    GUN BAN MOVING FORWARD

    10.22.14

    Yesterday the Corvallis Human Services Committee voted to move a ban on loaded firearms to the full city council.

    Was this based on any actual incidents of violence or accidents involving openly carried firearms on public property?

    Was this the result of a long, reasoned debate that identified a real issue or problem?

    No, this was the result of one member of the committee, Penny York, getting in touch with her feelings.

    As the Corvallis Gazette-Times reported; "York, who admitted that her "decision is colored by my feelings," described her experience of knowing five people who have died from gunfire, four by suicide and one in a hunting incident."

    What this has to do with lawful open carry is a mystery. But then, when dealing with gun
    grabbers, any logic or reason takes a vacation.

    As Richard Johnson, a 2nd Amendment defender who was at the meeting put it; "I was surprised to finally hear the truth from Councilwoman York today.
    In a trance-like soliloquy she detailed her reason for supporting the loaded open carry
    ban. It had absolutely nothing to do with the open carry of a handgun. It also had nothing to
    do with pubic safety, or reduction of violence. It wasn't even about the "fear factor" which was
    repeated in the three minute testimonies again and again. By her own admission it was all about Councilwoman York and her own personal desire to take guns away from everyone (except the police for whom she professed a great fondness).
    There was no attempt to hide the truth." So the rights of the people of Corvallis, and anyone who visits, are going to be trampled on
    because of Councilor York's "feelings" Not because of any facts. Not because of any real problem. Just because of her "feelings".
    According the the Gazette Times, three times as many people spoke in opposition to the proposed ordinance as supported it, but York's "feelings" carried the day, and now the ban moves to the full council. The council is scheduled to take this up at its 6:30 p.m. meeting Nov. 3 at the downtown fire station,

    400 N.W. HarrisonBlvd. Let's fill that room.

    Ceasefire Oregon and "Moms Demand Action" were there to spread their usual lies and hysteria. It's important the the truth gets a hearing as well

    The other committee member who was there for the vote, Bruce Sorte, claimed "most" of the emails he received were "in support" of the ban. He needs to know what you think. Creating restrictions on your rights and ability to protect yourself and your family based on delusions and paranoia is not a rational way to make laws. Let's stop this illness before it spreads.

    Penny York is living in a parallel universe. She is probably beyond help. So let's hope the other members of the council have some grasp on reality.
    Contact info for the entire council is available here.

    In another battle, out-of-state money and workers are pouring into Oregon to defeat Bruce Starr and try to replace him with anti-gun extremist Chuck Riley. New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg is bankrolling these efforts in an attempt to take over the Oregon Senate and ram new prohibitions down the throats of Oregonians. We need to keep this seat. Please donate to, or volunteer for Bruce in these critical closing days of the campaign. Bloomberg has mercenaries walking and dialing to pass new gun bans. We need to meet them head on. You can help Bruce out here.

    Gabby Giffords came to town yesterday.

    With a boatload of money from Bloomberg and other well protected billionaires, she has somehow morphed her anti-gun campaign into a domestic violence issue. She is "on tour" touting the dangers women face from "guns", while ignoring the fact that three people who were killed when she was injured were men.

    For some time now in Oregon, there has been an active effort to use extra legislative efforts to ban as many guns as possible under the guise of "protecting women" when in fact, all these plans just make women less safe.

    Here's a clip from Daylight Disinfectant of yesterday's "invitation only" meeting in Portland with some of those "behind the scenes"

    While I'm not the best public speaker, I will update this thread with my letter to the council:

    Guess it's worthy to note that city council decided to not move forward with this open carry ban for non-chl holders.

    For the time being, Oregon is a preemptive state, so they can't bar CHL holders. Only time will tell if our state will remain in preemptive status now that the socialists have complete control of the legislature.

    Until the Democrats strike that from our State Constitution and/or make Metro its own sovereign nation allowing CC to be banned on buses and MAX. Oh yes, then we will all be much safer :rolleyes:

    It's not in the constitution, its a statute that can be repealed.

    OK, I was thinking of this:

    Oregon Constitution on the right to keep and bear arms

    Article I, Bill of Rights

    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[.]

    Yup, where does it say that the state is preemptive?

    I doesn't. I am saying I was wrong, I was thinking of the RKBA in the Oregon Constitution. Not a bad idea to put it in there though.
