Yet another Nevada sheriff has announced his opposition to Question 1, the Michael Bloomberg-funded anti-gun ballot initiative on background checks that would affect the law-abiding while being completely ignored by violent criminals.
“The measure would force anyone who loans or sells a firearm to a friend, or even a cousin, to go through a government background check, paying a fee each time,” Allen wrote. “If sellers don’t jump through all these mandates, they could face up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. A second offense, and you could be a felon facing up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
“All the while, actual criminals are free to go about their criminal business, as they ignore the law.”
