PLEASE DON’T RELAX
While many Oregonians are looking forward to the Superbowl, Floyd Prozanski and Ceasefire Oregon are working overtime to try to pass a firearms registration bill.
Make no mistake, if this bill passes they will be back for more.
In 2000, the anti-rights extremists said “gun shows” were the problem. So they took millions in out-of-state money to pass a ban on private trades at gun shows.
Now they say the problem is a firearm you give to your best friend or father-in-law!
If they succeed in passing this you can rest assured they will be back to ban virtually all modern firearms just as they attempted in 2013 with House Bill 3200
Ceasefire Oregon has asked anti-rights extremists to “PACK THE ROOM
” on Thursday Feb. 6 when they say Prozanski will be hearing SB 1551
There is still no official schedule showing this bill will be heard, so we can only assume Prozanski has sent advance notice to his friends while providing no information to the public. (The new “transparency” at work.)
“The majority of those testifying will be members of invited panels (people who have been pre-selected by the committee to speak at the hearing).”
If they are right (and apparently they are privy to info being hidden from you by Prozanski)
this could well mean that Floyd is preparing a dog and pony show front loaded with anti-gunners. (Gabby Giffords?)
That’s why it’s essential that you make your voice heard loud and clear. We cannot let Floyd’s backroom deals destroy our rights.
It’s no secret that the anti-gunners will say anything and do anything do ram through their plans to disarm all of us.While Prozanski is telling people that “each month in Oregon, an average of 190 felons are denied access to guns because of background checks…” his cohort and fellow traveler, Senator Michael Dembrow, is reporting “Under the current program approximately 800 requests are denied each month..”Right, and 86% of statistics are made up on the spot.
What none of them want to talk about is the Department of Justice report that said of the 2393 people who received denials when they tried to purchase guns in 2010, a whopping 90 were arrested. That’s less than 4%!
For Senators Prozanski or Dembrow or Roblan to try to pretend this charade keeps guns away from felons is a joke.
With your help we have beaten these people back time after time. Now they are counting on a flood of cash from New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg to help them buy votes. Your action is critical. Please consider using this link to let the legislature know where you stand.

I urge you to vote NO on SB 1551. This bill is a registration scheme pure and simple. It does nothing to prevent felons from getting guns but is an unwarranted invasion of my privacy.
Vote against any restrictions on private transfers.
