Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- Say goodbye to handgun registration in and around Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed Senate Bill 175, abolishing Clark County’s “blue card” handgun registration system while ushering in a host of other pro-gun changes to state law.

Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group, Everytown, tried hard to defeat the bill. The bill contains several provisions that expand and protect the right to carry and use firearms for self-defense. First, it extends Castle Doctrine protection to people who use firearms to defend themselves in their vehicles. Next, it provides greater protection against civil lawsuits, to those who use firearms to defend themselves against certain violent criminals. It also extends Right-to-Carry permit reciprocity to a greater number of states and strengthens state preemption of local gun control ordinances.

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox noted that S.B. 175, “is part of a growing trend across the country of states extending greater recognition to people’s constitutional rights and strengthening their ability to protect their families from harm.”

They sold guns, there was a Kodiak bear standing on the stairway to the second floor. My Dad bought me a stainless steel nautical knife with a marlin spike. The clerk said Chicago law did not allow sale or possession of knives with long blades. Even at 11 years of age I knew that it wasn’t legal to murder someone with a 2 inch blade or that a… Read more »

All serious owners of firearms have been watching Nevada. After the Colorado debacle, they’re more vigilant today than ever before. On the heels of New York and Connecticut, losses in Washington and Oregon have created FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) in all the remaining states. I’m sure many share my own questions of the legal process as it must occur now that SB-175 has been enacted. In view of the leftist determination to control owners and confiscate firearms, I’m wondering if this precedent alters Bloomberg’s basic strategy. As demonstrated, he believes he can buy media exposure, indoctrinate sufficient numbers to… Read more »
