As mentioned in this week’s IVLV newsletter, the 77th Legislative session for Nevada ended this week with some interesting bills/resolutions passed and now awaits final approval by the governor or next major election. Gun Background Check (Senate Bill 221) passed and now awaits governor’s signature. Do you think it is good or bad to have the state of Nevada require a gun background check before adults can purchase guns regardless of where they buy the guns, including private party sales?   What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!  (See other readers’ opinions below.)

Reader Poll Replies:

My opinion is simple.  if you have to register a dog, a car, etc., you might as well make people register a gun, no matter how they buy it. I would like to be able to buy a hand gun.  Jennifer Powers  Canada

There is nothing wrong with registration, if it does not limit what you can buy.  Greg Lorensen  Dallas TX

Stricter laws will not stop the illegal sales of guns. The sale of guns will continue for the criminals unabated. As has been said many times, laws only apply to the honest citizens of this country. All others continue business as usual. The road to hell is paved with good
intentions.  Nick Cignetti  North Canton, OH

It is my opinion all States should run a background. Check .the problem is who decides yes or no? Thanks John Redyke  Houston Texas

Check by gun dealers are OK, but person to person sales is an intrusion on privacy. Besides how would you enforce the law on person to person sales? Like all other gun laws all they do is make things hard for the law abiding people. The bad guys will always get guns,no matter how many laws are passed.  Don Bartlett  Indianapolis, Indiana

get the government out of our lives so much!! just prosecute the bad guys and stop making a mockery of the court suystem. ie: aurora , co shootings. the army shooting my the islamist. what a joke our country has become!  let the good guys buy and sell guns as they please!  Jeffrey Prindle  lancaster. ca

I believe that Background Checks regardless where they Buy the Guns is a +Positive Thing. However I Hope that Nevada Never goes to where "Nanny" Bloomberg wants to Go. Limiting Magazines is Dangerous. If it were Not Police would still Carry Six Shooters.  Tom Schulz  Broollyn NY

I think it's a good idea to background check anyone purchasing a gun. Just imagine if they wouldve been doing extensive checks on people all along maybe we wouldnt have lost so many people to gunfire. Their are so many low life peeple with bad intentions who for the right price can own a handgun and its so sad. They only want to buy them to mass destruct people and if they want to buy for recreation then they should have no
problem with the extensive background checks, all in all its for our safety.  Lisa Loy Mableton   United States
