07.22.15 When Kate Brown slithered into the Governor's office in the wake of the disgraced John Kitzhaber, she stated the gun control was going to be one of her top priorities. Brown has followed through with that promise signing into law the worst attack on gun rights in Oregon history, SB 941. Of course, while she and other radical leftists in our legislature continue to focus on destroying our rights, Oregon continues to be at the bottom of almost all metrics. We are at the bottom of the barrel in employment, education, taxes, and business opportunities. But Brown has sunk even lower than we expected. Yesterday, Brown, letting no crisis go to waste, sent out a press release stating that, at the "request" of Barrack Obama, she was ordering state flags to be flown at half staff "in honor of the victims of the Chattanooga shootings." It is pathetic that our Governor did not order this on her own, instead waiting for the "request" of a President who responds immediately when a criminal is killed by police but is AWOL when American servicemen die. It is outrageous that she refers to these killings as "shootings" instead of murders. But Brown could not resist using this act of war to promote her anti-gun jihad. In the release, Brown says "It is becoming all too frequent that we mourn lives lost to gun violence within the borders of our country" Not "terrorism." Not murderous attacks on disarmed US Military personnel. "Gun violence," as if a rifle drove itself to two separate locations and gunned down innocent people on its own. Brown's disgraceful exploitation of the deaths of our servicemen is yet another example of the extreme agenda of the anti-gun Democrats in power in Oregon. It is shameful and unacceptable. Please consider letting Brown know how you feel about her actions. Email and sample message follow: Governor.firstname.lastname@example.org ______________________________________________________________ Governor Brown, Your exploitation of the deaths of US Servicemen in Chattanooga to promote your anti-gun agenda is disgraceful and embarrassing. Why did it take an order from Obama for you to request that our state flags be flown at half staff? Why have you not taken steps to ensure the safety of recruiters and other military personnel in Oregon? And how dare you blame this vicious act of war on "gun violence." Would you have called the Boston Marathon bombing an act of "pressure cooker violence?" Your actions in this case are an embarrassment to all Oregonians and a slap in the face of the men and women who serve in our armed forces. You should be ashamed of yourself.
