Update: Adam Laxalt refused to enforce Nevada’s ballot referendum on universal background checks as attorney general. Laxalt was defeated by Democrat Steve Sisolak in his bid for the governor’s mansion in November 2018. On February 15, 2019, Governor Sisolak signed universal background checks legislation into law. “In November 2016, the majority of Nevadans made it clear they wanted us to do more to address gun violence, but for the 829 days since then, they’ve been ignored,” said Sisolak at the signing ceremony. “That finally changes today.”
Six months ago, Nevada state attorney general Adam Paul Laxalt stood at a lectern at the NRA’s annual meeting and bragged about refusing to enforce a universal background check law that voters in his state approved on Election Day 2016. He told the NRA faithful he did it because he was “the last line of defense against the Obama Administration.”
How corrupt is Laxalt? The NRA hired his campaign manager, Robert Uithoven, to run their campaign in opposition to Nevada’s universal background check referendum. Now Laxalt is single-handedly holding up the implementation of Nevada’s universal background check law as attorney general by refusing to negotiate with the FBI and other key stakeholders. And the NRA is attacking Laxalt’s critics.
Now, after a single individual armed with an absolute arsenal has inflicted nearly 600 casualties in Las Vegas, Laxalt has the audacity think he is going to be the next governor of Nevada.
Please contact Nevada State Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt through one of the channels below and and give him the following message:
I am absolutely disgusted by your refusal to implement Nevada’s democratically-enacted universal background check law. Now that we have seen the scale of suffering inflicted on Americans in Las Vegas by a single individual with 23 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition, it is time for you to end your corrupt partnership with the NRA and implement this law. If you do not, I will do everything in my power–peacefully and democratically–to make sure you never become governor of Nevada (or any elected office).
