UPDATE: THIS IS THE LATEST FROM BURDICK 8.40 PM :
The March 14th hearing on four gun safety bills has been postponed for a week or two. We will let you know as soon as they are rescheduled. Thank you for your support!
Senator Ginny Burdick
Believe NONE of what they say. Check the schedule on the link below.
Today, OFF debated “Ceasefire Oregon” at the Portland City Club.
One of the demands that Ceasefire Oregon made repeatedly was for “universal background checks.”
While their spokeswoman claimed that “criminals don’t get background checks” AND claimed that “background checks stop criminals“, here is an interesting fact. The Oregon Background Check System has been shut down today.
Until the bills are officially scheduled we cannot say for sure that anything will happen. So for now it’s all rumor. But it’s also likely.
There are a few things to keep in mind if you plan to come and testify on these bills. At any time, right up to when the hearing starts, Senate Judiciary Chair Prozanski can make any changes he wants. He can cancel the hearing, reschedule it, or kill the bills. He can take unlimited testimony from people who agree with his anti-gun agenda and then give the pro-gun side 30 seconds…or nothing.
The second thing to be aware of is this; one of the bills that may be heard outlaws Oregon citizens from having firearms in the Capitol. That’s your building. The gun grabbers have repeatedly said that the Capitol is “everyone’s” building. That’s why they don’t want you there. It’s for “everyone” but gun owners.Rest assured that the gun grabbers are hoping for some kind of incident in the Capitol with a gun owner, even though time and again we have demonstrated how responsible we are.
