LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — As thousands of gun-rights activists crowd the streets around Virginia’s Capitol on Monday to protest gun-control legislation, here in Las Vegas some are expressing their opposition to Nevada's new red flag law.

The law allows police to temporarily remove guns from people deemed to be a threat to themselves or others.


People opposing the law gathered at Valkyrie Combat gun shop on Sunday.

They say it's unconstitutional, while others say it will help prevent some cases of gun violence.

The gun show loophole will also be closed in Nevada. This means, almost all private gun sales must go through a state background check, by a federally licensed firearm dealer.
