[VIDEO] Salem, OR: Shooting Victim’s Family Sets Record Straight

Today’s hearing in Salem, Oregon on SB 1551, Senator Prozanski’s gun registration expansion, was an enlightening look at how the left and the right view the gun control vs. gun rights issue. Former astronaut, Mark Kelly, husband of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, provided a little celebrity cache to the hearing but, it was the personal testimony of dozens of regular Oregonians that dominated the proceedings. While gun owners are often referred to as a “vocal minority,” the sign-up sheets for testimony showed 19 people in support of the bill, with 28 opposed.

Portland media outlets were out in full force today and the nightly news broadcasts are peppered with snippets from today’s testimony. What you won’t see in the MSM is the full testimony from impassioned Oregonians who got up at the crack of dawn to make sure they got on the list to testify. Here is the first of five videos recorded today in Salem.

The anti gun crowd continue to use the death of Jessie Doyle as a reason to support more gun controls. Jessi’s brother in law, Chris Cochran, sets the record straight.
