  • 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 is very well travelled and has a deep appreciation for others cultures and traditions.  Growing up on the Flathead Reservation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flathead_Indian_Reservation) in Montana gave Cort an immediate appreciation for the Native Americans’ struggles and unique culture.   When he was 17 he spent his junior year of high school in New Zealand staying with a Moari family while attending Mount Maunganui College.  Cort played rugby on the first fifteen squad and spent his free time surfing the beautiful beaches in New Zealand.  Living in a foreign country really opened up Cort’s mind to other cultures and their view of America and American politics.

    After moving back to Montana to finish up his senior year of high school Cort attended BYU Idaho followed by a year backpacking Europe.  Starting in London Cort backpacked all through western and eastern Europe eventually spending several weeks in Istanbul.  Hearing the daily calls to prayer by the devout Muslims is an experience all in its own.  Coming back from Europe Cort worked in Salt Lake City before moving back to Montana to finish his undergrad in accounting.  After completing undergrad Cort was recruited by a Reno certified public accounting firm to perform audits of the various tribes and their casinos throughout the United States.  Staying on the reservations for weeks at a time while auditing Cort had the awesome experience of hearing stories both folklore and recent tribal history straight from the members.

    Cort’s future plans for travel include a trip to Central America to study the ruins and pyramids of the Yucatan Peninsula.
