    Nevada governor Sandoval set up his line to take votes on whether to veto this universal background check, and tax hike on those background checks. Any one can call, help is appreciated! NV residents, you need to call!!

    Press "2" to vote for the Governor to veto the bill.

    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.

    This part worries me. I wouldn't put it past him to robo-call the vote.

    Don't want to encourage anyone from calling, but Sandoval has said publicly and repeatedly (twice this week) that he's going to veto the bill. He's not "trying to decide." And yes, you can vote as many times as you want. It helps give him political cover. Because the NV legislature only convenes every other year, this won't come up again until 2015.

    Local pro-veto groups are robo-calling today. If you go to Nevada Shooters, you can contribute to the robo-call effort in favor of the veto (which the Gov. has already promised publicly and repeatedly).

    Just in case they only count 1 vote per phone number, I called from my work phone, cell phone, and will call again from my wife's cell phone. :cool:

    They don't care. They just set up the call line last night, because they got more than 2000 calls to his office yesterday (4-1 in favor of the veto), and the pressure on staff was too much. This veto is a done deal. The calls help provide political cover to the Gov. and gives him a warning about future complicity with the Bloomberg crowd. But make no mistake: This bill is as dead as a club footed girl entering Auschwitz.
