Douglas County Commission

Commission may limit types of gun show vendors

October 28, 2001


Bottom Line

Commissioners will consider approval of a resolution that would limit what types of vendors could participate in gun shows at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds.

Now, both federally licensed as well as unlicensed vendors are allowed at gun shows at the fairgrounds. Current federal law requires that all licensed gun dealers perform a background check on anyone wanting to buy a gun at a gun show, but individuals who are not licensed or part of a business are legally allowed to sell guns at shows without doing any background checks.


Commissioners are considering the request after board members with Women's Transitional Care Services, a nonprofit group that helps victims of domestic violence, asked the county in September to tighten its gun show regulations.
