James Settelmeyer is the Nevada State Senator for District 17. I contacted him to ask him if he would speak to the group about the lack of hue and cry from our representatives regarding the over reach of our Governor. He gave us insight as to his perspective which is that we do have representatives who are standing up to Sisolak and it is not being covered by the news outlets, therefore we are not aware of it. He drafted and sent a letter to the Governor asking several point blank questions regarding the handling of this crisis. The response he received from the Governor’s office was that his letter constituted a personal attack. Senator Settelmeyer also attends a weekly “meeting” with the Governor’s office where the representatives are not allowed to ask questions. In my opinion, this is not a meeting, it is a lecture.
His recommendation to us was that we each contact the ACLU and ask why they are not defending our individual liberties regarding the right to peaceably assemble, the right to freely travel and the right to worship as we see fit. Do they not represent ALL of the people?
“Emergency Declarations and Constitutional Rights”
April 9th @ 6pm
Guest Speaker Marc Randazza, noted First Amendment lawyer. Marc gave a great talk about the unconstitutional decrees we are seeing come out during this coronavirus debacle. He gave examples of various attacks on First Amendment Rights that he has defended and also included examples of violations of our First Amendment throughout the country at this time. There were great questions from participants and Marc expounded on the questions as he answered them. He cautioned us to be constantly vigilant of these attacks on our liberties and strongly encouraged us to seek redress from our elected representatives.
Guest Speaker Mo Wiltshire, former prosecutor and prominent trial lawyer. Mo presented information regarding the attacks on our Second Amendment that we are seeing across the country. While Mo lives in Athens, GA, he gave us examples of attacks from across the country and specifically about a case they had to bring against their elected representatives in Georgia. He strongly encouraged us to defend our Second Amendment Rights by filing lawsuits if necessary against our elected representatives that violate the Constitution.
