A legislature is a deliberative assembly with the authority to make laws for a political entity such as a country or city. Legislatures form important parts of most governments; in the separation of powers model, they are often contrasted with the executive and judicial branches of government.
Laws enacted by legislatures are known as legislation. Legislatures observe and steer governing actions and usually have exclusive authority to amend the budget or budgets involved in the process.
The members of a legislature are called legislators. In a democracy, legislators are most commonly popularly elected, although indirect election and appointment by the executive are also used, particularly for bicameral legislatures featuring an upper chamber.

Use the the search word "firearms" after clicking on the "bills"...
Ok NW Firearms folk who live in Oregon.... this is my first political post, maybe my last. I have to tell you that I'm scared to death that the Oregon Legislature will cripple our ability to acquire, own and use firearms.
Now I see a lot of reactionary posts about how bad this legislation...
