    Yay! Many thanks for stepping forward Radian Weapons and Noveske, we need to get this information out far and wide. Time to go load up Salem. Hopefully this can be kept family friendly so children can attend with their parents.

    Time to have a significant show of force... Actually, long overdue.

    Folks, let’s talk this up and get a serious turnout for this event!

    This is a great idea. However, between now and then, the people who blame your hobby for the crimes of others are making progress, marking up bills and planning how to say, "it's for the children". We still need to FLOOD their emails, phones and mailboxes. Be polite, but firm. Be right. Make it clear that you and everyone you know are fully aware that almost all of the street cops say that banning your hobby will make no difference in crime. No threats, other than to donate to their next opponent. Just clear communication that your right of self defense is sacred. Please read below for some ideas to communicate in those emails. Also, go to the news websites and post there. Politicans see which way the crowd is going. Form that crowd. They need to see that they have awakened a sleeping giant. You can't depend on the Oregon Supreme Court to overturn it if it passes.

    This is the Oregon legislature main page. You can find all of their emails here. Find yours, find Courtney, find the committee members. Email all of them. Phone and letters too.

    Legislators and voters should know this. If you help, they will.

    MYTH: Police want stricter gun laws
    TRUTH: Police on the street overwhelmingly support gun rights for citizens without police records. The only police who say otherwise are a handful of political appointee chiefs. Street cops know better and don't owe the mayor. These are just three of many links:

    Dear Legislator:
    I am disgusted by a blatant attempt to punish law abiding gun owners for the crimes of a handful of people. It is especially bad when those crimes could have been prevented, but were not because of political considerations. A famous example is the Parkland school shooting. You say, "see something, say something", yet the police, sheriffs and FBI were all called out on Niklaus Cruz over 40 times for violence and threats to others. Yet the county sheriff did nothing about it, preferring to take PROMISE program money to divert Cruz to more "counseling". Nothing even when Cruz posted that he wants to grow up to be a school shooter. No arrests. With no arrests, Cruz passed his background check.

    When Cruz arrived at the high school with his weapon, the deputies let him enter. He was already known to them as someone not allowed to enter. Then the shooting started and the deputies stayed outside. Next, the Sheriff ran to the CNN cameras to blame innocent gun owners for his failure to stop an obvious, known predator.

    All in all, a textbook case of law enforcement failure. Rather than blame Cruz, or even the authorities who failed for years to do their jobs, you criminalize an entire class of law abiding citizens. Is this what the Party has become?

    Dear legislator:

    Deaths from mass shootings get all the headlines, but they are extremely rare compared to other violent crime, even now. There have been 1135 mass shooting deaths since 1966 (Washington Post). That represents less than 2 years of gangster on gangster violence in Chicago.

    In any recent year in the US, gangsters who already ignore murder laws shoot each other and innocent victims with guns they won't register or give up. People who ignore murder laws will ignore gun laws too. Do you care? Or is this just about the politics?

    The ice.gov website enumerates 2038 homicides committed by illegal immigrants they deported in 2018 alone. Add to that 2085 kidnappings, 50,000 assualts, 80,000 drunk driving, 76,000 drug offenses, 12,600 burglaries, 23,000 obstruction of justice, 5562 robberies, 12,600 burglaries, 5300 sexual assaults.
    Here is a link to the 2018 ICE report: The numbers are in table 1

    https://www.ice.gov/doclib/about/offices/ero/pdf/eroFY2018Report.pdf

    The ICE website has similar data for previous years with similar crime counts.

    Border control would stop more homicides every year than the total number of mass shooting victims since 1966. Do you care? Or is this just about the politics?

    << To the readers here: Do not interpret my post as anti-immigrant. Interpret this as shining a light on what dishonest politicians claim they care about versus what they do about it >>

    I was wondering: would it make sense to get other manufacturers involved, e.g. S&W, Daniel Defense, or even Ammo Manufacturers like Federal? They also have a lot to lose.

    There could be a sign-up sheet here where members could select one or more mfg. to contact.

    Just an idea.

    EDIT: I would probably first check with Radian and Noveske to make sure they’re Ok with it.

    That's a good idea. There are other companies getting involved including Oregon Rifleworks and BlownDeadline. It is likely other companies will join in as the event grows.

    A GoFundMe page has also been set up for bus transportation from around the state, radio and T.V. ads to raise awareness, and entertainment and food at the event.

    Try and get your wife, GF, daughter to attend. The more women standing up for their rights to defend themselves carries much more weight than a bunch of guys in camo.

    I think the plan is to get Oregon manufactures involved. I would really like to see Crimson Trace, Gerber, Benchmade, and Leupold get involved.
