To buy a handgun from a licensed dealer -- or even to reclaim it from a pawnshop -- Nevada residents have to either show they`ve gone through the rigorous background check required to carry a state concealed firearms permit, or else submit at the time of each acquisition to a new, federally required background check. But Clark County has long enforced its own handgun registration ordinance. Local licensed dealers also issue the Southern Nevada purchaser a "blue card" as evidence the firearm has been registered with Las Vegas police. Those arriving from out of town are expected to go in and register their handguns -- with no grace period.
