    Where Are Our Sheriffs?

    03.27.15 In the recent past, Oregon Sheriffs have taken a vocal and passionate stand in defense of the 2nd Amendment rights of the people who elected them. Now? With a tiny number of exceptions, like Sheriff Glenn Palmer of Grant County, who has proudly stood for gun rights, the sheriffs and the Sheriffs Association have […]

    Prozanski Coordinates Anti-Gun Bills With Anti-Gun Groups

    03.27.15 As we told you yesterday, the anti-gun extremists in the Oregon Legislature have pulled out all the stops to race through a dangerous gun owner registration bill. SB 941 would force you to conduct firearms transfers through a licensed dealer at whatever cost he chose to charge. Of course, the complexities of trying to […]

    GUN OWNER REGISTRATION BILL INTRODUCED!

    03.26.15 The long promised gun owner registration bill has been introduced. SB 941 requires police background checks on private transfers of firearms. Now the failed background check system you are subject to at gun stores will be required when you give a gun to your best friend. The bill has a long list of co-sponsors […]

    Gun Confiscation Bill Heard In Senate Committee Today

    03.25.15 Today the Senate Judiciary Committee heard SB 525. The bill expands the ability of the state to seize firearms from people who have been neither accused of, nor convicted of, committing a crime. The room was filled with supporters whose testimony can only be described as incoherent, inconsistent and misleading. Everyone who testified in […]

    MORE GUN BILLS MOVING. ACT NOW.

    03.23.05 Tomorrow, as you know, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be hearing SB 913, a bill to outlaw the sale of ivory. This does not outlaw the sale of new ivory, it outlaws the sale of almost all ivory no matter how old. An amendment to the bill limits the definition of “ivory” to mean the […]

    Two Pro Rights Victories, And A “Mammothly” Stupid Bill

    03.20.15 First Pro-Gun Victory. Yesterday your voice was heard loud and clear. HB 2628, which was sold as a bill to eliminate fees for persons requesting stalking orders, but contained a huge anti-gun provision, was amended to remove the anti-gun language. If you are interested, the amendment can be seen here. Thanks to all who took […]

On March 5th we asked you to contact the House Judiciary Chairman and ask that he remove dangerous language from HB 2628. That […]

    03.12.15 Yesterday, Josephine County passed its pro-rights resolution 2-1. The opposition came from Commissioner Cherryl Walker who supports gun owner registration. Fortunately the other two commissioners were willing to take a strong stand in defense of the Second Amendment. Our congratulations to the people of Josephine County and our thanks to Commissioners Heck and Hare […]

    Deschutes Takes A Dive

    03.12.15 In the long and very successful battle for our rights, we have watched county after county stand with the citizens and make strong public statements defending our Second Amendment rights. There have been a few curious hold outs. Obviously Lane County is one of them. But even stranger is Deschutes County. Although many county residents […]

    Josephine County…

    03.10.15 Tomorrow, the Josephine County Commissioners will be discussing Resolution 2015-012 “In the Matter of Adopting A County Resolution on the Subject of Universal Background Checks for Firearms Purchases.” We have not seen the resolution but have reason to believe it will be a good one. (UPDATE, here is the resolution.) The Commission will meet at 5:30 PM […]

    Bill Expands Judges’ Power To Seize Firearms

    03.05.15 Today, the House Judiciary Committee will be hearing two bills of interest to gun owners, HB 2628 and HB 2915. HB 2915 allows a small tax credit for the purchase of a”qualifying gun safe.” As far as we can tell, this bill is mostly symbolic. HB 2628 is troublesome. It adds the following language […]

    Curry County And Tillamook County Pass 2nd Amendment Resolutions

    03.04.15 Today both Tillamook and Curry County passed pro 2nd Amendment resolutions. This was a great day for pro rights activists and more proof of the power of the grass roots. The lies the anti-gunners keep repeating that “87%” of Oregonians and “most gun owners” support further intrusions on their privacy and more attacks on their rights […]

    Where Are Our Sheriffs?

    03.27.15

    In the recent past, Oregon Sheriffs have taken a vocal and passionate stand in defense of the 2nd Amendment rights of the people who elected them. Now? With a tiny number of exceptions, like Sheriff Glenn Palmer of Grant County, who has proudly stood for gun rights, the sheriffs and the Sheriffs Association have been silent.

    The Sheriffs of Oregon are the last bastion of defense against the tyranny of the Portland controlled legislature, but despite promises to take a stand, they have been AWOL on the coming legislation to require that you beg for permission from the State Police before you can exercise your “right” to keep and bear arms.

    If you don’t think the failed background check system can hurt you, consider the email OFF received today from a gun dealer.

    In his message he said “I currently am the FFL licensee for my gun store. On 3-20-15 I purchased a Ruger 10/22 for a birthday present for my wife. Imagine my surprise when an employee of mine ran a background on me, the ffl holder, and a delay until May 1st was returned as a response. That’s a 41 day delay for someone licensed by the federal government to handle the sale and disposition of firearms. It is no wonder why I have simple transfers that are still pending from as early as the first of November 2014 in my files from people who have never committed a crime in their life. This should not only be a severe outrage to me, and those like me, but also to any who hold our system with even the slightest regard.”

    This kind of insane nonsense has to stop, and it has to stop here. Please contact the Oregon Sheriff’s Association and tell them you expect them to take a stand, now, to protect your rights.

    You can find contact info for your sheriff here.

    Please consider a message to the President of the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association, Jason Myers, asking him why he, and so many other sheriffs, have been silent on the latest attack on your rights and your privacy.

    Contact info for Sheriff Myers (jmyers@co.marion.or.us)

    Sample message:

    Dear Sheriff Myers,

    In the past, many Oregon Sheriffs have proudly stood in defense of the 2nd Amendment Rights of the people who elected them. Now, even though your own county, Marion, has joined over 20 other Oregon counties in opposition to more restrictions on our rights, the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association has been silent on the latest attack, SB 941. You knew this bill was coming. It was no secret. When are you, and the other sheriff’s going to stand up against this attack on my liberty and privacy?

    Yours,
