An update to Henderson’s firearms ordinance was withdrawn from Tuesday’s City Council meeting.
Henderson officials are planning to amend its weapons and missile ordinance to clarify the language of the 1954 law.
The Nevada Firearms Coalition opposed the ordinance, claiming it violates state law.
In 1989, Nevada lawmakers barred cities from regulating firearms usage, but Henderson’s ordinance was grandfathered in.
City officials and the coalition have sparred over whether Henderson can update the ordinance or if it should be eliminated altogether.
There is no scheduled date for when the bill will be discussed again.
The City Council also postponed a conditional-use permit for Carnegie Senior Living to the Aug. 6 meeting.
The Henderson Planning Commission approved the plan of the four-story assisted-living facility despite a city staff report that recommended denial of the project.
Homeowners near the project argued the facility would create traffic problems in the intersection of Carnegie Street and Horizon Ridge Parkway.
