NRA Nevadans For Freedom Fact Checker

Question 1 NOT Just About Gun Sales

In a recent headline, KNPR radio in Las Vegas perpetuated an untrue claim that gun control advocates are disingenuously peddling about the Question 1 gun control ballot initiative. The misleading headline to KNPR’s story gives readers with the false impression that Question 1 would only apply to gun sales. 

In fact, the Question 1 gun control ballot initiative would criminalize nearly all private firearms transfers, including loaning a firearm to a friend who may need it for self-protection, or having a friend or coworker store your firearms for you while you are deployed with the military. Under Question 1, if close friends or even fiancés wanted to go shooting on federal BLM land and borrow a firearm, they must first appear jointly at a federally licensed firearms dealer, pay a fee, and undergo a federal background check. When finished, the two must return to a licensed dealer and repeat the process. This would be in addition to the background check the gun owner went through to initially purchase the firearm.

It is critical that voters in Nevada understand that the Question 1 gun control initiative applies not just to gun sales, but to virtually all private firearms transfers.

Note below the misleading headline…don’t let this happen to you!
