Vote NO on Question 1
As we head into the homestretch of this election, NRA Nevadans for Freedom wants to make sure everyone in the Silver State is fully informed about Michael Bloomberg’s Gun Control Question 1 and how it would criminalize virtually every private firearms transfer in the state.
To get the facts, join us on Sunday, October 2nd, from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., at Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas for our Nevada Gun Control Question 1 Breakfast and Campaign Update! At this FREE event, you’ll hear the latest updates from NRA staff and elected officials on our efforts across the state to defeat Question 1, and how you can be actively involved in our fight to protect Second Amendment rights in Nevada.

We need your help to combat this misinformation and to educate voters about the truth of this measure— Bloomberg’s Gun Control Question 1 won’t prevent crime, but it will turn well-meaning, law-abiding Nevadans into criminals!
RSVP today to attend this important meeting on Sunday.
We are pleased to welcome Las Vegas city councilman Stavros Anthony to our campaign for freedom. Anthony was recently featured in a guest column in the Las Vegas Sun pushing back on claims that he and others who opposed Question 1 are “fear-mongering.”
“We are simply looking at how Bloomberg has pushed his gun-control agenda in other states: incrementally. We know that Question 1 will lead to even further restrictions of our rights. Don’t be fooled. Question 1 is not “reasonable gun control.” It is part of a larger national agenda to make it nearly impossible for law-abiding citizens to protect and defend themselves.”
Read Anthony’s guest column below and get additional details at our Red Rock Resort Breakfast and Campaign Update. Also, learn about our neighborhood walk in Henderson on October 1.
We are grateful for all you are doing to defend freedom in the Silver State!

Breaking through the noise in the background checks initiative
Breaking through the noise in the background checks initiative external site
The Sandy Hook shooting in 2012, where 28 people died in a Newtown, Conn. school shooting – including 20 children 7 years old or younger – sparked a national debate on gun violence and legislation. Nevada was no different. In 2013, the Democratic-controlled Legislature narrowly passed a bill that would require background checks on all firearms transfers. However, Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval vetoed the measure, saying it was an “erosion of Nevadans’ Second Amendment rights.” One of his main concerns was that giving a gun to a family member would require a background check. Out of that veto, the Question 1 ballot initiative requiring background checks on all gun transfers was born, especially with no chance in the 2015 Legislature as Republicans controlled both chambers.
Question 1 a first step in eroding Nevada’s gun laws external site
In a recent editorial (“NRA’s wailing doesn’t drown out facts on background checks,” Sept. 4-10 edition), The Sunday claims the Question 1 gun-control ballot initiative is an “attempt at reasonable gun control” and portrays opponents as “fear-mongering.” But in the same breath, The Sunday acknowledges expanded background checks would will not solve gun violence and adds, “it is a step in the right direction.”

Join Governor Sandoval, and sign our pledge to oppose the Question 1 and send a clear message that his New York City anti-gun policies are not welcome in the Battle Born State!


Question: My best friend has just separated from her partner due to a domestic violence incident, and wants to borrow a gun because she thinks he is stalking her. Is this loan allowed under Question 1?
Answer: A temporary loan of a gun to a friend for defensive use isn’t exempted under the initiative unless the loan is “necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm,” and the loan lasts only as long as necessary to prevent such threat. A fear of a possible future attack isn’t enough. Unless these and the other elements of the defensive use exception apply, this loan is allowed only if you and your friend satisfy the background check, paperwork, and fee requirements at a federally licensed gun dealer’s premises.
Question: What is the fee for a firearm transfer under Question 1?
Answer: Question 1 authorizes a licensed dealer to charge a "reasonable fee," but nothing in the initiative sets or limits this fee. Conducting background checks and filling out paperwork for guns that are not part of that dealer's inventory can be time-consuming. Typically, a dealer will charge anywhere between $20 to $50 for processing each private sale or transfer. For example, a non-exempt loan of a firearm will involve an initial fee for the transfer between the owner and borrower, and a second, separate fee for the “transfer” back to the owner.
