The Republicans sink ever further into extremism and oblivion. Real Americans welcome their coming demise.

Rather weak excuse for a veto since other states already have background checks.

The Nevada congress thought differently and the bill had overwhelming approval from the electorate. I have to laugh at his hotline for citizens to call in with their opinion before the vote, amateur hour.

Yeah, lol, politicians actually asking the opinion of constituents who put them in office to represent them is a little outdated and amateur, isn't it

The Sheriffs and Chiefs association were against it also.
I am for background checks myself and have no issue with it.

Well, as the only person to post on here that is actually from Nevada, thank you governor I will remember this next election day. People from Nevada love their guns, and it is not uncommon for someone to give a firearm as a present to a family member. This bill would have required that in order to do so, you would have had to do a background check between family members. This is why the governor vetoed the bill. This piece of legislation was nothing more than a knee jerk response to the Sandy Hook shooting and I for one am glad it was vetoed.

More than 100,000 calls came in, and the Las Vegas Sun reported that about three quarters
of them were people against the bill.
Sounds like he made the right call....

Well if you're going to let people that call in determine your course of action on a bill that has already been passed by the legislature then the answer is yes. There were 100,000 out of around 2M voters, who knows if there was any screening to verify their status, maybe they could call in multiple times.

Maybe he could just step down and let them run the state like American idol, who needs a governor when you can just have residents vote in a telephone poll.
