(Carson City, NV)  –  The state Senate has narrowly approved a bill requiring background checks for private gun buyers.

Wednesday’s 11-to-10 vote was split along party lines, with Democrats favoring it and Republicans opposed.

Senate Bill 221 would allow licensed gun dealers to charge 30-dollars for the background checks.

The bill now goes to the Assembly.

Governor Brian Sandoval has not yet decided whether to support it.
