The Nevada legislature, in the face of inaction from Washington and at the urging a huge majority of Nevada voters, has passed a law that would require universal background checks for all gun sales in Nevada.
Governor Sandoval has threatened to veto the bill, despite the widespread bi-partisan support for universal background checks from voters and even within the NRA’s membership.
Nevada’s lax gun laws are responsible for thousands of illegal guns flooding the streets in neighboring California. Vetoing this legislation would be a tragedy for all Nevadans, putting them at significantly greater risk of suffering gun violence.
That’s why I signed a petition to Brian Sandoval, Governor of Nevada, which says:
“Gov. Sandoval “Don’t veto SB 221. Stand with 86% of Nevadans and sign universal background checks into law.””
