    The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution cements citizens’ rights to own firearms.

    The amendment also has been at the center of heated public debate in recent years as mass shootings have prompted a wave of gun control proposals in state legislatures.


    Now, the Lane County commissioners plan to jump into the debate on gun rights, albeit symbolically.

    Commissioners are expected to spend 30 minutes at their regular board meeting Tuesday discussing a proposed resolution backing Second Amendment rights.

    “Lane County strongly supports the right of the people to keep and bear arms as stated in the Constitutions of the United States of America, and Oregon … and vigorously opposes any state or federal law that unconstitutionally restricts these rights,” the resolution’s draft reads in part.

    The item was placed on the agenda at Commissioner Jay Bozievich’s request, Lane County spokeswoman Anne Marie Levis said. He was prompted by the Oregon Legislature’s recent passage of a gun control law, she said.

    Senate Bill 941 requires background checks on private gun sales between a buyer and seller, unless the transaction is between relatives.

    Under previous state law, background checks were required only for purchases from a firearms dealer.

    The resolution wouldn’t change any county policies, Levis said. But she said the county discussion will focus on “unfunded mandates,” inasmuch as local law enforcement, including the Lane County Sheriff’s Office, will enforce the state’s expanded law.

    Among other complaints, critics of SB 941 say it unfairly puts the burden on local governments to ensure that background checks are done, and to cite people who fail to comply.

    A handful of sheriffs across the state, mostly in rural counties, have said that for that reason they will not enforce the new law.

    Lane County Commissioners to Discuss Second Amendment Resolution

    If you live in Lane County or travel to Lane County please contact the Lane County Commissioners.

    The Lane County Commissioners will spend part of tomorrow's regular board meeting dissussing a resolution to support the right of citizens to bear arms.

    The proposed resolution was added to the agenda by Lane County Commissioner Jay Bozievich in response to the passage of SB 941, the Oregon Firearms Safety Act, which requires background checks for almost all gun sales.

    Heller and McDonald) and will save lives of Oregonians.
    Tuesday, June 2, 9:00 a.m.
    Harris Hall, Public Service Building
    125 E. Eighth Avenue
    To follow HACSA and Board of Health meetings
    Commissioner Bozievich's resolution would not change any policies or laws in the county. Lane County spokeswoman Anne Marie Levis said the discussion would include complaints about:

    • "unfunded mandates,"
    • a perceived "burden" to the local government, and
    • the few sheriffs who have stated they will not enforce the Oregon Firearms Safety Act.
    The Oregon State Police perform the background checks and charge a $10 fee so the law is not "unfunded" as some claim.

    The background checks are performed by the Oregon State Police (OSP), not local law enforcement. If a prohibited person attempts to purchase a gun and is denied by the OSP, it is the duty of local law enforcement to investigate the crime that has occurred. That is not a burden—that is the duty of law enforcement.

    The sheriffs who claim they will not support the Oregon Firearms Safety Act might be confused about their duties and the law. Sheriffs do not make law, they enforce law. Background checks help deter criminals from buying guns. If a criminal buys a gun without a check and kills someone, will these sheriffs not arrest the person who illegally provided a gun to that killer?

    And all we wanted was to be left alone.
    The law abiding are being used as a whipping post because they feel something has to be done and we are the only ones that at least listen to the laws.
    Criminals and felons are laughing as they go to the black market to get their firearms and these idiots know it but..........it's for the children. Hogwash.

    Maybe this is part of a master plan:
    1. Control health care
    2. Increase poverty to control the masses and the uneducated
    3.Increase debt to increase taxes and increase poverty
    4. Increase gun control and maximize a police state
    5. Control welfare, lives, food and housing
    6.Change education of children of what they read and learn to change the mind set
    7. Remove the belief in God
    8. Class warfare--divide people by the wealthy and poor--increase tax of the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    And then you have a new Social State and new country.

    tkdguy how true there doing all you said but what they haven't been doing is giving the cops more money so they can follow up on new firearms laws they keep passing so in essence the po po's don't have the funding to follow up.
    There showing their stupidity by saying it won't be a burden on cops to chase down a butt load of new felons because of their stupid laws.
    That's just how smart they are more laws and no money to enforce the new laws.
