(Carson City, NV)  —  Nevadans are very vocal when it comes to their opinions on a recent gun bill passed by the legislature.

Thousands of calls have flooded Governor Brian Sandoval’s office about a bill to expand background checks for private gun buyers.

Anyone obtaining guns in a private transaction would be required to visit a licensed gun dealer for a background check. Failure to do so could result in a gross misdemeanor charge. They would also be barred from possessing guns for two years.

According to the “Las Vegas Sun”, more than 100,000 calls have been recorded, with 44,000 on Monday alone.

The Governor’s office reports most callers are opposed to the bill, which Sandoval has vowed to veto.
