SALEM, OREGON: Two days after Senate Democrats claimed they would not seek a ban on modern firearms and feeding devices, Democrats in the Oregon House introduced just that.
Seven Senators joined with eight House Reps to introduce a sweeping ban on virtually all modern firearms. Among the Senators is, of course, Ginny Burdick, who claimed on Wednesday “that she is backing off an attempt to push through a bill on gun clips that she drafted following the December shootings at the Clackamas Mall.” The other sponsors are:
Representatives BAILEY, BUCKLEY, DEMBROW, FREDERICK, READ, REARDON, TOMEI, Senators , DINGFELDER, HASS, MONNES- ANDERSON, MONROE, SHIELDS, STEINER- HAYWARD.
I have the sneaking suspicion that this is an Overton Window ploy on the part of the Democrats in the Oregon legislature. Put forth an outrageous, naked attempt to ban guns and when the people predictably get pissed off – step back and make “common sense” compromises. They will water down their bill and still get to incrementally strip Oregonians of their 2nd Amendment rights – just a little bit at a time. This must be stopped cold – no compromise, no horse trading, STOPPED! Democrats have proven time and again that they cannot be trusted – they will lie, cheat and steal to push their agenda. Gloves off friends – we are in the fight of our lives and failure is not an option!
