Update: Tell the Legislature to Vote 'No' on Background Checks

Initiative Petition No. 2, Universal Background Checks, is before the Committee on Judiciary. Text here.

The legislature can pass the initiative into law or reject it and in doing so place it on the 2016 ballot.

The legislature cannot ‘kill’ the bill. Unfortunately, the various Bloomberg interest groups have found a method where money, propaganda, and obfuscation can sway the votes. Stopped by Gov. Sandoval’s veto in 2013, they subverted our checks and balances system to pervert our initiative system to put this before the public. They can’t bribe politicians, but they can use slick advertising and deceitful social media posts to fool the uninformed.

Hopefully, the public will release what utter nonsense this bill is and vote it down. It will be tough fight against the wealthy elite’s billions, which is why we must give everything we have to counter this hypocrisy. Call on your legislators, tell your friends the truth about the initiative, and demand that the NRA fight with us.

They shall never win our rights. They will have to steal it with their time, their lies, with their money. We will bleed them dry. We will fight them at every step; on the public square, in the legislature, at the ballot box. The tide of their deceit may wash over us, but it shall not drown us. We will fight and we will remember. Gun control supporters will pass away, but our rights shall remain forever. We will fight and we will win, no matter how grim the horizon might be. We shall have victory, no matter how long and hard the road may be. 

Let the members of the Judiciary Committee know how you feel. Copy and paste their email addresses into your email 'To' field.
