Nye County passed a resolution, 2019-39, on New Years' Eve to confirm their status as a Second Amendment Sanctuary County. As part of the resolution, the county will not use public funds to support gun control. Sheriff Werhly also has stated in the past that she will not enforce the background check laws.
While Nye County deputies may not be enforcing the law, this does not preclude the state Attorney General's office from prosecuting. It is not known if the Nye County district attorney will investigate or prosecute violations. Cross-county jurisdictional investigations are also a possibility. Stay tuned for how this will play out.
