NRA Nevadans For Freedom Video Exposes Truth About Question 1 Gun Control Ballot Initiative

NRA Nevadans for Freedom today unveiled a video that exposes the truth about Nevada's Question 1 gun control ballot initiative. The video highlights scenarios that illustrate how the gun control initiative would cost law-abiding gun owners their time, money, and freedom.  

Art and Cindi Clark whose son, Branson, was murdered in a 1998 shooting in Reno appear in the video expressing their opposition to the initiative. The couple admonish anti-gun billionaire Michael Blomberg for exploiting victims of crime to push his gun control agenda  on law-abiding Nevadans.

"Michael Bloomberg does not have permission to hijack my tragedy," says Cindi Clark. "This law would not have prevented what happened to my son."  (Watch)

Also featured in the video is Nevada rancher and state Sen. James Settelmeyer. He also opposes the initiative saying it would turn ranch hands into criminals for everyday activities on the ranch.

"This is a working ranch, and so we have ranch rifles," says Settelmeyer. "And if this passes, an employee will not have the ability to have a ranch gun in their vehicle without first going down and talking to a firearms dealer and then at the end of the day, they'd have to transfer the gun back. It gains nothing." (Watch)

Finally, Sheriff Ron Unger of Lander County comes out against the measure, saying, "If a criminal wants to get a gun, he's going to go get a gun, period. What Bloomberg's doing is going to make criminals out of law-abiding citizens." (Watch)

 

More excerpts from the video: 

"If you're at a gun range and you want to trade guns, you commit a misdemeanor and the second time it's a felony. I mean, come on!"  Art Clark (Watch)

"It absolutely disgusts me. As long as I am sheriff, I won't enforce that. I don't have enough deputies to enforce stuff like that." Sheriff Ron Unger  (Watch)

"They've got their goals set, the goals are to dissarm the United States citizens. And I think they're trying their doggonest to do it." Sheriff Ron Unger (Watch)

 

NRA Nevadans for Freedom will promote the video on social media as part of its grassroots campaign to defeat Question 1.
