NRA Nevadans for Freedom Hires Campaign Manager to Lead Grassroots Efforts to Defeat Nevada Gun Control Ballot Initiative

by NRA-ILA  |  published on June 2, 2016

NRA Nevadans for Freedom today announced that Robert Uithoven has been hired to manage the grassroots campaign to defeat Question 1, a flawed gun control ballot initiative on the November 2016 ballot. The Uithoven hire signals that NRA Nevadans for Freedom is gearing up for a serious fight to defeat Question 1. The group recently launched a website aimed at educating voters on the truth about the gun control initiative and combating the misinformation campaign being waged by out-of-state gun control groups.

“We are excited to have Robert leading the grassroots campaign to defeat Question 1,” said Catherine Mortensen, NRA spokesperson. “Robert’s proven ability to mobilize supporters on the ground will be the key to defeating the flawed gun control initiative and stopping the Californication of Nevada’s gun rights.”

Uithoven, a Reno native, has been active in Nevada grassroots politics for 25 years where he has led many successful local and statewide campaigns. Uithoven recently managed the campaign to elect Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt.

“I am excited to join the grassroots movement to defeat Question 1,” said Uithoven. “The out-of-state gun control groups funding this flawed initiative will spend whatever it takes to drown out the voices of freedom loving Nevadans. It is my job to ensure that they do not succeed. I am confident that when voters learn the truth about the flawed gun control initiative, Question 1 will be soundly defeated.”

    I read this in vain to learn what the initiative proposed.

    We did not recycle Harry Reid. He was elected simply by being a major stockholder in George Soros voting machine company here in Nevada . He used voter fraud and vote buying of illegal alien voters in Clark County to win his klast election. Most people here, especially in the rural counties, HATE Harry Reid, and would love to see him in jail! How does Dick Durbin keep getting elected in Illinois, or Chuck Schumer get re-elected in New York?

      If you worked to defeat Reid you could defeat the SOB. However, the sad truth is some other lying SOB would tell you all one thing, get elected, and change.

    No question. No doubt. With that much money being poured into a gun control law, it has to be from the elite, Bilderbergs. They simply cannot afford to try their WORLD TAKE OVER if we are still armed and defiant of their goals.
    Who will go for Me? Who will stand in the gap?

    I’ve always wondered how the idiots in Nevada could keep reelecting harry reid. It really reflects badly on them. They look like they like to be punished….

    • Kanawah

      No, it reflects very well on the intelligent people of Nevada. It is the antics of the NRA (Not Real Americans) who reflect badly on Nevada.

      • unbridled

        Yeah, okay. What country did you migrate from? Don’t bother, I really don’t give a rat’s a$$. Look at how much of the state of Nevada is owned illegally by the U.S government. harry, the scum bag, reid is a burned out old faggot that couldn’t care less about his constituents. It’s idiots like you that vote for scum bags like him….
