The Sellout is Complete
SB 554 as amended by the House, has been passed by the Senate and now goes to the governor for her signature.
The bill was rushed onto the schedule last night after having been posted for a vote on June 11th and then June 15th.
6 Republicans Senators once again provided the quorum needed to pass the bill. Last month almost all House Republicans did the same.
The Republican Senators who helped pass the bill were:
Senate Republican Leader Fred Girod rose on the Senate floor to call Oregon Firearms Federation a “fringe group” and said it was not “ok” to threaten people.
This has become a popular theme of Republican “Leaders” who not long ago were calling OFF begging for money.
Apparently we were out bid by the millions in Federal money legislators got in exchange for rolling over.
Of course OFF has never threatened anyone. Ever.
Comically, he also said we were “not welcome in his office and should be banned from the building.”
Perhaps Fred’s mask is cutting off his air and he has not noticed that we, and everyone else, have been banned from the building for a long time. Fred did not consider OFF a “fringe” group when he came to us with his hand out. As you might imagine we will be asking Girod to return the checks we sent to him.
That was YOUR money Girod took to help the sell outs. We hope you’ll join us in our demand for a refund.
Your God given rights to keep your family safe have just been flushed down the toilet by…Republicans.
Throughout this disgraceful display, House Rep Bill Post has attacked OFF, accused us of misleading people and promised that the Republicans had a “secret plan.” Looks like Bill’s mask was a bit too tight as well.
Not participating in this side show were:
They stood up for your rights.
