ALERT from Senator Settelmeyer 2/7/10SB143: “The background check legislation that was declared unenforceable by then Attorney General Laxalt will be heard Tuesday at the Nevada legislature. It will be heard at a special joint meeting of the Senate and Assembly Judiciary committee at 8:00 am. If you want to be heard please show up and testify. In order to be heard I suggest not being repetitive and just say me to or ditto if your point has already been said, but get your name on the record. (sign in) 

The language has not been released and will not be available until Monday. Contact the members of Senate and Assembly Judiciary as well as the committee so your concerns are on the official record by email.” 

Explanation: Background checks are currently required for gun sales if they are through a dealer. This legislation exempts close family members and people who are hunting together with some other exceptions. (See the language of the BDR) Private owners, if they want to sell a gun must go to a licensed dealer, and both the seller and the buyer must have background checks through the dealer and pay a “reasonable” fee to the dealer.  Criminals already violate the gun laws. Only law abiding citizens will get background checks. As Professor John Lott’s book says, More Guns, Less Crime. Research shows background check have done little to lower crime rates.  

HEARING: Tuesday,February 12, 8am, Be there early! Room in Carson City 1214 at the State Legislature. Teleconferenced to Room 4412 Las Vegas at the Grant Sawyer State Office Building, 555 E. Washington Ave. Watch online:  https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Calendar/A/

MESSAGE: Vote NO on SB143. Do not infringe on my right to keep and bear arms. Only law abiding citizens will follow a law requiring background checks not criminals. Do not impose background checks on law abiding citizens for private sales. When law abiding citizens have more guns there is less crime.
