Yamhill Shoots Down Second Amendment Ordinance


After passionate testimony in favor of protecting Second Amendment rights (in a packed room) and (a few) others claiming the Second Amendment  is obsolete, used by people who “fetishize” firearms, two of three Yamhill County Commissioners voted to kill a Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance.

Only Commissioner Mary Starrett stood up for your rights.

Chair Rick Olson  ( and Commissioner Casey Kulla  ( voted to allow the Portland controlled legislature to continue to strip you of your rights.

Starrett addressed concerns the other commissioners and county counsel had with the ordinance’s language by moving that the staff work with the Sheriff to craft an ordinance that addressed those concerns. Her motion was defeated.

We want to thank Commissioner Starrett (  for standing strong for the Second Amendment and all the articulate gun owners who testified so eloquently in favor of liberty.
