So, here in Oregon, we have our "short session" coming up in the legislature. I generally hope they don't get a lot done. But this morning, I sent an email to both my state Sentator and Rep asking if they could do a bill to add CHL holders to the list of exemptions for when a background check is required. My thinking is this: CHL already do a fingerprint check, which is more thorough than the phone check That check is done every 4 years when it's renewed And you get issued an ID, so checking if someone has one is pretty easy Both of my legislators voted against SB941 last year, so maybe they'll go for it. I'm not going to hold my breath either way. But if anyone wants to do something similar, you can go to https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/ to look up your person and email them. It's pretty easy. I've worked with these folks and their staff, and here's my very humble opinion if your legislator votes the "other way": If you get all mad when you contact them, they'll tune you out (this is prob true for anyone). If you're quiet and calm, but use a lot of cold logic, they'll still tune you out. BUT if you get emotional and can even pull a tear-jerker story or scenario out, they're more apt to listen and consider what you're saying. Again. Humble opinion.
