB 291. Thank you.

If more Nevadans were properly education on the use and handling of firearms the respect level would increase for them and less accidents and deaths would occur.

Please consider these words as you make your decision for voting on these bills. Thank you. May-16-2019
Against Vote No on AB291. AB291 is a conglomeration of several gun related subjects that would restrict the rights of honest citizens. AB291 would add more restrictions on to law abiding Nevadans and would not give any more protections to law abiding citizens. It has already been proven that gun-free-zones do not work! A sign will not stop criminal attacks. If a sign "Gun Free Zone" worked , the police would not need to carry guns. What is needed is for honest citizens to be able to confront attackers and repulse them. This law will only assist in the killing of defenseless children, parents, and families. Vote NO on AB291.

It will make it possible for innocent citizens of this state to become criminals based on this act due to the unenforceable provisions it contains and because it will allow cities and counties to make gun laws & restrictions that differ from the state laws. As a long-time resident of Nevada it saddens me to see Nevada giving up its statehood to become a satellite of California.

Against This bill must be stopped. The likely odds of many long time law abiding gun owners being prosecuted for gun crimes under this bills laws is practically 100%. May-16-2019
Against This bill is bad law and not needed. Bump stocks are already banned under federal law. Further, this law will enable localities to enact laws that may violate constitutional rights. Do not endanger and criminalize law abiding gun owners with this bad bill. May-16-2019
Against Any new gun control bill could adversely effect tourism. There are gun owners in this country and world wide that will stand side by side with Nevada gun owners especially Clark Count and Las Vegas is solidarity and avoid visiting. If these laws pass it will not take long for the country to find out Las Vegas is not friendly to the second amendment supporters and gun owners. May-16-2019
Against How about trying to enforce the laws that are already on the books, instead of some hogwash that will make criminals out of law abiding citizens? May-16-2019
Against May-16-2019
Against This bill does not do anything to deter gun violence. It just puts more burden on honest gun owners. Criminals do not follow rules of laws. Everything in this bill is already covered by federal or state laws. Rather then complicate things for good honest citizens you should look at enforcing existing laws. Increase criminal penalty for use of a fire arm. Use a gun go to jail no deals. They know it was wrong when the crime was committed. A armed society is a polite society. Just look at history any time gun control is imposed the the people pay the price. Criminal activity does not increase. Look at Chicago with the strict gun control it should be like Mayberry it is a war zone. May-16-2019

Against Dear, Senator Julia Ratti, Please vote against the passage of this bill Assembly Bill 291 Our Constitutional rights are a unique and indispensable part of our identity as Americans. When one of those rights is endangered, it is up to us Nevada Citizens to take action and protect it. Now, we find ourselves in a troubling situation. The Nevada state Assembly recently passed Assembly Bill 291 -- a bill that would undermine Nevadans’ 2nd Amendment rights -- and this bill has moved to the Senate. There are many dangerous elements of this bill, but among the worst is the fact that it would repeal our current state-level protections of 2nd Amendment rights. Those protections – codified in Nevada’s “preemption statute” – would be replaced by a scheme that would grant county commissioners unchecked power to force stricter gun-control laws on local citizens. Again, please vote against the passage of this bill Assembly Bill 291 Thank You for your time, Richard Ries Your district Nevada Citizen May-16-2019
Against More liberal B/S! Anything to chip away at your Second Amendment rights. Anyone that signs on to these bills will no longer get my vote and I will campaign against.... May-16-2019
Against Reg flag laws are a threat to our constitutional right of due process. The loss of one’s civil rights should not be based one’s “feeling”. Please remember your oath to protect the U.S. Constitution, which includes civil rights for all. May-16-2019
Against May-16-2019
Against I strongly appose this bill on the grounds it will do nothing to make the residents of Clark County safer in any respect to gun violence. Disarming our citizens only endangers lives. If this passes, Clark County will quickly resemble Cook County Illinois in gun violence as gun free zones become killing grounds for disarmed citizens. What then? More restrictions against lawful gun owners? May-16-2019
In Favor AB291 seems to be a reasonable attempt to reduce gun violence in Nevada. May-16-2019
Against Please use common sense...a lot of gun violence happens in so called safe havens, where guns aren’t allowed. How does allowing counties to regulate gun laws help law abiding gun owners? It doesn’t because it puts us at such a disadvantage. State law says we can carry with a ccw class. Leave it that way, statewide. Thank you May-16-2019
Against There are already laws regarding alcohol and handling dangerous equipment and r firearms there's no need for special law. is only an attempt to create more more layers of laws to make a difficult to own possess or use a gun or firearm. We just got rid of a bunch of laws regarding registration and possession a firearms. We don't see the need for redundancy here. Thank you. May-16-2019
Against Please vote no! We already have safe laws in place. Some people need to have modifications on their firearms. They may have arthritis or maybe need a competition modification. Please vote no on this bill. Thank you! May-16-2019
Against Not only is AB 291 unacceptable because of its unclear language regarding trigger modifications and also destroying state law by allowing counties to make gun laws, we now understand that there are proposal to include so called "red flag" law language as part of this bill. "Red Flag" laws change American law from "innocent until proven guilty" to "guilty until proven innocent." This has no place in our democratic republic. We demand that AB 291 be voted down or not heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee, and under no circumstances should this bill be amended to include "red flag" language. May-16-2019
Against May-16-2019
Against Some members of the Nevada Legislature are trying to amend AB 291 to include the red flag law. Please OPPOSE any amendments to add legislation to this bill. There is a lot of opposition to this bill already, but adding the red flag law to this bill would be very bad for Nevada. Red flag laws or extreme risk protection order laws, allow a judge to issue an order that enables law enforcement to confiscate guns from individuals deemed a risk to themselves or others. This is so subjective and it infringes on Nevadan's Second Amendment rights. Don't add the layers of confusion we already have in our state about firearms regulations. Laws like this will make fire arm use even more confusing for law abiding citizens. This is a BAD bill. Please oppose it. Please do not add any red flag law regulations to this bill either. May-16-2019
Against I am against this bill. I oppose further gun control restrictions and the sudden addition of red flag gun confiscation laws at the 11th hour is totally inappropriate. This bill needs to be defeated and dustbinned. It is also wrong how this bill was introduced, marketed, and rammed through the houses and committees. Not to mention all the legislators who took bribes, I mean campaign donations, from Michael Bloomberg. May-16-2019
Against I am against any gun bills restricting the citizens of Nevada. And will vote accordingly when it comes to our legislators. We are Nevada Californians flee that state for a reason.

Against This bill is completely incongruent with the 2nd Amendment of the U.S., which is the supreme law of the land and violates all Nevadans Constitutional rights! The current laws and regulations on firearms and accessories are already overreaching! We have had one unfortunate mass murder when the last statistic I heard was that the average number of guns per capita in this state is 67. That's a pretty clear indication that guns and accessories are not the problem! More importantly, guns will continue to fall into the wrong hands via the black market! Any legislation to limit or deter gun purchases by law abiding gun owners is unacceptable and will only turn the law abiding toward lawlessness! Thank you! May-16-2019

Against Vote No on AB291. It jeopardizes law abiding citizens traveling from one county to another, because it allows county governments to pass gun laws which are stricter than the state law. It would also allow local governments to create gun free zones sending a message to criminals that citizens are undefended. AB153 essentially creates mandatory storage of firearms.

I am also a former police officer and cannot object more strongly to any restriction of the 2nd amendment either for myself or for the law abiding citizens I served for nearly 30 years. Do not turn law abiding people into criminals with California nonsense. Disarming honest people only leads to them becoming victims of those who will not obey laws.

Against Save our 2nd Amendment rights May-15-2019
Against Any modifications to the first amendment negatively affect the safety of Nevadans simply because so many more people are saved by guns than harmed by them. Nevada has one of the lowest gun crime rates precisely because criminals know that guns are prevalent in Nevada. 90% of mass shootings occur in no-carry zones, which Kids in Danger (K.I.D.) equates with excessive gun restrictions. Don't turn Nevada into a pseudo no-carry state with more bureaucratic laws that criminals will ignore, and that will harrass honest people. May-15-2019
Against Please delete the section that eliminates the state preemptions. The local jurisdictions in the LAS Vegas area can’t even agree on building and safety regulations. I would have to cross at least 4 different jurisdictions to travel to visit my father or sister as one lives in Overton and the other in Henderson. I have been a 60 plus Year resident of the Las Vegas jurisdiction, have a Concealed Firearms Permit and routinely carry a firearm. Law enforcement and private security cannot provide me and my family with the required security as evidenced by the crime rate in this area. May-15-2019

Residents of clark county will feel the effects from this bill the most, and there's no logical reason that residents in different counties should have different gun rights than others.

Against All of these proposed restrictions do absolutely nothing to make our society safer. It is so very obvious that this bill was written by someone who knows absolutely nothing about firearms. Why is it that politicians always just move to restrict the rights of law abiding citizens when it comes to gun control? Do you people even look at how many lives are saved from firearms every year? Do you even consider how many violent crime are stopped each year due to us citizens being able to protect ourselves with our firearms? How many women are able to stop their potential rape by being able to protect themselves with a gun? Please focus on the real problems at hand which is mental health and the ability to actually diagnose and treat people with mental health issues and stop trying to infringe on my ability to protect myself and my family.

Against Yes, I'm a member of the NRA and have been since 1959. I don't always agree with them. To me, the NRA has served more in promoting the firearm sports and safe firearm education. My first hunter safety program was through the NRA. I mention this because most NRA members are more reasonable than given credit for. With this bill, I, and everyone else within the shooting sports community I know, agree with prohibiting devices transforms a semi-auto into full-auto function and all matters related to this within AB291 (bump stock, and why ATF legalized them to begin with is beyond me--just like their "other" gun classification). I, we, have no problem with lowering the alcohol level. However, to plug into this bill a reversal of state law preeminence regulating the broad spectrum of firearm regulations and allow local governments the bully pulpit for such matters is a slap in the face. To now allow the political ideology/agenda of a few local government elected officials to wield such power is against the basic fabric of just and fair government. It should be a stand alone item!!! It's blatantly unfair to include this section into a bill that otherwise, contrary to NRA review, is very reasonable. Please resist AB291 and/or bifurcate the sections. May-14-2019

Against I want someone to explain to me why prior to 1968 and the Gun Control Act, an American could buy a gun anywhere, even at a gas station and the only form that was signed was the store receipt. Yet, with so many guns available all over the place, there were no mass shootings, no school shootings, no societal violence that I can remember. Things like that just did not happen. Compare then with now. Show me one place where guns laws have decreased instead of massively increasing societal violence. If gun laws worked then places like Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, New Orleans, and other Democrats controlled enclaves where they have pushed through all their guns laws, would be some of the safest places in the country. But are they? All of the Democrat controlled gun utopias have murder rates of 20 to 50+ per 100,000. Along with all the misery, heartbreak and suffering of murdered loved ones, that have resulted from so called gun laws. Is this the pain, misery and suffering you want for Nevada and its citizens? Consider the violence and murders that resulted from alcohol prohibition. It is the same thing as with any and all gun prohibition laws. You are just enabling the criminals in society. One final point. Read sections 241 and 242 of Title 18. If you deprive/stop Nevadans from exercising their God given rights, then every member of the legislature and government, takes on the liability for those Rights. May-14-2019
Against If public safety is the goal, why would you pass a bill that only hampers the rights of us concealed carry members. We are able to save lives where ever we can if imminent danger occurs. We are well trained with our carry guns & we've been educated on all the legal implications involved. We've come to the aid of many innocent people as well as saving & backing up our police when needed. No matter how many restrictive gun laws are passed the miscreants of our state will not pay any attention to them. They will still be searching out the gun free areas where they can feel safe to attack the unarmed. May-14-2019

This bill is currently the 3rd most unfavorable bill in circulation. Rather than doing the bidding of your paymasters, look to the comments of your citizens...as you are supposed to be doing. 3. This bill makes it nearly impossible for a lawful gun owner to move about the state without violating 'some' anti-gun law.

Against "Shall not be infringed " leaves nothing up to negotiations. Our forefathers wrote it in such a way to protect it, from the government and the people. Empowering the people of this country to protect themselves from all evils foreign or domestic. Evils including the government itself. Giving us an ability to protect our rights, constitution and our way of life. The way I see it, criminals will always find a way to prey on who they view as weak. This bill will only affect the law abiding citizen, greatly impairing their ability to properly protect themselves. Always scared if they will be breaking the law moving about in a normal day while carrying. I dont know one common person in the valley that knows right where the lines are for each jurisdiction. You absolutly can not revise the states preemption laws in any way. We here in Nevada will not comply and are here to make our voice heard, loud and clear. As for the statement regarding trigger modifications , remember shall not be infringed, and the ATF is already on it. I left beautiful northern California almost 5 years ago to escape the liberalism there, Or as I call it " open hatred of America and all its glory". Their attack on its citizens . Restricting or nullifying rights , increasing taxes, making it impossible to thrive. Making it impossible to protect yourself and others from evil, impossible to teach our younger generations the responsibility of handling a weapon. I am a law abiding citizen. I moved to Nevada to give my family the opportunity to enjoy freedom, freedoms given to us by our forefathers throughout the constitution. Freedoms "We The People" have also fought and died protecting. We have unfortunately surrendered too much control and will not give anymore. I will not allow you to turn this beautiful free state into an extension of california. You are here to represent me, to make my voice heard. A voice I know I share with the majority of nevadans.

I can tell you from experience that these attempts to penalize the right and make it easier for the wrongs to inflict their damages on us while you tie our hands to protect our families/friends, and fellow man is the wrong approach. Which is why these horrid events will continue to increase and have. As a current business owner in Nevada I can tell you what needs to be worked on and what not but will you listen? Probably not! For instance, 20 plus years ago I wondered why Govt didn't assist in a reduced private party thru Dealer NICS Check?? Beyond me. Why doesn't NICS Collect firearms serial numbers at point of sale? BEYOND ME... You guys could use some serious guidance. Something to ponder... Ask a LVMPD Officer how many times he's ran into a problem with a citizen carrying a valid CWP Permit... RARE! You know why? Their the ones whom follow your laws and protect fellow man.. In Somalia the drug lord decides who eats and lives. In America the good citizens fight against evil. Your going about it all wrong, It's simple really. Have you ever heard of a gun store being robbed during business hours? NO.. Their armed and fight against evil. I can assist if needed.

Against Removing preemption is a disaster for legitimate and legal gun owners. It would be like driving across the state with no posted speed limits but each jurisdiction having the right to set whatever limit feels good. Many firearms owners repair their own guns and make adjustments to them. This opens the door for more regulations and creating potential criminals. Please rethink these bills. Thank you, Sincerely and respectfully, John G. Harp May-13-2019
Against This bill is very dangerous as it is extremely vague in your definition of modification, and frankly it is going against the 2nd amendment which guarantees the rest of the constitution. It would turn a 100% law abiding citizen such as my self who has never even gotten so much as a speeding ticket into a felon, this is feel good legislation and won’t do a single thing to stop gun crime. Criminals break the law, so restricting Americans 2nd is not only unconstitutional it’s frankly insulting that this is even a topic of discussion in the battle born state. As some one who almost lost all of my immediate family on the oct. 1 shooting I can firmly say this is not what the people who suffered that day wanted. Would a law like this stop what happened that day. No it wouldn’t have. This will not do anything other than persecute those who want to defend their homes, families, and property. I know of plenty good people who are gun owners, and do so responsibly we don’t need another attack on our freedom. May-13-2019
Against Violates our 2nd Amendment rights and criminalizes lawful gun ownership. I oppose this bill! May-13-2019

Against This bill steps on People's RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS.and is unconstitutional as well as makes criminals of law abiding citizens.And it does NOTHING to stop crime.In fact it promotes it by denying LAW ABIDING CITIZENS FROM DEFENDING THEMSELVES AND LOVED ONE FROM LAWLESS ARMED CRIMINALS.When seconds count law enforcement is minutes away.!Do not vote this in.Or our state will face multiple lawsuits.

Against All more gun control does is take away our rights to protect ourselves. Gun control is about disarming the American Citizen. This is a power grab through various stages which will eventually lead to us not being able to own guns or defend ourselves. This bill actually contains four separate subjects. Of those four, the most troublesome section is the one giving County Commissions the authority to make firearms laws more restrictive than state law. As a mobile, honest, and legally armed citizen of the State of Nevada, I do not want to travel around the state in fear that by simply crossing from one county to another I may become a criminal and have my property seized and myself arrested. This is not how the legislature should protect my rights under the Nevada Constitution. The Assembly already amended this bill by taking out cities and towns, and I urge you to do the right thing for the legally armed citizens in Nevada and amend this bill to not give the authority to regulate firearms to County Commissions. You may have noticed in the press that although AB 291 has yet to be passed, the Clark County Commission is already discussing gun laws they want to pass. By passing this bill, you are giving four politicians control over our rights. Aside from being unenforceable, such a measure would only serve to render honest visitors to the Strip defenseless, and put criminals on notice that they will have free rein to do whatever they want. They are also planning re-introducing and expanding firearms registration in Clark County and banning several types of rifles and ammunition. In addition, the language regarding modifications of the operation of sem-iauto rifles should be the same as used in the federal regulations. May-13-2019
Against Firearm restrictions only punish the law abiding citizen and will hurt tourism due to the large number of gun stores that promote shooting experiances May-13-2019
Against This is a classic “Feel Good” bill that will do little to nothing to promote or reduce firearms violence. This is a mental health issue! Criminals do not follow the law, you can pass any bill you want and it will not effect the cause of the firearms issues. The only effect is to punish the law abiding firearms owners. Do you blame the car for deaths in a Drunk driving incident , that is what you are doing to the law abiding firearms owners. Until you focus on the criminals you are wasting everybody’s time.

Against How is this bill related to public safety? It give local county's free rain to restrict firearms for local people but doesn't effect people traveling thru the town. This will mostly effect Washoe and Clark county's were most of the people live. So how are the people that live in these areas supposed to defend themselves if they are limited on what type of gun they can use to do that? Why only go after the guns when cars and drugs kill more people than guns do. Why is it so hard to understand why the second amendment was created and why when you took the oath of office you swore on a bible to uphold the constitution. I guess that was for show only and you didn't really mean it. Too bad you can't be prosecuted for lying under oath. May-13-2019
Against As a new resident of the state of Nevada, it is disheartening to see ignorant legislation put forth as a solution to a serious issue. This bill is dangerous for multiple reasons, but the biggest is state preemption due to the unintended consequences it will have. It is understandable for the people of Nevada to feel that they must do something to curb gun violence, however allowing each county, city, and local municipality all the power to decide what is illegal is ludicrous. Imagine if you took a separate issue and allowed this, such as what constitutes indecent language in a newspaper. One area may allow all manner of speech as the Constitution intends, another may not allow negative comments on the local government or church, thus restricting the rights if those who live in the area. I implore you to look at the laws already in place at the State level, and you will see that violent acts with a gun is already illegal, and owning or carrying one shouldn't deem you a criminal. Please, do not pass this bill. It will affect thousands of Nevadans and do nothing to help anyone. May-13-2019

Against All 4 parts of this bill do nothing to reduce crimes in Nevada, on the contrary it will actully encourage criminals to be more bolden. The rights of Nevadans do not change depending on the county in which they live. All rights of Nevadans should be the same throughout the state, not regulated by each county. If each County is given the authority to change state (and Federal) rights, law abiding firearm carrying citizens such as myself will be subject to arrest and property confiscation just because we crossed the wrong street.

Against As a lawful resident and citizen of NV and the USA, and a legal gunowner, I am vehemently opposed to AB 291. The most onerous provision of the bill is the one allowing local jurisdictions to make their own gun laws. It will make criminals of unwitting and innocent citizens who drive or walk across a county line or go into another city in violation of one of their local gun laws. This is the very reason for the NV state law that was passed a few years ago, preventing this situation. Why make criminals out of us, decent, law abiding citizens of this fine state?

Against Shall no be infringed, seems pretty clear to me. May-13-2019
Against This bill would mean that Nevadan’s would be unable to participate in sanctioned shooting competitions as trigger modifications would not be legal. The bill would also mean only criminals would be armed in public buildings. Bump stocks are stupid and should not be legal, as would anything to enable full automatic operation of a firearm. That’s where I would draw the line between civilian an military use. May-13-2019
Against I am against this bill, I do not believe that more anti-gun legislation will solve any problems our society has. I think if we enforce the laws we have, both federal and state, that will be enough. Before more gun legislation is passed we need to actually have an acounting of current laws, and remove those that don't make any sense. But then that goes for all legislation. More laws are not an answer to problems. Thank You Jeff Park May-13-2019
Against AB 291, while purporting to make Nevadans safer, is going to put both residents and visitors, all law abiding and with no criminal intent, at peril of arrest and incarceration simply because what is legal in one county is illegal in another. The removal of state preemption on firearm laws would be a return to the bad old days in Nevada when many abuses were documented, such as citizens in one Clark County city being stopped because of their skin color as a pretext to entangling them in a local ordinance violation because they happened to be lawfully carrying a firearm. Preemption leveled the playing field and treats everyone equally; a very vital concept as concerns the exercise of a right protected by the United States Constitution and, in even clearer terms, the Nevada Constitution. If you remove state preemption you will set in motion the potential for legal chaos that will end up wasting the time of law enforcement and the courts for years, if not decades, to come. I urge you to vote no on AB291 unless it is substantially and substantively amended. May-13-2019
Against This bill is a hodgepodge of awful ideas. Simple modifications such as drop-in trigger systems affect nothing but the feel of the trigger. Giving each political subdivision the ability to write their own gun laws would be a nightmare for the citizen and would likely lead to, in some circumstances, "policing for profit". AB 291 should never reach the floor. May-13-2019

Against This legislation will NOT reduce gun violence or public safety as the name tries to imply! May-13-2019
Against This bill will return Nevada into a divided State with patchwork laws enacted by every County. In addition to the shortsighted modification and bump stock issues, this law will do nothing to curb criminals from obtaining firearms and may well be a hinderance for a lawful gun owner to retrieve his/her firearm for self defense. What it surely will do is turn law-abiding, gun-owning citizens into felons since most will not comply with unconditional gun laws. May-13-2019
Against This bill which which will allow municipalities make their own gun laws will cause a lot of legal gun owners to become felons when they move into that muncipality on a daily basis. This does nothing to deter the criminal. Also, modifications to firemarms such as triggers will harm those lawful owners who do competitions. May-13-2019
Against The authors should be ashamed to write such a 1930s fascist bill. Especially the third part allowing cities and counties to create their own Local gun ordinances. If you legislators are trying to save money on our judicial system then do not make more laws that make law abiding citizens criminals with a vote for this draconian bill!

Against May-13-2019
Against Overriding State preemption makes no sense and will lead to a mishmash of varying city to city gun control laws which could make unintended criminals of law abiding citizens. I am for banning bump stocks but preventing all trigger modifications makes it impossible for a law abiding citizen like myself to replace triggers with smoother ones which might save my life if confronted by a bad guy who wishes to kill me or cause me great bodily harm by allowing me to respond faster and more accurately. May-13-2019
Against Previous Nevada Legislative sessions set the current laws regarding the regulation of firearms and if AB291 passes it will "open a can of worms" to expect law abiding citizens to know and understand different regulations and laws in each county. This law is silly and irresponsible. Clark County, for instance, will designate the Las Vegas Strip as a "NO GUN ZONE" and this will allow criminals an open season on our "Life Blood"...our tourists. I will predict a major increase in armed robberies as the criminals know they have no opposition.. I strongly oppose AB291 and hope as our elected representatives can see the folly in this bill.

Against There are multiple problems with this bill including the vague/arbitrary language surrounding trigger modifications, the problems with preemption, and expanding zones where law-abiding citizens cannot legally exercise their Second Amendment rights. Collectively, this is a bill that will do nothing for public safety, yet criminalize the typical, safe behavior of law-abiding citizens, and expand areas where self-defense by a firearm is criminalized. This bill will do absolutely nothing to increase public safety. May-13-2019
Against This bill is not good for gun owners as it allows for them to become felons just by driving through certain counties. Nevada needs to have consistent gun laws throughout the state. At least removing section 3 from the bill. May-13-2019
Against Please do not pass this bill. Bump stocks are illegal federally now, so they are also illegal in Nevada by default. Also, by allowing local governments to once again dictate weapons carrying laws, I will again be forced to know potentially hundreds of laws passed by local governments on where, when and how I can exercise my 2nd Amendment rights. As the father of 6 children, one who was the recent victim of an attempted abduction, I plead with you to not allow local governments to restrict my right to protect my family. A few years ago, the Republicans in office passed the largest tax hike in the state's history. All but a few are now history themselves. Please do not pass this senseless legislation in order to pass a "feel good" law. I fear it will be your demise in the next election cycle. May-13-2019

Against Again, here we are trying to infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens who are being punished for criminal and mentally unstable actions. We have every right to protect ourselves without infringing on our Constitutional rights given to us by the 2nd Amendment. I personally don't use or alter any weapon to full Automatic, however, there are others who feel different about them and we do not have the right to take that away. We already have laws that would punish someone under the influence and uses a weapon other than the protection of one's self or property. Remember a person who is a criminal or under the influence is not thinking of any laws. They don't care. You want to get rid of people under the influence than ban liquor, drugs, and any illegal prescription medication. Start arresting those on the street who violating current laws and not give them a break and let them go. As far as the mass shooting in Las Vegas the hotel is to blame the most. They had security video of this guy going into the hotel several times with luggage. Why wasn't he questioned? He was local and since when does a local person need a bunch of luggage and bags. You have a problem in Las Vegas with illegal immigrants that use weapons for criminal intent like the gang MS-13. They literally use Las Vegas to operate out of and commit murder, rape, extortion and other crimes. What have you done about them?

Against Greetings, I am against the provisions relating to state preemption. As it was the case several years ago. Having city laws made felons of law abiding citizens trying to drive from home to work while carrying a firearm for self defense. The second ammendment is a right at the consitutional level that should not be left up to local governments to regulate. I trust the state to maintain control on what is and isn't allowed in regards to firearms and not local governments. I am opposed to this aspect of the bill. I fully support reducing the BAC to 0.8. In fact I think it should be reduced even lower for not just firearm possession, but for DUIs. Alcohol causes far more deaths than firearms do and the two should never be mixed. Finally in regards to semiautomatic modifications. The federal government has already banned bump stocks and I find it unnecessary to create more laws in this regard when it is the ATF and Federal government's job to regulate items that should be NFA, such as a bump stock. Thank you for listening, May-11-2019

Against As a woman, I am asking you to preserve my rights to protect myself. Modifying the trigger allows those with less hand strength and the disabled to use guns for protection and for competition.

They would not have changed the outcome of the October 1 tragedy. May-11-2019

Against I have no problem with regards to banning bump stocks and lowering the blood alcohol limits. I do not agree with the preemption wording that would allow the county or cities to create whatever laws they want at a county or city meeting. That privilege should only be allowed by the federal or state governments. As it stands I don't think AB 291 should be passed as worded. I am new to the state moving here in April 2018.

Against I was fully against the original AB291 bill, but I am even more against amended AB291. Enabling "Local Government" the ability to do what it wants to pass strickter laws to infringe on second amendment rights is extremely unconstitutional and a dangerous idea to enact. Imagine the uproar if there was a proposed bill to limit freedom of Speech or Religion based on "Local Government"? This is just as dangerous and unconstitutional as if such a proposed. The overwhelming support AGAINST this bill must not go unseen. May-10-2019
Against I am not against changing the concentration of alcohol from .10 to .08. However, I am very much against the idea that a city or county can enact firearm laws more strict than the state. The second amendment is supposed to protected by the federal government from allowing states to enact laws that infringe on citizens' rights. Allowing our county commissioners to to pass their own laws (without our vote) because they arbitrarily feel like doing it is unconstitutional. Although I am not the biggest fan of bump stocks, I do not support a state level ban on them because I am concern that it would open the door to bans related to firearms here in Nevada.

Against The federal government has already banned bumpstocks....so that part of the bill is redundant .What I oppose is backdoor gun control allowing counties to pass their own regulations! This has been tried before in other states and it does not work!Please defeat this bill, it is ill advised! May-09-2019
Against This bill is ill advised. There is no reason to make Nevada a convoluted series of different laws regarding firearms carry. This would make each ccw approved citizen a potential criminal by just driving from one county to another. Each ccw holder has already gone through background checks and been approved by the Sheriff.This is an attempt to disarm law abiding citizens! Any criminal won't bother to follow the laws! The issue of reducing the concentration of alcohol while in possession of a firearm is justified - we shouldn't drive intoxicated nor should we carry while intoxicated. Don't pass this law!

Against Hi Senator Pickard, I oppose this bill not for the bump stock ban, not for the alcohol limit change, but for the local law to be able to make their own gun laws. I feel that leaves our gun laws to open ended. I don’t want to be punished for being a law abiding resident of Nevada. Please oppose this bill until it can be refined to be more acceptable.

Against This is just more government control over our second amendment rights. We need to keep our gun rights pure and uncontrolled by the huge power and control freaks of our government. This control is only about law abiding citizens! Do you really think that criminals will abide by any gun control legislation? Of course not, the only ones affected are the law abiding citizens of our great state. The only ones affected are citizens that will never commit the horrible crimes government is trying to stop. If you want to stop gun crimes then just monitor and arrest those with criminal background and any mental illness. You will never stop all gun violence crime but taking rights from law abiding citizens is not and never will be the solution. There are those on the left that will never be satisfied until all guns are taken away from law abiding citizens and then the only ones with guns will be the violent offenders, that’s a great idea!

Against I urge you to oppose AB291 and to point out to the other Senators how chaotic firearm regulations in our great State could become if this Act is passed. This Act would allow county commissions to pass more restrictive gun control measures than allowed by the State of Nevada. A gun owner could incur numerous misdemeanors just by driving from one end of the state to the other while having a "banned" weapon in his possession. Please recall the situation in the city of North Las Vegas several years ago. Handguns that were not registered in NLV were illegal. Concealed carry was forbidden. Just driving through the city on US 15 could have resulted in arrest and confiscation. Fortunately, the State of Nevada forced NLV to follow the less restrictive state law. Thank you for serving in the Legislature, Greg Roush May-09-2019

Allowing cities to make up their own firearm laws would confuse everyone in our state. This would become a disaster for law abiding citizens. How are we to know which local firearms regulations each city or county have all throughout the state.

Against Senator Pete Goicoechea & Governor Steve Sisolak I oppose assembly bill 291 and any other assembly bill that infringes on my second amendment rights.

I along with other like minded Nevadans urge you to oppose AB291. Regards May-08-2019
Against Dear Senator Scheible: Please vote against this bill. Among other things, it would allow counties to inact laws stricter than those inacted by the State. This would create confusion and a lack on consistency within the Nevada. The counties should not be making their own gun laws. We have fought hard for gun rights in this state and this bill would be an offense to the progress we have made and set us on a slippery slope for future limitation on our constitutional rights.

We urge you, please, to vote against a bill that could conceivably set in action the kind of legislation that would cost us our constitutional right to bear arms. Thank you. May-08-2019
Against Please do not support AB 291. Whether or not to ban so-called “bump stocks” is a legitimate policy issue for consideration by the State Legislature, empowering individual County Commissions to adopt gun laws inconsistent with the State’s laws (or their neighboring Counties) would be a serious infringement on Nevada’s law-abiding citizens who frequently travel among our 17 Counties. Further, emasculating the current preemption of state gun policy over local gun laws would be a huge mistake. Effectively, the freedom of travel by law-abiding Nevadans within this state would be seriously compromised. Over time, as individual County Commissions passed new gun laws, a patchwork of local laws would create an untenable situation for hunter/recreational gun owners who routinely travel among the 17 Counties in Nevada. May-08-2019
Against The Second Amendment declares: A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. The Second amendment is especially important to our nation because it allows the people to protect their freedom and defend themselves and the common good against an overreaching government. One reason we must have The Second Amendment is to protect the freedom for which our country fought so hard to win. Unarmed citizens means submission: Adolf Hitler confiscated all the weapons — took all the weapons, had a registry of everybody. Fidel Castro, upon rising to power organized the disarming of the Cuban people. Venezuela banned private citizens from owning guns seven years ago, leaving firearms solely in the hands of the army and the police. We the people of the United State of America have the right to have guns. We need to protect our freedom, and maintain the United States as an independent and sovereign country. All the necessary guns laws have already been written. Enforce laws that have been written, we don’t need anymore government interference in our private life. In closing, “if it’s broke, you don’t need to fixt it. May-08-2019

Against May-08-2019
Against Do not let the local governments enact stricter firearms laws. What really needs to be done is to ENFORCE the existing laws. Stricter laws like in Chicago, Washington DC etc do not get the guns out of the hands of criminals.Enforcement does. Check out the old "weapon enhancement " laws that Virginia had a few years ago - basically if a firearm was used, the perpetrator got a mandatory 5 or 10 years. That really slowed things down. Unfortunately, they let that part of the laws die. Shame on them. It was working. this law will not do anything to control firearms with the criminals. Do not vote for it! thank you. May-08-2019
Against Stop your infringements of the second amendment. All these laws do is create encumbrance and grief for the law abiding, as anyone who has already decided to commit murder with a firearm is not going to be swayed to not do so by some nonsense law like this. More government power in this area is unnecessary. Begin proper enforcement of the existing laws and statutes before declaring them "not enough" and creating more laws. May-08-2019

Against There is no need to change the current firearms laws currently on the books unless that change is to eliminate or cancel those laws.

Against May-08-2019
Against It seems that all levels of authority continue to use vilify firearms and try to regulate them by limiting law abiding citizens. This, time and time again, has not shown to work correctly. I am against the AB291 as it won't promote safety. The number one cause of deaths in the USA is not by firearms. Its not even in the top 10 according to the CDC. Heart issues are the #1 killer of folks in the USA, I say, outlaw fast food! Punishments for gun crimes need to be VERY severe. any use of a firearms in a crime need to have serious consequences. Select judges that see this. Criminals will be criminals. No law you pass will change their actions. Kneejerk reactions to bad situations will not fix any problems and the laws they create only hamper law abiding citizens. Proactive studies and data collection will usually point towards possible causes and solutions. May-08-2019
Against Sen. Washington, I am opposed to Bill AB 291. I have no problem with the reducing of the alcohol to .08. I have a problem with the section of the bill that will be; revising provisions relating to state preemption of the authority to regulate the transfer, sale, purchase, possession, carrying, ownership, transportation, storage, registration and licensing of firearms, firearms accessories and ammunition; providing penalties; and providing other matters properly relating thereto. The law will make it more confusing and will make it illegal for myself to transport a firearm from city to city. I live in Las Vegas and by driving north about a half a mile to North Las Vegas it would be illegal to posses and carry my firearm. If this bill is passed a lot of law abiding citizens would not go to cities that would not allow people like myself who have a CCW permit and carry a gun for personal protection. Small business would be financially hurt due to potential customers that would be worried about being arrested by enter communities that would enact gun right restrictions. I am a live long Democrat and have voted party lines for the last twenty years. There are a lot Democrats like myself and would change their vote if are 2nd amendment rights are to be reduced. Please vote no on Bill AB 291. Thank you very much for your time. Joseph Topor May-08-2019
Against From my understanding, the original intent was to ban bump stocks. The wording of this bill is so much further reaching than what was originally proposed. I am a law abiding gun owner. I was in favor of banning bump stocks, NOT everything piled into this bill - specifically the section on modifications(pages 4 &5 sec 3 paragraph 7, c.) and abolishing state preemption (page 3/Para 3) . Concerning the modifications - (1)Devices specifically designed/adapted to enable the wearing or carrying of a firearm or the storing in or mounting on a conveyance of a firearm; or (2) Attachments or devices specifically designed or adapted to be inserted into or affixed on a firearm to enable, alter or improve the functioning or capability of the firearm. Would this include adding a smoother trigger or reducing the trigger pull (for someone with hand strength issues? Is this stating that I can't have a sling to carry a firearm? Absurd....Concerning allowing counties and local governments to enact stricter gun laws as they see fit...this is setting a trap for any law abiding citizen traveling throughout the state. A patchwork of laws across the state leaves a citizen vulnerable to prosecution. One would have to research each county/city they are driving through before a road trip in an attempt to abide by the laws of each location. I view this bill as an attempt to make carrying legally owned firearms a burden to the owner to the point they would rather not carry one at all (for protection/sporting/recreational purposes) for fear they may break some locally generated law and end up in jail (firearms confiscated). Not one part of this proposed bill will make our communities any safer. A hidden agenda added to a bill is why NRA members generally do not want to compromise one inch. I tried to compromise - I WAS a moderate....no longer either...I was tricked. No longer compromising. I will speak out against all gun related bills in the future. May-07-2019

We are witnessing the Democrats trying to restrict and limit our Constitutional Rights all over this country. Criminals Do Not follow laws, and will continue to break laws. All this will do is further punish Law Abiding Citizens...and possibly make them criminals. The only objective here for the Democrats is to seek power.

Any politician that supports this will have to face a very angry public. That is a promise. Moreover, this idiotic attempt will not stand the legal challenges.

We do not need any further INFRINGEMENT on our Second Amendment rights. This bill, is not fooling any firearms owners here in a firearm friendly Western State.

Against Legislation curbing 1st and 2nd amendment rights should not be the future of this community, state or country. Sustainable and responsible projects that add value to our communities should be our vision. The above legislation does not add value to our communities, it builds on setting precedents for restricting individuals rights. May-07-2019
Against There are enough gun control laws on the books in the state of Nevada. People who choose to live here, choose because of their gun rights. No bill will EVER stop a deranged person from obtaining a weapon or using one. Restricting law abiding citizens from carrying, purchasing or possessing firearms doesn't prevent any criminal or insane individual from possessing or using a firearm against another. I am 1000 percent against this bill and any other like it. Majority of gun owners are safe, respectable and honor our constitution and the right to bar arms. We want the ability to protect ourselves and our family, hunt, target shoot, compete. The majority are not looking to shoot any individual without their life being threatened. This state is an open carry state, that allows individuals to conceal carry with the proper firearm education and certification. This should not change. This state is already on the path to becoming California. Thousands of Californians have come here to get away from their restrictions and liberal mindset. People will soon be leaving Nevada for the same reasons! I strongly urge all Senators to oppose AB291 May-07-2019

Against Hello, thank you for your service. We should be making it harder for criminals that break the law and stop penalizing law abiding citizens. We don’t blame cars, alcohol or other drivers and try to restrict either one. We also don’t take innocent drivers cars away. We penalize the driver. More innocent people are killed by drunk drivers every year than firearms ever will, but lawmakers aren’t trying to ban cars or booze. But us gun owners are constantly getting there rights taking away cause of criminals that won’t follow any of the laws you make anyways. It’s sad that this state is turning into CALIFORNIA part two. Why are people leaving California??!! Because all the laws that are passed that infringe on there libertys and rights. I’m one of them. Left CA in 1993 and love they way NEVADA is. Please don’t take my God given RIGHTS away to protect myself, family, friends and anyone that’s life’s in danger. I would give my life TODAY to protect ANYONE that’s life was in danger. We law abiding citizens are NOT the bad guys but it seems we ALWAYS get trampled on when some crazed person loses their mind. We are not the bad guys. I have never broke any laws but I’m constantly having my rights taken away. I’m a LIFE LONG BLACK DEMOCRAT GUN OWNER and I’m very upset that today’s Democrats could care a less about the OUR CONSTITUTION. If the party I voted for my whole life continues to vote out my 2nd amendment rights I will have no other choice but to start voting Republican from now on. Please consider this bill and us law abiding citizens that haven’t committed any crimes. Just imagine how you’d feel if law makers were trying to take your rights away that was for us blacks. Ie right to vote, free from slavery etc. The constitution and EVERYTHING in it is for ALL OF US. If law makers keep trampling on it then the whole thing will disappear and we ALL LOSE ESPECIALLY US AFRICAN AMERICANS. So please stand for US CITIZENS. GOD BLESS YOU AND THE UNITED STATES.

Against May-07-2019
Against I urge our legislators to vote against this bill for a number of reasons. First of all, the language of the bill regarding firearm modifications is too vague. What constitutes "materially increasing" the rate of fire? Polishing the action of a firearm is common practice, especially for competitive shooters, and increases the rate of fire. Most would consider this increase negligible, but without a clear definition could be grounds for criminal liability. Additionally, the State Legislature passed preemption regarding firearms over 30 years ago in an effort to protect citizens from a quagmire of differing laws in different localities. In an era where there are literally thousands of laws to abide by, and where ignorance is not a legal excuse, allowing localities to enact their own policies is a burden on law-abiding citizens, increasing the likelihood that they will make an honest mistake and become unwitting criminals. As such, I urge you to vote against this bill. May-07-2019
Against Our state has regulations that cover all aspects of owning firearms and therefore should be the final/only say for gun purchasing and owning. May-07-2019
Against Far to broad of a Bill. Allows for different laws in each of our counties which for a citizen would be next to impossible to abide by. Another broad assault on our Second Amendment. May-07-2019

Against We don't enforce current gun laws. Let's not add to the confusion and make outlaws of private citizens trying to protect themselves and their families. The bad guys will always have guns and more laws restricting ownership won't change that. May-07-2019
Against First off, I am totally against this bill passing. Any Nevada politician supporting this bill is a threat to freedom and should be removed from office immediately! If passed, this bill will give our enemies in Clark and Washoe County the ability to strip honest citizens living or passing through those counties, freedoms and rights that they have enjoyed for over a century. This bill is written to give a select few socialist minded county officials the right to violate our 2nd Amendment freedoms, and will not be tolerated. This last statement is directed at my fellow Nevadans: What are you going to do when they pass this bill, strip you of your freedom and then on the very next day categorize you as a criminal? If that does not cause an explosion of fear and anger in the heart of every law abiding citizen in Nevada, I don't know what will. May-07-2019
Against Please oppose this bill, it will make the state a conglomeration of different laws varied by county jurisdiction, causing law abiding citizens to be in violation by simply crossing county lines. Thank you May-07-2019
Against This bill goes too far in giving counties the right to enact a patchwork of gun laws that conflict with the state law, and thereby can cause persons to be in violation of county laws without knowing it as they pass from one county to another. There should be only one standard. North Las Vegas used to have a gun law that made Las Vegas concealed permit holders in violation when driving through NLV. As for outlawing what appears to be a bump-fire stock, I understand that the same effect can be obtained with a rubber band. Are you going to outlaw rubber bands, too? From what I have heard, the persons who own such stocks have used them at ranges for recreation. Just because one insane person used them to commit murders is no reason to punish law-abiding gun owners. There have been no similar crimes committed since the Las Vegas shooting. Is the next step to eliminate semi-automatic weapons because they have also been used in the commission of crimes? Why not outlaw cars because drunk drivers kill people with them and criminals use cars in other ways! May-07-2019

Against Can’t agree with this bill Entirely. The alcohol levels great i get that, however the revisions of preemption seems really uncalled for. How would a law abiding citizen know where one city starts and ends? Making it confusing for everyone will only cause trouble to the citizens that do everything right, but lose track of small details. Yes you will get a crack down, but not on the criminals we want to be caught in their illegal activities. We will only make good people out to be criminals for ridiculous rules in each jurisdiction. Oppose AB291, keep the rights of all law abiding citizens! May-07-2019
Against This bill is a huge over-reach. In many instances, it is a solution in search of a problem. It attempts to make illegal and penalize actions by lawful gun owners beyond recently enacted federal regulations and would allow for expansion of arbitrariness in the enforcement of gun laws. Additionally, if passed, it will likely be the subject of multiple challenges in the court system, wasting time and resources that Nevada should be channeling towards real problems, such as education, the economy and social services.

That being said they do not have the same mindset that most people have, to limit or restrict are constitutional Rights given to use by the second amendment would most definitely put our society/public at grave risk. A great deal of the people that are incarcerated would see this as an opportunity to have the upper hand and take this window of opportunity to continue or increase their destructive behavior. The everyday law abiding citizen that owns guns is what has and will keep foreign entities from coming into our country. If this bill or bills like it are allowed to pass we need only to look at other countries that have restricted gun ownership to be reminded of the increase of criminal activity they have had. In my opinion to pass this bill would be a very serious mistake and would put the public at risk, I seriously urge you to vote no on this and any other bill that starts to dissolve our God given second amendment right to protect ourselves. May-07-2019
Against I strongly support the Second Amendment. To take away our right to carry arms and to have arms is treason. A Godless culture is why there is so much violence in America. It comes out of Hollywood and from the secular religion. They draw no lines concerning human behavior and speech which destroys human dignity. May-07-2019

Against I urge you to oppose AB291. If this bill is passed, you, as my Senator, will have abdicated your responsibility to a handful of County Commissioners. Law abiding citizens will have to contend with a patchwork of contradictory laws across our state. By definition, criminals will not obey the law. Only law abiding citizens, your constituents, will suffer the consequences of this short sighted bill. Again, I urge you to oppose AB291. May-07-2019

Against This bill will restrict my rights as a single woman carrying to protect herself. I abide by the law currently on the books, but adding more restrictions such as these will make it difficult for women to be more keen about their safety.

Also, women who are in domestic violence situations that need to protect themselves and their families in order to survive. May-07-2019

You are penalizing law biding citizens for wanting to protect themselves and family. why not focus your energies an out tax payer dollars in helping the mentally ill and criminals who get weapons illegally.

Vincent Palmieri Jr May-07-2019
Against Passing legislation that will only have an impact on the law abiding gun owner is always the easy thing to do. Do the hard thing by funding and enforcing the laws already in place as well as addressing many of the root causes of gun related deaths including suicide prevention, access to mental health, gun safety awareness and criminal behavior. Please keep gun laws in Nevada standardized for all citizens of the state and allow gun owing Nevadans the ability to exercise their second amendment rights without further restrictive laws that impede that freedom. Thank you. May-07-2019
Against May-07-2019
Against As a responsible, law abiding gun owner I am exhausted by politicians never ending assault on my rights and their attempts to criminalize my activities and behaviors. I have NO objection to laws that reduce crime. When legislators propose new gun safety laws I would ask that they show statistically how the proposed law would reduce crime. I would also ask that they stipulate how it is that they will measure the success and benefits of that law once its been implemented. In order for laws to be effective, they MUST BE easy to understand and commonly understood. AB 291 is the opposite of that. It simply adds to the complexity and the inventory of laws. The long term impact of this added complexity is that gun owners will simply ignore and disregard the law. If your goal is to create that outcome and then use your laws to entrap, you're on the right tract. If your goal is to increase public safety then focus on criminals and leave law abiding citizens alone. May-07-2019
Against Oppose this bill for law-abiding citizens!!! May-07-2019
Against This is a camel's nose under the tent, relative to second amendment rights. I urge you, in the strongest possible terms, to send this bill into the oblivion that it rightly deserves! May-07-2019
Against I am in opposition of this bill as it will make no impact on criminals possessing these firearms and guns. Legal gun owners are the only ones that will be impacted. While guns tend to be the focus it is a misnomer that they cause violent crime. Instead the focus should shift to mental illness and drug abuse which are the true issues behind most violent crime. Honest and law abiding gun purchasers and owners go through proper channels to buy these items, opposed to mentally ill. The financial impact to enact and regulate these changes would also be a burden on the state budget and a waste of tax dollars May-07-2019
Against This law would violate my Second Amendment rights. Criminals won’t obey this law. Look at Chicago. Gun laws don’t work. Leave my rights alone. May-07-2019

Against Please. We have enough laws on the books controlling our guns. Leave our gun rights alone. Please vote no on this bill. May-07-2019
Against Let the state decide gun laws not the county. May-07-2019
Against This bill actually contains four separate subjects. Of those four, the most troublesome section is the one giving County Commissions the authority to make firearms laws more restrictive than state law. As a mobile, honest, and legally armed citizen of the State of Nevada, I do not want to travel around the state in fear that by simply crossing from one county to another I may become a criminal and have my property seized and myself arrested. This is not how the legislature should protect my rights under the Nevada Constitution. The Assembly already amended this bill by taking out cities and towns, and I urge you to do the right thing for the legally armed citizens in Nevada and amend this bill to not give the authority to regulate firearms to County Commissions. You may have noticed in the press that although AB 291 has yet to be passed, the Clark County Commission is already discussing gun laws they want to pass. By passing this bill, you are giving four politicians control over our rights. Aside from being unenforceable, such a measure would only serve to render honest visitors to the Strip defenseless, and put criminals on notice that they will have free rein to do whatever they want. They are also planning re-introducing and expanding firearms registration in Clark County and banning several types of rifles and ammunition. In addition, the language regarding modifications of the operation of sem-iauto rifles should be the same as used in the federal regulations. May-07-2019
Against We have the right to keep and bear arms via the Constitution of the United States!! Taking that right away won't solve any problems! Killers who want a gun will still find one or use some other weapon. This bill is wrong!! Citizens need to be able to protect their lives if needed, hunt and sport shoot whatever type of gun they want . We also don't need someone being able to take our guns away based on their own opinion! Not a law . DO NOT PASS THIS BIIL! May-07-2019
Against This is a veiled attempt to control semi-automatic weapons starting at the county level. No criminal abides by these types of laws and they only goes to weaken the ability of honest people to defend themselves. PLEASE STOP TURNING OUR STATE INTO CALIFORNIA! That's the reason I came here in 1978. May-07-2019
Against Laws are already in effect to cover this issue. You can't legislate unlawful criminals into doing the right thing. This is clearly the beginnings of infringement of 2nd amendment rights. Lawful gun owners follow the current state laws and don't need to have confusing local or county laws further infringing there rights of gun ownership. Vote No May-07-2019
In Favor A sensible gun regulation bill. Does not infringe on legitimate gun ownership. May-07-2019
Against Giving the counties' commissioners the sole fiat to legislate gun laws is a major error, not a "Common Sense" approach that was used to sell the previous gun measure to naive legislators; don't be fooled! May-07-2019
Against Please do not pass this bill! What happened to the Constitution? Guns don’t kill people, People kill people! By taking the guns away from the law abiding citizens, you will make them helpless to defend themselves. We have a right to bear arms! Criminals will always find a way to get guns. May-07-2019
Against I am taken aback by the design of this bill. You folks obviously do not care about your citizen’s right to carry. The first part of this bill is needed. Personally I believe a person should not be armed while drinking alcohol or smoking marijuana. But the second part this bill sucks! It enables municipalities to enact their own laws on a whim and thus making ordinary citizen’s law breakers. Just like the North Las Vegas City did in years past. I would become a criminal just going to pick up groceries. North Las Vegas is loaded with criminals and they do not care about laws. I feel I have a right to protect me and my family and I believe North Las Vegas will re-institute their law. Not to mention the new laws that will come from this enactment. Please modify this law to remove the preemption part. May-07-2019
Against Support our constitution May-07-2019
Against Please do not try to bring gun control to Nevada. Legislators are trying to turn this into Ca. We moved from Ca to get away from the all the crazy laws and taxes.

Against I urge you in the strongest terms possible to vote against this bill. Laws should be uniform across the state to prevent people from accidentally becoming criminals for doing something legal where they live that is illegal as close as just across the street. Further, passage of this bill will only decrease respect for firearms laws in general. My Dad was a town councilman for many years and he once said to me; "Laws are only effective if people respect the law." If we create a maze of confusing gun laws it will only encourage illegal behavior as people will have no respect for the law or the politicians that, in their opinion, passed such nonsense. May-06-2019
In Favor AB 291 is common sense legislation designed to prevent massacres like the one in Las Vegas, as well as rash acts by anyone. As always, the National Rifle Association is flooding the state with their scare tactics about gun rights. Their arguments are not rational, they're emotional appeals to insecure people. Reason prevailed in the Assembly, and I urge every Senator, especially Heidi Gansert, to get past the fear-mongering and the lobbying money and vote yes to protect the majority all senators were elected to represent.

Against Mr. Keikhefer, Regarding AB291, I strongly disagree with this legislation and its attempt to undermine our 2nd amendment rights. The attempt to give local authorities precedence over state firearm laws is a clear step to enable the gradual elimination of gun rights. Please vote against any legislation that compromises our right to keep and carry firearms [up to and including semiautomatic weapons], or facilitates the future attack of those rights. May-06-2019
Against Why do our legislators want to make it so hard to protect ourselves with bills that do nothing to reduce criminal acts but put more and more roadblocks for us law abiding citizens to protect ourselves? Please vote NO on AB291. May-06-2019
Against This bill is outrageously unconstitutional and will pave the way for Clark County Commissioners to ban or heavily regulate legally owned firearms for thousands of law-abiding citizens. We know that is the goal of this bill. This will do nothing to protect the community, on the contrary it seeks to de-legitimize lawful gun owners. Mentally ill individuals and criminals NEVER care about any gun control laws. I respectfully urge you to oppose this bill and persuade others in the senate to do the same. May-06-2019

Against This is a classic of substituting symbolic for real action, of mindless over mindful approaches to issues. The law abiding who are no threat will give up what they have to. The defiant and the bad guys will not and nothing will be fixed. There are already way too many laws for there to be any hope of enforcement. And there are plenty of federal gun laws to enforce but that are not. The biggest single issue in the US is economic inequality, not guns. What do you expect from a population of workers making half what they should in favor of stock holders and CEOs? Yes, I am a resident of your district. May-06-2019
Against I believe the bill is too vague when it comes to the what, when, and whys of firearm control concerning the state's preemption of authority. Transportation of, loaning a firearm to a friend on a legal range, etc should be allowed and not mandated by the State. We have a varied number of firearm regulations already set in stone that need to be enforced. And as it has been stated over and over again, criminals will not respect or abide by "new" laws. Thank you. May-06-2019
Against Law-abiding citizens are the only ones who will be affected by this ridiculous bill. Do you actually think criminals will realize they’re breaking the law & turn in their illegal weapons? No. You’ll just be making it easier for them to rob, rape, kidnap, shoot &/or kill the rest of us. Total BS. Support the 2nd Amendment & Nevadans by blocking this horrible bill. May-06-2019

Against We urge you to stand with Nevada's law-abiding citizens in opposing AB291. It is ridiculous to allow a County Commision to make laws regarding gun control when this is a states rights issue and a county should never be allowed to be involved in such legislation. May-06-2019

Against Senator Loop, I'm OK with prohibiting modification of semiautomatic firearms ex bump stock or machine guns. Also I agree that using a firearm while using alcohol is never a good idea!

Against This bill is bad news for Nevadans. The repeal of state preemption will make criminals out of the law abiding, who make the heinous mistake of crossing the imaginary line.

If this passes, YOU will be the news story, because you accidentally crossed into North Las Vegas without realizing it. May-06-2019

Against More needless regulation of the second amendment will not reduce gun violence. Turning law abiding citizens into criminals at the stroke of a misguided pen only serves to pander to the left wing base of voters. This does nothing to actually reduce crime. Gun crimes and mass shootings seem to only happen in heavily regulated areas and gun free zones. Restricting law abiding citizen’s ability to protect themselves, their families and innocent bystanders is foolish and should be denounced. Furthermore, this bill will also serve to put many Nevadans in the firearms business out of work May-06-2019

Against As a former 9-1-1 operator handling fire and medical calls for Clark County, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas Fire Departments, late 1980s through 2006 i worked many gun related emergency calls. Most of the gun related calls were for drive by shooting when local gangs were fighting for territory. I also worked during the Rodney King riots where firefighters were fired upon while attempting put put out a fire in a strip mall. After moving out of range they were backing the fire engine into station 3 and a bullet, from a drive by shooter, struck the front of the engine. It did not penetrate into the cab. Had the bullet gone into the cab it would have hit the fire captain below the waist. It should also be noted that the number of gun related 9-1-1 calls is very small. I estimate less than 2 percent of the calls. AB291 does not address the problems listed above. I did take a call for a man shot. When I asked the caller where the shooter was located. She said, "I'm Here.". I asked her where the gun was, she said, "I put it away, I don't need it any more." Law abiding citizens do not need more gun laws that do nothing to stop the problems created be non-law abiding citizen. I don't believe we should allow county governments to go unchecked in passing laws counter to the laws current state laws. This would create mass confusion for law abiding gun owners traveling from county to county within the state as they would not know all the laws of the other counties. The current hunting lottery has some hunters traveling through 2, 3 or 4 different counties to go to their designated area to hunt. Having to know all the different laws in the different counties is unrealistic. When does the hunter move his weapons to conform to the laws of a county he is entering? Is there a mileage grace distance? More questions than answers on this bill. May-06-2019

Against As a constituent and a survivor of 1 October who is also a concealed carry licensee, I strongly urge you to oppose any further restrictions on Nevadans' rights to lawfully possess and carry firearms for self defense. Every day, law abiding Nevadans legally defend themselves with firearms - most often without a shot being fired. Knowing that their victims may be armed gives criminals pause - criminals who are not afraid of the law or of law enforcement officers. Unfortunately, usually due to circumstances beyond their control, police nearly always arrive after a crime has been committed, therefore having the armed citizen defend themself and their family is the surest way of protection. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter. Sincerely, Rebecca L. Degenhart Henderson, NV May-06-2019
Against Please stop this bill and vote against it. It is a badly written bill that, if it is allowed to become law, will punish only law-abiding citizens. Preemption needs to be protected because it protects Nevadans from the capricious actions of local governments. Bump-stocks are now banned under Federal law. AB291 will criminalize anyone who mistakenly modifies a firearm to fire faster because it does not address intent. It is unfair and unwise. As for lowering BAC to .08 when carrying a firearm, I cite the example of what happened in downtown Reno on 4/20/19. A woman successfully defended herself while intoxicated. While I do not approve of drinking or drugging, people do it and most still have enough presence of mind when doing so to know when to protect themselves. The current rule of a BAC of .10 is suitable for the needs of community safety. Please stop AB291. Thank you for your help. May-06-2019

Against I guess the first 20,000 gun laws didn't work. Every time the government tries to take away our constitutional rights that shall not be infringed, to own and bear firearms by creating a new law, shows that laws are not working and not going to fix anything. Now you want to create a patchwork of different laws, to make criminals out of the most law abiding people on earth, gun owners. How many CCW holders commit crimes? How many NRA members commit crimes? Not just gun crimes, but any crimes. Pretty damn low percentage. I dare you to show me the statistic that shows ANY gun law that has prevented or reduced gun crimes. Good luck because I know of no such stat. I don't trust a Government that works for me that doesn't trust me to own firearms. Why do you feel it necessary to disarm an entire Nation in order to govern? Enough is enough, shut it down now.

Why haven't the other guns been inspected to see if thay had full auto conversions.

Against To whom it may concern: This bill doesn’t do anything to prevent or stop gun violence. As someone who advocates for second amendment rights for law abiding citizens, I am all for legislation that prevents senseless killing and gun related crime. This bill does not accomplish that. The language in this bill creates a grey area for what is considered a modification of a firearm. A majority firearm modifications are made for comfort and accuracy, as well as helping women and older persons be more capable of handling their firearm. Someone who is legally carrying a firearm from one county to the next could immediately become a criminal if certain counties decide to overrule state law and provide more strict restrictions on firearms. There has already been a federal ban on bump stocks, which is supposedly one of the items used in the Las Vegas shooting. These laws will merely hurt law abiding citizens, and further encroaches on 2nd amendment rights as given by the US constitution. I would really like to see some legislation that actually addresses, the real problem. That real problem is there are people in our society that wish to commit mass murder, and they are willing to do it by any means necessary, gun or not. The people that commit these crimes are mentally unstable, and show clear signs of this kind of behavior before they commit a mass shooting. I have not seen a single bill presented that addresses people who show clear signs of mental instability or increased requirements to obtain a firearm.

Against Although I do not disagree with certain aspects of the bill, I do firmly disagree with taking control of gun control away from the State and passing it on to the Counties. This is a bad move and will cause considerable confusion throughout the state. And let's be specific. This is all about Clark County. Clark County wants to dismantle the 2nd Amendment within the County and turn it into another New York City. It won't stop terrorists and nut cases from obtaining guns and killing any more than it does in NYC or Chicago (Murder capital of the Country). Please reconsider support for this bill in it's current version. Thankyou May-05-2019
Against There are no "Common Sense" laws that would have prevented any of the shootings in any of the past. Law enforcement checking up on people they have had multiple complaints or information given to them about would have. How about use the money it will take to put these bananas laws into place and hire a task force specifically for that purpose. Either way restricting the rights of law abiding citizens does not stop criminals who by definition do not follow the law in the first place. May-05-2019

Against Bill AB291 As much as I'm for safety of the public, this BILL will have no affect on what you are trying to address. This bill will only clamp down on the law abiding citizen and 'never' affect the criminal minded. When people like you finally understand a gun is a tool, just as a kitchen knife is a tool, a hammer is a tool and all can inflict harm to a person by a 'disturbed' individual. When you finally address the ‘root cause’ you are trying to achieve, will change become apparent; MENTAL HEALTH is where you need to focus! For the home, yes, firearms should be ‘locked’ out of reach from anyone but the owner but that can only become common place with understanding and training, not enforcement. Gun FREE zones only set an unfair playing field for the criminal…they will be armed but you won’t. A criminal not knowing if a person next to them is armed or not will make them move to another area like Gun FREE zones! How will you protect yourself and family? Remember, police carry firearms to ‘first’ protect themselves, not the public. There are already safety checks (background) in place for individuals purchasing firearms and they are never followed by the criminals and never will be. Therefore, this BILL will only put undue restrictions on the people of your community and reduce their option to protect themselves and family from the criminals. A gun can NOT discharge it’s self, someone has to press the trigger just as someone has to thrust a knife to inflict injury to an individual! Again…focus on the ROOT CAUSE here; Mental Health of the people in your community! I would like to hear your response to my comments and see if you can still justify supporting this BILL. This family will no longer support you if this BILL is passed because it demonstrates simple/quick reaction to issues in the eye of the ‘voters’ and not addressing a ‘root cause’ solution to protecting the community. A lack of understanding, proper training and Mental Health is the real problem! May-05-2019

Against This bill is unnecessary in regards to modifying weapons to rapid fire, as I’m sure you are all aware bump stocks were already federally banned. This bill terrifies law abiding citizens such as myself because it would allow counties to make there own restrictions on guns, this would in effect create a never ending spiderweb of laws that would be different all over the state creating mass confusion and turn someone legally protected in one county into a a criminal in another.the second amendment should be an issue that is handled at the state level because of this. This is an issue that would cost the state hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars to fight in court, as it is surely to be legally challenged. I do not see a logical or factual reason for this being that the primary reasoning for this bill; bump stocks, are already banned federally. Please don’t waist tax payers money on an issue already solved, I’d rather see the money go to schools. And please do not turn law abiding people into criminals with this legislation either.

Against As an ex police officer, firearms owner and trainer, and as someone who still works in public safety supervising large events on the strip, I strongly oppose this bill. The reason for opposition is related to the insanity of allowing individual cities and counties to decide on their own firearms laws in excess of what the state will mandate. This is insane, and as speculation in Clark County has shown, the amendment to the bill means nothing. There is already a ton of speculation over the more insane local Commissioners wishing to bring in this ban and that ban. This will lead to injustice, as persons cross city lines, or county lines, and end up arrested. All this bill appears to be is a few legislators wishing for more political bribery money from donors.Criminals will do as they do, and have always done, and laugh at the bill. Someone keen on slaughter will simply bring the gun into Clark County. Illegal weapons will go up in value, as they are sold in Clark County, thus encouraging greater sales. Take out the bit of the bill playing around with state preemption and you have a fair bill. Leave it in and all you have is stupidity, making our legislators look like they have no interest beyond what their donors wish. May-03-2019

As we know from the issues that arose when various counties, cities and town could make gun laws, this places a highly unreasonable burden on the honest citizen. It appears that the intent of this legislation is to regulate our firearms to such level that it will be impossible to own and use one.

Against Bottom line: Civil rights should no vary by zip code or by crossing the wrong street. Amending this bill did NOT fix it. Even the amended version still enables counties to enact a patchwork of ever-changing laws on behalf of cities. Nevadans and tourists alike could find themselves turned into unwitting/unknowing criminals simply by crossing the street into a gun control zone. (Imagine the mess of North Las Vegas "blue card" gun control, multiplied across the state.) The Nevada Legislature, like other preemption states, was smart to pass preemption in the first place. No studies or statistics show that preemption causes any problems, but in fact helps with uniform enforcement and understanding of the NV law. This bill will do NOTHING to stop crime or criminals... but it WILL make more criminals out of innocent, unsuspecting, law-abiding Nevadans and valued tourists alike. (Remember, Nevada enjoys CCW reciprocity with 30 other states.) This is why the NSSF has already threatened to pull the annual SHOT Show out of LV if this passes; a $100M loss to the NV economy and reputation! As for the Route 91 tragedy, no thinking person really believes that any Clark County ordinance would have stopped a deranged mass murder bent on slaughter. Gun rights *are* civil rights, and civil rights should not vary by zip code or from street to street. You can't stop crime by turning innocent people into criminals.

There are many reasons for opposition not the least of which is each firearm restriction should be considered in a separate piece of legislation. Next, the bump stock restriction is redundant and unnecessary because the Federal Government has already banned them. The wording of AB291 is vague. For example the phrase "approximates the action or rate of fire of a machine gun." There are many makes and models of machine guns. There is a wide variance in the number of cartridges fired per minute between them. There is no accepted standard rate of fire. Next, the 79th Nevada Legislature passed a measure that was signed by the Governor to make firearm legislation uniform throughout the State. This should remain and not be undone by AB291. Each and every section of AB291 is intended to restrict and/or penalize otherwise lawful activity. This bill does not advance public safety.

Against This bill actually contains four separate subjects. Of those four, the most troublesome section is the one giving County Commissions the authority to make firearms laws more restrictive than state law. As a mobile, honest, and legally armed citizen of the State of Nevada, I do not want to travel around the state in fear that by simply crossing from one county to another I may become a criminal and have my property seized and myself arrested. This is not how the legislature should protect my rights under the Nevada Constitution. The Assembly already amended this bill by taking out cities and towns, and I urge you to do the right thing for the legally armed citizens in Nevada and amend this bill to not give the authority to regulate firearms to County Commissions. You may have noticed in the press that although AB 291 has yet to be passed, the Clark County Commission is already discussing gun laws they want to pass. By passing this bill, you are giving four politicians control over our rights. Aside from being unenforceable, such a measure would only serve to render honest visitors to the Strip defenseless, and put criminals on notice that they will have free rein to do whatever they want. They are also planning re-introducing and expanding firearms registration in Clark County and banning several types of rifles and ammunition.

This bill is a bad idea for Nevada and it’s citizens and will only lead to infighting among different counties and regions that are supposed to be united in legislation decisions. May-02-2019

Against Against my right to carry in effort to protect myself. Vegas is a dangerous town, but law abiding citizens cant rely on the police to be at our beck and call during a robbery, home invasion, or attack while by ourselves. If threatened, we must be able to protect ourselves but also have the freedom to enjoy life while having this right. May-02-2019

Against Unconstitutional against our 2nd amendment. We as law abiding citizens are having our freedoms infringed on by this bill. In no way will this change the will and mindset of criminals who want to do harm it makes it easier for them. You are putting lives in the hands of police for protection. Their response times are not always available at the time of each offense. We have a right to protect ourselves and those around us. You need to look at other avenues of change like try educating the public and introducing new security measures for gun free zones. How about train those in gun free areas because those are the ones who can’t defend themselves. This bill is a no for me. May-02-2019

Against First & Formost this is infringing on my 2nd amendment rights. These laws are only affecting law abiding citizens, it's certainly not affecting the illegal purchasers of guns because obviously they do not abide by the law. And to stop carry in public places takes away any law abiding person from protecting themselves and others in case of an active shooter situation. In most of the recent shootings if you had an experienced person carrying legally they very well could have stopped the shooter from taking as many lives. May-02-2019

Against Removing the states preemption will make it harder for law abiding citizens to travel freely inside our our state. I am against this bill in its present form. May-02-2019
Against This will do nothing to stop crime at any level. If the state is going to surrender preemption then why not carry it through and do away with state education and surrender authority to the counties, in fact do away with state government and send everything to local level. Makes as much sense as AB291 May-02-2019
Against This bill dose nothing to keep firearms out of the hands off criminals, it only creates criminals out of law abiding citizens. May-02-2019
Against This bill as a whole is a disaster. To eliminate state preemption will do nothing more than turn otherwise law abiding citizens into unknowing criminals. The boundaries between cities and counties are not defined and people can cross those boundaries and become a criminal without even knowing it. To tell legal gun owners that we cannot modify our property is nothing more than a power grab, and will do nothing to increase public safety. The same applies to registration. Even when we had it before it did nothing. May-02-2019
Against Allowing the petty and foolish County Commissioners and City Councilman to regulate firearms is wrong, too locally political. Can you imagine Clark County passing an ordnance banning all semi-automatic firearms, rifle, handgun and shotguns? I'm in Clark County and an individual from Elko comes here to hunt and get snared into a firearms registration law mess? Before the standardized state law individuals with valid CCW permits were required to physically wear the firearm on their belt while in North Las Vegas even in their automobile. Boulder City never adheared to any of the state or county firearms laws. As a 50 plus year Nevada resident it seems to me that when democrats are in power they restrict the rights of lawful individuals. I am an honest person, not a criminal and yet this law will probabily make me one. Where is the emphas on education, infrastructure and salaries ? Seems all the democrat controlled legislature is concerned about is firearms, assisted suicide any anything that's restricts citizens rights! Elections have consequences and 2020 is an election year!

Against This bill actually contains four separate subjects. Of those four, the most troublesome section is the one giving County Commissions the authority to make firearms laws more restrictive than state law. As a mobile, honest, and legally armed citizen of the State of Nevada, I do not want to travel around the state in fear that by simply crossing from one county to another I may become a criminal and have my property seized and myself arrested. This is not how the legislature should protect my rights under the Nevada Constitution. The Assembly already amended this bill by taking out cities and towns, and I urge you to do the right thing for the legally armed citizens in Nevada and amend this bill to not give the authority to regulate firearms to County Commissions. I also oppose the other provisions. The current law goes far enough. May-02-2019
Against More stupid stuff against the 2nd ammendment. Knock it off. May-02-2019
Against As a young police officer in one of the highest crime areas in the Las Vegas valley, I am on the front line of gun violence. I can personally attest that not a single person I have arrested for crimes involving firearms actually cared about the laws passed by the state legislature. Furthermore, I would not feel any more safe, in or out of uniform, if these laws were to pass, because I deal with the realities of gun violence for a living. I have conversed and engaged with the perpetrators of these crimes, and they do not care what is stated in NRS. Furthermore, these laws are simply stack-on charges, meaning they will not prevent any future violence, which is what they were marketed to do. Instead, they will simply restrict the ability for law abiding citizens to freely exercise their right to keep and bear arms, because they are the only ones who will follow them. The section lowering the blood alcohol content (BAC) "per se" limit to carry a firearm, in line with that of driving, was packaged with the other language to make it more attractive in lieu of the uglier parts that would surely fail on their own. Please do not vote in favor of this bill in order to lower the BAC "per se" limit, as it carries with it a slew of grave unintended consequences.

Against This bill violates NV's protections on the right to keep and bear arms. State preemption is a necessary protection against anti-rights actions by counties, and furthermore the law is politically punishing because it does not allow counties to make policies that recognize and protect rights more than what the state allows, but then allows those same counties to make policies and ordinances that infringe on the right.

Against This bill is going too far with prohibiting any mechanical/aesthetic modifications to firearms. I do not believe that preventing citizens from modifying their firearms will in anyway prevent criminals form doing heinous acts. Criminals will not follow the law as outlined in this bill. revising provisions relating to state preemption of authority outlined in this bill will make laws already in the books on Federal and State levels much more harder to enforce. This bill sets precedence that Counties and cities will impose unreasonable and unfair laws and restrictions on firearms owners within their county and city limits. This will also cause inconsistencies with following laws throughout the State. This bill is a violation of the Nevada State Constitution and the United States Constitution of the American citizen’s right to keep and bear arms. Nevada should NOT become another California to firearms owners. I urge all legislators to oppose this bill. May-02-2019

Against OPPOSE AB 291. Nevadans struggled for years to obtain State preemption of firearms laws, to get rid of the patchwork of inconsistent laws in different jurisdictions, and to have uniform firearms laws across the State. AB 291’s repeal of State preemption will have a severe, negative effect on the citizens of Nevada. Once the “balkanization” of stricter firearms laws takes root, Nevadans in different parts of the State will have different rights, based on where they reside and, potentially, making Nevadans unwitting criminals when traveling from one County to another. Please OPPOSE AB 291. May-02-2019

Against Section 3 is extremely troubling. The NV state exemption laws keep one governing law in place for the entire state.

Against This bill is nonsense and not for Nevada. It should be SHOT down in flames. May-02-2019
Against Dear Chair Cannizzaro, The Nevada Firearms Coalition is STRONGLY OPPOSED to AB 291. Former Assemblyman Danny Thompson (D-LV) in 1989 sponsored the bill to enact statewide preemption for firearms. It was passed by the Democrat-controlled Assembly and Republican-controlled Senate, reserving power to regulate firearms to the state and not local authorities. AB291 will revoke a law that has been on the books for 30 years that has ensured law-abiding citizens don’t break the law just because they cross a city or county boundary. AB 291 as proposed addresses four different subject matters: 1. The elimination of devices that allow a semi auto rifle to be shot faster than its design. 2. The lowering of the blood alcohol limit for firearms possession. 3. Restricting concealed carry in county buildings. 4. Repealing three state laws and granting counties the authority to enact firearms laws more restrictive than state laws. There are no common threads of similarity between the four subject matters. Semi auto functions, alcohol level, public buildings, and delegation of authority for more restrictive gun laws are four separate and disparate issues. For this reason, we believe that AB 291 is violation of the Constitution of the State of Nevada. Amendments to current law for the first three subjects is accomplished by modifying NRS 202. However, to accomplish subject matter 4, three other statutes must be repealed (NRS 244.364, NRS 268.418 and NRS 269.222) and NRS 244.364 being included in NRS 202, clearly violating the single subject requirement found in Article 4 Section 17 of the Constitution of the State of Nevada. For these and other reasons, we respectfully request that AB 291 be stricken, or amended to confirm to its original single subject rule; regulation of semi auto enhancement devices. Sincerly, May-02-2019

Against I'm troubled by the way the bill combines palatable and reasonable changes along with a change I am opposed to. The three main subjects should be considered, voted on and enacted separately. Banning mechanisms that accelerate the rate of fire of a semi-auto firearms is a great idea, I'm all for it. As a responsible gun owner the reduction in allowable blood alcohol levels from .10 to .08 doesn't bother me. But, these are separate issues that should be stand-alone regulations. Section 8 that repeals the exclusive right of the legislature to mandate possession and carry laws, coupled with section 3 that will allow counties and municipalities to enact regulations more stringent than state law are a violation of my Second amendment rights and should not be enacted.

Against AB291 will do absolutely nothing to deter crime, as criminals don't follow laws... However, It does infringe upon the second amendment rights of law abiding citizens, and place an unneeded burden on law enforcement agencies. There is no reason at all to chop up different areas of a city or county with different firearm restrictions. This could make the average person a law abiding citizen on one side of the street, but a felon as soon as they cross an imaginary line on the other side of the road... May-02-2019
Against I am 100% against AB291. Please reject this bill in its entirety. Eliminating the state preemption of its authority over firearms laws would allow individual Nevada counties to enact a hodgepodge of conflicting and repressive firearms laws. A person simply driving from one county to the next could suddenly find himself in instant unwitting and unfair violation of conflicting local firearms ordnances. You focus should be on penalizing criminals that have violated the laws that are already on the books instead of creating laws that will result in confusion and law abiding citizens becoming criminals for driving from one county to another in Nevada. Your focus should be on creating a solution and resources for the mentally ill so they do not resort to violence and self harm. Your focus should be on keeping criminals from harming law abiding citizens - PUNISH THEM FOR THE CRIME THEY COMMIT - you guys keep allowing criminals to plea down and its a “slap on the wrist”. They plea down and now their violent crime they committed is reduced to a lesser crime - which means its likely they will pass a background check because the new, lesser crime that’s attached to them won’t come up on a background check. You are not coming up with a solution, you are creating a problem. May-02-2019
Against Poorly written bill to make law abiding citizens criminals. May-02-2019
Against In regard to state pre-emption, you chose to modify a statutory scheme that has worked well since 1989, has brought stability to citizens in Nevada, and poses no problem in its continuance. Your actions constitute a solution to a problem that does not exist. Concealed carry holders are the most law abiding population in the state, accounting for less than .01 of 1% of total crime. They have ALL competed background checks and most have met with either the Sheriff of their county, or the Sheriff's appointed representative to discuss any concerns. The entire concealed carry population in the state of Nevada has met the training criteria established by the Nevada Sheriff's Association. Again this is a solution in need of a problem. I absolutely do not accept the idea that cities and counties in the state have a more fundamental right to exercise their law-making function than the individual right to bear arms as articulated in the Second Amendment to the Constitution and reaffirmed by the US Supreme Court in the Heller decision.

Against As a citizen of Nevada for 25+ years I am strongly opposed to this bill. It will place an unnecessary burden on myself and family as we travel between Washoe County and Clark County multiple times per year.

Against This bill is an affront to the law abiding citizens of this state who are authorized to carry a weapon throughout this state from one county to another. By authorizing each county to dictate who can carry and what they can carry makes a law abiding citizen a criminal if he is carrying in a county that has forbidden a citizen to carry and yet is authorized by the state and county of residence where one lives. This bill is nothing but another step to disarming the entire law abiding citizens of this state and eventually the entire country. The 2nd amendment gives a person the right to bear arms in defense of ones loved ones and home against tyrants such as those who write bills and come up with any reason and excuse to disarm the American people. Take a look at Venezuela if you want to see what happens to a nation that is disarmed by its government. I respectfully ask you to not vote for this bill. Sincerely; Max L. Ravenscroft May-02-2019

Against Blue cards didn't work when they were in place, and will not work in the future. A Utopian idea has been the thorn in societies side for some time now. We tend to forget that human nature creeps in and takes away the very best of this idea. We have to realize that as a country we are still young, as a republic and a democracy we are still an experiment. Something brand new for us to feel our way through. We have not out grown and are just starting to feel the growing pains of the future. Human nature makes it possible that all criminals will have the means and fortitude to commit crimes with firearms. Where does that put the rest of us law abiding citizens, at the mercy of police and other law enforcement agencies? Which, by their very make up, are reactive agencies. Nothing they do is proactive. I see officers going from call to call all night, whilst observing drug dealers profit on the streets. To those of you who have grown up in middle class white America, none of you will ever know what having a firearm in your home or on your person to protect yourself means. You only hear the tragic stories of a few. How about the amazing stories of those who have taken the choice to defend themselves. The funny thing, none of you want to believe that criminals will not change. The sad part is a very small part of the majority, will reform. Most re-offend almost like clock work. We need stronger laws for those who decide to use illegal violence against another. Not punish those who seek to defend themselves. The Route 91 Concert ( Amazingly Tragic) could not have been prevented by stricter gun laws. How about making stricter security requirements for the various casinos in our State. Everyone would like to believe that customer service and a smile keeps those bad people away, instead they prey on this. The police do not and will not respond in a timely manner to save lives.

Against Strongly oppose! This has nothing to do with public safety, and everything to do with illegal, unconstitutional gun control. May-01-2019
Against Please uphold your oath (NRS 282.020) to protect the U.S. Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. Civil rights are a cornerstone to our Constitutional Republic form of government. Remember, "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.", as stated within the 2nd Amendment of our U.S. Constitution. It is your obligation to protect our Bill of Rights, guaranteed to us as American citizens. May-01-2019

Against Eliminating the state preemption of it's authority over firearms laws would allow individual Nevada counties to enact a hodgepodge of conflicting and repressive firearms laws. A person simply driving from one county to the next could suddenly find himself in instant unwitting and unfair violation of conflicting local firearms ordnances. Nevada firearms laws need to remain the way they are and not changed. May-01-2019
Against Please reject this bill. May-01-2019
Against This bill I a nightmare for NV. Please reject it. May-01-2019

Against Another Bad Bill from our Nevada State Legislators. May-01-2019
Against This bill makes no sense and only makes law abiding citizens into criminals May-01-2019
Against ABSOLUTELY OPPOSED TO AB291. May-01-2019
Against I strongly oppose this Bill as written for the following reasons: 1) Our Statutory and Civil rights should always allow us to carry a weapon. This action will be contrary to the Constitution of the US. 2) Repealing State laws to allow Counties to create their own version of the law will be hard on law enforcement to know the true laws if not consistent, and again will make it much easier for certain counties to act in violation of our Constitution and essentially violate our Civil Rights. As we all know, guns done kill, people kill. The Legislature needs focus on how to deal with the very small minute minority of folks with Mental Health and past violations of law, and felons who have already been convicted. These changes will not fix the population or the problem. Not one of these recent "shootings" has been the result of an action against any of the above proposed changes to the law. Please reconsider carefully your actions. May-01-2019
Against Im against this bill both in its original and ammended form...This will only make law abiding citizens criminals..The criminals will still do what they are going to do....Vote No !!!! May-01-2019
Against Different laws across county lines cause confusion and make enforcement impossible. Criminals do not care about another gun law. Passing this will make criminals of law abiding citizens who cannot keep track of every modified act across county lines. This is a misguided law that doesn't make sense. May-01-2019
Against Stop attacking law abiding citizens with more asinine legislation. Criminals DON'T care about you or your laws. Only conscientious law abiding citizens ( like myself) will be effected by more laws and overworked deputies will be asked to do the impossible!! People hurt other people. With hands,knives,bats,bottles etc, outlaw them as well!! Shouldn't we expect people to behave with respect for others, but I guess I'm to old fashioned. Leave the 2nd.ammd. alone for the love of country and God. I would say respectfully but you don't show the respect we deserve by your actions as of late. Only for your own agendas. May-01-2019
Against As a law abiding gun owner with decades of experience I object to passage of this bill which will do nothing to stop gun crime but will likely make felons of many of us that are good and law abiding citizens. I guarantee after 30 years in the Marines as a weapons specialist plus decades of related experience in the civilian world I'm more qualified to know which things are safe and required than any politician we have in Nevada today. I've held and still do hold concealed carry permits/licenses in several states since 1995, with never a problem. Now, anti-gunners looking to buy votes with false claims to their constituents seek to make those like me a criminal overnight with the stroke of a pen. Human nature is the issue, not the tools used. That has always been true and always will be. We already have gun legislation on the books at both the federal and state levels that prohibits more than can be enforced today. Adding more won't make us safer, but it will make us less safe from those who never, ever worry about the law to begin with. Punishing the good guys and gals doesn't help make us safer. It may make for good political points while pandering for votes but it does't translate to reality where it counts. That's been undeniably proven time and again. Please don't support AB 291 specifically and any of the other poorly designed, overly broad poorly thought out measures being thrown around by people who don't know the difference between a handgun and a grease gun. Don't start down the same road in Nevada that turned other states into a mess with no increase in safety, like Illinois, Wash, DC, New York, California and New Jersey for example. Call your local and state legislators ASAP and voice your opposition to passage of this and other gun control bills. Don't let our constitutionally guaranteed rights be usurped for PC politics by vote buyers. May-01-2019
Against Gentlemen, it is imperative that we maintain consistency in our area gun laws. To allow jurisdicitons to randomly select their own laws for enforcement is not only confusing but counter productive for our citizens. We have to have laws and keep the SAME instructions in every jurisdiction to compel the public to become acquainted with what they can and cannot do in regards to firearms safety. In addition, I would like to comment on the proposal by Clark County to make it illegal to carry a firearm on what is known as the STRIP in Las Vegas or any other area of Nevada. Here we are about to arm our children and or teachers so they can feel safe going to a confined space such as a school and after an example such as the mass killing thta occured in Las Vegas already it appears commissioners and councilman want to make all of the Strip so vulnerable that any opportunist will have absolutely no hesitation for threatening what will virtually be a gun free zone full of the very visitors we want to protect but with what. Good buys with firearms stop bad guys with firearms when they have to. Anything less would lead to open season on touirists is bad guys have nothing to fear from the citizenry. May-01-2019
Against I cannot voice my opposition to this unfair and ludicrous bill in strong enough terms. Of particular concern are sections 3 & 8, removing pre-emption status and creating in effect a legal nightmare for all law abiding gun owners and concealed carriers. CCW holders commit felonies at a rate lower than sworn law enforcement officers. We are not the problem, and restricting our rights and legal protections will not serve to make anyone safer. I urge you to vote with common sense and OPPOSE AB291. As a constituent, I am also EXTREMELY frustrated at the difficulty I have getting in touch my elected representatives, who are supposed to work on behalf of me and the other residents of the district. The address listed is a UPS store, so I cannot visit an office. Phone numbers are not readily available for calling. This give the appearance that Senator Dondero Loop is hiding from her constituents, and I am left myself with that very strong impression. Thank you, --Lawrence Stein May-01-2019
Against THERE IS NO PROBLEM CURRENTLY WITH THE EXISTING, OR LACK OF EXISTING LAWS ON THIS SUBJECT. May-01-2019
Against I will not support and vote for any politician that votes in favor of increasing gun control measures above and beyond what is already law prior to this legislative session. May-01-2019
Against I strongly oppose this nonsense bill! May-01-2019
Against Do not infringe my rights because of the actions of a few. This is like outlawing cars for everyone because of a few drunk drivers. (who by the way kill more than all legal guns combined) May-01-2019
Against This is a broad attempt at unnecessary regulations that will not keep criminals from committing acts of violence. But, will only limit law abiding citizens from protecting themselves and family members. Enforce current laws and increase penalties for those that commit infractions. May-01-2019
Against What is wrong with you people going against the constitution on which you swore to protect and defend. Why are you taking the rights of law abiding citizens away.? Our country became free from the British by the guns you are trying to take, why ? I am opposed as you should be also. May-01-2019
Against This absolutely has to be voted down! It will severely infringe upon our 2nd Amendment right guaranteed by the US Constitution. If it passes I will most likely move out of Clark County!!! As a cautionary tale we just have to look at what's going on in Venezuela. They had their guns taken away and ruthless tyrants have taken over. We can not let that happen to the USA!!!!

Against As a medical professional in Southern Nevada, I carry a concealed weapon to protect myself from direct threats that have been made to my and my family’s life. My husband is also a 25 year police officer here and a Veteran. We are proud Nevadans and productive, tax-paying public servants. We urge you not to infringe upon our rights as lawful gun owners. Gun control cripples good people trying to protect themselves and does nothing to stop criminals from having and/or using guns. May-01-2019

Against This Bill violates the Second Amendment of the Constitution! May-01-2019

Against Does a part of this bill allow local municipalities to reject the State CCW Law ? , which currently is a State Law that cannot be superseded local Governments ? I don't know how long you have lived in Nevada, my Family moved to Las Vegas in 1946 when the Valley was a Paradise with Artisan Wells flowing everywhere and if you like the taste of water it was wonderful. I grew up here and I have seen the deterioration of what were nice middle class neighborhoods. I went to LVHS and on Friday nights we would cruise Fremont St.[American Graffiti] . Been to the Fremont Experience ? I know, things change--that's life. If you take away the CCW privilege in certain locals----you will put citizens at risk, especially Women, they are the most vulnerable. Law Abiding Citizens are not shooting anyone. Apr-30-2019

Against Senator Parks, I am writing you in regards to Bill AB291. As a law abiding gun owner this bill is nothing more than a feel good type of legislation. I work for a defense contractor here in Las Vegas call JT4LLC, which means I have a security clearance and underwent a SSBI with polygraph. I was investigated by the FBI and OSI of the Dept of Air Force and was found to be of outstanding character. I do own several guns, both pistol and rifle and have never thought of using them in anger. All this bill will do is disarm law abiding citizens of this state like me. I have no choice in this matter because any arrest would mean loss of my clearance and without that, my job. Criminals do not care about or follow any laws already on the books and never will. Perfect examples of this happened in the state of New York, where I resided before moving to Nevada 4 years ago. An inmate in a state correctional prison overdosed and was saved by Narcon being administered to him. After a search of his belongings, 23 packets of heroin where found. He was already in prison for committing a felony and did not care about committing another by have an illegal during in his possession while incarcerated. Once again I must point out; criminals do not care about any laws. Only law abiding citizens will follow them. Have you ever wondered why sociopathic people who decide to kill people only do it where they know everyone is disarmed? Why do you think Major Nidal Malik Hasan decided to kill Army personal at Ft Hood, he knew that only a few MP’s were armed and response time would be slow, and his victims would be unarmed. I could continue ad nauseam, just like the anti gun people can. Somewhere in the middle is an place were people can agree I hope. Thank you sir for listening Apr-30-2019
Against This bill will do nothing to address the problem it is attempting to solve. It is a feel good measure that will take away the rights of law abiding people and no one else. This bill must not come to be passed. Apr-30-2019

Against Apr-30-2019
Against There is no reason why I should have to worry about breaking the laws of a city or a county while traveling in my own state! State law should supersede any and all city or county laws! The only thing that happens with more gun legislation is you empower the criminal. That's what makes them criminals, because they don't care about breaking the law. While yes there are police officer are around, they are a reactionary factor. They are not there until you need them and even then they are not required to be there. Quit trying to bring California laws into Nevada. We are not California. Look at every state with restrictive gun laws, they still have gun violence. Apr-30-2019
Against This bill is more crap on top of crap to take good gun owners rights away. Apr-30-2019
Against Jeopardizes law abiding citizens when traveling from county to county as well as several other aspects of my rights. Apr-30-2019
Against Leave my freedoms and right the he'll alone. "Shall not be infringed" I'm sure that rings a bell. For once how about you uphold your oaths of office by defending and living by the constitution instead of trying to usurp power and pad your own pockets. We are tired of the crap! You nor anyone else gets to dictate how, when, where, and in what manner I choose to defend myself and my family. We want freedom and liberty not your safety net that strips us of our rights and puts us in danger! Apr-30-2019
Against Have always felt Nevada gun laws protected both gun owners and non gun owners. Enforce the current laws and I believe the statistics will satisfy all parties. I would hate to see the exodus in our great state that California is seeing Apr-29-2019
Against This is assinine. We the legal gun owners have never been the problem. Please don't treat us as criminals for no reason other than your fear of the unknown. Apr-29-2019
Against Nevada wants take away gun rights. Law abiding citizens get hurt again while criminals still have their guns. Just call Nevada California East because that what it be coming. After born and raised in the State I cannot get out fast enough. Apr-29-2019

Against This bill is bad for Nevada. I am a law abiding citizen, having passed several background checks not only for my ccw but for employment. You are going to make the MOST responsible, law abiding and safe people this state has, blatant criminals. This will do nothing to stop criminals from committing crimes. This makes laws not consistent across our state and when crossing county lines could easily cause one to break a law. Please vote NO on this bill. Listen to we the people for once and stop shoving your ignorance on the issue down our throats. Apr-29-2019
Against PLEASE... tell all of us how any of your laws will prevent a person from killing. It already is against the law to kill. How many subset laws must law abiding citizens to subject to?

Against AB 291 is an attack on our rights. This bill, with or without the amendment, is poorly written and will ruin people's lives. Start remembering your oaths. Allowing the state or any political subdivision of the state to create laws that infringe upon our rights is unconstitutional. Would the state allow a county to impose restrictions on free speech in certain areas under the guise of make believe public safety? Would the state allow a county to void your right to only warranted searches in certain areas under the cover of make believe public safety? Would the state allow a county to void your right to prohibit searches and detainment without probable cause in certain areas under the name of make believe public safety? No, all would be immediately declared immediately unconstitutional, so why is the right to bear arms being treated differently? AB291 will be adverse to the millions of dollars of tourism to Nevada along with creating a nightmare for a citizen and/or tourist to exercise their 2nd Amendment right. Simply crossing the street could cause a tourist to become a felon. Vote NO on AB 291. Stop take rights away under the belief it will create safety. Criminals do not care about laws. None of these proposed measures has ever stopped or curtailed one murder, no one. Stop pushing the whole for the actions of a very very few. This is not California but Nevada. Remember the state motto "All for Our Country", it is not "All for California". Apr-29-2019

Against SB291 will create a patch works of laws that will make it very hard to navigate across the cities and counties for LEGAL gun owners. We need to maintain or state preemptive laws. Why are you trying to pass legislation that will complicate normal legal citizens lives. So for example I live in NLV. If LV says AR-15s are legal and NLV passes a law making AR-15s illegal, what then? I have to move across the street? Please do not try to create a solution where there is no problem. Please explain your rational for this bill. What are you trying to solve? I look forward to your reply. James Seybert Apr-29-2019
Against Allowing local jurisdictions the authority to make their own gun laws will only make criminals out of otherwise law abiding citizens. A private citizen with a CCW permit would never be able to "carry" without a textbook along to look up the local laws. Just here in the Las Vegas valley you can cross 3 or 4 jurisdictions out running errands. And you do not know when you leave one and enter another as there is no signage on the roadway to tell you. This is one of those "feel-good" laws that only opens up a whole can of worms. Leave the gun law purview with the state. Apr-29-2019
Against I do not support infringement of my Second Amendment Rights. This bill is over-reaching and unwanted.

Against strongly against Apr-27-2019
Against This bill is asinine. By destroying state preemption, it allows municipalities to write their own gun that will create criminals of citizens driving across a line within the state and sow confusion among law enforcement. This is a blatant attempt to take gun rights away from the citizenry. Murder, assault, and a host of other crimes are already on the books, yet criminals still break the law. Harsher penalties for existing laws should be enforced against criminals, not the taking of rights from lawfully armed citizens. Law abiding citizens will lose the ability to defend themselves. Apr-26-2019
Against This is a terrible bill. Not only does it needlessly duplicate existing federal statutes on machineguns under 18 U.S.C. 922(a) and (o), but it is written so vaguely that even routine gunsmithing for target shooting or competitions can now be construed to the making of a machinegun. This is absurd. This does NOTHING to enhance public safety. It wastes prosecutorial resources by criminalizing innocuous behavior. THIS IS A BAD BILL. The statutes pertaining to the gutting of state preemption are especially egregious. Allowing local governments (even limited only to the county level) to pass a patchwork of restrictive laws will not enhance public safety in the slightest. All this will do is allow petty commissioners to harass peaceable citizens. THIS IS A BAD BILL. LISTEN TO YOUR CONSTITUENTS AND READ THE COMMENTS. DO NOT PASS THIS BILL. THIS IS A BAD BILL. Apr-26-2019
Against As a registered Republican voter, I am vehemently against ANY such bill that infringes upon the Second Amendment of the US Bill of Rights and Constitution submitted by any state or local authority. Such bills as this one disguises the true intent, and that is the disarmament of the American people. Furthermore, this bill potentially limits my ability to protect my family from criminal intent. I urge all representatives to vote AGAINST such bills that infringe on the People's Right to Keep and Bear Arms as guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. Apr-26-2019

Against Pure ignorance. Your vote for this bill shows your disdain for the law abiding citizen, and your trust in the average everyday criminal. This bill will not reduce gun violence it only criminalizes the gun owner. You should be ashamed of yourself if you voted for this bill. Apr-25-2019
Against I support the ban and I'm very happy with the wording of the bill in regard to devices that can allow a gun to fire more then one round per action. However I appose the addition of a change to the law that would allow counties within Nevada to pass laws with regard to gun control. I'm concerned about the creation of a patchwork of laws across that state that could cause otherwise law abiding citizens carring guns across county lines to be criminally liable even though they may have passed state mandated background checks for a concelled weapons permit or may be traveling to or from home, a gun range, or to an area of the state for which their game tag may have been issued. Please reject this law as written and ask the Assembly to rewrite the law to only ban bump stocks and other devices. Apr-25-2019

Against Even Harry Reid knew passing gun laws on law abiding citizens of Nevada would have cut his career short. This law does nothing short of violating our 2nd Amendment Constitutional rights. I completely understand the desire to "save lives", but criminalizing law abiding citizens is not the way.
