Carson City, Nevada: Sheriff Furlong Removes Serial Number Requirement!

Friday, December 14, 2007

Earlier this week, Sheriff Ken Furlong's office informed us that they were not going to require serial numbers on the permit application but there would be no change to the serial number box on the application, thereby creating confusion as to what was a mandate and what was an option.

After flooding his office with calls from members of NRA and the Stillwater Firearms Association asking the Sheriff to amend his permit application, we have just been informed that his office has agreed to remove the serial number box from the applications. 

We would like to thank Sheriff Furlong for his consideration and for making this change.
