NV: Senator Wants To Ban Guns Through Secret Lists While Denying Due Process

posted on December 18, 2015

Nevada Democrat Sen. Ruben Kihuen is calling on fellow state legislators to return to Carson City for a special legislative session to consider a bill he has proposed to “prohibit those on the federal No Fly List from purchasing firearms in Nevada.” 

While the NRA obviously does not want terrorists or other dangerous people to have access to firearms, this legislation would deny Americans two constitutional rights: the right to keep and bear arms, and the right to due process. The federal No Fly List is not public record. Who is on the list, who put them onto the list and why they’re on the list, is all secret. There’s no process to be removed from the list. That is not how the rule of law works in America.

Use Your Power!

Nevadans, contact your representatives today and urge them NOT to return for a special legislative session just so Sen. Ruben Kihuen can drum up free media for his congressional campaign. To locate your representative, click here.
