Report: Secret Meeting to Criminalize Private Gun Sales in Nevada This Week

The NRA-ILA reports there will be a secret gun control push this Tuesday in Nevada in a special joint judiciary hearing.

The NRA-ILA notes there is no documentation on the specific gun control proposal, but outside groups are rallying gun control activists to support efforts to criminalize private gun sales via universal background checks.

They quote a Battle Born Progress action alert which said, “[Nevada has] a new Governor who has prioritized legislation on gun violence for this current session of the Nevada legislature, we Nevadans can make our voices heard to pass background check legislation once and for all.”

Battle Born Progress notes the universal background check initiative that was passed in 2016 but never implemented, because it was not enforceable as written. They go so far as to suggest the October 1, 2017, Las Vegas shooting was able to occur because the initiative was not being enforced.
