Can you share the source of that info? Do you know if they have found a sponsor?Last I heard they were trying to get it submitted sometime last week, so they could try and push it thru for a final vote by Feb 14th.
Who knows what's going on in the background. I am hoping (like during IP43) a lot of politicians don't want to touch it with a 10 foot pole since it would pretty much break any chance they have of passing any other gun-control legislation (my opinion), and there may not be enough support for it even in Blue Salem.
The February date and timeline to get it out is from one of the chief supporters (Pastor Knutson) that he said during their rally a week or so back, as well as a radio broadcast on KBOO.Can you share the source of that info? Do you know if they have found a sponsor?
Interesting, thanks for the info. If it is going to get sponsored I would like to see Rep Bynum and Rep Williams sponsor it. They both had tight elections and maybe this would cause them to loose in next election.The February date and timeline to get it out is from one of the chief supporters (Pastor Knutson) that he said during their rally a week or so back, as well as a radio broadcast on KBOO.
As for finding a sponsor, that is just my opinion. I know last time a ban was proposed, about 12 reps jumped on it having not even read it. Many said afterwards they didn't agree with contents of it (like random police inspections in peoples homes), but it was "on the right track". It never left the committee, or even got a hearing (back in 2013). It is also the last rally I remember having well over 2,000 people attend as a result. And I believe I have heard some dem senators say things like they won't support a mag limit. Not to mention even some gun-control supporters in Salem think Ceasefire is just plain nuts (the 'lobby' arm of LEVO). Combine that with how much resistance dems have had trying to pass less restrictive and onerous bills, there may just not be an appetite to bite off so much in one session. Again, my opinion based on tidbits here and there over the last few months and years.
