Public records show little benefit from handgun-registration program
LAS VEGAS — After months of inquiries, the Las Vegas Metro Police Department has partially pulled back the curtain on its handgun-registration program.
Responding to a Nevada Journal public-record request, Metro on Dec. 17 provided copies of departmental correspondence between it and the National Rifle Association in January and March of 2010.
Throughout the correspondence, Metro acknowledges that it collects little data that might serve to justify the existence of the program to critics.
