Think Tank Finds Nevada’s Question 1 Lacking

posted on September 16, 2016

An analysis from nonpartisan think tank Kenny Guinn Center for Policy Priorities on Nevada’s Question 1, the anti-gun so-called “universal” background check ballot initiative, echoes points made by the proposal’s opponents. 

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the think tank found, among other things:
  • A claim made by opponents is supported by a Department of Justice survey, which found that less than 1 percent of the criminals obtained a gun through an unlicensed sale at a gun show;
  • If the FBI takes over the operation currently run by the state, Nevada could lose $2.7 million in revenue per year;
  • The law would be a challenge to enforce without a firearm registration scheme;
  • The so-called “reasonable fee” the measure proposes for background checks is not defined.
