SIMPSON LAWYER & GUN GRABBER OZZIE FUMO RUNS FOR NV SUPREME COURT Jan 7, 20120 Rob Lauer Political Reporter Democrat Assemblyman Ozzie Fumo may be best known for representing O.J. Simpson here in Las Vegas as his criminal defense attorney, but he should be known as the one of the architects of the 2019 gun grab laws and the decriminalization movement. The decriminalization movement, using the code name of “Criminal Justice Reform”, pasted laws in 2019, lowering serious crimes from felonies down to misdemeanors such as home burglaries and car break-ins, and ending bail for many serious crimes. Fumo refers to those crimes as “Just low level property crimes”. Fumo announced he is running for the Nevada Supreme Court seeking to replace outgoing NV Chief Justice Mark Gibbons. Clark County District Court Judge Douglas Herndon has also announced he’s running for the open Supreme Court seat. Fumo also pushed for the elimination of bail allowing home burglary suspects to be released back onto the streets with zero posted bail. See AB149. Ozzie Fumo authored Assembly Bill 149 on February 15, 2019 seeking to abolish the Death Penalty in Nevada. The bill died in committee. Ozzie Fumo is listed as one of the Co-Sponsors of the Gun background check law, AD 143, in addition, Mr. Fumo voted for the Red Flag Law, AB291. In fact in 2018, Michael Bloomberg’s Gun Grabber group donated $10,000 directly to Assemblyman Fumo (see attached screen shot of NV SOS report) Nevada Firearms Coalition President Don Turner said “Any public official who’s failed to support the Constitution doesn’t belong on the highest court in Nevada.” One often hears judges’ site rules that state that they cannot comment on public policy issues and or laws while running for office, otherwise they need to recuse themselves when those laws and issues come before them in court. Well Mr. Fumo has spoken out and legislated on practically every public policy issue of the day. Attorney and former President of the Nevada Bar, Alan Lefebvre said “It would be unethical for any judge to rule on any law they authored as a legislator”.
