THE OTHER R’S HAVE LEFT THE BUILDING
Amid a flurry of press releases, today the Oregon House Republicans joined the Senate Republicans and walked out.
Citing the Democrat’s abuse of power, the House Republicans shut down all business on the House floor.
Tomorrow’s scheduled vote on HB 4005 (the gun lock down bill) appears to be a dead issue for now. This is a good thing as the bill’s only purpose was to harass law-abiding gun owners and cripple youth shooting events.
As in the Senate, one “Republican” stayed behind with the Democrats.
Anti-gun militant Cheri Helt stayed on the floor and shows no sign of joining her caucus in this protest.
Helt, you will recall, was still demanding a ban on “bump-stocks” long after they had been outlawed by the Trump Administration. Maybe she can use this quiet time to catch up on current events.
OFF salutes House Republican leader Christine Drazan for spearheading this walkout and all the Republican House members who have had the courage to stand up for Oregon.
