  • Anti-Gunner Calls Out Mike Rowe for Speaking at Pro-Gun Dinner. He Sets Her Straight.

    Mike Rowe. What else is there to say about the guy? He loves his country and he loves to shoot guns. He is all about hard-working Americans, and once an anti-gun advocate messaged him on Facebook to discourage his decision to speak at the SHOT show he put her in her place. Off The Wall Marla W writes... I just read that you’re speaking at the SHOT show in Las Vegas this week. VERY disappointing. There are already too many guns in this country, and too much faux patriotism surrounding the second amendment. I can’t believe you’d risk your good...

    Christmas just kept coming last year for the NRA crowd in Nevada. Three days after the holiday, Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt gave them another gift when he announced that the November ballot measure on universal background checks had hit a roadblock. Cue the Charlie Brown music. Based on the chorus of smug comments about how opponents of the initiative had warned voters all along that it was flawed, the types who can’t drink enough NRA Kool-Aid had quite a celebration. Here’s hoping they had plenty of fun, because now it’s time to get back to the important job of...
  • How Nevada politicians violate the state constitution’s taxpayer protections

    Las Vegas Review-Journal ^ | January 12, 2017 | Victor Joecks
    Legislators have been skirting the Nevada Constitution to pass tax increases for 20 years, and it’s time to expose their scheme. They’re violating the Gibbons’ Tax Restraint Initiative, a voter-approved constitutional amendment that requires the support of two-thirds of lawmakers (or a majority vote of the people) on any bill that “creates, generates, or increases any public revenue.” Nevada’s local governments already can’t raise taxes unless the Legislature approves first. That should provide state taxpayers with a double firewall against local tax increases. But big government worked out an end-around. After the initiative went into effect in 1996, the Legislative...

    Nearly all of California's reservoirs are far above their historical average volumes for this date of the year. This is somewhat due to the La Nina, and it's a La Nina heading OUT of an El Nino, not into one, so a subsequent drought is unlikely. Reservoir levels are so high, that many are approaching their typical April peaks. And the snowcaps are already approaching their average post-winter depths. Shasta Lake, the largest reservoir, is at 81% capacity and 126% of average. Terminus reservoir is at 321% of normal. Statewide snowcaps are at 160% of normal for the date, and...

    The story going around was that Las Vegas is now completely powered by renewable energy. The story contains a kernel of truth, but then that kernel got distorted into something that went viral, but was clearly untrue. Why does it matter? Because when people start to believe energy myths, they start to have unrealistic expectations. That leads to bad energy policies. After all, if the glittering lights of Las Vegas can run entirely on renewable energy, there is no reason we can’t run the entire country on renewable energy. While it’s fine to have that as a target, if we...

    Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he is confident that he has laid the groundwork for Democrats to nuke the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees if they win back the Senate in November. Envisioning Hillary Clinton in the White House and Democrats controlling the Senate, Reid warned that if a Senate Republican minority block her Supreme Court nominee, he is confident the party won’t hesitate to change the filibuster rules again. Such a move would be an extension of what Reid did in 2013 when he was still majority leader, eliminating filibusters (with a simple majority vote) on...

    A universal gun background check measure, approved by Nevada voters and touted as a victory by gun control advocates, was supposed to take effect after the clock struck midnight Saturday and residents rang in the new year. But the FBI and Nevada’s attorney general, calling the initiative unenforceable, have put it on hold indefinitely. The unexpected development is a welcome surprise for Second Amendment supporters, who have long been critical of such background check efforts funded by Michael’s R. Bloomberg’s gun control advocacy group, Everytown for Gun Safety.

Lombardo's statement to the Las Vegas Sun, "I’m a very avid hunter, I was in the military myself, and there’s no need to have a high-capacity magazine for any practical reason," is prima facie evidence that he is either (1) grossly unqualified for his job; or (2) willing to subordinate public safety to a political agenda that is far better suited to Los Angeles than any place in Nevada.

As reported in the Las Vegas Sun today, Lombardo said “I’m a very avid hunter, I was in the military myself, and there’s no need to have a high-capacity magazine for any practical reason” Lombardo was the only sheriff in the state out of 17 to not oppose Question 1, the Bloomberg background check law.

    CARSON CITY — A new Nevada law requiring background checks for private party gun sales was deemed unenforceable Wednesday, days before it was to take effect because the FBI refuses to conduct them and the state lacks authority to do so. The opinion issued by the office of Republican Attorney General Adam Laxalt left gun enthusiasts elated and proponents of background checks reeling from the blow of another setback — the second since 2013 when a bill requiring universal screenings was passed by the Legislature but vetoed by Gov. Brian Sandoval. Backers are now turning their sights to the 2017...

The designations further cement Obama’s environmental legacy as one of the most consequential — and contentious — in presidential history.

Now, it’s time for Las Vegas-area lawmakers to go a step further to protect Nevadans and push to ban the sale of high-capacity magazines in the state. Eight states and the District of Columbia already have imposed such prohibitions, and with good reason. There’s simply no legitimate civilian use for magazines that hold dozens upon dozens of rounds of ammunition. Don’t believe us? Fine, then listen to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo. “I’m a very...

Bob Irwin, owner of the Gun Store on East Tropicana Avenue, was under the impression that the law still had to go through the Legislature before it would...

Politicians enacted Illinois’ 2011 income-tax hike during a late-night legislative session in January 2011 and raised the state’s personal income-tax rate to 5 percent from 3 percent. This 67 percent income-tax hike lasted for four years, during which time Illinois experienced record wealth flight.

    Republicans had excellent results in Tuesday’s high-stakes Senate races, winning numerous tough battles to preserve their majority in the chamber for the next two years.

Overall, there were eight Republican-held seats and one Democrat-held seat that were competitive going into Tuesday night: Illinois, Wisconsin, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Florida, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Missouri. Of the nine Republicans in these competitive races, six of them stood by Trump...

    Gun control proponent Gabby Giffords was in Nevada over the weekend campaigning for the same background check her attacker, Jared Loughner, passed to acquire his handgun. Loughner shot Gabby Giffords on January 8, 2011. According to Guns.com, Giffords’s stop was part of the gun control bus tour she and her husband, Mark Kelly, have been on for 14 weeks. She was in Nevada to push Question 1, which would expand background checks to more gun sales by requiring private sales and transfers to be checked just like retail sales.
