VP Harris to visit Las Vegas for fourth time this year

Updated April 11, 2024 - 7:47 pm

Vice President Kamala Harris will visit Las Vegas on Monday to discuss the impact of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, signed into law in 2022, expands mental health services and also made strides in gun control.

On Tuesday, the Biden administration announced new regulations from the Department of Justice that will expand background checks for the purchase of a firearm, as provided in the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. The new regulations will require gun dealers to conduct background checks when someone tries to buy a gun through non-traditional gun stores, such as at gun shows or flea markets.

Harris’ Monday visit will mark her fourth trip to the Silver State in 2024, and her 12th time since taking office.

She last traveled to Las Vegas in March to rally supporters in North Las Vegas. She has also recently visited Las Vegas to congratulate the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 on their new contract deals.
