Lyon County Commissioners Reject Gun Background Check Law
Lyon County Board of Commissioners vote 5-0 approving a resolution that opposes the state’s recently passed gun background check law.
Lyon County Board of Commissioners have approved a resolution opposing the state’s recently passed gun background check law.
The motion passed 5-0 Thursday morning.
The law requires background checks on all gun sales including between private parties.
The resolution would state Lyon County’s support of the Second Amendment and reject any law that would restrict a person's access to guns.
Similar moves have been made by Douglas County and the sheriffs of Pershing and Eureka counties making those counties so-called "Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties."
Governor Steve Sisolak says he wants to work with Nevada counties to make sure the background check law is implemented and enforced.
Nye, Elko and Douglas Counties also passed resolutions to inform the Nevada Legislature of their opposition of the bill.
