Nevada – -(AmmoLand.com)- Patriots,

We received so much positive support from our email on Bernie Sanders, I wanted to continue to share the positions of the other frontrunners in the race for the Democrat’s nomination for president. Pete Buttigieg came in a very close second in New Hampshire and edged out Bernie Sanders in Iowa.

While NVFAC PAC is a state PAC and we don’t get involved in the federal election, as the Nevada Democratic Caucus approaches, we want to share with you where each of the front runners stands on firearms and your 2nd Amendment rights. These will be the people setting the tone for the anti-firearms policies we will be opposing in this election and the next legislative session.

Pete Buttigieg Vows to: (directly from his website)

  • Make background checks universal and close the loopholes that allow dangerous individuals to acquire and keep guns. After each new mass shooting, it has become routine to learn that the perpetrator acquired their guns legally. Current federal law only requires licensed gun dealers to conduct background checks on gun sales, allowing too many people who are banned from having guns to acquire them anyway. This loophole and others that allow dangerous individuals to obtain guns have to be closed.
    • Institute universal background checks. The Senate should immediately pass universal background check legislation — including from all gun shows and unlicensed online sales — which was passed by the House of Representatives over 150 days ago.
    • Close the “boyfriend loophole.” We need to close loopholes that will reduce the number of intimate partner homicides, including extending laws to apply to dating partners in the same way that they treat partners who have lived together as spouses.
    • Close the “Charleston loophole.” Under federal law, if a federally-licensed gun dealer who has initiated a background check has not been notified within three business days that the sale would violate federal or state laws, the sale can go forward by default. We must close this deadly loophole and allow the FBI additional time to investigate potentially dangerous people. Until a background check is completed, gun sales must be prohibited from taking place.
  • Close the hate loophole. Hate and bigotry have motivated some of the deadliest mass shootings in our nation’s history. In too many cases, a firearm turns bigoted threats into deadly assaults. In recent years, the number of active hate groups in the U.S. has reached an all-time high. We must pass the Disarm Hate Act, which would prohibit people convicted of hate crimes from acquiring or possessing firearms.
  • Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. In the two decades since Columbine, America has barely changed its national gun laws, besides letting an assault weapons ban expire. As a veteran, I know that military-grade weapons have no place in our neighborhoods. The same is true for high-capacity magazines, some of which can hold up to 100 rounds of ammunition and significantly increase a shooter’s ability to injure and kill large numbers of people quickly without needing to reload. We’ve already decided that certain weaponry — like tanks and rockets — are unacceptable in civilian hands. Congress should similarly reinstitute a federal assault weapons ban and ban magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
  • Support red flag laws that disarm domestic abusers. Red flag laws allow a judge to seize legally-owned guns if someone is determined to be an immediate threat to themselves or others. In many cases, people close to a mass shooter had observed clear warning signs of violence — such as stalking or abusing women — but were unable to act to keep the shooter from accessing weapons. Congress should pass a federal Extreme Risk Protection Order Act to allow for an intervention before there is carnage.
  • Establish a nationwide gun licensing system. Comprehensive background checks can be made more effective by also requiring the gun buyer to be licensed — similar to what we require of car owners nationwide. This increases accountability for both sellers and buyers, and makes it less likely that a prohibited individual will be able to obtain a gun.
  • Congress should also supplement universal background check legislation with federal licensing laws.
  • Resume federal funding for gun violence research. Gun violence is a public health crisis, but for the past two decades Congress has effectively cut funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) for studying gun violence. The House of Representatives allocated $50 million of funding for gun violence research at CDC and NIH, and the Senate should immediately pass it. When someone wants to make it illegal to research something, you’ve got to wonder what they’re worried we might find.

Wait there is even more! Read the complete version of Pete Buttigieg's Gun Control Plans in his White Paper originally found here.

Pete Buttigieg's Gun Control Plans White Paper


Because of the work of NVFAC PAC, we were able to pass one gun law for all of Nevada and eliminate the Clark County “blue card” handgun registry. Pete Buttigieg (and many Nevada democrats) are vowing to bring them back, both in Nevada and nationwide. Help us stand against these attacks on your rights.

Every one of these anti-gun buffoons recycle the same gun control BS. A BGC for ammo would require law abiding citizens to ask permission to purchase ammo with backdoor registration the end game. Their BGC on ammo would require law abiding gun owner to fill out a form that can trace back to them that they are in possession of firearms and where they’re located.

All anyone needs to know about Petey.
Leviticus 18:20
“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” Chapter 18 verse 22. “If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”
He obviously sees the Bible and the US Constitution and Bill of Rights in the same way……ignores the parts he doesn’t like.

Who the hell is funding this bone smuggler’s campaign anyway? How does a mayor from Indiana have the cash to go up against all those millionaires? Certainly, the source of all the chit that comes out of little Peter buttphukk’s mouth is either his husband’s asshole or his own asshole when they go ass to mouth.

Pete, from one Veteran to another: I thank you for your service to this country of ours, I sincerely do. What made you so anti-constitutional I will never know, especially when you swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States because now you are one of “them.” If you find fault with the Constitution, it can only be because you are now seeing it through radicalized eyes. You have transitioned in more ways than one. And the last thing America needs right now is someone like you taking up the reigns, because be it known that you intend to… Read more »

@ST… There was an article on him about a week ago . He went something called “direct appointment” (I think they called it) into reserves No basic No time in the field etc. Never fired any kind of firearm , just put in time behind some desk .

I saw that, as did Biden’s oldest son, Joseph Robinette “Beau” Biden III (February 3, 1969 – May 30, 2015) who was also an attorney, officer in the Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps, and politician from Wilmington, Delaware. He too, went by way of “direct appointment.”

@OV – Also heard about that. “Direct Appointment” (or whatever the correct name is) is reasonable & appropriate for when it is usually used. Usually it is used for people with special skills, who must be brought into chain of command, in none combat roles – most often medical doctors. As a rule, most MDs are not expected to carry weapons… Lawyers too – they are more dangerous with a briefcase than pretty much anyone with a firearm. Not sure how Mr Pete’s role qualified. He came into theater to drive dignitaries around in an SUV. Presumably while being protected… Read more »

@ JFC – Scariest part is that MP sounded more reasonable than any of the other candidates in the last debate. Hearing Amy practically break into tears after mild rebuke from MP was priceless.

Why is there not universal background checks on politicians ? And the results made public ? Not to sound homophobic, but personally, there have been many lechers, perverts,adulterers in our White House. But never have we had two men sharing a bed in there. To me, that is enough not to vote for Petey-poo.A person so mixed up emotionally,should not be in the Oval Office.

It’s not homophobic or bigoted to tell the truth. Those of us who understand reality know homosexuality is wrong.

Yes gunner, we have had two men sharing a bed in the White House. Obummer and his husband Mike. He was also a communist, a foreigner and a muslime (intentionally misspelled and not capitalized). Tolerance can only go so far. When tolerance and acceptance threaten our security, Constitution and indeed, our culture and Christian values, it must not be tolerated or accepted.

“Comprehensive background checks can be made more effective by also requiring the gun buyer to be licensed — similar to what we require of car owners nationwide.” What you see here is what you get when someone doesn’t understand the law. The last time I checked “owners of cars” are not required to be “licensed.” The law only requires operators of motor vehicles to be “licensed” and even then only when operating the vehicle on public roads or property as opposed to private property or roads. I know, tis a small thing, but then I’ve been known to dwell on… Read more »

The only priviledge the dims think they understand is “white” priviledge. But even that is a stretch, given they have blasted many people of color over the years for having white privilege too. Go figure. And they wonder why we call them libtards?

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” That which has been an abomination for the past 5,000 years still is. Anyone who would tee you GOD made him that way is evil and is lying. EVERY demoncrapic candidate is vowing to disavow their oath of office and destroy the constitution. Our constitution is based on righteous, moral, law and commandments of Judeo/Christianity. Anyone who would trash it is evil and should be dealt with and stopped.

Arm up, carry on.

I pretty much said the same thing above Bill. Tolerance and acceptance can only go so far. When tolerance and acceptance threaten our security, Constitution, culture and Christian values it must not be tolerated or accepted. The communist’s version of tolerance and acceptance is not only destroying the United States, it’s destroying the entire world. Most of the world is a stinking, filthy cesspool of decaying humanity controlled by 1% of even worse evil, corrupt, morally devoid, incredibly greedy power mongers. God must take over soon or we will all surely be destroyed by our own corruption.
