  • Cort Arlint Second Amendment and Nevada Gun Laws

    The Second Amendment’s purpose was to establish American’s rights to self defense, resistance to oppression and defense of the state.  I firmly believe in individual’s rights and think they should be expanded not constrained.  The right to use firearms for lawful purposes should be protected.  Growing up on a 30 acre ranch in Montana my family used guns for hunting target shooting and protection while camping and hiking in the Rocky Mountains.  Firearms have been a part of my life and as a representative of the State of Nevada I will continue to advocate for the rights of law abiding gun owning Nevadans.   I have summarized some of the current court rulings and legislative actions affecting Nevadans.

    Nevada Law

    Nevada Constitution states, “Every citizen has the right to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes.  Nevada has restricted carrying concealed weapons by NRS 202.350 it is not a constitutional carry state.  While “open carry” is permissible in Nevada, a permit is required for a concealed weapon.  A shall-issue state, Nevada has a list of 10 separate grounds for denying a license.

    Recent legislation in Nevada included a gun bill SB76 which tried to eliminate the need for a CCW permit.  The bill didn’t pass, also another bill SB 221 was vetoed by the governor which would have required private transfers of firearms to go through a federal firearms licensee  and required a background check.

    Federal Law

    In 2008, the Supreme Court held in Colombia v. Heller the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.  Later in McDonal v. City of Chicago the Supreme Court furthered their ruling holding that self-defense is a basic individual right, and therefore, the Second Amendment applies to states through the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

  • Cort Arlint, Esq., CPA, MBA… Perhaps the Most Interesting Accountant in the World

    Cort Arlint Nevada State Controller 2014 ElectionsNot satisfied after starting a CPA firm at age 25 and a law firm at 28, he is now running for Nevada Controller.  Passing all four CPA exams and the Bar exam on his first try, Cort wasted no time working for a CPA firm while attending night school earning a Master of Business Administration from the University of Nevada Reno and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

    While an active snowboarder and kayaker Cort also was a firefighter, whitewater raft guide, author, eagle-scout, private pilot and world traveler.  In 2002, Cort backpacked Europe for several months starting in London, passing through 15 different countries before flying back to the United States from Istanbul, Turkey. Also while in high school Cort spent a year in New Zealand attending Mount Maunganui College and starting on their 1st XV rugby team.

    Cort’s focus for his candidacy is about government transparency, accountability and accuracy.  He would like the controller to publish more reports especially concerning the audits the controller’s office performs and liabilities the State of Nevada is accruing.  The government should be working for the citizens not using their tax revenues to fund their own pet projects and pensions.

    “I don’t always follow the rules but when I do, I prefer GAAP. Stay nerdy my friends”
