Would FFL dealers be unburdened from most of restrictions that were proposed in IP43? Which restrictions would they have still been subject too? For example could FFL holders in Oregon still purchase firearms banned by IP43 and use them for personal use?
Are the feds cracking down on kitchen...
Don't get me wrong, I am a happy camper that IP43 is dead. But one downside might be that with IP43 missing from the ballot, it could temper voter turn out. I suppose it could affect turn out on both sides. Does anybody else share this concern? How can we replace that motivation to vote for the...
I think it is pretty well recognized that near term threats of anti-gun laws are a big boon for guns and ammo sales. I am guessing that is why we didn't get much support from LGSs in the fight to defeat IP43. I would like to recognize Tick Licker Firearms in Salem for being a lone voice among...
The Supreme Court sent it back to the AG to correct the misleading caption (Assault Weapon language).
Even if they did that today, we have 10 days to appeal (which has to pass before it can move forward).
We win, game over (for now). Formal post from OOC coming...
... Or "get free training on the initiative process and how/how-not to gather signatures!!"
I would encourage people to attend. Not only to get involved or "listen" to the other side, but to learn what they are doing first hand. And what not to do (i.e. how to monitor signature gathers later...
If you filed a comment on the proposed ballot title for IP43 a few days ago, you now have standing to appeal the revised ballot title to the Oregon Supreme Court. I'm told that this will further delay signature gathering until the Oregon Supreme Court can deal with the appeals. The form for...

As one of the folks who complained about the original language, I got sent the PDFs of the final approval:

I think there may be a crime or ethics violation due to:
1 – Extreme leftist Ellen Rosenblum being involved in the ballot title process.
2 – Using the words “assault weapon” in the suggested ballot title; clearly a blatant lie to deceive voters.
3 – Tax exempt religious organizations involved...
Last evening at 5pm was the deadline for submitting comments on the ballot title for IP 43, the firearms confiscation measure. This measure would ban not only almost all modern firearms but could potentially even ban some lever action rifles.
Anyone who commented has standing to challenge the...
My goal is to take as much of their time as possible. :) But not your time - just skim it, use anything I've written in your letter if you want to, let me know what I should remove.
Sorry I'm not a good writer, but here it is. Should I remove the last sentence in PART 1, section 1?
