    SB 92 as amended

    Anyone got any thoughts on this bill? I'm reading it and it's making my head hurt. My understanding is that this bill takes out the open carry bans, but I'm not so sure.

    My understanding of SB92...

    It effectively removes the Clark County (Las Vegas is in Clark County) requirement for gun registration for non-residents. If the bill passes into law non-residents will have 60 days to remain in the county before their gun must be registered.

    This is great if the Nevada CCW Reciprocity bill passes. This will allow non-residents to carry concealed on some state's permits without needing to register their carry gun in Clark County.

    If SB92 were to pass without the Nevada Reciprocity bill passing, it would eliminate the need for non-residents to register their openly carried concealable weapons. Since loaded car carry is legal in Nevada non-residents could also have a loaded, unregistered, gun in their car.

    The bill only applies to Clark County because it is the only place requiring the registration of concealable firearms.

    This is generally correct, but the bill goes still further.

    The new code has the effect of preemption in the event a local legislative body does not change their law to conform by Jan 1, 2008.

    Moreover, it provides not just the 60 day grace period before a firearm brought into the jurisdiction must be registered, it also allows that 5 days may elapse before a firearm already in the jurisdiction must be registered after sale to a person living there.

    But it does not end the registration requirement. AFAICT it would have no effect on open carry, unless a particular open carry ordinance had a registration provision.

    BUT I am not a lawyer, you should seek legal advice on the matter before you try to act under the provisions of the bill.
