Pro-Gun Sheriffs Respond to Nevada Gun Owners

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Last week, the NRA sent an e-mail alert informing Nevadans that the Nevada Sheriffs and Chiefs Association tabled a motion that would have authorized the group's representatives to send a letter to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE).  This letter would ask the BATFE to re-instate the instant background check exemption for Nevada concealed carry weapons (CCW) permit holders.

Currently, seven sheriffs have responded favorably to e-mails and phone calls from both the NRA and our in-state affiliate, the Stillwater Firearms Association, informing us that they want the request to move forward without delay.  Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie responded that he favors waiting until the September 17 association meeting before weighing in - inaction that will result in months of additional background check fees on firearm purchases.

Please contact the seven sheriffs below and thank them for their timely response in support of Nevada's gun owners, AND continue to contact those who have not responded at all OR responded unfavorably to our requests.
