I came across an interview that the Oregon Senate Majority Leader Ginny Burdick gave to Oregon Public Broadcasting 3 weeks ago. I don't recall that anyone has posted this interview before? If anyone did, I missed it, and I apologize for re-posting. First off, I am sort of appalled to learn that rabid gun control advocate Ginny Burdick has been promoted to such a key leadership position in the Oregon State Legislature. This is not at all good news for Oregon's gun owners. There is sort of good news, and also bad news stated during this interview. The good news is that Burdick indicated that the 2016 Short Legislative Session does not have enough time in it to pass any new gun control measures. So it would seem that we will indeed be safe for another year in Oregon. However, Burdick does indicate in the interview that gun control is a top priority for her and the rest of the legislature. But she complained that a short session is just not long enough time to be able to pass "complex" legislation. That sounds rather ominous to me. Complex would seem to me to indicate that really significant legislation is what is being considered. So it looks like 2017 will be the battleground year for gun control in Oregon. But is there any way that in next November's election, Republicans could somehow get back the two Senate seats that they lost? If the damage from the last election, financed by Bloomberg's money, could only somehow be undone, our gun rights in Oregon could remain safe in 2017. Here is a link to an article about this interview with Burdick, as well as an audio recording of it: http://www.opb.org/news/article/salem-gun-control-conversation-ginny-burdick/ . .
