Not a Joke: Over-Reaching Gov. Makes it Practically Illegal to Go Outside, Statewide Stay-at-Home-Order
Using the "state of emergency" as an excuse, Gov. Sisolak has issued a statewide "stay at home" order for Nevada. THIS IS NO APRIL FOOLS' DAY JOKE. It is now practically illegal to go outside or meet other people, except according to the permission of the government. Except there are a lot of exceptions.
This is a blatant, unconstitutional infringement of the right to peaceably assemble and a restriction of personal liberty. It is being done under the excuse of the pandemic. However, if you don't call attention to yourself, it probably won't be enforced. Practically, it cannot be enforced unless you make yourself an easy target.
It is illegal for individuals to gather together. The former "10 or less" rule is out the window now.
If you are homeless, you are exempt.
This stays in effect until April 30, unless Sisolak decrees it lasts longer.
Please someone, for the love of God, file a lawsuit. This is getting to be too much and has no basis in constitutional law. Our civil liberties don't stop because of an emergency. There has to be a limit to what the government can do. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness doesn't mean sit around your house and watch Netflix, waiting for those Trump Bucks to arrive.
This can only really be enforced on the honor system and the disease will still spread in the places people are allowed to go, like grocery stores, because no one wears masks. If we all wore masks when we went out, the social distancing directives would be enough.
We must oppose this kind of tyranny because if it goes unchecked because of a pandemic, then they can impose it for all other kinds of things.
Remember never talk to the police! If they ask where you are going, advise them you are engaging in an excepted activity and leave it at that. The burden of proof is on them.
Remember to go shooting! They can't keep you from doing that.
