    PORTLAND -- Mayor Sam Adams has postponed plans to implement some type of gun control ordinance, his spokesman said.

    Roy Kauffman said the mayor wants to incorporate feedback received from around the country. He also wants more comments locally and a gun task force needs more time to get underway.

    Adams has proposed a plan with five major points, including creating new penalties for failing to control childrens' access to guns, increasing penalties for convicted gun offenders, and imposing a curfew for juvenile criminals.




    Task force? When are Portlanders going to be able to throw him out?

    To paraphrase Shakespeare: "A policy crafted by an idiot, full of sound and fury and signifying nothing.".

    It's election mudslinging/hide-your-true-agenda season.

    His term ends Jan 1st 2013 so he has a lot of time to do more damage than he already has done.

    Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.
    Sam Adams.

    I got an email from the NRA on this and wrote a letter to his office regarding this. His whole objective was full of unenforceable rules aimed at criminals that only would saddle law abiding citizens with more things that they had to do. I'll see if I can find the text.

    Don't bother Sam he's too busy sweeping up the leaves in front of my house so he can send me a bill for $30 a year.

    Is he really sweeping or watching the poolboy on our hard earned money?
