Nevada Chief Law Enforcement Officer Opposes Question 1 Gun Control Ballot Initiative

Reno, NV - Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt today announced his opposition to Question 1, the gun-control ballot initiative financed by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and out-of-state anti-gun activists.  Attorney General Laxalt, Nevada's chief law enforcement officer, joins the majority of Nevada sheriffs in opposition to the gun control measure that would prohibit virtually all private transfers and make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights by imposing unlimited fees and increased bureaucratic paperwork. Nevada law enforcement officials agree that the gun control initiative would cost law-abiding Nevadans time and money but would not  prevent criminals from obtaining firearms.

"As the state's chief law enforcement officer, I take seriously my duty to ensure that my fellow Nevadans are safe," Laxalt said. "I have carefully reviewed the Question 1 initiative and have concluded that it would not prevent criminals from obtaining firearms and would instead cost Nevadans time, money, and freedom."

Laxalt joins Governor Brian Sandoval and a majority of Nevada's sheriffs in opposing the Question 1 gun control ballot initiative.

"Attorney General Laxalt is not only the top elected law enforcement officer in Nevada, he is also one of the most respected,” said Robert Uithoven, campaign manager for NRA Nevadans for Freedom. "We are honored that Laxalt would join our grassroots coalition fighting for freedom in Nevada. Laxalt has always put service to his country and fellow Nevadans first. He knows that Question 1 is part of larger political agenda aimed at restricting our Second Amendment rights and has nothing to do with public safety."

Laxalt served as a Navy and Federal Prosecutor and Judge Advocate General in the U.S. Navy. While serving in Iraq, Laxalt assisted with the detention and prosecution of thousands of war criminals and terrorists. After serving in the Navy, Laxalt practiced as a private attorney in Nevada before being elected as Nevada’s 33rd Attorney General. 

NRA Nevadans for Freedom is leading a grassroots campaign in Nevada to defeat the Question One gun control initiative. The following grassroots leaders have joined the effort: Sheriff Ken Furlong (Carson City), Sheriff Ben Trotter (Churchill County), Sheriff Ron Pierini (Douglas County), Sheriff Jim Pitts, (Elko County), Sheriff Keith Logan (Eureka County), Sheriff Ron Unger (Lander County), Sheriff Kerry Lee (Lincoln County), Sheriff Al McNeil (Lyon County), Sheriff Sharon Wehrly (Nye County), Sheriff Gerald Antinoro (Storey County), Sheriff Chuck Allen (Washoe County), Sheriff Mike Allen (Humboldt County), Sheriff Jerry Allen (Pershing County), Sheriff Dan Watts (White Pine County), Senator James Settelmeyer (Minden), Senator Don Gustavson (Sparks), Niger Innis (Nevadans for State Gun Rights), Art & Cindi Clark (parents of murdered son).
