Nevada Legislature: Bill allowing concealed guns on colleges passes hurdle

A bill allowing concealed firearms on college campuses and airports has passed out of a Nevada Assembly committee.

The Assembly Judiciary Committee voted to approve AB 148 and a host of other gun-related bills on Wednesday on mostly party-line votes with unanimous Republican support.

The “campus carry” bill was amended to include language allowing for guns to be kept in locked cars in the parking lots of schools. The amended bill would require written permission from school officials to bring a concealed firearm onto a K-12 campus or to a daycare center.

The committee also approved bills allowing for foster parents to carry and store guns in their home and allowing Nevada to recognize out-of-state concealed weapon permits.

The bills now head toward a vote of the full Assembly.
