TEXAS TALL TALES
TEXAS SAM'S TALL TALE:
Adam Laxalt is in favor of gun control.
THE TRUTH: No one in Nevada has been bolder in defense of the Second Amendment than Adam Laxalt.
Don’t take our word for it. Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation flatly said, re: the 2A: Sam Brown Is Lying About Adam Laxalt
Here is another third-party journalist reporting the same thing: Adam Laxalt vocally opposed AB 291, which included red flag laws against gun owners.
Adam was so opposed that he even raised money and ran Facebook ads to oppose AB 291’s passage. The ads were clear: “Assembly Bill 291 would remove Nevada’s state-level protections of your 2nd Amendment rights. The Assembly has already passed this reckless bill, and the fight has now moved to the Senate. We believe our constitutional rights are non-negotiable -- stand with us and oppose Assembly Bill 291!”
Senator Ira Hansen confirmed that Adam opposed AB 291 while speaking to the Senate on May 31, 2019: “In the hearings, Attorney General Adam Laxalt's name came up as being in favor of Red Flag laws. I contacted him and asked him about this. He made it clear he would be 100 percent against this law since the violation of an individual’s due process rights.”
The NRA endorsed Adam for Governor in 2018 and Gun Owners of America—the no-compromise gun group—has endorsed Adam for Senate.
As Attorney General, Adam sued the City of San Francisco for its unconstitutional handgun laws.
As Attorney General, Adam sued in Peruta vs. San Diego as part of a national effort to protect Second Amendment rights for handgun owners.
THE BOTTOM LINE?
While Adam Laxalt was fighting for the Nevadans’
Second Amendment Sam Brown was…living in Texas.
