HEARINGS ON GUN BILLS
We have received word that Senate Judiciary Chairman Greg Brower has not scheduled hearings on several of our gun bills. We are hearing conflicting reports on whether he intends to schedule hearings; at this point it appears he has decided that he will not bring Campus Carry to a hearing.
We need your help NOW to show Chairman Greg Brower how much support there is for all of the gun bills awaiting hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Click here to send a letter to the committee asking them to urge Senator Brower to schedule the vote.
The committee has until May 15th to vote these bills out of committee or they won't move forward this legislative session. The members of Senate Judiciary need to hear from Nevadans. Please contact them and please help us spread the word. This bill will not move forward without your help.
