‘Tis the season — even for firearms.
For Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore’s (R) 2015 family Christmas card, which she posted on Facebook on Monday, her family was each outfitted with a gun. If it wasn’t immediately obvious, Fiore is a staunch defender of Second Amendment rights.
“It’s up to Americans to protect America. We’re just your ordinary American family. -With love & liberty, Michele,” her message read. Here’s the card:
In the top left corner the card lists the guns photographed: a Beretta 92FS, Glock 30 .45ACP, Serbu Super-Shorty 12-gauge shotgun, Extar EXP-556, Walther P22 (LR), Glock 19 9mm and Glock 30 .45ACP.
Fiore’s daughters, Sheena and Savanah as well as her grandchildren Jake, Jayden, Mara and Morrigan, and her mother Lill are pictured. Jake, who a bio on Fiore’s website says is at least 5 years old, is pictured holding the Walther P22.
Fiore made headlines in 2014 when she defended Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy. She told MSNBC, “Don’t come here with guns and expect the American people not to fire back.”
Fiore lost her position as majority leader and taxation committee chair in December 2014, according to the Associated Press, after reports that the IRS had filed hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax liens against her in the last decade.
