Nevada’s Dramatic Expansion Of Background Checks Creating Confusion

posted on November 24, 2016

On Nov. 8, Nevada voters voted to dramatically expand background checks to cover every private gun sale. The measure, passed by the narrowest of margins, was backed by $19 million in out-of-state money from Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety, but the majority of local law enforcement opposed it. Now, confused gun store owners are demonstrating why. 

Questions about the new law abound, i.e., what happens when a private sale background check, conducted by a gun store, is denied? State law requires the gun be booked into the gun store’s inventory; the new state law seems to allow the gun to be returned to the owner, but federal law requires another background check to do so. 

“We still haven’t received any guidance from anybody,” said David Famiglietti, owner of New Frontier Armory. Speaking to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Famiglietti said, “There’s a bunch of people in charge on the government level, but no one is taking charge.”
