A gun rights group is trying to show some Second-Amendment pride with a new license plate design for Nevada drivers.
According to this story from Fox News, the Nevada Firearms Coalition recently unveiled four license plate designs highlighting gun rights. The group is asking state residents to pick their favorite, which they then plan to present to the state Department of Motor Vehicles to be put into production.
Technically it would be a personalized license plate. The group is also seeking donations, since creating a license plate design in Nevada requires a $5,000 grant, according to the story.
Each plate design bears the slogan “Protect the Second Amendment” at the bottom. Two designs feature a Revolutionary War-era soldier with a musket, one of which includes the state’s slogan, “Battle Born.” Another bears the silhouette of a cowboy on horseback with a pistol in his hand, and the final design features an illustration of what appears to be a Colt Single Action Army pistol with a long barrel in front of the state crest and slogan.
The Nevada DMV gets the final say and can reject any license plate design, but Nevada is a historically gun-friendly state and has some of the most lenient gun laws in the country. There is no permit or license required to purchase a firearm in Nevada, nor do they have to be registered. It’s a “shall issue” state when it comes to concealed carry permits, and open carry is also permitted. There are also no restrictions on NFA firearms such as short-barreled rifles, selective-fire full-auto firearms, stocked pistols, or suppressors.
