Communication Between State Agencies, NRA Sought By Law Firm

A Las Vegas law firm that was hired to represent the group Nevadans for Background Checks filed a massive public records request this week in pursuit of communication between state agencies, police departments, the FBI and the National Rifle Association.

The gun background check measure was blocked from its planned January 1st implementation because the FBI refused to perform the background checks.

Nevada voters approved the ballot initiative to expand firearm background checks to private party sales and transfers.

The Las Vegas Review Journal reportsthat records requests were submitted Monday to the Nevada offices of Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, the Department of Public Safety, and sheriff’s departments in Carson City, Washoe County and Story County.

The requests seek communication between staffers about Question 1 and any correspondence with the National Rifle Association. A request was also submitted to the FBI.
