Most Nevada Sheriffs Oppose Question 1

posted on August 2, 2016

As anti-gun activists and out-of-state billionaires continue to push a restrictive background check initiative in Nevada, the law enforcement community is lining up against the scheme.

The Associated Press reported on Monday that most of the elected sheriffs in the state oppose Michael Bloomberg-backed Question 1, which punitively restricts firearm transfers in a way that will target law-abiding gun owners, not violent criminals.

“It merely places more restrictions on good people, will make it more difficult, and incur unnecessary costs for law-abiding citizens to manage their personal property,” Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly told the AP. Kenny Furlong, sheriff in Carson City, is also speaking out against the initiative. “Any bill that does not address mental health, which I believe to be the core cause of the violence we've had across the country, does not meet my expectations,” he said. “Mental health has to be addressed.”
