Everyone is getting excited over their rural sheriffs making statements that they disagree with SB 143, banning private gun sales, and their county's symbolic resolutions opposing further gun control. Frankly, as morale boosting as these statements and resolutions are, what is needed is opposition to AB 291 which would end state preemption of firearm laws.
This bill would subject people from rural Nevada traveling into urban areas to gun laws they might know about. We must all stand together or we all will lose our rights. Get involved. See the bottom of this post on how you can do that.
Right now, liberal sanctuary counties and states simply ignore federal immigration law without consequence. Are rural counties willing to do that when it comes to gun control? Do we really want to test whether or not Nye County can pass ordinances nullifying state law? Nip the problems in the bud now.
Rural folks: email and call your commissioners now to have them write and testify to the Assembly Judiciary Committee that ending preemption is a bad idea. We cannot let urban Nevada strip the entire state of its rights.
