Take Action Nevada
The October 1st, 2017 horrific shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas was the latest in a seemingly never-ending series of tragedies (Sadly the list continues to grow and includes our friends in Sutherland Springs, Texas).
We, Nevadans of every political background, are calling upon our elected officials to pass and implement common sense gun violence prevention methods. We demand immediate action to prevent more needless deaths and we demand that our leaders put public safety first.
Policies we would like to see implemented include:
- The immediate implementation of Question 1, The Background Check Initiative which passed state-wide in 2016, including with a large majority of support in Clark County. While this initiative would not have stopped the events of 1 October, it will prevent countless other incidents of gun violence.
- An immediate ban on the sale, distribution and ownership of any device that functionally increases the rate of fire of a lawful semi-automatic weapon into an unlawful fully-automatic weapon.
- The re-implementation of limits on high-capacity firearm magazines which expired at the federal level in September 2004 and placed restrictions on magazine ammunition clips with more than 10 rounds.
- The strengthening of state and federal laws regarding mental illness and it's reporting process to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
there is more that can and must be done, but we’re starting here. Evil will always exist in the world; but
inaction is not the answer.
By adding your name you agree that you support common sense solutions and that you will support leaders who take action now to protect and defend the innocent lives of our residents and visitors.
We plan on delivering these signatures to Governor Sandoval and other elected officials at the end of the year.
