Preventing Crime & Keeping You Safe
As a former law enforcement agent himself, John is strong advocate of the Second Amendment and has continually been supportive of bills that allow citizens to safely possess firearms for recreational and protection purposes. In 2015 he co-sponsored SB175 that applies the “castle doctrine” to a person’s car, allowing people to protect themselves from car-jacking’s and other offenses. The bill also eliminated the need to register concealed firearms in Clark County, the only county in Nevada that mandates such registration.
John also supported SB240 that strengthened existing mental health reporting requirements. It expands the purposes for which such information may be used without enacting overly restrictive gun control laws and thus upholds our constitutional rights.
