No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session. - Mark Twain
The 2021 Legislative Session begins tomorrow, Monday Feb. 1 and will run until May 31st. Democrats hold control of both houses and the governorship, so it will take your input to stop gun control. We must relentlessly call and email the legislators to make sure no bad gun control bills make it to the governor's desk.
During 2019, we saw many shenanigans pulled, including overnight bill introduction intended to take the opposition (pro-gun people) by surprise while Bloomberg bussed in supporters. This year, the legislature will be virtual, so there will be no in-person testimony or comment time. Everything will be done via virtual conference and video. It's imperative that supporters get spots for video comments when bills come up in committee. No doubt the anti-gun machine will try and game that to shut us and our opinions out.
We Nevadan's must say no more gun control! New gun owners this year must get involved to protect their rights and their new purchases. No one can afford to sit on the sidelines. With the events of 2020 and the disturbingly totalitarian administration occupying the White House, the Second Amendment is the last thing keeping Americans free.
We expect that social media will block us from posting at some point. You MUST bookmark www.nevadacarry.org/blog and the legislative page. Also sign up for the newsletter in case we need to do an emergency email blast. If you haven't joined or donated to the Nevada Firearms Coalition, do it now! In the absence of Facebook posts, come to this website and search the legislative site on your own.
If you hear of or decide to organize a rally, please let us know and we will help spread the word.

When it comes to armed protests or large patriotic gathering around Inauguration Day, be smart and use your head. Don't be part of the herd pushed over the cliff in a buffalo jump or identified by hostile media and law enforcement as "right wing terrorists/extremists."
Many people have been rightly suspicious of plans going around online to protest this coming weekend. The Truth About Guns has an excellent article about these events potentially being false flags.

Some entity with some serious backing/resources created that flyer.
In Nevada in particular, right now is not the time to give the Legislature any ideas.
The Republic is dead, even what passed for its walking dead version (exactly when it reached the zombie stage is debatable). It was a hell of a beautiful run and will teach humanity what is possible if you're willing to live free. It served us well.
While I like to see Americans be Americans, this is my opinion on it all. Batten down the hatches, a storm is coming. It doesn't matter why or what side you're on, it's gonna be bad. Bittersweet I suppose, but with a deeper sense of foreboding.
Why, what should have been done differently, etc. is off the table at this point. Events have taken over. Buckle up, be safe, and remember you answer to yourself, your family, and God. May America and our government wake up and somehow stumble back from this brink for a brighter day.
The certification sessions of the US Congress has been suspended as pro-Trump patriots have breached the US Capitol and reached the House floor. Patriots have scuffled with police. Vice President Pence, senators, and representatives have been evacuated.
Mainstream media is suppressing, skewing, and minimizing what is going on why demonizing Trump protestors. This information comes on scene from people at the Capitol in Washington DC. This moment and these images are historic. Get out there and find the unbiased news; try Twitter and Gab.
Whatever this moment brings, it is historic and part of the hallowed rights enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. However, rebellion and revolution comes at a risk. Whatever happens, the outcome is unknown. Whether it will be good for America or bad, who knows. The revolution has begun.
Not sure who credit should go to, but Elijah Schaffer for the video.
It's not pleasant to see this happening to our country, but that the escape valve has been hit is the fault of a tone-deaf Congress, cowardly courts, and state officials that sought to subvert democracy. Totally ignoring the concerns of Americans and gaslighting them was the wrong thing to do. The allegations should have been taken seriously and seriously disproved. Ultimately to these revolutionaries, they have submitted themselves to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions. Now the events are beyond us. If there is any lesson here, it is that politicians must be responsive to their constituents and not simply dismiss them. Parliament did this to us in the 1760s and 1770s and they lost the colonies for it. I'm not sure what comes next, but surely the responsibility whatever rough beast slouching towards Bethlehem in our future is born of a government that forgot it needed the consent of the people.
