Request to Invalidate Background Check Initiative and Other Possible Violations
The group, Nevadans for State Gun Rights, is asking for the invalidation of the "Background Check Initiative" because of a failure to submit the signatures on the same day in each county, as required by law. Apparently, the signatures were submitted everywhere else on November 12th, the day after the November 11th deadline, but not until November 13th in Storey County. Also, there was a major oversight in attaching required affidavits to the actual signature pages submitted.
The actual request for invalidation can be found here.
There has also been questions raised about possible violations of Nevada state law regarding solicitation and signature gathering. As we know, 'Nevadans' for Background Checks, fueled by massive donations from elitists dedicated to trampling out liberty, particularly from billionaire control freak Michael Bloomberg. As Ammoland.com states:
"many of the paid, “volunteers” from [the Washington State I-594 campaign] were transferred to Nevada where some were reported to be paid as much as $5.00 per signature in the initiative petition effort. Local Nevada rights advocates – who actually live in the state and are true grass roots volunteers – say this looks like a violation of Nevada law. They point out that, while paying signature gatherers on an hourly basis is acceptable, paying them commissions per signature, makes the gatherers commission sales people, which is forbidden because it provides incentive for them to distort the intent of the petition. They also point out that Nevada law identifies any door-to-door sales activity – including commissioned signature gathering – as sales, requiring both a business license and a solicitor’s license. Neither the Bloomberg front group nor the “volunteers” had such licenses."
Why fight these battles of technicalities? We are being persecuted by a monster that uses money against us. They do not rely on fact or the true will of the people, but rather lies, obfuscation, and money to fuel their deceptions. They pay people to mislead voters into signing away their rights and they promulgate misleading commercials. 30 seconds of half-truths can sway a lot of uninformed minds.
Let us hope and pray that this battle in the warto strip us of our God-given right to self-defense is our victory.
