According to Laxalt’s letter last year, Question 1’s requirement that private gun owners transfer their firearms through a local gun store where an FBI background check would be performed (not the Nevada State system) was unenforceable because the FBI refused to do the background checks. But now following the Vegas Shooting, the FBI may have some more wiggle room and may work with the state. So AG Laxalt has given his permission to Gov. Sandoval to resubmit a request to the FBI to perform the back checks for private gun transfers.
