NV Dems Statement on Legislation Banning Bump Stocks, Making our Schools, Communities Safer

Today, Governor Sisolak signed legislation making common-sense changes to Nevada’s gun laws that will improve safety in our schools and across our state.

Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II released the following statement:

“No one needs reminding the country’s deadliest mass shooting happened in our backyard when a shooter equipped with bump stocks murdered 58 concert goers in Las Vegas. I am beyond grateful to our leaders for passing legislation to finally ban this dangerous tool. In addition, this legislation establishes extreme risk protection orders to keep guns out of the hands of those who pose a risk of harming themselves or others, and will finally hold gun owners accountable for improperly storing their firearms. I have no doubt this important bill will keep our communities and schools safer. After passing universal background checks earlier this year, Democrats are making good on their promise to make Nevada safer.”
