Oregon Becomes Eighth State to Pass Progressive Gun Control Bill

Traitors are becoming more and more obvious. Watch your asses, Oregonians, they're coming for you just like the rest of us.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon bill expanding background checks to encompass nearly all gun sales in the state made it through the Legislature on Monday, overcoming obstacles that stymied two previous attempts to pass similar laws.

The measure now heads to Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, who has indicated support. Her signature would make Oregon the eighth state to require screening before firearms could be transferred between private, unrelated owners. No other states have passed such legislation this year, advocates said.

Oregon’s effort is the latest after the long-running debate over gun rights intensified following the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012. Last year, Washington state passed a ballot initiative requiring background checks on all gun sales and transfers, and Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said the group has the signatures for a similar ballot initiative in Nevada.

Supporters have tried twice before to expand background checks in Oregon, saying it closes a loophole that allows people to purchase firearms online without a review. Neither attempt made it past a Senate vote, but Democrats managed to increase their majorities in both chambers after last year’s election, partially because key candidates in the Senate were backed by billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety.

​The police are not enforcing this law in Washington and I doubt they will in Oregon.

Police In Washington State Refusing To Enforce I-594

“We wanted to make sure that the citizens of Lewis County knew that we weren’t looking to make criminals out of ordinary citizens,” explained prosecutor Jonathan Meyer. “We’re not going to try to trap citizens into transferring a gun to a friend and then try to nab them on a violation of 594. That’s not what we’re interested in.”

Meyer and Sherriff Rob Sanza are the first elected leaders in Washington State to publicly state that they will not enforce the new law. But they are far from the only officials in the country who have taken public stands against gun control laws.

One Oregon Sheriff spoke out on this last month.

Oregon Sheriff: Gun Control Push ‘Borderline Treasonous,’ Will Not Enforce

While Oregon Democrats stood with Gabby Giffords and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence to push expanded background checks on April 1, Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer stood for the law-abiding citizens whom the checks will target by describing the gun control push as “borderline treasonous.”

Palmer also made clear that if the Democrats pass the measure there is zero chance of his office enforcing it.

Anybody that says these weasels are not out to circumvent your 2nd amendment rights are either flat out liars, extremely naive or wholeheartedly support the agenda to circumvent your 2nd amendment rights! Anyone with at least a 70 IQ knows that actual criminals do not get their firearms through lawful means in the first place. Black market or theft is how they come in to possession of 99% of their firearms. I have made it plain over the last 20 years that if someone does not support my Rights as a American as written in the "Bill of Rights", in this case the 2nd amendment, they will not even get the time of day from me. I will break off all associations with them and or not buy from them if their own a business. Don't Support the "Bill of Rights" then F-You! Before you spout it's their 1st amendment to stand against what ever they choose and how dare you dissociate from them. Well you cannot use the 1st amendment to try and take my 2nd amendment.

Let's be clear also, you have to have a understanding of incrementalism to understand why the slugs are trying to axe the 2nd amendment. When someone is trying to take your Rights away they cease to be trustworthy what so ever.......period!
