Fmr. sheriff supports expanded background checks on gun sales

LAS VEGAS -- Advocates of universal background checks for gun purchases launched a new effort Monday. This one has the endorsement of former Clark County Sheriff Bill Young.

Young is helping Nevadans for Background Checks collect 100,000 signatures on its petition to get a measure on the 2016 ballot that would require background checks for most gun sales.

The former sheriff, who is now vice president of security at Station Casinos has pretty much stayed out of the spotlight since leaving office.

So the fact that he is publicly supporting this new push for universal background checks on all gun buyers is of note, in part, because he is a strong supporter of the right to bear arms.

According to the group, right now in Nevada, felons, domestic abusers, and people with severe mental illness can purchase guns from unlicensed sellers at gun shows and online with no questions asked.
