Nevada SB 452 is Dead; AB 286 Moves on to Governor

We were hoping for a comment from Senator Ira Hansen (who originally announced SB 452 was dead) on what stalled and eventually killed the bill but couldn't wait any longer. If we hear why we will let you know!

Senate Bill 452, that would have made it a Gross Misdemeanor to Carry a Firearm in a Gaming Establishment if they had signs posted prohibiting them on their premises, never made it out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee before the Nevada Legislature's 81st session came to a close on May 31st.

The Nevada State Legislators adjourned the the legislative session Sine Die (without day) which means they ended the legislative session with a final adjournment of the once every two-year session without any further meetings to be scheduled or business to be heard.

The bill, modeled after text that was included in Section 2 of AB 286 but with some further amendments, was passed by the Nevada Senate the week earlier and was then transferred over to the same Assembly that had stripped the almost exact same text out of AB 286 which would have eventually killed the entire bill.

AB 286 was passed out of the Assembly and then the Senate and was sent to the Governor on May 27th, 2021. AB 286 will make it illegal to possess, purchase, transport or receive an unfinished frame or receiver (aka 80% lower) unless:

  1. the person is a firearms importer or manufacturer; or
  2. the unfinished frame or receiver is required to be, and has been, imprinted with a serial number

AB 286 also prohibits a person from selling, offering to sell or transferring an unfinished frame or receiver unless:

  1. the person is a firearms importer or manufacturer and the recipient of the unfinished frame or receiver is a firearms importer or manufacturer; or
  2. the unfinished frame or receiver is required to be, and has been, imprinted with a serial number.

Section 4 of AB 286 prohibits a person from manufacturing or causing to be manufactured or assembling or causing to be assembled a firearm that is not imprinted with a serial number issued by a firearms importer or manufacturer in accordance with federal law and any regulations adopted thereunder unless the firearm is:

  1. rendered permanently inoperable;
  2. an antique; or
  3. a collector’s item, curio or relic.

Section 5  prohibits a person from possessing, selling, offering to sell, transferring, purchasing, transporting or receiving a firearm that is not imprinted with a serial number issued by a firearms importer or manufacturer in accordance with federal law and any regulations adopted thereunder unless:

  1. the person is a law enforcement agency or a firearms importer or manufacturer; or
  2. the firearm is rendered permanently inoperable, was manufactured before 1969or is an antique, collector’s item, curio or relic.

Section 5.5 provides that nothing in sections 3-5 shall be deemed to prohibit the sale of an unfinished frame or receiver or firearm that is not imprinted with a serial number to a firearms importer or manufacturer or a licensed dealer before January 1, 2022.
 

Everyone expected Governor Sisolak to sign the bill right away but we are guessing he was hoping to sign AB286 and SB452 together. But now that the legislative session is over and SB 452 was shelved we can expect him to sign (or not sign) it in the coming days.

Everyone is encouraged to keep contacting the Governor and urge him to VETO it: https://gov.nv.gov/Contact/Contact/

I agree and according to my calculations I believe the last day for him to sign it would be Tuesday June 8th as it says it was delivered to the Governor on May 27th, 2021. If not signed or vetoed it will become law on June 9th...
