Nevada UBC Fails

The expansion of gun background checks approved by Nevada voters last month will not happen as expected, based on an opinion released Wednesday by the Nevada Attorney General’s Office.
Because the text of the new Background Check Act says private-party transfers and sales must be done through the FBI background check system, the Nevada Attorney General’s Office opinion states, “citizens may not be prosecuted for their inability to comply with the Act unless and until the FBI changes its public position and agrees to conduct the background checks consistent with the Act.”

In a statement, the attorney general’s office said, “without this central feature (the FBI background check), the Background Check Act cannot commence.”
Nevada AG Opinion and FBI Letter

Well, Bloomberg blew $20 in Nevada now, $6 million in Main. Someday it'll add up to real money.

Great news for the citizens of Nevada!
I commend the AG of Nevada for standing up to the anti gun crowd and doing the right thing for its citizens who elected him.
I know nothing about the Nevada AG, but this opinion speaks highly of his character and integrity.
Other politicians could learn something form this AG!

The seven P's don't appear anywhere in the Bloomberg playbook.

What we really need are public phones on the street corners in gang territories. Then, the drug dealers can call in a NICS check when they trade guns. Or maybe have a free NICS app that they can download on their free Obama phones.

The NV AG seems to be pro-gun even if the voters are not.

What I find interesting about the law was how poorly it was written. The State legislators are drafting gun laws to expand background checks without knowing who their POC is for background checks in the state? It figures. The liberals who wrote the bill obviously know nothing about guns, just feel good politics. Incredible waste of taxpayer dollars that might have passed had they researched the subject.

“[T]he recent passage of the Nevada legislation regarding background checks for private sales cannot dictate how federal resources are applied,” Kimberly Del Greco of the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division informed the Nevada Department of Public Safety in a Dec. 14 letter, meaning the FBI would not allow intermediaries to run background checks as required by the Act. Based on a resulting department clarification request to Laxalt on how to proceed, the attorney general concluded “citizens may not be prosecuted for their inability to comply with the Act unless and until the FBI changes its public position and agrees to conduct the background checks consistent with the Act.” (See correspondence here, posted by the Reno Gazette Journal.)
Nevada Failure

This was not a legislative failure. this was Bloomberg's failure, lock, stock and barrel:

Anti-Gunners Shot Themselves in the Foot

This language of the poorly-written law and the method chosen, the popular initiative system, doomed Question 1. The law provided no alternative to use the state system (it specifically required the federal NICS system), and per the state constitution, the law cannot be altered for three years, so there is no quick correction. The anti-gun authors didn't plan for the contingency that the FBI would not play along with their scheme. In fact, the same core version of the law has been traveling from state to state since 2012, gradually evolving as each state exposed flaws in the law.
Bloomberg's cronies blew it.

For all of you in other states: Hint: Organize a State Association now, focused on ALL shooting disciplines and sports, and get to work now. Do not wait for the NRA, start NOW. That is how you might beat Bloomberg, like Maine did.

Bloomberg will return.

Great to see this happen. The AG opposed the measure, as did the governor and most sheriffs. It was the metropolitan Clark County that pushed this piece of excrement through, by a very slim margin.

But you can be sure Bloomie's people will be more careful when they write the next batch.
