    Boobus to vote yes on question 1?

    This is very disturbing. Boobus can't help himself with stuff like this. Gunvermin skooling, low information voting and all. A stark reminder of how tenuous gun rights are, even in states with decent laws. All states without laws banning registration are subject to similar referenda. The controllers and despots know if they go to boobus with something mellifluous the cities will vote yes to the man.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    I wonder if the oligarchy knew this when they "granted" voting to Boobus. "Yeah, sure. Let 'em vote. They'll feel like they can accomplish something. That will shut them up. They're so dumb; it will be too easy to manipulate them. Heck, we can feed them their opinion, and they will totally believe it is their own opinion. How else can we capitalize on their unwillingness to inform themselves?"
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Does the Washoe County sheriff's office enforce any prior restraint gun laws? If so then it is not as 2A centric as the good sheriff claims it is. Or, is he speaking only for himself and not his employees. No argument from me, vote NO on Question 1.

    I do not live in Washoe County (but am relatively nearby) but I am not aware of any instances of the Washoe County Sheriff's Office attempting to enforce any prior restraint gun laws.

    I think it logical that he is speaking (in that article) as sheriff or he would/should have specifically stated otherwise. After all, he IS the sheriff and clearly indicated such in the article. And his employees/deputies must answer to him.

    Now we NEED more sheriffs to step and speak out in opposition to Q1.

    By the way, I had to look up "boobus" and "mellifluous". Cool!
