Nevada Chiefs and Sheriffs Association Annual Meeting Information!

Tuesday, November 29, 2005

On December 8, the Nevada Chiefs and Sheriffs Association (NCSA) will hold their annual meeting in Mesquite.  On the agenda is a recommendation that all seventeen sheriffs sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to BATFE that they will take the necessary steps to come into compliance with federal law, thereby allowing CCW permit holders to purchase firearms without having to undergo a background check.  As reported in previous alerts, there was a unanimous NCSA vote asking the Department of Public Safety to request an extension of the BATFE deadline for compliance, but since the extension deadline passed, an MOU signed by all sheriffs will accomplish the same goal.  According to an NCSA representative, the sheriffs plan on signing the MOU's put before them on December 8th, however it is vital that NRA members contact their sheriffs prior to the meeting and politely encourage them to do so.

In addition, while you are taking the time to contact your sheriff, please ask them to open the CCW subcommittee hearing to the public during the course of their annual December 8 meeting.  As long as Nevada's sheriffs are the issuing authority for concealed weapon permits, any policy that is made on behalf of permit holders should be held up for scrutiny to the public.
