Anti-2A Legislation Introduced in Oregon

We received this note yesterday from a reader in Oregon. These legislators aren’t just going after the Second Amendment. Apparently, they don’t think much of the Fourth Amendment either. His note begins with a synopsis of the elements of the proposed legislation and directs us to visit the Oregon Firearms Federation.

You can have ONE “Assault Weapon” with THREE Magazines ALL THE REST have to be turned in, the one you keep along with the 3 magazines will have to be registered and “stored securely” and only shot at a local Range!!

And of course a warrantless in home inspections to make sure it’s safely locked up! These are just some of the Bill!

Link to the OFFA FB & Website page giving more details, we also of course posted it on our FB last night right after we found out about it

    The idiocy for some of these proposals is daunting.

  2. Lawrence says:

    Next up – you are only allowed to have one car per family and it must be family sedan with a high safety rating, and a fuel-efficient hybrid power-plant. Owners of older, less efficient vehicles will have to register them for a “polluter tax” and have the gas tank swapped out (at a government-approved facility) for one that only holds 3 gallons.

    Families will also be restricted to only having one child per household, and one pet (but cats and dogs will not be permitted – and all current owners of cats and dogs must surrender their pets to the authorities for extermination).

    I would be very concerned. It states in the bill (there is a link to the PDF in that story) that: “SECTION 6. This 2013 Act being necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety, an emergency is declared to exist, and this 2013 Act takes effect on its passage.”

  4. Nick says:

    Surely you can’t be serious! This piece of legislation looks like it was drafted from deep within the confines of the ideological ivory tower.

  5. SGT Rock says:

    This is just completely ludicrous and is a slap in the face to the citizenry of Oregon. Oregonians, you better start emailing and calling your elected officials and tell them you won’t stand for laws that infringe upon your constitutional rights.

  6. Bill says:

    Not to be complacent, but remember that it literally costs nothing to “introduce” a bill, with full knowledge that it is completely unrealistic and has no potential for passing. It is frequently done as pure political theater and pandering to a particular lobby or constituency. Bills like these, along with those declaring an Official State Turtle and Ella Mae Snoot as Citizen of the Day for serving as a librarian for 65 years are like the nuisance lawsuits of legislation.

    Maybe worth a quick email to your Rep/Senator, but definitely not a coronary.

  7. Min says:

    There is reportedly a significant response in the positive about this bill. There’s twice as much of a negative, but surprisingly some people think it’s okay to give up the security of their life and home for the false security of a disarmed populace.

    Perhaps they’re doing it to make the next draft seem less ridiculous.

    • SSD says:

      The 4th amendment implications are significant. Can you imagine the government saying it is ok for gays to marry but can come into their home at anytime to make sure they are having safe sex or its ok to have marijuana but that the government can come into a pot smoker’s home anytime it wants to ensure they don’t have too much marijuana or other, illegal drugs. In the long run, the liberal agenda has much more to lose. They are very short sighted to stand by on these laws that diminish the protections set forth in the Bill of Rights.

  8. Bill says:

    One thing I did notice from the Oregon website, where the bill’s sponsor’s statement/reponse is linked: he states that he deleted over a thousand emails that he had received. I’m not sure that it’s legal for a public official to discard correspondence that might be construed as public records. Assuming here wasn’t being e-bombed…

  9. Luke says:

    as an oregon resident, I just sent an email to every senator and representative asking them to oppose this.
    I’m not worried about this passing but it took me like 30 seconds, there is no reason not to.

    This is the main problem with most states; the majority of the state is held hostage by the “leftist elite” in the state’s main city. This is the same story in Colorado. The entire state is being affected by the constituents of Denver. Now we see Oregon being held hostage by the very vocal minority in Portland. It is time for the “rest” of the state population to aggressively take-on these vocal political groups.
