In this country, we’re mainly used to hearing about gun rights taken away. Though that’s not how it’s going in many red states across the nation.
From the expansion of constitutional carry now in 22 states, to the liberation of basic gun rights and upholding of 2A fundamentals, America is undergoing a transformation.
That transformation is towards expanded gun rights, not shrinking gun rights. Americans of all political beliefs want the right to defend themselves and carry weapons if they choose.
However, there is still a large contingent in our “woke” establishment and judiciary who’s furious about the people having any power.
This issue recently came to a head in small-town Nevada, when a judge refused to enforce the law.
Meet Bruce Jabbour
Bruce Jabbour was elected to be county commissioner of Nye County in Nevada in 2021.
This small population county lies north of Las Vegas and includes tiny towns like Beatty, Duckwater, Round Mountain, and Gabbs. It’s not exactly the center of political activity.
However, as commissioner, Jabbour wanted to do a good job and he also wanted to exercise his basic rights. After being picked by Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak to serve as Nye’s commissioner, Jabbour discovered he was expected to not carry his handgun on him while working at his office.
The reason was simple: County Judge Kim Wanker had put the whole building as a gun-free zone. This included her legal offices, which were the same complex as the commissioner’s office and everywhere else there.
Jabbour was therefore expected to disarm every day to go to work. He refused.

Jabbour didn’t want to make this into a big issue. He wanted to do his job and have his rights as an American. He spoke to Wanker and asked her to lift the gun-free zone designation on the building.
She refused, along with other judges. Jabbour then decided to discuss the issue at his commissioner’s gathering and passed a motion to allow guns in the non-court areas of the building.
He also had gun-free signage removed from the court’s front doors and put specifically by the court.
We’ve seen time and time again how advertising yourself as a gun-free zone leads to horrific massacres. It also leads to people being told they can’t exercise their rights, which is why Jabbour didn’t want it associated with his office.
The judges ignored the commissioner’s decisions and left the signs up and the rules in place. So, Jabbour evicted the judicial workers from the building.
"Commissioner Bruce Jabbour spearheaded the move, saying legal gun owners should be able to carry weapons almost everywhere in county buildings so they can defend themselves if needed." https://t.co/DZ7uh2dspj

The Bottom Line
These lawyers didn’t like allowing Nevadans their rights. Now, they have to find a new place to work. It’s good to know there is still plenty of justice and gun rights expansion going on in America today.
Don’t lose hope.
