Yep, it is pretty simple. Property rights originate when an individual finds a previously unclaimed natural resource, mixes his labor (sweat) with it and thus makes the product an extension of himself and therefore his property. After that, he is free to sell, bequeath, give away or even destroy it should he so choose.
It is impossible for government to “ethically” own anything because everything it has, it previously took from someone else at the point of a gun. And speaking of which, they are able to claim title and maintain possession of it simply because their guns are bigger than ours.
You Nevada (and neighboring) cowboys and girls ought to make this little get together. It is in the best interest of America as a whole–return these lands to their rightful owners and all those Easterners wouldn’t have to pay out the nose to support inept and incompetent government land management. — jtl, 419
It is simple, the land belongs to the people.
The natural resources of America are being stolen from the people and claimed by the federal government. Everything we eat, wear, live in, use and so on comes from the earth. If we lose access to the land and natural resources we become beggars to those who control access. Without doubt this is the greatest immediate threat to the individual person and people as a whole. More lives, liberties and property can be taken under this threat than any other we see.
The Nevadan’s Resource Rights Bill (NRR) AB408 has only had a number for five days and it is already the most publicly supported bill in the session, out of nearly a thousand. However, we are starting to see opposition to the bill mount by those that want the federal government to own and control all the land and resources. We need to make sure we are louder than them. If you have not already done it, please go to the link below and show your support for the bill. If you can come to Carson City to support the bill on March 31st, please clink on that link and let us know.
You do NOT need to be a Nevada resident to show your support for this bill. In fact, legislators pay special attention to bills that are receiving national support simply because those bills are likely to end up on national news.
We sincerely hope this bill will be picked up by other states, your state, so that you will be protected as well.

- Show up in Carson City, March 31st at 9 am. Over 15 Nevada State Legislators sponsored the NRR bill and have asked that we fill the house during the committee hearing. We must show up in person and make our presence known. If we fill the house, the committee will pass it and the talk of the 2015 session will be the NRR bill (AB408). With enough of your physical support in Carson City the committee will pass the NRR bill and it will have a substantial chance of becoming Nevada law soon after. We have many rooms booked and buses chartered from Las Vegas and Phoenix.

Nevadans’ Resource Rights Bill (NRR) – AB408
“It is simple, the land belongs to the people”
AN ACT relating to the right of an individual to beneficially use the natural resources on public land, the right of private property owners to beneficially use the natural recourses on deeded property, the right of the public to access public land; prohibiting the Federal Government from owning or regulating certain lands or other natural resource including minerals and the right to use public waters without proper cession from the state as set forth in the U.S. Constitution; requiring the State Land Registrar to adopt regulations that provide for the appropriation and registration of grazing, logging, mineral development or other beneficial use rights on public lands; requiring the State Land Registrar to sell permits for grazing, logging, mineral development or other beneficial uses on public lands for which such rights are not registered and appropriated; requiring the Board of County Commissioners of each county to impose a tax on unit product sold from the beneficial use of public lands or other natural resource including minerals; providing for the administration and defense of the peoples right to the land and resources.
A Handbook for Ranch Managers. In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.
