    I saw the following on a facebook post earlier. It's written much better than I could do, so I'm just going to quote it. The bill has already passed both the Senate and the Assembly and is awaiting the Governor's signature or veto.

    "Gun Owners of America
    Encourage the Nevada Governor to Veto Gun Control!
    Gov. Sandoval is sticking his finger in the wind,
    trying to decide whether to issue veto

    You don’t even have to live in Nevada.

    But you should know that Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval (R) is trying to decide whether he should sign or veto SB 221, a bill so extreme that the left-of-center United States Senate even voted down a version of it.

    If he signs this Universal Background Check bill, it will have ramifications for you -- even if you don’t live in the Silver State.

    So please call 775-684-5670 and press “2” -- to vote AGAINST the universal background check bill (SB 221). You don’t have to live in the state. You don’t even have to give your name or address -- the entire process is automated and it will take you less than 13 seconds.

    There are many reasons why ALL gun owners from around the country should call.

    For starters, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is generating his own calls into the Governor’s hotline, encouraging the Sandoval to sign the background (registration) bill.

    Mayor “Big Gulp” has posted a video where he encourages people from around the country to cast their votes.

    But YOUR VOTE could make the difference!

    You may not live in Nevada. And so you may be thinking, “Why should I take action on an out-of-state bill?”

    The reason is that what happens in Nevada won't stay in Nevada!

    U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) has been on the fence in regard to universal background checks. He voted right on a key vote back in April, but we had to put a LOT of pressure on him in the state to get him to do so.

    Every vote count that the Left made public had Sen. Heller as a possible pick up for their side. And that’s why we need to keep Nevada from adopting a universal background check bill. If the Republican Governor signs this bill, it becomes much more likely that this U.S. Senator from Nevada will vote to strap the rest of the country with gun control.

    So please call the Governor’s hotline number -- no matter where you live!

    ACTION. Call 775-684-5670 and press “2” -- to vote AGAINST the universal background check bill (SB 221). Again, you don’t have to live in the state. As noted above, you don’t even have to give your name or address -- the entire process is automated and it will take you less than 13 seconds. So no matter where you live, please make this call for the sake of freedom!

    Also, please distribute this alert to EVERY PRO-GUN PERSON you know -- your family and friends, even your enemies -- as long as they are pro-gun! We need to flood this hotline with people pressing “2.”

    BILL HIGHLIGHTS. There are a lot of problems with SB 221, but these are the key ones for Nevada residents:

    * SB 221 would expand background checks -- and hence the framework for gun registration -- to most private gun sales. Even if you live hundreds of miles from a gun shop, if you want to transfer your gun to your next-door neighbor, you and he have to travel together to the gun shop (even if the buyer holds a concealed carry permit!).

    * Under most circumstances, when you and your neighbor travel to the gun shop, he’s going to have to get a check with the FBI. Given that 8% of these checks result in “false denials” -- normally because his name is like someone else’s -- you’ll have to stick around the gun shop for three days. Most likely, your neighbor will effectively be denied the right to own a firearm.

    * Even if you’re a purchaser with a CCW, the dealer has to make a 4473 on you -- and, increasingly, ATF is going around to gun shops and copying (a.k.a., registering) that information.

    * If you go through the entire Brady Check procedure and it turns out the purchaser of your firearm -- unbeknownst to you (or the Brady System) -- is a marijuana user, you go to prison.

    Bottom line: This is a horrible bill!
    Please call 775-684-5670 and press “2.”

    The # that Bloomberg setup to look like it's a Nevada # is 888-966-9224, call that and hit OPTION #2 when it connects you.

    Believe me I've written the Governor several times as well as called him quite a few times, and also called quite a few times on that number you all posted.

    One of my letters referred to his signing the bill as political suicide, and therefore strongly urged him not to sign the bill.

    So far the only thing I got back was letters stating he thanked me for my concern, but would not give me a yes or no on the SB221. Therefore the phone calls.

    I hope you guys get real active in fighting this. Spread the word at local gunshops, Cabelas, Craigslist, VFW, American Legion, car races and anywhere else you can. Pass out the # on cards and urge people to call on their cell phones.

    Voted against.......question for all you old timers out there, how often has this happened in U.S. history? I mean how many times have they tried to push BS gun control through?

    Just google "gun control legislation" and you'll see it started before well before the 1964 Gun Control Act and has occurred repeatedly since then. This is not new.

    The radio said it was approximately 25,000 voting in support of SB221, and 125,000 against. Pretty good showing, I'd be interested to know how many of those calls came from out of state.

    I used Bloomberg's line he had setup to call in and ask the Governor to veto the Bill.

    Glad you Nevadans get to keep your Rights for now.
