A Blue Card Bonfire In Las Vegas

posted on June 17, 2015

What happens in Vegas will no longer stay in Vegas … at least not when it comes to Clark County’s gun registry. The infamous “blue card” ordinance—a law requiring registration of handguns—has come to an end with Gov. Brian Sandoval’s signing of Senate Bill 175. And with it, the 67-year cache of gun owner information will also come to an end, as the Las Vegas Metro Police Department has announced that they will destroy the 1.4 million handgun registrations. 

“The records must be destroyed after one year,” said Officer Jesse Roybal, spokesman for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Office of Public Information. “We still have paper, digital and microfiche registrations. We will physically make sure the paper and microfiche are shredded and the digital registrations are deleted.”

That’s welcome news for gun owners in the county, some of whom have already held blue card shredding parties.
