New Ad Highlights Laxalt’s Gun Lobby Support and Appearance in Ads to Oppose Background Checks
LAS VEGAS — Today, Everytown for Gun Safety Victory Fund launched a nearly $1 million paid media campaign against Adam Laxalt, with a new ad running in English and Spanish across Nevada. The announcement comes as part of a $3.6 million paid media effort Everytown is leading in Nevada ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
“Adam Laxlat has been called a wind-up toy for the gun lobby, and we’re going to make sure that’s a big reason why Nevadans wind up rejecting him,” said John Feinblatt, head of Everytown Victory Fund. “After surviving the worst mass shooting in modern American history, Nevadans have a bone-deep appreciation for common-sense gun safety laws, and they won’t let dangerous candidates like Adam Laxlat take them backward.”
Last week, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund released new television advertisements highlighting how gubernatorial candidate Joe Lombardo has a record of putting Nevadans at risk. As a part of that announcement, Everytown also released new polling in Nevada showing that the vast majority of voters in the state support common-sense gun safety laws, including 98% support for background checks on all gun sales.

AD TRANSCRIPT: “PITCHMAN”
When the gun lobby needed a pitchman to help them block criminal background checks in Nevada
You know who they called? Adam Laxalt.
He got over a million dollars from the gun lobby
And starred in gun-lobby-funded ads to oppose our background check law.
He tried to make it easy for violent criminals to carry guns.
And was even called a “wind up toy” for the gun lobby.
When gun lobbyists call Adam Laxalt…. He always answers.
While we’re left paying the price.
