Oppose SB123: Same Day Register and Vote on Election Day  HEARING: Wed. Feb 20, 4:00pm, Senate Legislative Operations & Elections Committee, Rm 2144, Video conferenced to Rm 4412 of the Grant Sawyer Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV. 

MESSAGE: Oppose SB123 Citizens have many opportunities all year long including at the DMV to register to vote. They should take some responsibility for registering to vote. Registering to Vote on Election Day puts our election system at risk for fraud. (or write your own message)

Background: This bill allows people to register to vote on Election Day, for all elections including Primaries. To register to vote they must appear at one or more sites designated by the county or city clerk to register to vote, complete an application to register to vote and provide proof of identity and residence. The voter may vote only at the polling place where he registered to vote. Nevada’s law now allows people to register to vote 1) by mail by the fourth Tuesday before the election (that’s one week) 2) by appearing in person by at the office of the county or city clerk by the third Tuesday preceding an election (that’s two weeks), now we have automatic voter registration when you go to the DMV and you can register to vote online. Are people so irresponsible that they find it impossible to register to vote in advance? 

The Problem with Same Day Voter Registration (Fraud)https://www.americanmajority.org/vote-fraud/the-problem-with-same-day-voter-registration/“Same-day Voter Registration requires the voter to complete the application and provide “proof of residence” documentation. Ballots for same-day registrants are counted in that election but the actual registration is not verified until AFTER Election Day…For example, in the 2008 election, 62,000 voters registered on Election Day ALONE in the City of Milwaukee. How many of those registrations were actually legitimate? But all of their votes were counted in the election.” Does anyone find it odd that 62,000 had forgone any other option for registering and decided to wait until Election Day?

Oppose Big Brother Automated Traffic Cameras Giving Tickets HEARING: Tuesday Feb 19, 1:30pm, Senate Growth & Infrastructure Committee, Room 2135, Video conferenced to Room 4412E of the Grant Sawyer Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV. 

MESSAGE: Oppose SB43 Auto Traffic Cameras which will give tickets. This is Big Brother and another scheme to pick the pockets of citizens. It is ripe for abuse with private companies holding way too much information on individual citizens. (or write your own message) 

CONTACT: [email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected] 

Background information: SB43 changes Nevada law to allow tickets to be issued through traffic cameras. The minimum administrative fine will be $50 and if you don’t pay in a month it goes up to $100. The purpose of this law is to increase revenues for local governments…another revenue stream. As of 2018 at least 7 states were trying to ban red-light cameras. One problem is that tickets are issued to the owner of the car whether or not they are driving and they have to prove they weren’t driving. Arizona State Rep. Travis Grantham, “I think everyone in the country should be concerned about this type of law enforcement action, especially when it’s so ripe with corruption.” In one case in Arizona in 2016, a former traffic light enforcement camera vendor was sentenced to prison for bribery and fraud. “The practice of privatizing law enforcement actions is just wrong,” Grantham said. “Every aspect of it is wrong. When you add the equation of for-profit into the mix, it presents a lot of opportunity for fraud and abuse.” Brantham said the third-party companies are holding too much data about motorists… 

Sixteen municipalities have held public referenda against these programs, all successful. Major cities like Los Angeles, Atlanta, Raleigh and Houston have rejected red-light cameras after initially approving them. Almost every state with red-light cameras has spurred citizen opposition groups with mad-as-hell names like, “Ban the Cams”, “Wrong on Red,” and “Highway Robbery.” Americans feel rightly outraged when they believe others game the system to use the law as a way to pick their pockets. They get incensed to discover that contracts with private camera vendors can dictate policing and safety practices even when the public has weighed in against those practices.

Please pray for the Legislature and the Governor. The Whole Senate will vote today (Wednesday) at 11am on SB143 It’s important to email! Report Joint Hearing SB143 Universal Background Checks Creating a Culture of Compliance 

Perhaps the most alarming testimony on SB143 was that of the attorney Rosen speaking with Senator Atkinson the sponsor. When asked a question about enforcement he answered that the real purpose of SB143 was to Create a Culture of Compliance! Because of course we know that only law-abiding citizens will obey the law and criminals never will. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were designed by our Founders to Create a Culture of Liberty and Individual Self-Reliance. The Joint hearing of the Senate & Assembly Judiciary Committees on SB143 on Tuesday, Feb. 12th, started at 8:15am and lasted until 5pm with a break for the Senate and Assembly Floor Sessions at 11am. The people opposing SB143 vastly outnumbered the proponents some 500 to 50. Everyone who was willing to wait nearly all day was given the opportunity to speak. The proponents ran out of people to testify but the opponents kept going until 5pm. I was extremely thankful and proud of all those who showed up at the hearing in Carson and Las Vegas. Each person including Governor Sisolak, and AG Aaron Ford were given 2 minutes to testify. It was fair in that way. Although we can anticipate losing this battle, the numbers and the excellent, well-informed testimony of opponents will have an impact, causing fear in the hearts of the Democrats. Keep praying for them. Just know that every person who came and every person who testified was a blessing to the cause of liberty. Every email and every call added to the weight of truth placed before our opponents. We don’t win every battle but as we seek the Lord and exercise our rights of petitioning the Legislature for redress of grievances and exercise freedom of speech, the Lord will bless our efforts. THANKS!!! The Judiciary Committees took a short break and the Senate Committee reconvened and voted SB143 out of committee on a party line vote with Democrats Senators Cannizarro, Harris, Ohrenschall, Marilyn Donder-Loop, and Melanie Scheible voting in favor. Republican Senators Hammond, Hansen and Pickard voted no. The Republicans complained about the language of the bill not being available until 11am the previous day which gave no time to submit amendments. Their concerns were disregarded by the Chair Cannizarro. The whole Senate then convened and placed SB143 on Second Reading which means the whole Senate will vote on SB143 today at their 11am session. We can expect a strict party line vote with 13 Democrats voting Yes and 8 Republicans voting NO. It’s still important to EMAILKeep up the heat!!!

We expect that the Assembly Judiciary will vote tomorrow morning at 8am and then it will go to the floor for a vote of the entire Assembly and then be sent to the Governor. I will send another alert on the Assembly. MESSAGE to Democrats on the Senate Judiciary 

I am very disappointed in your disregard of public opinion and your fast tracking of SB143 for universal background checks which will not make us safer but will lead to law abiding citizens being charged with a crime. It will ultimately lead to gun registration. (or write your own message)

Good afternoon,
With control of the Legislature and the Governor’s mansion, Democrats have decided their first item on the agenda is to rush and pass a sweeping gun control bill that won’t stop a single crime and only punishes law-abiding citizens.

And even more disgraceful, they have abandoned the normal process so that they can speed the legislation to Governor Sisolak’s desk in record time.

In fact, they are rushing so quickly, they didn’t even make their bill public until today even though the hearing on the bill is tomorrow morning.
It’s shameful.

But we can fight back. The hearing begins at 8 a.m. in room 1214 in the Legislative Building in Carson City. If you are in southern Nevada and want to testify via videoconference, you can do so in room 4412 in the Grant Sawyer Building. Its address is 555 E. Washington Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101.

If you are able to attend the hearing in either Carson City or Las Vegas tomorrow and testify, please do so. Email Josh at [email protected] and let him know you’ll be attending.

If you can’t make it to the hearing, you can still be heard. Find your legislator here and call or email them today.

We can’t let this despicable charade go without a fight. Please attend tomorrow’s hearing or call your legislator and let them know that these political games won’t be tolerated.
Sincerely,
Michael J. McDonald

   Background check bill number SB143Bill Draft Request language available: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/80th2019/BDR/BDR80_15-0755.pdf

It’s very important to attend the hearing, call and email!You can now share your opinion online because we have a bill number:Share your opinion online: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/80th2019/We now have room numbers for the hearing Carson 1214, Las Vegas 4412 

ALERT from Senator Settelmeyer 2/7/10SB143: “The background check legislation that was declared unenforceable by then Attorney General Laxalt will be heard Tuesday at the Nevada legislature. It will be heard at a special joint meeting of the Senate and Assembly Judiciary committee at 8:00 am. If you want to be heard please show up and testify. In order to be heard I suggest not being repetitive and just say me to or ditto if your point has already been said, but get your name on the record. (sign in) 

The language has not been released and will not be available until Monday. Contact the members of Senate and Assembly Judiciary as well as the committee so your concerns are on the official record by email.” 

Explanation: Background checks are currently required for gun sales if they are through a dealer. This legislation exempts close family members and people who are hunting together with some other exceptions. (See the language of the BDR) Private owners, if they want to sell a gun must go to a licensed dealer, and both the seller and the buyer must have background checks through the dealer and pay a “reasonable” fee to the dealer.  Criminals already violate the gun laws. Only law abiding citizens will get background checks. As Professor John Lott’s book says, More Guns, Less Crime. Research shows background check have done little to lower crime rates.  

HEARING: Tuesday,February 12, 8am, Be there early! Room in Carson City 1214 at the State Legislature. Teleconferenced to Room 4412 Las Vegas at the Grant Sawyer State Office Building, 555 E. Washington Ave. Watch online:  https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Calendar/A/

MESSAGE: Vote NO on SB143. Do not infringe on my right to keep and bear arms. Only law abiding citizens will follow a law requiring background checks not criminals. Do not impose background checks on law abiding citizens for private sales. When law abiding citizens have more guns there is less crime.
