Then in 2016, @MomsDemand helped pass a ballot initiative for background checks, but then Gov. Sandoval refused to implement the law. Now here we are again - after years of fighting and winning a gun sense majority - truly, fiballt passing background check legislation.
Other speakers included Nevada Attorney General @AaronDFordNV, who has been all-in on gun safety, and Assemblywoman @sandra4nv, who survived the nation’s deadliest mass shooting in modern history and has been a true gun sense champion.

Flipped almost all our constitutional offices from R to D - including our first ever African-American statewide victor. That's Lieutenant Governor, @KateMarshallNV, Attorney General, @AaronDFordNV, Treasurer, @ZConine, and Controller @cebyrnecpa. Not even close to being done. /2
