    1. Why are you running for Nevada State Controller?

    I spent several years auditing the State of Nevada. During this time I came across several areas the State of Nevada’s financials could be improved. Kim Wallin has implemented several nonpartisan changes, including preparing more reports and posting the reports online for public viewing. She is termed out and I am the best candidate to replace her. I am a tax attorney, certified public accountant and a university accounting professor. I own a business in Nevada and care deeply about making sure Nevada has a small, smart, flexible government able to handle the needs of Nevadans.

    2. Give a brief summation of your professional and political background.

    I started my professional career working for a certified public accounting firm in Reno auditing tribal casinos around the United States. Next, I worked for another Reno CPA firm auditing the State of Nevada, Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and the Washoe County School District.

    I moved from Reno to Las Vegas for law school, receiving a Juris Doctorate from UNLV’s Boyd School of Law. During this time I established the CPA firm Arlint CPA. Despite the odds and recession, the company has grown remarkably serving hundreds of clients in Nevada and all over the world. Through hard work, I have established a reputation for accounting excellence and was recently ranked one of the top 10 CPAs in Nevada.

    After successfully starting the CPA firm I joined Derek Armstrong Esq. to form the law firm Arlint & Armstrong. The law firm practices in the areas of tax, estate planning and business law. As a tax attorney I represent taxpayers’ rights against the Internal Revenue Service in the US Tax Court.

    3. Define your political philosophy.

    I am a young republican. I believe in the government being fiscally responsible and limited as much as possible. I believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex, or national origin………

  • Cort Arlint Second Amendment and Nevada Gun Laws

    Cort Arlint Pictured Above at the Clark County Nevada Shooting Range

    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.
