    Politely call YOUR state Senator right now.

    These gun bills just advanced and will be voted out. This will change your rights permanently for the worse, if they pass.

    Email also, as a follow up.

    Sample email below (change to your own taste - keep it polite):



    [your name]
    [your address]
    [your city, state, zip]

    April 18th, 2013

    The Honorable Jeff Kruse
    900 Court St NE S-315
    Salem, OR 97301

    Dear Senator Kruse:

    My name is [insert your name] and I reside at [insert your address] in [insert your city], Oregon. I am employed as a [insert your occupation/retired/homemaker/student/etc].

    I am writing you to ask that you vote No on the following bills:

    Senate Bill 796
    Senate Bill 700
    Senate Bill 699
    Senate Bill 347

    SB 347, the “no guns in schools” will ban concealed carry in virtually all schools. No one has provided a single example of a crime committed by a CHL holder in a school in Oregon…ever.

    SB 699 requires that CHL holders keep their firearms “concealed from view” while in public buildings. The only apparent explanation for why this should be required is that some people are “offended” by or “distressed” at the sight of a firearm in civilian hands. Ironically , we don’t require licenses for open carry, only for concealed carry. Now, because some people have phobias and irrational fears, we are forcing people give up their rights so no one’s “feelings are hurt. There are many things that offend many people. Are we going to outlaw everything anyone objects to?

    SB 700 still requires that I get police permission before giving a gun to your best friend or many family members. It also requires that I obtain forms from the State Police and keep them for 5 years if you transfer a firearm. The fact is, the background check system is already failing on a regular basis and people are delayed sometimes for months because of its regular errors. Expanding this system is a terrible idea.

    Finally, SB 796 has been amended to outlaw online firearms classes. Why? No one seems to know. Ivy League Universities offer online course and college degrees are offered for them. Oregon has a charter school that is completely online. Online education is the wave of the future, it provides a far greater range of instructors than in-person teaching can and there have been exactly zero problems with people who have learned gun safety online. This bill is another idea whose time has clearly not come.

    I appreciate your help and ask that you please send me a response letting me know how you plan to vote on these infringements on my rights.

    Thanks you for your time and considering my request.

    Sincerely,

    [insert your name]

    Got this message from Senator Close today:

    "Today 4 gun bills, SB 347, SB 699, SB 700, and SB 796 were voted on in the Senate Judiciary Committee. I voted no.

    Thank you so much for your input on these issues. I received over 3000 emails in opposition to these gun bills. There were hundreds in favor. A majority of constituent emails from my district were opposed to these bills. In my opinion, the bills target law-abiding citizens.

    I am looking forward following to the progress for school districts, working on their own security issues on the local level. Unfortunately, these bills will not deal with these dangerous problems or help prevent tragedies like the Sandy Hook school shooting or the Clackamas Town Center shooting. I will be focusing on enforcing laws that are currently in place, such as our current background-check laws. We in the legislature continue to work toward strengthening our mental health state and community programs. We passed a bill out of the Senate Judiciary committee today, SB 421 A. The bill deals with identifying and committing dangerous, mentally ill persons.

    Again thanks for writing!


    Senator Betsy Close
    Oregon District 8"
