    Nevada Governor Vetos "Universal Background Check" Bill

    I just recieved an update that Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has vetoed the Universal Background Checks Bill.

    In the update it stated that "2200 people called hi office between 9 a.m. and 4pm... Four out of five calls were for the Veto." The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

    "As of this past tuesday, over 100,00 calls had already been placed to the Governor."

    The Associated Press reports that, "It is a significant defeat for New York Mayor Michael Bloomgerg's gun control advocacy group, Mayors Against Illegal guns. The Organization spent hundreds of thousands of dollars working to get the bill passed through the Governor."

    First day calls: 28000 against the bill; 7500 for the bill! I guess our voices were heard over the Doomberg tv ads!

    Thanks for confirming this was the one I was thinking of Onacoma. Just wanted to make sure I was thinking correctly. I voted in this one as well, nice to see folks pitched in and reason was heard.

    Does anyone know the votes received to pass the bill?

    Any chance of a veto override?

    It was good to see happen. The numbers will obviously be labled as "overly skewed" in favor of gun rights. Otherwise, were did their 90%of people are in favor of further background checks come from?

    Hopefully the day will come when all, ok most, governors dread going to work when gun control bills are sitting on their desk. I couldn't imagine, even with staff at my disposal, 3000 or so calls in one business day.

    As for the votes I had the numbers from NVFAC but deleted the email, I see if I can get them.

    Veto is NO as the senate/assemble is only a part time group and they out of session unless a special need arises!

    The 90% are the lies told by the progressive spin doctors! The sample 90 liberals and 10 conservatives and then publish the facts!
