Nevada State Appellate Court Judge Jerry Tao received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association in his bid for Nevada Supreme Court. Judge Tao earned the endorsement due to his strong support of the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which provides lawful protections for law-abiding citizens to bear arms. The Constitution of the State of Nevada also guarantees the same right for our citizens.
Judge Tao was first appointed to the District Court by Governor Brian Sandoval, and later was appointed by Governor Sandoval to serve on the state’s Appellate Court. He is the most experienced judicial candidate for Supreme Court in Nevada’s state history, have presided over thousands of cases at both the district and appellate court level.
“On behalf of the NRA Members in Nevada, I am pleased to announce your NRA-PVF endorsement for the Nevada Supreme Court in the 2018 General Election,” stated Dan Reid, Western Regional Director for the NRA. “This endorsement is a reflection of your stance on Second Amendment related issues.”
“I am truly honored to receive the endorsement of the National Rifle Association,” stated Judge Tao. “As both a District Court Judge and current Appellate Court Judge, I strive to strictly adhere to the text of our Nevada Constitution and the U.S. Constitution to faithfully carry out my duties as a jurist, not as some form or policymaker or legislator. Should I be fortunate to be elected the next Justice of the Nevada Supreme Court, I will continue to apply the laws of this state, rather than try to create them. That is what I believe Nevadans want and deserve in a fair and impartial court.”
National Rifle Association endorsements are reserved for the most courageous defenders of the Second Amendment, for candidates who have not only an excellent record on all critical NRA issues, but who have also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment.
The National Rifle Association represents thousands of Nevada families and six million members in the United States. It is the country’s oldest civil rights organization. They play an active role in Nevada’s legislative sessions to defeat threats to law abiding gun owners and advance common sense gun policies that enhance public safety.
