((brian loftus)) >> it's really important to understand both sides. this is what we found. nia wong joins us live in studio to break them down. nia? ((nia wong)) >> when it comes to question 1 right now...unlicensed gun sellers don't have to get a federal background check to transfer gun ownership. this would require licensed dealers to run a federal background check before selling or transferring guns. if question 1 passes...this could lead to jail time or fines between 1000-10,000 dollars. those against the question believe it's a waste of time...money and infringes on second amendment rights. ((lt. ray steiber - metro pd homicide, retired: "what were saying is two strangers coming together for the sale of a gun, you need to have a background check, know who you're dealing with, know who you're selling to.)) ryan hamilton - deputy dir., nra-nevadans for freedom:

((pat hickey - no on 2: i mean people in both colorado and washington state even oregon, there's been a significant increase in accidents, either from people that have been impaired and they're driving, hurting themselves, and in fact hurting others.)) ((nia wong)) >> even though marijuana dispensaries would be limited in how close they could be to schools and community centers...those against the question say this doesn't do enough to protect kids. ((nia wong)) >> if these two questions pass....they will move forward to becoming law. but not all advisory coming up in the next half hour we'll explore the remaining questions that will go to the general election ballot in 2018 if passed. brian and kirsten.
