With the stroke of a pen this week, Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) made law a measure to reform concealed carry rights and expand castle doctrine in the state.
Signed late Monday was a Senate bill approved by House members last week 25-17 that will expand castle doctrine to include occupied vehicles, as well as scrap Clark County’s outdated “blue card” registration scheme and other reforms.
In his testimony to lawmakers on the measure last month, sponsor Senate Majority Leader Michael Roberson, R-Henderson, held up the proposal as a correction to the state’s gun laws.
“[T]o allow law-abiding gun owners to appropriately defend themselves in their vehicles as they can in their homes, and to ensure that our citizens’ Second Amendment rights are upheld in a fair, uniform way across the state,” Roberson said.
