    Heads up...

    The NV legislature's Advisory Commission on the Administration of Justice will be meeting on 08-28-2012.

    Part of the agenda for that meeting will be discussion on whether or not to implement a state level "assault weapon" ban.
    Information will only be presented by NV law enforcement (most likely LVMPD), CA anti-gun groups and the NRA.
    There will be no public comment for this topic.

    The current chairman of the commission is anti-gun, he's the person who prevented "campus carry" for CCW permit holders and opposed the various "castle doctrine" bills from last session.

    The Advisory Commission on the Administration of Justice will be meeting in...
    Room 3137 of the Legislative Building, 401 S. Carson St., Carson City, NV.
    Videoconferenced to Room 4412 of the Grant Sawyer State Office Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV.

    So what's the plan here? Fill the public seats with 2A advocates to show support for the NRA speaker?

    You say there is more than one Anti group presenting, but only the NRA? That sounds like something that could be challenged as restrictive. If there is only one pro 2A then there should be only one Anti. If there are 3 Anti groups to speak then there should be 2 pro 2A. Could this be used to open the meeting?

    The Nevada Firearms Coalition is asking people to attend to show support, even though they will not be allowed to say anything.

    Initially it was reported that more than one CA anti-gun group was going to be allowed in, but now it appears that they are being limited to one group, the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence (which use to be the Legal Community Against Violence). The reported multiple groups may have been caused by confused over the group's recent name change (unknown why they changed their name).

    Update:

    Sorry for the late update, thanks everyone who turned up to the meeting.

    08-28-12, NRA-ILA press release of outcome of assault weapon ban meeting.

    The recent violence that Chairman Horne spoke of was the recent mass shootings in CO and WI.
    The assault weapon ban agenda for the committee was Chairman Horne's way of capitalizing on the tragedy of those two incidents, in order to pass anti-gun laws in NV.

    NV Assemblyman William Horne (D-34) is currently up for re-election this November.
    Let's work to make sure he is not re-elected.

    Been there and done that.

    Couple of decades ago local state rep ran as pro2A then introduced AWB. Deck stacked 3/1 by Crim Justice committee. "someone" allowed "evidence" from old HCI to be placed on the documents table so every member of the committee picked up HCI propaganda yet neither NRA, the Florida Sportsman's Association (Marion Hammer, please contact her Tallahassee Florida) nor private citizens were allowed to place any factual material on the table. Second meeting was much the same. citizens were only allowed to speak at a thrid meeting of only part of the committee. Committee chairman told me I was wasting my time that the bill was a done deal. WHen citizens did get to speak anti 2a members of the committee badgered the citizens at the podium. in the end only two of the many citizens were allowed to speak.

    The media largely failed to report anything favorable and actually turned off camera lights when the bill sponsor was caught in an out right lie. Only one paper in the state quoted one of the private citizens.

    Bill failed in committee BTW.

    Don't give up. Pack that room. Be polite. Be factual. Be helpful.

    DO CONTACT Marion Hammer (former NRA President) of Florida Sportsman's Association in Tallahassee Florida immediately.
