There are just a few days left to vote in the 2018 general election. The stakes have never been higher.
The Democrat majority in the Oregon legislature has promised to introduce (and may very well already have) a slew of anti-gun bills that will mirror the failed anti-gun ballot measures.
The current governor even went to court to keep secret the bills the Democrats are working on.
We are even seeing some Republicans talking about supporting new gun restrictions. So if you have not already, please take the time to fill in and return your ballot.
The Oregon Firearms candidate ratings are available here if you have not seen them already.
Many counties around Oregon have “Second Amendment Preservation Ordinances” on the ballot. We have received quite a few questions about these measures.
We do think they are far from perfect. Many of them allow the Sheriff of the county to decide what is or is not a constitutional gun law. We believe that is not the role of the sheriff and we certainly would not want a Bloomberg bootlick like Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese deciding what the law is.
That being said, we think they are a great step forward and will send a message to the Portland controlled legislature that the entire state does not support their gun grabbing schemes. If we can pass many or all of them we can still come back and pass improved versions. And in each county that has placed them on the ballot there are now hard working independent patriots who have learned how to get this done. OFF supports these measures.
