    Please write the Ashland, Oregon city council and explain to them how this would be a bad idea.


    https://www.change.org/petitions/the-city-council-of-ashland-oregon-adopt-moderate-practical-gun-safety-ordinances-2


    Please write these folks and let them know:" I will not be interested in spending time in Ashland. I will not Patronize businesses there, or send my kids to school there. I will not visit to see the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, if these types of ordinances which infringe on the Bill of Rights are passed.

    Here is the link to do so... City of Ashland, Oregon -

    We need to hit them and hit them hard now.

    Just copy and paste what Is up above, or write your own.

    There's no way to leave a comment without clicking on a support vote for their stupidity.


    Those who give up a little of their liberty for a little (false) safety, deserve neither safety or liberty.

    Something that I have never understood; How is it legal for Portland and maybe in the near future Ashland to regulate loaded magazines if they are not attached to a firearm? I read and re-read the statute many times and I can not find anywhere where it says the Cities and Counties can regulate loaded magazines or clips (unless attached to a firearm); and yet some, like Portland have it written in their City ordinances.

    Legal does not get in the way anymore. They've taken it from O and do just what they want to do. Legalities be damned.

    I do find it humorous that the top couple of comments come from Joseph Stalin and James Hendrix - Hendrix is openly opposed and Stalin supports so they can completely control the population more efficiently... several after are brainwashed people claiming things like the 2nd only applies to muskets and hunting regs only allow for 5 rounds so all should be limited to that... guess more of the population is brainwashed every year...

    Isn't Ashland the epicenter of Oregon's social progressive movement? Much like the city of Seattle (The Land of Oz), they are a clueless, myopic herd who have been duped into believing the utopian city can exist.

    They used to fly a "planet earth" flag @ city hall instead of the US flag. That tells you everything you need to know about the place.

    I grew up north of ashland. It used to be a nice town. But after the hippies and shakespeare people,came the better and smarter than you really nasty progressive, national socialists and communists . It is a theatre and college town with blinders on.

    I was thinking that the City council should be ordained to get a special license from the sheriff in order to voice their 1st amendment rights, and should they do so, be limited to 5 words.

    Ashland is and has been a thorn in the side of Jefferson for many years…..simply Californians trying to turn it into California, mixed with idiots who want to turn it in to trendy Portland….Ashland has been lost long ago. If this passes , don’t get pulled over but the city limits is where most that mentality ends, plenty of folks in the hills of South Rogue Valley with Ashland addresses that probably won’t let this happen, for the most part more good people live in the outskirts than in towns so we don’t suffer from the population center sheep mentality …..If it passes I will completely ignore it, if and when I pass through that cesspool

    If anyone has any info on organized protest I will show as will many others

    Down in our neck of the woods we simply refer to that town on the other end of the Rogue Valley as "The People's Republik of Ashland"...

    Here are some provisions that could be game changers for those who want to use them.

    #1 Oregon Constitution, Article 1, Section 27.

    "Right to bear arms; military subordinate to civil power. The people shall have the right to bear arms for the defence [sic] of themselves, and the State, but the Military shall be kept in strict subordination to the civil power[.]"

    #2 Chapter 174 of the Oregon Revised Statutes is titled "Construction of Statutes; General Definitions". The word "Construction" here means the act of "construing", i.e. interpreting, understanding. This chapter is the Legislature's guidebook on how to accurately understand and discern what the Legislature intends in the law. Judges use these provisions to properly ascertain the law in order to make judicial determinations. See ORS 174.030:

    "ORS 174.030 Construction favoring natural right to prevail. Where a statute is equally susceptible of two interpretations, one in favor of natural right and the other against it, the former is to prevail."

    So if the Legislature says that an interpretation in favor of a natural right "IS TO PREVAIL" by default, then that's the end of the story. An ordinance that pretends to legitimately infringe a right like Art. 1, Sec. 27 above, loses by default and a judge is bound by oath to declare so.

    Ashland has to be one of the most liberal holes in Oregon. I had to work down there for a few weeks on a job and never in my life ran into so many drugged out liberal losers. It was amazing.....

    This is how progressive took over the voting in America by electing Secretary of States know can't get 2A taken over at a Fed level lets start with every city council we can. If you say it or do it enough times then you own it truth or not. Its the Alinsky way. Its always the little things that add up to the end of your rights.

    My Son began school at Ashland, but also didnt like the politics there, so left SOC and went for a masters at George Fox instead.
    Now we have a granddaughter about to graduate from SOC. She is lost to the left, but we still have hope for her. :-/
    The whole place revolves around the hollywood mentality.
