Governor Sandoval Opposes Question 1!

Governor Sandoval Opposes Question 1!

Nevada Governor, Brian Sandoval (R), reaffirmed his support of individual rights and the Second Amendment with his recent statement against Bloomberg’s gun control initiative, Question 1. “The governor does not support Question 1.  He has concerns that this measure would dilute the legitimate rights of law-abiding Nevadans and that it does not actually address the complex issue of keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals,” said Mari St. Martin, spokesperson for Governor Sandoval.

“As the people of Nevada learn the truth about Question One gun control initiative, opposition mounts. Governor Sandoval knows that Question One would not prevent criminals from obtaining firearms and would instead cost Nevadans time, money, and freedom. We’re excited to have the Governor join the growing coalition of Nevadans committed to defendi​ng freedom from Bloomberg’s extreme gun control agenda.” – Robert Uithoven, NRA Nevadans for Freedom, Campaign Director

Please call Governor Sandoval at (775) 684-5670 and thank him for continued support of the Second Amendment and opposition to Question 1!

Question 1 would make common firearm transfers illegal unless conducted through a federally licensed firearms dealer, absent limited and narrow exceptions (so-called "universal" background checks).

This November, Nevadans will have the opportunity to vote down this unnecessary and unenforceable proposal which Governor Sandoval already vetoed in 2013.  Bloomberg’s NYC propaganda may say this is a gun safety measure, but we all know that this measure has nothing to do with safety or addressing crime and would only impact law-abiding Nevadans.  It’s important that Nevadans stand up for their rights and not let New York City money influence the future of Nevada! 

VOTE NO ON QUESTION #1!
