Something amazing happened in Nevada -- something that would have been inconceivable just a year or two ago.
Thanks to thousands of grassroots supporters like you, the Nevada state legislature just passed a historic bill requiring background checks for all guns sales. But despite overwhelming support from Nevadans, Governor Brian Sandoval has threatened to veto the bill (SB-221).
You don't live in Nevada, so why does this matter to you?
First, Nevada is the second largest source of crime guns used in California. Their weak gun laws allow criminals to buy guns without background checks and then transport them to other states.
Second, what's happening in Nevada right now reflects what's happening all across the country. This year, Legislatures in New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware, Illinois, and Colorado have all passed common sense gun laws strengthening background checks. But the gun lobby keeps trying to override the will of the people, and we can't let them get away with it.
