In response to anti gun protests by Women’s March organizers, the Flagstaff Unified School District sent a letter to parents this week saying students have a “Constitutional Right” to protest during class. The district also says they oppose arming teachers and administrators and support “reasonable restrictions on access to weapons”. The full letter can be found here: FUSD School Safety Statement


Above is the letter from FUSD to parents and teachers.

Below is the March 14th Woman’s March event details from their official facebook page. This walkout is supposed to happen at 10am during class (third period). FUSD says students have a “Constitutional right” to protest during school hours.

I was happy to spend time on the Jeff Oravits Show last week discussing guns and gun control issues. You can listen to the entire show here: https://jefforavits.wordpress.com/2018/02/24/jeff-and-elisha-talk-about-push-for-gun-control-student-walkouts-and-more/


Elisha Dorfsmith visits with Jeff and spends the hour talking the 2nd Amendment and gun issues including the push by the left for gun control, mental health, fake news, 16 year old voters, 21 year old gun ownership, misleading headlines, the lunacy of gun free zones, plus lots of caller comments and a state senator pushing students to walk out of school indefinitely.

This one covers a lot!  Take a listen.

Flagstaff Council Sending Mixed Messages On Nuclear Power

October 11, 2017 1 comment

By Elisha Dorfsmith

At last night’s Flagstaff City Council work session we learned that council will be voting on an upcoming resolution against uranium mining and transport. They will also be making it a City legislative priority to lobby against uranium mining and transport.


Citizen’s Climate Lobby board member James Hansen was recently featured in Scientific American in an article titled Nuclear Power Must Make A Comeback For Climate’s Sake.

Council recently passed the Citizen’s Climate Lobby resolution supported by the Nuclear industry.

In today’s Daily Sun, the Citizen’s Climate Lobby and the Flagstaff City Council are pushing Congressman Tom O’Halleran to get with their program.

Make up your minds Council.

The second installment in a series on local issues and the current Flagstaff City Council. Created and posted by a friend. Check it out:

“Setting a goal to help people in need is great, but if your plan is flawed and resources are limited, how many people will you actually help? Is the current City Council of Flagstaff too ideological to actually help people, or is accomplishing a goal “on paper” by any means necessary more important?”

Great video on the current Flagstaff City Council posted by a friend. Check it out:

“If America swerved to avoid the ditch, Flagstaff jumped out of the moving car. Did we truly elect people that represent the will of the entire community, or did the people of Flagstaff get fooled again?”

My Statement Opposing Proposed Carbon Tax & Dividend Resolution

This afternoon the Flagstaff Sustainability Commission voted 5-1 to support a proposed Carbon Tax & Dividend resolution for the City of Flagstaff. I was the lone NO vote. Council will be voting on this resolution sometime in August.

Below is my statement to the Commission explaining my vote:

“On January 28th, 2016 the Flagstaff Sustainability Commission voted 4-3 to support the Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal put forth by the Citizens Climate Lobby. I was one of the three NO votes. I will be voting NO once again, tonight.

While I feel that those advocating for a carbon fee and dividend proposal in Flagstaff have their hearts in the right place, I believe this plan has too many unintended economic consequences and will actually hurt some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

I have not talked to many in Flagstaff who actually like the details of the Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal. Yet, most say they still support it because they have to support something. I can’t just support “something”. Details matter. I would like to remind this commission, and those watching at home, that supporting the wrong thing for the right reasons is still wrong.

I do not expect to sway other commissioners with these comments. I simply want the record to reflect my strong opposition to this resolution.”
