Skip to comments.Nevada CCW's again replace "Brady" check!

I found out today that ATFE has reinstated the ability of Nevada CCW holders to use their Nevada CCW permits as an alternative to the $25 Point Of Sale contact in filling out the form 4473 required with each firearm sale.
This is GREAT news, and a testament to the power of gun owner activism.
Initially the Nevada Chief's and Sheriff's Association thought they could simply shrug off the results of several of their members failing an ATFE audit. Their failing the audit resulted in ATFE announcing that Nevada CCW's would no longer be accepted in lieu of a requirement to submit to a $25 Brady check with every firearms purchase.
Nevada citizens and CCW holders were outraged, and very vocal in demanding that they regain ALL of their CCW advantages.
The Nevada sheriff's felt the heat, and quickly decided to comply with all ATFE requirements, so that the prior program would be reinstated.
As posted to the ATFE web-site, Nevada CCW's are again accepted as an alternative to the "Brady Check", as of 1/5/06.
Thanks to all who helped!
We also never learned EXACTLY what was being done wrong, but at least now the problem has been resolved, thanks to ACTIVISM.
We need to continue and expand this activism, more liberals are coming to Nevada every day, it is not going to get any easier to protect our RKBA in Nevada.
Once a person has passed the thorough background check needed for a carry permit, they shouldn't have to go through it again every time they buy a new gun.
Here in Tennessee, we've recently discovered a number of state cops with criminal backgrounds which would prevent them from buying a handgun, much less obtaining a carry permit. I don't know how that squares with the whole notion of "qualified" law enforcement, but I'm sure they'll have a dance to go along with whatever song they come up with.
