CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — One Nevada Assemblyman wants Nevada to fight any attempts by the Obama administration to restrict gun rights through executive order.
Republican Assemblyman Jim Wheeler of Minden introduced AB196 during the Assembly floor session Monday.
The bill requires the Nevada attorney general's office to sue the federal government if an effort to infringe on the Second Amendment comes via an executive order. The governor's office could mandate the action, or the attorney general could proceed without gubernatorial direction if an executive order qualifies.
The measure does not cover laws passed by Congress.
