PERSHING COUNTY, NV - Local activists are pushing to outlaw minors at Burning Man.

According to the Lovelock Review-Miner, Winnemucca Bureau of Land Management Supervisor Gene Seidlitz says he believes the county sheriff may have the authority to enforce an age restriction. The BLM governs public land use and other federal concerns, but not local regulations regarding minors at events.

Pershing County Sheriff Richard Machado told the Lovelock Review-Mine, a minimum age limit makes sense and he’ll talk to the Pershing County District Attorney and the state attorney general to see if that is possible.
