Newly designated Assembly Majority Leader Michele Fiore (R-Las Vegas) says Republicans were elected to the majority to defeat liberalism and that includes doing what has to be done to recover gun rights in Nevada.
Speaking to the Las Vegas Review-Journal on December 3, Fiore said: “We’re getting our gun rights back this session, period.”
She said constituents can expect to see bills allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry guns for self-defense on campuses of the Nevada System of Higher Education. She also says she wants to see high schools adopt “rifle clubs” again, so young people are exposed to firearm safety and responsible gun ownership.
In addition to expanding the exercise of gun rights in this way, Fiore says she will push for the repeal of gun control measures on the books. She specifically said she “would push for bills eliminating Clark County’s ‘blue card’ gun registration program.”
The “blue card” program requires individuals who buy a handgun in Clark County to register the weapon with the police. Fiore wants that registration program ended.
In addition to recovering gun rights, Fiore also plans to push a Voter ID law for Nevada.
