    As you know, SB 941, the Prozanski/Hoyle gun owner registration bill was passed with an “emergency clause.”

    This is the process that races the bill into effect and essentially eliminates the public’s ability to refer it to a vote of the people.

    There are many games the establishment in Salem plays to limit citizens’s involvement, but this is one of the most egregious.

    “Emergency” clauses are supposed to be used for “the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety” but the process is commonly abused with “emergency” clauses being attached to bills dealing with subjects as mundane as vanity license plates and interior decorators.

    Real emergencies are rare, abuses of the process are common. It’s time to put a stop to the fabricated “emergencies” and return power to the people. And you can help.

    Please visit http://nofakeemergencies.com/ to learn more about this absurd game and sign the petition to place a measure on the ballot to stop the charade.

    You can download a petition on line and mail it in. Please share this information with your friends, family and neighbors who are also tired of having their voices silenced by fake emergencies. This is a constitutional amendment, so we need every signature we can get. Thank you.

    Over half of all the bills that CAN have an emergency clause GET an emergency clause in Oregon. Please sign the petition and stop this legislative abuse.

    Yeah, I figured it needed a revival. It's crap that these Chicken Little legislators think it's OK to subvert the People's right to vote just as long as they say the sky is falling. :mad:
