    Yep. This is going to be Big.

    Going to need EVERYONES' support.

    From the NRA-ILA:
    Cosponsors Needed for the Nevada Campus Protection Act

    State Senator John Lee (D-01) is requesting the NRA's help to gather cosponsors for his Campus Carry measure which, while currently in draft form as Bill Draft 742, will be in print next week.

    In order to gain momentum and lay the groundwork for this important right-to-carry measure, it is extremely important that BDR 742, when it is assigned a Senate Bill number, has as many cosponsors as possible prior to its first policy committee hearing later this month.

    This measure would remove the discretion provision in the current Concealed Carry Weapon laws that require permit holders to request permission to carry on property owned by the Nevada System of Higher Education. It is extremely rare for a University President to grant permission to a permit holder to carry on campus, thereby creating a defenseless position for Nevada's law-abiding gun owners.

    Please contact your state Senator and Assemblyman TODAY and ask that they join with Senator Lee and place their names on this important piece of legislation. Contact information for your legislators can be found by clicking here: www.capwiz.com/nra/state/main/?state=NV&view=myofficials
    You can also find your legislator(s) here: www.leg.state.nv.us

    More to come soon on this bill.

    I haven't had time to post everything on this site.

    I hope no one minds me posting this link, but I have been trying to keep info posted here: http://nevadashooters.com/index.php (in addition to the SFA website.)

    There is a LOT going on in our legislature. Everyone is encouraged to take part.

    Do we have many pro-gun legislators? You bet we do! But they NEED YOUR SUPPORT.

    So I was looking through the poll comments and we now have a descenting remark in opposition to SB 231, it reads; "I work at the University of Nevada Reno at the Student Health Center. I feel you will make our site less safe with students with concealed firearms. We have student with mental illness and are unstable. Can you guarantee they won't get a gun!"

    Thank you for making my argument for me. You have mentally unstable people on campus whom no one can guarantee with absolute certainty will not find a way to get a gun. I think I want my firearm on campus with me now, more than I ever did.
