Despite opposition, gun bills move forward

Nevada Assembly members have approved several gun-focused bills including a proposal to bar schools from punishing students who play with toy firearms.

Assembly members voted 27-14 on Wednesday to approve AB121.

Republican Assemblyman Jim Wheeler is sponsoring the bill, which would forbid schools from punishing students that play with toy guns or pretend to use a firearm in a non-disruptive manner.

Wheeler is also sponsoring AB139, which the Assembly approved on a 24-17 vote. The measure allows out-of-state concealed weapon permits to be recognized in Nevada.

Assembly members also voted to approve AB100, which requires the attorney general to take legal action if he or she determines a presidential executive order is infringing on 2nd Amendment rights.
