Clint Koble (NV-02), News Clipping

Koble has recently taken on Amodei on the issue of gun safety, an especially sensitive topic in a district where every county except for Washoe County voted for President Donald Trump in 2016. Koble held a gun safety town hall Thursday at Swill Coffee and Wine in Reno, just four days after the mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio and five days after El Paso, Texas’s mass shooting.

“Our Congressman Mark Amodei voted against the bipartisan universal background check act of 2019. He not only voted against us, but he voted against some members of his own party,” said Koble. “If he’s not going to have town halls on this tough subject, I’ll have a darn bunch more of them.”

At the town hall, attended by a group of about 20-30 mostly older attendees, Koble shared a list of 21 ideas to increase gun safety, including an assault weapon buy-back program, combating extremism by identifying groups, and funding studies by the CDC to identify what causes mass shootings.
