Multiple sources have informed Nevada Carry that the Democrats intend to ram gun control bills through on Tuesday, February 12th at 8 AM. They can’t win fairly, so they want to cheat. Some of you may have received Senator James Settlemeyer’s email about background checks. The NRA-ILA is also saying they're trying to fix their background check screw-up they blamed Attorney General Laxalt and the FBI for.
They intend to do this by convening a joint session of both the Senate and Assembly Judiciary Committees so that they can avoid multiple public hearings and plenty of opportunity for public input. The meeting and agendas aren’t even on the calendar yet because they didn’t want us to know.
Since most of the gun control bills are just drafts, or not filed at all, they are likely planning on introducing bills late at night on Monday, so no one has a chance to read them. “You have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.”
They carefully tried to keep this from going public until the last minute to create the illusion of overwhelming support for gun control with their lackeys in the anti-gun movement invited to a special “rally.”
If they succeed, they can pass the bills out of committee and the floor votes can be held as a mere formality to send them to the governor. Imagine the worst gun control bills, without any public input or chance for improvement, signed into law before we have a chance to react.
Stop their surprise attack. We don’t know if they are going are just background checks—banning private gun sales—or more right now.
