CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada lawmakers are reviewing a bill that would make it easier to carry a concealed firearm in a public building. Republican Assemblyman John Ellison presented AB352 to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday. The measure already passed the Assembly on a 26-14 vote. The bill would allow concealed weapon permit holders to bring a concealed firearm into most any public building, like a police station. Buildings that don't allow guns would need to have a metal detector and a sign outside indicating that policy.
