Everytown Loses Big in Nevada

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.”

    1. Maybe these anti-constitutional rights people can write a law that says, it is against the law to break the law.

      Sixty years ago I was in the VL&A store in downtown Chicago. 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 4″ blade was more lethal.
      But old Mayor Daley was happy.
      Today there are no gun stores in Chicago and there are more gun battles than when Al Capone ruled Chicago.
      So much for laws.
      Illinois is on the way back slowly to what it was fifty years ago when I lived in downstate just outside of Springfield. I used to open carry all the time. I grew up on some small acreage outside of town. When I got home from school, pass shooting pigeons and doves before dinner or home-work was daily activity. Never shot anyone, never robbed anybody. I did take a Navy Arms Remington 44 Cap & Ball revolver to Jr Hi with the permission of the principal for history class. All the principal cared about was that it wasn’t loaded. I was worried that it might be stolen from a locker, so I carried it all day in a copy of a civil war era flap holster.
      That would still e legal to do today as long as te principal gave approval in most states.

      Constitutions limit what laws should be passed, legislators and presidents should always consider the constitutionality of a law before they enact it. Yet what they do is add a sentence called “separability” which says if any part of this law if found to be unconstitutional only that part shall be repealed.

    2. 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 sign and force gun control via balloting. Question is, how do such referendums affect existing laws enacted through legislation. If existing legislation cannot be overridden by the referendum process, seems all states except those already being oppressed could simply enact their own versions of Nevada’s new law and eliminate our FUD.
