Nevada Background Checks for Gun Purchases, Question 1 is on today’s ballot in Nevada. Las Vegas casino magnate Steve Wynn has pumped a lot of money into the effort to bring “universal background checks” to the Silver State. In the interview above, Mr. Wynn opens his mouth and removes all doubt that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about when it comes to gun purchases. Nor does he seems to grasp the fact that people who aren’t on his payroll like to get a word in edgewise from time-to-time.
In these two characteristics — ignorance and a desire to parade it in public — Mr. Wynn is not alone. From calling magazines “clips” to mistaking semi-automatic for fully-automatic firearms, to recommending that a home defender fire a shotgun through a closed door, gun control advocates display a stunning lack of gun sense (to use their phrase). At the very least you’d think that people advocating from “tougher” gun laws would know existing law.
Why are they so loathe to do any research on guns, gun laws or gun owners?
