DON’T START CELEBRATING

07.03.17 Senate Bill 719, Brian Boquist’s gun confiscation bill, has been passed out of the House Rules Committee with NO public hearing and virtually NO notice.

5.31.17 The Oregon Legislature has announced that “sine die” is “imminent.” “Sine Die” means the last day of the legislative session. (Literally “without a date.”) While this does not mean we actually have an announced day for closing the circus down, it does mean the rules change.  Once this announcement has been made, the notice […]

They Never Give Up

05.16.17 They’re back. After the failure of their last bill that sought to force gun dealers into the mental health business, House Rep (and gubernatorial hopeful) Knute Buehler and anti-gun extremist Senator Elizabeth Hayward are back with a watered down version. HB 3460, introduced today, would require the Oregon Health Authority to create “a firearm safety […]

Gun Confiscation Bill Passes Senate. Battle Moves to the House.

05.01.17 On the  communist holiday of “May Day” the Oregon Senate passed, on an almost party line vote, the Boquist/Burdick gun grab, SB 719A. Senator Betsy Johnson was the only Democrat voting “no.”  Boquist was the only Republican voting “yes.” The Democrats immediately issued a press release calling the vote “non-partisan.”  Senator Boquist’s floor speech revealed a very […]
