Background Checks Required for Concealed Weapons Permit Holders
July 10, 2008
If you have a concealed weapons permit, you’ll now have to get a background check every time you buy a new gun.
The federal government is behind the new rule.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says it’s basically because Nevada’s background checks don’t meet the federal requirements.
But, the gun owners and concealed weapons permit aren’t at all happy about the changes.
Frank Morraele owns The Gun Trader and owns several guns himself, “Prior to the first of July, if you had a concealed weapons permit and you wanted to buy a gun, we would document it and that was good instead of calling the state and charging you $25 for a background check.”
To buy a gun and obtain a carry concealed weapons, or C.C.W. permit, someone has to take an all day safety and education class.
