A gun control group in Nevada is running a signature drive to force a ballot initiative with the goal to require background checks on all gun sales, including private ones. From the Reno Gazette-Journal:
The source links given by Nevadans for Background Checks do not lead to any independent research on gun background checks, but lead solely back to statements by a gun-control advocacy group that are unsupported and ignore conflicting evidence. That said, one of the claims â€” that â€śmillionsâ€ť of guns were sold in 2012 without background checks â€” is likely true.
Stricter gun background checks may be helpful in reducing gun violence. They may not. But using vague source citations and flawed evidence does not help make oneâ€™s case.
Truth meter: 3 (out of 10)
Read the whole thing because there’s a pretty good fisking given to most of the claims by Nevadans for Background Checks.
