The Libertarian Party of Nevada announces a major political initiative with a petition calling upon the Board of Commissioners of Clark County to repeal Clark County Ordinances[masked] and[masked] which require handgun registration by residents of the Clark County and by visitors who stay longer than 60 days in Clark County. The Libertarian Party of Nevada considers handgun registration an infringement upon “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” Furthermore, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, which enforces these ordinances, has a history of abuse by using pistol registration against law-abiding citizens. Police have used the ordinance to confiscate weapons from citizens whose only "crime" is failing to register. Furthermore, the registration scheme is harmful to citizens who are in danger of this information being made public or suffering from abuse by law enforcement officials. Handgun registration has been an abject failure wherever it has been attempted. The law has failed to aid in the resolution of any crime and is an enormous waste of taxpayer dollars costing as much as $2 million dollars annually to administer. In the depressed economy of Southern Nevada this money would better be returned to taxpayers to stimulate the local economy.

The Libertarian Party would also like to point out that repealing these ordinances will put Clark County in conformance with State Law regarding guns, allowing Clark County residents to enjoy the same freedoms as those of citizens in other parts of our state.

The petition can be found on http://www.change.or...un-registration. For more information contact the Libertarian Party of Nevada by phone at[masked] or by email at [address removed].
