See update 04.09.15 The Prozanski/Hoyle gun grab will soon be voted on in the Oregon Senate. Until the gavel falls, don't stop hammering them. If it should pass there, prepare to hammer the House. In spite of all the duplicitous rhetoric from the anti-rights crowd about "reasonable and common sense" gun laws, they have proven themselves to be not only unreasonable, but out and out irrational. When Senator Kim Thatcher proposed an alternative that would actually help keep guns out of the hands of criminals, without invading the privacy of legitimate gun owners, it was dismissed with no discussion. So much for "reasonable." Representative Bill Post has also proposed an alternative that would protect law abiding gun owners. His bill, HB 3528 protects the privacy of the law abiding and even requires immediate records destruction after a transfer is approved, if a person conducts a voluntary background check. Let's see if the House Democrats who are looking for "reasonable" measures will even discuss this bill. House Democrat Leader Val Hoyle, who has hidden her anti-gun agenda in the past, is a sponsor of this attack on your rights. If she does not insist that Post's bill be heard and passed, she will have proven just how dangerous a hypocrite she is. We have updated our automailer to reflect the changing complexion of the battle. Please make use of it, and thanks for your tireless activism.
