Dirty Tricks in Nevada!

This from Tom Gresham a few minutes ago:


The National Association for Gun Rights is going with a Chicago-style dirty tricks campaign.
They are robo calling Nevada gun owners with a call that sounds as though it is strongly pro-gun.  It then gives out the phone number of the governor's office, and says to press 1, then press 3 to be connected. 
Except !!! pressing 1 is a vote in favor of SB211, and not to oppose it. 
Call this number to hear the recording.  775-671-3057 
Let's get the word out. 
Here's a quick summation from the Mr. Conservative blog...essentially Republican Governor Brian Sandoval had asked whether he should veto the onerous universal background check law passed in Nevada (as opposed to, say, Colorado Governor John Hickenstoopid, who only called Michael Bloomberg and asked his opinion on the Colorado laws):
While Washington may be ignoring you, your voice can still be heard, at least at the state level. Although Nevada’s Republican governor Brian Sandoval had already announced that he intended to veto the Nevada legislature’s “universal background check” bill, thousands of citizens called the governor’s office to make sure that he kept his word. 
Once the NRA sent out an alert notifying Nevada citizens that their legislature had passed a universal background check bill that would force people to pay $30 for a background check before claiming their gun, 2,200 people called the governor’s office this past Wednesday to protest. There were so many calls that the Governor’s office set up an emergency automated phone system allow callers to push a button to show whether their call was for or against universal background checks in Nevada. So far, 80% of the calls were in the “nay” column.
Hey, the Chicago Way says when the vote goes against you, lie, cheat and try to steal it!

Michael I have a great show idea for shooting gallery. Go to the USAF bombing ranges in Nevada, Utah, Kansas that would be great for folks to see. That's real shooting gallery. Let me know if you need a contact.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

It is amazing how two plus centuries later that tyranny has most of the same face as the grievances listed by the Colonies. We live in interesting times and if you have never read or have forgotten the impetus of The Declaration Of Independence then read the words and drink in the liquor' of freedom.

Wait a minute. I've been seeing NAGR PRO-gun stuff all over FB. Are you saying they are a false-flag op? MORE INFO, PLEASE!!

I agree, this is pretty confusing! I also have been pretty certain the NAFGR was absolutely Pro-Gun. This needs to be sorted out quickly.

I just called #775-671-3057 and listened to the NAGR's message regarding Nevada's Senate Bill SB221. It seems that the NAGR has corrected the mistake in their message and are no longer telling callers to press #1 then #3. They are only asking that you press #3 which connects you with a receptionist.

When you call the Governor's office in Nevada at #775-684-5670 you will be presented with a message regarding Senate Bill SB221 and (3) options. If you are IN FAVOR or SB221 and wish to vote YES, press 1. If you are NOT IN FAVOR of SB221 and wish to vote NO...for heaven's sake please VOTE 2. If you wish to speak with the receptionist, press 3.

"Senate Bill 221 would ban all private firearm transfers, absent an exception, unless conducted through a gun dealer. Even transactions that do not require a background check – such as those involving a concealed firearm permit holder – would still be required to go through a gun dealer and would be subject to a fee. This onerous requirement creates unnecessary hurdles and fees that will ONLY impact law-abiding gun owners." ~ NRAILA

Let's get the word out and help our fellow Patriots in Nevada to defeat this draconian attack on our 2nd Amendment rights guaranteed by the US Constitution!

Post the following Tweet to spread the word...

ATTN #2A Patriots! Help DEFEAT Senate Bill #SB221 in Nevada by calling (775) 684-5670 and pressing #2 to vote NO! @NRA @2AFDN @GunOwners

The robocalls are live transfers. We are paying for a service that automaticly connects people to the governors office. In order to do that it asks people to press one -- on our call -- for a live transfer.

Once they get there we are asking people to press 3 to speak to a live person. We are NOT asking them to press 1 to vote anti-gun. The voicemail version does NOT mention press one at all. Our live call asks people to press 3 to speak with a live person.

In order for someone to do this in error they would have to write down the number, physically dial it, and ignore the prompts on the governors line AND press the wrong number in error.

Called 11:45 AST / 1:45 MST and spoke to a nice lady at the Governor's office.

They took down the line as the bill was vetoed as promised earlier today.
