More women getting training for permits than men!
Since offering FREE* training for women, Armed & Safe classes have been booked since February, with a MAJORITY of women in attendance ($30 cost paid by most, $60 special deal for guys, full scholarships available for those who need it). We will continue this offer IF demand for it continues, so tell your friends to take the class ASAP: June 28th, July 19th, July 26th, August 16th, August 24th. We will be requesting grant money from FRNA for materials to continue this offer. Mark your calendars for August 16th to attend the FRNA fundraising dinner for local pro-gun charities (more below).
2008 Reciprocity for CCW: Nevada has full reciprocity with Florida, Californians can carry in NV on a UT permit ( tell your CA pro-gun friends they can take the 4-hour class in Reno, SAC, or SF BAY area).
CCWs no longer valid for waiving DPS transfer charge : ( Starting July 1st The ATF sent notification letters to Nevada FFL dealers NOT to accept NV CCW permits as a waiver for the NICS ( Brady) checks after July 1st. We do not have all of the answers about why, but we know that we have lost this in the past due to some SOs not doing proper background checks, failing ATF audits. A grassroots effort to get the SOs to accept ATF assistance for compliance restored it for a few years. It appears we have lost it and must fight again.This is a NEVADA GUN TAX!
Get ready to protest the Nevada GUN TAX
The Department of Public Safety (DPS) has been charging Nevada FFL dealers $25 (passed on to all customers without a CCW) for making a call to the Federal NICS system. This is FREE to any states without a 'middle man', or POC, which means it is a gun tax that benefits only the DPS. This is a duplication of government services, a state tax on ALL firearms purchases (beginning July 1st). It does not have the same confidentiality guarantees as the federal system (which destroys records every 90 days). Nevada State Legislature voted to allow the DPS to become a POC, so we will need to follow a legislative reversal process. Since they are out of session at this time, we will not be able to act on this until Fall. Hopefully by the end of this year, we will be able to eliminate the Nevada gun tax for EVERYONE! We will keep you informed on how to protest ( emails, phone calls, petition, testifying) as soon as we know what action is required.
