    I'm not into facebook, so I can't open the link, but I can tell you, first hand, that if a program is in any way connected with the Portland City Council or athe Multnomah County board, it is ipso facto, anti gun.

    its just a picture of a gun broken in half and it says "Say no to guns: Stop the killing" thats why im a little irked at it. they are the typical media fed people who think everyone who has a gun will kill some one else.

    Methinks you make too much of this. They aren't promoting any kind of legislation. Just trying to tell the banger kids to stop offing each other. If they jump on the band wagon for some kind of anti 2A legislation, that's another story.

    I know they aren't pushing it or trying to make guns illegal but im just thinking why they are teaching kids to fear guns instead of respect them.

    I understand what you're saying, but it's not their job to teach kids to respect guns. If a kids parents didn't teach them proper gun safety then I WANT them to be a little fearful of guns rather than just pick thing up and point it at their friend and say "look what I got".

    That being said, the Multnomah County Youth Commission would probably benefit from taking advantage of something like the Eddy Eagle Program for the very young kids, although I think there's a snowballs chance in hades of that happening. For the "banger" age kids, unfortunately we're probably too late.

    You answered your own question, because they're ignorant, they don't respect guns, they fear them............

    Do we really want to teach bangers to shoot straight?

    If you really think about it, we do have an interest in teaching the bangers to shoot straight as it is mostly each other they are shooting at. Teach them how to hit center mass so they don't sail one thru a wall and hit some kid doing their homework. :D
