CARSON CITY (AP) — A group of conservatives say they are preparing to recall Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, contending that the new Democratic governor and Democratically-controlled legislature are passing or debating liberal legislation that they say will infringe on their freedoms, including gun rights.

The group, called Fight for Nevada, held a rally at a park in Carson City on Sunday as lawmakers were winding down their legislative session about a mile away.

Fight for Nevada President Angela Blass says that while the group has filed an official recall committee with the state, they won't start gathering signatures until this fall.

Blass says the group plans to spend the summer holding rallies to build support for their cause and then will file a recall notice around November to begin collecting signatures.

A message seeking comment from Gov. Steve Sisolak's office was not immediately returned.
