VIN SUPRYNOWICZ: Background checks to double this week
Some 8,450 Clark County residents -- about 14,000 Nevadans, statewide -- have gone through the onerous process of acquiring a concealed firearms permit.
It's not easy or cheap. You have to take a $100 class, pass a written safety exam, demonstrate safe gun handling and marksmanship at a shooting range, submit to fingerprinting and being "mug-shotted" like a common criminal, pay the state another $105, and then wait three months for an FBI criminal background check.

Nevada is the state that keeps re-electing Dingy Harry Reid. There is hope for Nevada in that it borders the reddest state in the union.

Indeed, the state is turning bluer almost every month. The article mentioned in passing that the background check fee now was $25. Originally it was $15, with the promise that it would be used only to buy the necessary computers, after which it would be reduced/repealed. As of this legislative session, it went to $25, without even a complimentary jar of vaseline.
