WASHOE COUNTY, Nev. (KRNV & -- Washoe County District court Administrator Joey Orduna-Hastings has confirmed that, according to a Washoe District Court audit, the court failed to send the names of 179 mentally ill people in northern Nevada to the database that would prohibit them from possessing firearms.

The audit was triggered when the court learned a man who bought a gun from a Reno police officer was mentally ill, but not in the database. 

According to Hastings, the problem is because of a glitch in the system and they say they are addressing that problem.
