There are three, urgent, actionable items needing your attention:
First, the Washoe County School Board of Trustees has removed the Benchmark Social Justice Curriculum from the agenda again. That being said, we believe they are gambling that AB261 will pass (see below). Needless to say, we have their attention! The protest, rally, gathering will continue as planned on May 25th starting at about 1:30pm. Bring signs, 3 minute speeches, enthusiasm and weather appropriate gear (sun, snow, rain….who knows?). This is going to take all of us to keep this curriculum out of our schools. If you cannot attend, please email: publiccomments@washoeschools.

Second is the AB261 bill that we must do our best to stop. This bill mandates CRT in all of the Nevada schools. Write ALL of the senators and also write your opinion on the NELIS site.

Third is SB452 a bill which will negate CCW permits that Nicole Cannizaro has used a false emergency to deviously get SB452 into the legislature. It is basically EVERYTHING that was gutted from AB 286 including “no guns in any covered premises” and has now been regurgitated into SB452. Two weeks left and this is what they pull. We must opine FAST. If Nevadans did NOT want this in AB286, they most certainly do NOT want the same thing in SB452. If you would, we are still dealing with AB286, making criminals out of hobbyists (the ghost gun bill). We must speak up in great numbers!
This from the NRA:
Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro (D-6) used an emergency measure to revive the gun free zone expansion language that was amended out of Assembly Bill 286 earlier this session as a new bill: Senate Bill 452. With less than two weeks remaining in the 2021 legislative session, expect this bill to move quickly. Start contacting your senator today and urge their opposition to SB 452! Senate Bill 452, sponsored by Nicole Cannizzaro (D-6), prohibits law-abiding citizens from being able to defend themselves at certain gaming-connected businesses, such as hotels and shopping malls, if the owners decide to declare it a gun-free zone. This restriction extends to the property line, meaning the firearm prohibition includes open areas like parking lots, with limited exceptions. 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.
Additionally, Assembly Bill 286, legislation to criminalize home built firearms, is eligible for a final vote on the Senate floor as soon as today! Contact your senator today and urge their opposition to AB 286! 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.
