I spoke with my sheriff yesterday. He indicated the majority of the sheriffs & chiefs desire to come to terms with the BATFE regarding reinstatement of our NICS exemption.
The Exec Dir of the NSCA will correspond with the BATFE and try to determine what (if anything) can be done to reinstate Nevada CCW permit holders' NICS exemption.
Either way, I believe the issue needs to addressed and corrected in the 2009 legislative session.
And we should endeavor to scrap our "POC" status in favor of the toll free (800) telephone NICS check. Paying a $25 fee to exercise one's God given and Constitutionally guaranteed right is simply WRONG.

With the budget crisis in Nevada, I would be surprised if the Legislature would pass on this opportunity to put money in the State's coffers.
But then again one never knows what could happen when those of us put pressure on our Legislators.
Any updates on this?
I have been averaging $600.00 a year in superfluous, $25.00 per instance fees...
Since we got screwed out of our CCW exemption...
I could buy another firearm for that...
