In fairness there should be an equal thread for our THREE TIME Governor John Kitzhaber. Kitzhaber has said he is a "big supporter of the Second Amendment" and owns a bolt-action .22 hunting rifle that belonged to his grandfather. That comes up a lot when he's speaking about gun rights. Three terms (wow!), and I have to admit, we still are doing pretty good on gun rights compared to some other States. Is that because of him or despite of? Has he been trying to curtail the 2nd Amendment or the gun rights in the Oregon Constitution or is he neutral? Has he ever graduated beyond owning the bolt action .22 rifle or is he really a "big supporter of the Second Amendment"?
