2. Highlights around the Country
1. Chapter Meeting Next Wednesday (Feb. 25th) – Our next Nevada-Placer Brady Chapter meeting is on Wednesday, Feb. 25th at 7 pm at the Auburn Library (350 Nevada Street, Auburn). Join us to learn the latest on legislation, projects, and the inside story in the State Capitol. Come be with kindred spirits who really care about gun violence!
2. Highlights of what has been going on around the country for the Brady Campaign:
Texas: Brady Campaign engaged advocates to fight the open carry on campus bill proposed in the state senate.
Nevada: Brady Campaign staff attended the Ballot Initiative Strategy Conference in Las Vegas to learn strategies that will come in handy this year in states with ballot initiatives. (Nevada will have a background check initiative next year.)
New Hampshire: New Hampshire state legislation introduced to expand background checks to all gun sales, HB 650, is scheduled for a hearing in the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee on February 19.
Vermont: State legislation introduced to expand Brady background checks to all gun sales, S.31, was the subject of a raucous hearing on Tuesday, Feb. 10th. Click here to read all about it!
Oregon: The Oregon state legislative session has begun and so has the Brady Campaign’s efforts, working with Brady chapters, to expand background checks to all gun sales in Oregon. Working with allies in the state, Brady wants to bring home another state victory on background checks. If Oregon passes legislation to expand background checks on all gun sales, it will become the sixth state to do so since 2013 and the eighth state overall. (California has had universal background checks since 1991.)
California: Deadline for introducing bills is next week. Stay tuned!
