October 2019 President’s Letter
Turn on the news (whether or not it is the MSM), and all you hear about is another one of the Democrats’ attempt to once again reverse the results of the 2016 Election. First, there was the Democrats’ attempt to block the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court by maligning his character and reputation with unconfirmed and unsubstantiated allegations. Second, there was the Russian probe but that was largely put to rest by the Mueller report which affirmed that there was no collusion between the President and the Russian government. Third, the Democrats hypocritically reverse their historical position and refuse to fund border security. This week, the Democrats are screaming impeachment for President Trump’s innocuous communications with Ukraine leaders. The list goes on and on. All of these headlines rile up the Republican base. But the laws and regulations which really impact us are the ones that impact our day to day lives as Nevadans. AB 291, passed by the Democratic majority in our State Legislature, creates “Red Flag/Pre-Crime Protective Orders” -- essentially gun grabbing, which facilitates violations of persons’ constitutional rights not because a person has been convicted of a crime or adjudicated mentally ill, but solely on account of third-party, ex parte allegations. This law, effective January 2020, directly impinges on our due process protections and utilizes low evidentiary standards falling well below the norm for impairment/curtailment of fundamental civil constitutional rights. How did such a law get passed? What can we do to get this law repealed or adjudicated as unconstitutional? Dr. Robin Titus, Republican Minority Assembly Leader, visits us in November to give us her thoughts about AB 291 and other laws that passed this past legislative session. So be sure to join us on November 5 for an enlightening luncheon. Hope to see you there!
President, Nevada Republican Club
