This November, Nevadans will be asked to vote on one of the most restrictive gun control measures the Silver State has ever seen. The initiative, if passed, would result in virtually every transfer of a firearm in Nevada being subjected to federal record keeping and a background check. The initiative does nothing to stop criminals or address the broken mental health system, but rather creates a massive regulatory scheme that disproportionately impacts law-abiding gun owners.
Criminals, by definition, do not obey the law. And no initiative will force them to start. Criminals will continue to acquire firearms where they do now: the black market, theft, and by other illicit means.
The initiative would criminalize otherwise law-abiding gun owners for simply loaning a firearm to a friend or family member for not complying with excessive requirements.
Question 1 is the latest, most comprehensive attempt to restrict the rights of law-abiding Nevadan gun owners. Don't be fooled. This initiative is more than just a background check bill— it has nothing to do with a "Safer Nevada" or addressing crime. Hidden within its language is a callous attempt to restrict the rights of all law-abiding Nevadans and unknowingly turn them into criminals.
