Assembly Bill 286, sponsored by Assembly Member Sandra Jauregui (D-41), essentially bans home-built firearms for personal use by imposing requirements that far exceed those in federal law. It prohibits private individuals from possessing certain unregulated components commonly used by hobbyists to make their own firearms. This confiscatory bill also bans possession of existing, legal, firearms without serial numbers, such as home-built firearms, but it does exempt pre-1969 firearms. This exemption covers firearms made before federal law required licensed manufacturers and importers to place serial numbers on their commercially produced or imported firearms.

Senate Bill 452, sponsored by Nicole Cannizzaro (D-6), prohibits anyone, including concealed carry permit holders, from possessing a firearm at certain “covered premises,” which includes all real property containing a licensed gaming establishment owned and operated by a person with an unrestricted gaming license, absent narrow and limited circumstances, or if an individual has written consent. The bill contains no requirements for gun-free businesses to provide any security measures to guarantee the safety of disarmed patrons, such as security guards or metal detectors, to prevent armed criminals from ignoring the arbitrary boundaries and entering.
Again, please contact your Assembly member and ask them to OPPOSE SB 452 and also contact Gov. Sisolak to ask him to VETO AB 286.
