2014 Nevada Governor Candidate Will Defy Gun Ban

Posted on the 03 January 2013 by Eowyn @DrEowyn

Yesterday, I posted former U.S. Marine Joshua Boston’s open letter to Sen. Diane Feinstein, in which Cpl Boston states he will not register his weapons should her proposed legislation to ban “assault weapons” including handguns is passed

Here’s another voice publicly and boldly stating he will not comply with any gun control ban/confiscation directive. His name is David Lory VanDerBeek, 37, and he’s the Constitution Party’s candidate for Governor of Nevada in 2014. A happily married husband and father of 5 children, VanDerBeek is prepared to go to jail for his belief in the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment. He is asking us to join him.

His video is a bit long, slightly over an hour. I’ve transcribed his main message:

“This video is a message to all Americans, including those of you who are serving in the military and law enforcement.

America is losing all the freedoms that define us as America. The American Dream will come to an end unless we draw the line. Everyone of you will have to make the decision.

Obama is moving to become a dictator. In order to do that, Americans must be disarmed. Our government is preparing legislation to have firearms confiscated, beginning with semi-automatic rifles and military-grade handguns.

I’m asking you as Americans to be public and vocal. I’m asking you to publicly state with me that if anyone in any level of government uses physical force to remove your firearms, that you will defend yourselves.

Why am I standing up to Obama?

Because someone needs to.”

Please go to the video’s YouTube website to leave a comment for Mr. VanDerBeek or send him an email at
