Bad Idea Becomes A Bad Bill

02.28.17 Yesterday we told you about LC 1767 , a draft for a bill that would allow a “household member” or law enforcement agent to request that a person’s guns and rights be taken away if they convinced a court that the person was an “extreme risk.”  Today we can report that the draft has been introduced as […]

The Resurrection of a Very Bad Idea

02.27.17 You may recall in 2016, Senator Floyd Prozanski introduced SB 1551. This piece of legislation bordered on the surreal. It was something that would have been considered too extreme for the Cold War Kremlin. Basically, it allowed people with zero qualifications to make anonymous accusations that resulted in lost gun rights for whoever they […]

BLOOMBERG STOOGE LOSES

12.14.16 THANK YOU. JOB WELL DONE. After a brief round of astonishingly softball questions, the Lane County Commissioners have sent Bloomberg stooge, Val Hoyle, to continue in private life. They have chosen Jim Manning to take Chris Edwards’ vacated Senate seat. The final vote was 2-3 with Bozievich and Leiken voting in favor of Hoyle, […]

VAL HOYLE IS BACK

12.12.16 After her defeat to fascist Brad Avakian in her run for Secretary of State, (who himself lost to a rational person, Dennis Richardson) we could well face anti-gun extremist Val Hoyle back in the legislature. You will recall it was Hoyle who rammed through the worst gun bill in Oregon history, SB 941. She […]

FIRST ANTI-GUN BILL ANNOUNCED.

11.30.16 Kate Brown has announced the first of what we are sure will be an epidemic of anti-gun bills for 2017.

Currently Oregon law contains a safeguard, similar to Federal […]

Anti-Constitution Multnomah Judge Wants ALL Guns Banned

10.04.16 By now you have probably heard about the outrageous and inexcusable outburst by Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Walker. While sentencing a killer for a shooting that took place in August, Walker went off the rails and declared: “If I could I would take all the guns in America, put them on big […]
