A: It depends.
In January 2020, Nevada passed a law that made it generally more difficult to transfer or sell firearms between individuals. Whereas, prior to the law, private sales of firearms were not regulated, under the 2020 law, the buyer or the recipient of a gift of a firearm in Nevada must pass a background check through a licensed firearm dealer. If the buyer/recipient does not pass the background check, he may not receive the firearm.
There is an exception, however.
Firearm transfers between spouses or family members are not subject to the restriction. Further, the firearm may also be transferred to an estate executor, administrator or successor trustee during the administration of the estate.
