Nevada lawmakers want to shove more gun control down law-abiding Nevadans throats.
LasVegasNow reports that the first hearing for Assembly Bill 291, Nevada’s bump stock ban bill, was held.
AB 291 is being marketed as the “1 October Bill” in commemoration of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, which subsequently catalyzed a massive wave of gun control throughout 2018.
When it was discovered that the perpetrator Stephen Paddock used bump stocks to carry out the massacre, lawmakers nationwide threw a fit. They argued that bump stocks make semi-automatic guns fire like automatic weapons.
Despite congressmen like Thomas Massie arguing that bump stocks are not as effective as the media and political fear-mongerers would like people to believe, gun controllers insist on banning these accessories.
This bill was introduced by assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui who survived the October 1 massacre.
Anti-gun group Moms Demand Action endorses this legislation.
Moms Demand Action activist Kristee Watson said, “AB 291 makes sense to me because it will actually save lives and prevent trauma and that is the goal of our organization.”
Julie Hereford, a member of the non-profit Nevadans Can, opposes this bill.
She said, “The bill really doesn’t cure the problem that these mentally disturbed people are killing people” and also infringes on the rights of law-abiding Nevadans.
With a Democratic trifecta in the Nevada State Legislature, it’s very likely that AB 291 will pass.
Nevada is one of the few states that witnessed a blue wave on the gun control issue during the 2018 elections.
Bump stocks have faced pushback from gun owners though.
BLP recently reported on gun store owner Michael Cargill filing a lawsuit against the ATF for the federal government’s latest bump stock ban.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
