The super majority set their Judiciary agenda today and are pushing the same legislation that Republican Senators killed last time when they walked out in protest. They have scheduled hearings with invited testimony only for “legislative days” (before the actual session even begins) to push another version of HB 2505 from 2019.
“Legislative Concept 38,” (mandatory gun lock downs) will be heard on January 15th at 2 PM in Hearing Room F.
We have been told that House Rep. Courtney Neron will be a co-sponsor.
Because it is invited testimony only, we can all expect the same red shirts and gun haters only, to testify on taking away your rights. They can forbid you from testifying, but they cannot keep you out of the hearing.
January legislative days are a precursor to what will be railroaded through in the first weeks of the February session. They are ready to punish law abiding Oregonians with the same garbage legislation they introduced last session and you are not invited to tell them what you think. This is the supermajority’s version of “representative government.” Silencing any dissent.
