Skip to comments.You Could Encourage the Nevada Governor to Veto Gun Control!
Posted on 06/07/2013 12:53:19 PM PDT by forty_years
You dont even have to live in Nevada.
But you should know that Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval (R) is trying to decide whether he should sign or veto SB 221, a bill so extreme that the left-of-center United States Senate even voted down a version of it.
If he signs this Universal Background Check bill, it will have ramifications for you -- even if you dont live in the Silver State.
So please call 775-684-5670 and press 2 -- to vote AGAINST the universal background check bill (SB 221). You dont have to live in the state. You dont even have to give your name or address -- the entire process is automated and it will take you less than 13 seconds.
There are many reasons why ALL gun owners from around the country should call.
For starters, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is generating his own calls into the Governors hotline, encouraging Sandoval to sign the background (registration) bill.
Mayor Big Gulp has posted a video where he encourages people from around the country to cast their votes.
But YOUR VOTE could make the difference!
You may not even live in Nevada. And so you may be thinking, Why should I take action on an out-of-state bill?
The reason is that what happens in Nevada wont stay in Nevada!
U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) has been on the fence in regard to universal background checks. He voted right on a key vote back in April, but we had to put a LOT of pressure on him in the state to get him to do so.
Every vote count that the Left made public had Sen. Heller as a possible pick up for their side. And thats why we need to keep Nevada from adopting a universal background check bill. If the Republican Governor signs this bill, it becomes much more likely that this U.S. Senator from Nevada will vote to strap the rest of the country with gun control.
So please call the Governors hotline number -- no matter where you live!
ACTION. Call 775-684-5670 and press 2 -- to vote AGAINST the universal background check bill (SB 221). Again, you dont have to live in the state. As noted above, you dont even have to give your name or address -- the entire process is automated and it will take you less than 13 seconds. So no matter where you live, please make this call for the sake of freedom!
Also, please distribute this alert to EVERY PRO-GUN PERSON you know -- your family and friends, even your enemies -- as long as they are pro-gun! We need to flood this hotline with people pressing 2.
BILL HIGHLIGHTS. There are a lot of problems with SB 221, but these are the key ones for Nevada residents:
* SB 221 would expand background checks -- and hence the framework for gun registration -- to most private gun sales. Even if you live hundreds of miles from a gun shop, if you want to transfer your gun to your next-door neighbor, you and he have to travel together to the gun shop (even if the buyer holds a concealed carry permit!).
* Under most circumstances, when you and your neighbor travel to the gun shop, hes going to have to get a check with the FBI. Given that 8% of these checks result in false denials -- normally because his name is like someone elses -- youll have to stick around the gun shop for three days. Most likely, your neighbor will effectively be denied the right to own a firearm.
* Even if youre a purchaser with a CCW, the dealer has to make a 4473 on you -- and, increasingly, ATF is going around to gun shops and copying (a.k.a., registering) that information.
* If you go through the entire Brady Check procedure and it turns out the purchaser of your firearm -- unbeknownst to you (or the Brady System) -- is a marijuana user, you go to prison.
Bottom line: This is a horrible bill! Please call 775-684-5670 and press 2.
Sad to think this guy has to put his finger in the wind instead of doing what he is Constitutionally sworn to do.
Nevada State Contitution:
Sec. 11. Right to keep and bear arms; civil power supreme. 1. Every citizen has the right to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes. 2. The military shall be subordinate to the civil power; No standing army shall be maintained by this State in time of peace, and in time of War, no appropriation for a standing army shall be for a longer time than two years. [Amended in 1982. Proposed and passed by the 1979 legislature; agreed to and passed by the 1981 legislature; and approved and ratified by the people at the 1982 general election. See: Statutes of Nevada 1979, p. 1986; Statutes of Nevada 1981, p. 2083.]
It is incredibly sad when so many don’t know, have forgotten, or don’t care about the founding principles enshrined in our national and state constitutions.
It’s even worse when those very principles are mocked and held as passé.
This crap is really getting to be too much....grrrrrrr!!
Done, and by as many people as I could round up also.
Thanks to all who’ve voted. If Mayor Big Gulp is getting people to vote for the bill, we’ve got to get as many people as possible to vote against the bill. Please distribute widely.
Call made, lets hope it go’s down in flames!!
The rino repubs are in league with the Nazi socialist liberals, aka democrats.
