The proposals killed included limiting gun purchases to one a month, raising the legal age to buy firearms from 18 to 21 and banning “bump stocks” like those used by the gunman who killed 58 people in Las Vegas in 2017.
One measure, which would empower courts to take weapons when people are found to be a risk to themselves or others, remains on life support.
A motion to kill the bill and send it to the state Crime Commission for study failed on a tie vote in the Senate Courts of Justice Committee.
But so did a motion to send the legislation on to the full Senate. So the bill could be reconsidered later, when an odd number of members are present to prevent a tie.
