Nevada Governor Uses Coronavirus Emergency to Illegally Stop Residents From Buying Guns

Assemblyman Jim Marchant is blowing the whistle.

Published

Nevada Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak is using the Chinese coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to usurp the unlawful power to stop the sale of firearms.

Sisolak has been unsuccessful in being able to shut down gun shops, which are considered an essential business due to a law passed in 2007 after Hurricane Katrina, so he is attempting to enact gun control through bureaucratic fiat.

Sisolak has effectively crippled gun ownership in Nevada by denying the State Point of Contact to conduct background checks on behalf of Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) gun stores. This means that only concealed permit holders can buy new weapons under the new orders, which only consists of four percent of Nevadans.

He has also banned the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department from giving out new concealed permit licenses to Nevadans, creating another impediment to stop gun ownership during the crisis. A public information officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police has confirmed that “they are acting under orders of the Office of the Governor of Nevada.” Although he cannot legally shut them down, Sisolak is also pressuring gun stores to close by classifying them as “non-essential” hobby shops.

Sisolak’s edicts violate NRS 414.155, The Constitution of the State of Nevada, Article 1, § 11(1) as well as the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

The specific portion of the state constitution that Sisolak is violating with his orders reads as follows:

Pursuant to Amendment II of the Constitution of the United States and Section 11 of Article 1 of the Constitution of the State of Nevada, and notwithstanding any other provision of law, the emergency powers conferred upon the Governor and upon the executive heads or governing bodies of the political subdivisions of this State must not be construed to allow:
1. The confiscation of a firearm from a person unless the person is:
(a) In unlawful possession of the firearm; or
(b) Unlawfully carrying the firearm; or
2. The imposition of additional restrictions as to the lawful possession, transfer, sale, carrying, storage, display or use of:
(a) Firearms;
(b) Ammunition; or
(c) Components of firearms or ammunition.

Assemblyman Jim Marchant, who is running to be the Republican Congressional nominee for District 4 of Nevada, believes that Sisolak must abdicate public office for his intolerable acts.

“I understand that the government must take steps to protect the public when there is a national pandemic, but the law and our constitutional rights are clear,” said Marchant.

“Governor Sisolak has shown he is either incompetent or corrupt. He has violated his oath of office and must resign,” he added.

Sisolak announced his emergency measures during a press conference on Sunday, touting relief for renters as a way to sell his unconstitutional power grab.

“This directive is intended to keep people in their homes at a time where we’re encouraging all Nevadans to stay home, to stay home for Nevada,” Sisolak said.

Sisolak has also made it more difficult for coronavirus patients to access medicines that could potentially save their lives. He has arguably been the Democrat governor guilty of mismanaging the coronavirus crisis the worst at the state level.

Florida Sheriff Will Deputize Gun Owners if Rioters “Overwhelm” County

He’s not messing around.

Published

A Florida sheriff is pledging to deputize law-abiding gun owners within his county if left-wing rioters “overwhelm” law enforcement.

Darryl Daniels, Clay County Sheriff, made the pledge in a video released on Tuesday morning. He also slammed misinformation and hysteria advanced by the mainstream media, inciting against law enforcement and covering up the criminal activities of lawless rioters.

If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” warned Sheriff Daniels.

The sheriff issued a direct warning to ANTIFA criminals and left-wing rioters hoping to replicate a model of destruction, violence and criminal activity in his jurisdiction, a county just south of Jacksonville.

If you threaten to come to Clay County… And think for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you- you’re sadly mistaken. I know what happens when lawlessness prevails… If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority of the sheriff, and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this country… to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility.”

Daniels has served 29 years in law enforcement, previously serving in the U.S. Navy.
