Obama’s been at the forefront of the gun-control movement — and his anti-Second Amendment policies have trickled down into the state of Nevada.
But the Sheriffs aren’t having it — they’re officially rejecting the outgoing president and his fellow gun-control advocates’ leftist agenda.
Reno Gazette-Journal reports:
The next steps for proponents of expanded gun background checks in Nevada are unclear after a legal opinion that for all intents blocks a voter-approved initiative set to go into effect Sunday.
What is clear is that the Background Check Act to require a federal database check of private party gun transfers will not be enforced. That’s according to Nevada sheriffs.
“Based on the Nevada Attorney General’s opinion, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office cannot enforce this law at this time,” said spokesperson Bob Harmon.
The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office put out a statement that it and the Lyon County’s District Attorney’s Office “support” the opinion that the new law is unenforceable, adding “we will not enforce any provisions of this ballot initiative until the issues have been resolved.”
