Coincidence? Oregon Gun Bill Hearings Postponed…Gabby Giffords & Mark Kelly to Appear in Salem

Here’s an interesting coincideMark-Kelly-Breitbartnce. It’s been announced that the hearings for the many Burdick/Greenlick gun bills have been postponed for “a couple of weeks”.

Now, take a look below to see that, Oh My Gosh, Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark “AR-15” Kelly will be in Salem in a couple of weeks. What? How amazing is that – I wonder if Ginny and Mitch will invite them to the capitol for a tour or something fun like that!

Here’s the information from the Elsinore Theater about how you can spend an evening with Mark and Gabby, who, I might add, seem to be lovely people. Lovely people who are being used shamelessly by the gun grabbing, 2nd Amendment hating left.

4/26/13 Fri

“Endeavour  to Succeed”. An evening with Captain Mark Kelly with guest appearance by Gabby Giffords @ 6:30 pm. Presented by the Medical Foundation of Marion & Polk Counties. Proceeds benefit MedAssist & Project Access.

Coincidence?

The Tale of Rep Mike Hope (44th District Position 2 Lake Stevens) and WA State HB 1588

If you think that a state you don’t live in doesn’t affect you with its laws, think again.  To that end, please share and email around this letter to Rep. Mike Hope, a Marine veteran and current Seattle police officer, who is co-sponsoring a bill to force universal background checks, effectively ending the ability of one law abiding citizen to sell a firearm to another law abiding citizen without the government getting involved.  Several states are doing this, and it is incredibly important that we all get off our butts and stop this madness.

Regarding the bill HB 1588 in the WA State Legislature, sent to Rep. Mike Hope at mike.hope@leg.wa.gov:

Rep. Mike Hope,

As my representative, it is your job to speak for me. Your website says you understand this concept, and as a member of the state legislature, one would hope you’re well-versed enough in the Constitution to grasp the purpose of your elected position. As someone who has worn the uniform of a United States Marine, one would hope you can wrap your head around the basic values that you once defended. Your current support of HB 1588–and your disrespectful, rude, arrogant and even childish comments to your constituents, however, prove otherwise.

Read the rest of the letter at Victory Girls and be sure to share with friends and family living in Washington State.

Ginny Burdick Lays Out Tactics For Gun Grabbing Advocates

https://i0.wp.com/media.oregonlive.com/opinion_impact/photo/11698270-small.jpg

Oregon state Senator Ginny Burdick spoke at the “One Million Moms For Gun Control” rally, February 9th, 2013 ( https://www.facebook.com/events/274285102701019/ ). There, she laid out the plans and tactics that gun grabbers can use to get what they want, which is more legislation based on fear and misinformation. About 100 people turned out for the event, including some pro gun protesters, as opposed to the 1000 some odd who were at the pro gun rally the day before.

Oregonians Assemble Peacefully for 2nd Amendment Rights Rally in Salem

2nd Amendment Rally Salem, Oregon

2nd Amendment Rally Salem, Oregon

Salem, OR: Hundreds of Oregonians gathered today at the Capitol in Salem, Oregon despite the still winter-like weather and the fact that today was a work day for many. Cold hands were wrapped around coffee served by Coffee In Motion, making the damp, chilly temperatures tolerable as we listened to speakers share their thoughts on gun control, unalienable rights and freedom.

I took a vacation day from work so that I could attend and as I strolled through the assembled crowd I was struck again by the dishonest and scandalous way we are portrayed in the media. Too often it is as snaggle-toothed mouth breathers, barely able to put two words together, or as wild-eyed extremists on the par with the worst villains in history. What I saw today were families, couples, young men and women, bikers, and a father with his small son who was thrilled to have just been given a badge sticker by a law enforcement officer. I also met two gentlemen who graciously gave me money to purchase more reference cards to hand out when the “free” ones I had requested from Capitol staff ran out. To these men I say thank you, thank you for trusting me to do what I said I would do. I was able to hand out an additional 280 reference cards thanks to their generosity!

These people are among the best of our community – law abiding citizens who are fed up with government infringement on our rights and the intrusion into their lives.

Standing up for 2nd Amendment Rights

My hope is that some elected officials took a moment out of their day to cross the street and chat with their constituents, spend a moment or two engaging in conversation about how their decisions effect the people who elected them to serve. Unfortunately, most of these legislators were not actually on the premises today so, they missed a golden opportunity to take the pulse of the people, to see and to hear what matters to Oregonians.
