Petition Closed

The Clark County Handgun Registration Program was developed to control the use of guns by the mob. That no longer applies to Clark County. The Sheriff's Department is estimated to be $68 million over budget and the approximate cost of the registration program is $2 million, and the Sheriff wants more tax money to operate. The Sheriff has not been able to justify any cost benefits of this program. These funds can be better used to put deputies back on to patrol by eliminating a wasteful program. The destruction of outdated records will save storage costs and eliminate personal information no longer necessary to be retained by the County. The Sheriff failed to audit the program per Commission request, so an independent audit is required.
