Please Contact and Thank Your Nevada Sheriff!

Wednesday, January 11, 2006

As of January 5, 2006, ATF agreed to allow Nevada's CCW permits to qualify as an alternative to a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). As reported by your NRA in 2005, ATF conducted an audit that found a handful of Nevada Sheriffs not in compliance with federal law in relation to their permit issuance process, which resulted in the suspension of the exemption.  Thanks to your letters and phone calls, the Nevada Department of Public Safety and the Nevada Chiefs and Sheriffs Association signed a Memorandum of Understanding addressing the concerns raised by ATF in the audit, thereby allowing the Nevada CCW permits to be an acceptable alternative. 

Please take a moment to contact your local Sheriff to say thank you for their quick action!
