Governor Sandoval Appoints Anti-Hunting Activist to the Nevada Wildlife Commission

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Governor Brian Sandoval recently appointed the President of the Las Vegas Valley Humane Society, Karen Summers Layne, to the Nevada Wildlife Commission.  Due to Layne’s outspoken opposition to bear hunting and trapping, this appointment has caused an uproar in the pro-gun and pro-hunting community.                                                                                                                     

The Nevada Wildlife Commission establishes policy on issues vital to hunters such as how elk, mule deer, and other big game species are managed.  Additionally, commission tasks include setting annual quotas on how many hunting tags are issued, deciding which hunter groups can use which weapons when hunting certain game, and much more.

The NRA will always defend the rights of hunters and sportsmen.  Hunting is a viable and necessary means of wildlife management, conservation and wise use of our renewable wildlife resources.

Please call and e-mail the Governor today to express your concern about and opposition to his appointment of an anti-hunting "animal rights" activist to this important commission.  Governor Sandoval can be contacted by telephone at (775) 684-5670 or by e-mail using this online form.
