Call a Special Session to Implement Firearm Background Checks in Nevada

This petition had 24,081 supporters

In 2013, the Nevada Legislature passed a universal background check bill on all gun sales, which had the support of 87% of Nevada Voters, 75% who said they "strongly favor" the law. When the bill was brought to Governor Sandoval's desk, he caved to the pressure of the NRA and vetoed the bill. Then in 2016, Nevada voters passed Question 1, which would allow for universal background checks, but it was put on a permanent hold by our Republican Attorney General, Adam Laxalt, due to technicalities, subverting the will of the people.

 Sign this petition calling for universal background checks for firearm purchases in Nevada!

As a resident of Las Vegas, I am overwhelmed with emotion after the massacre that occurred overnight. I am OUTRAGED, UPSET, TERRIFIED, and DISTRAUGHT over what happened. I didn't get any sleep on that tragic night, ultimately staying up to watch the news for updates – waiting to see if I knew anybody who was gunned down.

We have had 273 mass shootings in 275 days in our country. THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE when we have measures we can put into place to prevent this from happening – measures that Nevada voters have already voiced their support for.

Please join me in signing and sharing so that we can send a message to Governor Sandoval that he MUST call a Special Session of our State Legislature to implement universal background checks to help prevent any more tragedies from happening in our great state.
