The man whose family fought the city of Las Vegas over its move to take their Fremont Street property cannot understand why the Legislature wants voters to “water down” a constitutional amendment that protects people like him. Harry Pappas said he is shocked by Question 4, the proposal put on the Nov. 2 ballot by state lawmakers. If voters approve the question, then they revise the Peoples’ Initiative to Stop Taking Our Land (PISTOL) constitutional amendment that 60 percent of them approved in 2008.
