Nevada Sheriff Counters Question 1 In USA Today Op-Ed

posted on October 13, 2016

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.

Washoe County Sheriff Chuck Allen took to the pages of USA Today to explain why Nevada residents should vote “No” on the measure.

“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.”
