Nevada: Judge Orders Anti-Gun Ballot Initiative Withdrawn and Revised

Last Friday, a Carson City District Judge ordered an anti-gun petition, previously reported here, to be withdrawn and revised.  This petition, authored by “Nevadans for Background Checks,” failed to include a material description of the criminal penalties that would result should this initiative become law.  Earlier this month, a lawsuit was filed challenging this specific wording, encouraging legal action to ensure the true intent of this initiative is communicated to the public.

Missouri: Gun Owners Prevail in Missouri Supreme Court – Amendment Stays on Primary Election Ballot on August 5

As previously reported last month, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun followers made another attempt at hindering your right to keep and bear arms in Missouri.  In mid-June, a lawsuit was filed against Senate Joint Resolution 36 (Constitutional Amendment 5 on the August 5 primary election ballot) – with the plaintiff being St. Louis Police Chief Samuel Dotson III and Rebecca Morgan, a member of the Missouri chapter of a Bloomberg-funded anti-gun group.  This lawsuit sought to challenge the ballot language and had the express intention of outright killing this ballot measure.
