Federal Judge Rules PA Governor’s COVID Shutdown Unconstitutional. Sunshine Patriot Debra Strickland, and her Nye County Commissioners’ “Second Amendment Sanctuary” nothing but lip service…
September 15th, 2020
This just in: A federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled that the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolfe’s COVID shutdown of businesses in that state was UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
Here is the news article: Unconstitutional Closure
Sunshine Patriot Debra Strickland and her Nye County Commissioners SHOULD HAVE and COULD HAVE stood up for the Constitution and honored their Second Amendment Sanctuary proclamation, but demonstrated it was nothing but lip service when YOU NEEDED THEM TO STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR YOU.
Fortunately, I am no Sunshine Patriot. I am willing to fight for you even when it hurts and even when I risk fines, penalties, and arrest. I’m no career politician. My word means something.
As you know from my previous emails, even though Front Sight is considered “essential critical infrastructure” and is exempt from all of the Governor of Nevada’s COVID-19 Emergency Management Restrictions, we voluntarily closed Front Sight in the Spring and Summer to support the popular, but unproven notion that closing down the country would somehow flatten the curve of COVID-19 infections. I did this RELUCTANTLY.
We bit the bullet and did our part to support the Governor’s mandates, even though we did not have to comply under Nevada law, which states:
I made it very clear in my emails that we would re-open on September 1 under our usual policies and procedures.
From March until now, we watched, as you have, double standards be applied to large social gatherings. Leftist protesters and rioters are allowed to gather in huge numbers without any regard for social distancing or use of masks, and in many cases encouraged to do so by the same government officials who imposed the social gathering restrictions and mask mandates on churches, entertainment venues, sporting events, restaurants, hair salons and others. The left promoted this double standard claiming it was all done under the First Amendment allowing peaceful protest, even when the protests were not peaceful.
As September approached, we sent letters to all of our students and members preparing to attend courses this Fall to let them know that due to the tendency for masks to cause your safety glasses to fog, obscuring your vision and creating a dangerous situation while training with firearms, masks were not required on the firing line for students, safety coaches or instructors.
We also stated that due to the need for safety coaches and instructors to be within arms’ reach of students to instruct or immediately intervene if a student’s movements or actions placed themselves or others in danger, we could not adhere to any social distancing protocol.
A few days before 900 students were arriving for our September 4-7 courses, we received correspondence from government agencies involved in Nevada’s COVID Compliance demanding that we alter our procedures and policies or face fines, closure, etc.
Now understand we are located in Nye County, Nevada, a county where the County Commissioners made a very public Second Amendment Sanctuary proclamation in December of 2019. You can read and hear the proclamation at:
The County Board of Commissioners, headed by Debra Strickland, was the first government entity that contacted us, demanding we comply with the Democratic Governor of Nevada’s unconstitutional COVID-19 restrictions. We asked the Nye County Commissioners to honor their Second Amendment Sanctuary proclamation and stand with Front Sight against the Governor’s unconstitutional COVID-19 restrictions as they apply to the use and training with firearms, but remarkably, Debra Strickland, representing the Nye County Board of Commissioners declined to support us.
Instead, Strickland sent us an email listing all the bad things that could happen to us if we did not comply.
A day later, we received a letter from the Nevada OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Organization) which is the agency that carries out the enforcement of the Governor of Nevada’s unconstitutional COVID-19 restrictions, giving us 24 hours to agree to comply with the Governor’s restrictions or face financial penalties, sanctions, closure, etc.
I had a decision to make. I could either cave in to the demands of the Democratic Governor of Nevada and close Front Sight again because we cannot provide a safe environment for firearms training when required to wear masks and social distance OR I could fight.
I thought about what the Founding Fathers would do in this situation. I thought about what President Trump would do in this situation. I thought about the 900 students who were traveling across the country to exercise their God-given, Second Amendment rights with us at Front Sight this weekend.
I thought about the HUGE legal costs in fighting this injustice. I thought about the fines, sanctions, government wrath, potential closure that Front Sight may face and the potential arrest I may face, if I stood up for the Second Amendment and the rights of not just Front Sight and Front Sight’s members, but ALL gun owners and firearms training ranges across the country.
After running all these thoughts through my head, I made the patriotic decision and FILED a lawsuit against the State of Nevada to protect and defend our Second Amendment rights and Front Sight’s ability to train you.
As you read this, over 900 patriots from all across the country have gathered at Front Sight for four days of world class firearms training to exercise their First Amendment and Second Amendment rights in a peaceful protest of Democratic Governor Steve Sisolak’s unconstitutional restrictions against an “essential critical infrastructure” business, namely Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.
Our peaceful protests will continue with each and every course we run until the Governor of Nevada’s unconstitutional COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
