    Default Nevada: Action Alert - Tracking Nevada Gun Owners...

    The Nevada State Special Session of the Legislature meets this week on Tuesday. They are looking for ways to fill the budget deficit and don’t think they have overlooked the cash that has been spent on guns and ammo in the last year.
    This message is urgent and we need your action immediately.
    The legislature is considering a means of “revenue enhancement” that would make privacy for CCW holders a huge problem. This is the exact same bill that was rejected by the legislature last year.
    InsureNet is lobbying for this bill so they can install 1,000’s of camera or “scanners” on nearly all of Nevada’s public roads. If it passes it would allow InsureNet, to photograph/scan every license plate on our roads. This data would be scanned and analyzed by InsureNet for the purpose of catching uninsured motorists. It’s a nice premise but it comes with some serious problems.
    The problem is, in Nevada, every CCW holder has essentially given up his/her right to privacy. The minute you ask the government for “permission” to lawfully carry concealed, your license plate and vehicle registration is noted as a CCW holder. In other words, those who have jumped through the hoops of paying for the privilege to carry a lawful firearm—these lawful gun owners would be captured by an unaccountable, out of state corporate entities database! We constantly hear of databases being hacked. Do you understand the ramifications of this bill? Can you see the possibility for misuse? Gun owners did not create the spending problem at the state level. And gun owners should not have to fear privacy violations by an out-of-state corporation just because of being a CCW holder.
    You know how unaccountable our state legislators can be to gun owners. A private business has even less accountability to you. What if someday we have a truly anti-gun Governor (think Obama)? What if the Governor wanted to know which CCW holders were at a particular “political rally?” Do you see the problems this can cause now and in the future? This bill must NOT be the answer to our states over-spending. Gun owners need to tell their legislative representatives that the right to privacy as a gun owner is already too heavily compromised by the Unconstitutional permit system.
    Nevadans do not need more cameras taking pictures of our auto license plates. Of course everyone needs to have car insurance. But this idea is being introduced because our state government is spending money like the proverbial drunken sailors that they are. Lawful concealed carry holders should not be subjected to this level of potential violation of privacy.
    When the Nevada state legislature did not pass this bill last year, they were thinking clearly. They are not thinking clearly now. They are seeing dollars signs and they are NOT thinking of you or your CCW. Do NOT allow them to pass this bill that would make it too easy for the rights of law abiding gun owners like you to be violated.
    Contact your representatives immediately. Tell them “NO to InsureNet”. Tell them NO to scanning our license plates.
    Tell them that until lawful Nevada gun owners can carry a self defense weapon as they do in Alaska (permit optional) that you do NOT want any type of ‘scanning’ of license plates. Constitutional Carry (permit optional) is moving ahead in Iowa, Arizona, Texas and many other states. Why not Nevada?
    They need to hear from you. Spread the word. Do not just post this message on bulletin boards and forums. Do not just email this message to your gun buddies. You must call. It is imperative.
    Emails are great but it is really too late. If you are going to email, please go here.
    Email the Nevada Assembly

    *******************************************
    Dear Member of the Nevada Legislature:
    During this Special Session, fix the budget problem without scanning license plates.
    I believe everyone should have auto insurance but I do not want an out of State Corporation to set up 1,000’s of cameras on Nevada roads.
    Privacy is too important to be entrusted to a no-bid contract with InsureNet or with any other private company.

    Sincerely,

    your name here...

    Hey now...

    In my view in respect to Gun Laws; Clark County, Las Vegas, Nevada is better than anywhere in Massachusetts, California, Hawaii, Maryland & D.C. as well as those you mentioned...

    Not that I think any State currently has a fundamental understanding of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" except maybe Alaska & Vermont and Vermont is going down hill with their Self-Proclaimed Socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Saunders...

    In California we are not required to take our hand guns down to the local PD and register each one on a Blue Card we MUST carry with us when we have a hand gun.

    Clark County is a lot more restrictive than California.

    The state's DMV already has a database with all of the license plate #s. Why would they need to hire a service to scan vehicles? Just another lucrative contract using taxpayer dollars for an uneeded "service".

    NC has a simple system for assuring that driver's are insured. 1) You must show proof of insurance before they will issue a license plate. 2) If an owner cancels his insurance, or if teh insurance company cancels his policy, the insurance company is required to advise the DMV the policy has been cancelled. The DMV will then confiscate the plate. If you sell a vehicle, or take it out of service for any reason and no longer have it insured, you must return the plate to the DMV.

    No insurance, no license plate. And no cameras needed.

    In all fairness, the system is not perfect, but the incidence of uninsured drivers in NC is very low.

    No such thing in Nevada anywhere...

    No charge for the blue card...

    California-legal firearms?

    No such thing in Nevada...

    Nevada does not have a approved firearms list that you must comply with...

    Nevada is a SHALL ISSUE CCW State...

    As far as I can tell California is a MAY ISSUE STATE...

    California does not recognize anybody's CCW Permits as far as I can tell...
    Nevada recognizes most of them...

    No requirements to lockup or dissemble your firearms when they are not in your hand here in Nevada; as I understand it many have died in California home invasions due to this particular issue...

    Nevada has no open carry or vehicle weapons requirements...
    You can have your locked and loaded Desert Eagle in your lap as your driving around town/state if you like...

    Nevada has no magazine, or scary weapons bans...

    in the BATFE's book of State Firearms Laws, California takes the cake with nearly 20% of all the state specific firearms laws in the country...
    Massachusetts is like 3rd or 4th...

    California has the highest Brady Bunch Gun Law Approval of any state in the country... meaning the most constrained, second amendment infringing...

    Nevada has no banned ammo, or ammo purchase log requirements as the RINO Govenator just signed...

    While I can find a lot to complain about Nevada, as I live here in Vegas; I am sad to say in my view; the state of my birth California is the worst place in the country to live if you want to own any kind of weapon...

    Careful examination of these authoritative links show that California is #1 and Nevada is #9.
