Guns I

Nevada’s Guinn Center, a public policy study institute in Las Vegas, wants no part of being a National Rifle Association talking point on ballot Question One, which provides for background checks in private gun sales.

The NRA’s Catherine Mortensen issued a statement last week arguing that a recent Guinn analysis of ballot Question One tends to support the NRA stance on four points.

The Guinn Center said in a statement that it prefers voters read its information firsthand, not the spin made of it: “We would encourage voters to read our Fact Sheets to better understand the complexity of the issues. The Guinn Center does not take a position on the ballot measures.”
