Revived Nevada Bill Would Allow Concealed Guns on Colleges Campuses

Posted: Updated:
Nevada lawmakers are reviewing a revived proposal to allow permit holders to bring concealed guns onto college campuses.

Republican Assemblyman James Oscarson presented Assembly Bill 487 to the Assembly Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

The hot-button measure would allow concealed-weapon permit holders to carry concealed guns on college campuses and store firearms in locked cars.

Oscarson and a handful of Assembly Republicans introduced the bill after helping defeat an amendment adding so-called "campus carry" to a separate Senate bill. He said he wanted to keep the measures separate to give both a better chance of passing.

Republican committee chair Assemblyman Ira Hansen didn't allow testimony on the bill and said similar measures have already been heard by lawmakers.
