    Today the Yamhill County Commission unanimously passed Resolution 011415.

    This resolution expresses the County's opposition to any expansion of Oregon's failed "background check" system.

    This was a great victory and a terrific first step to getting other counties to stand up to Portland and say "not here."

    We are grateful to all who came and voiced their support for the resolution. Oregonians traveled from as far away as Rogue River to express their approval. No one testified against it.

    Now we need to get other counties to step up. Yamhill has taken the lead. Where does your county stand?

    It's critical that each of us hold our county commissioners accountable. If the bullies from Portland try to control the entire state, it is the sheriffs and county commissioners who can stop them.

    We have just received the latest numbers from the Oregon State Police concerning their denials of firearms purchases. Once again they demonstrate that the entire system is a joke intended to do nothing more than harass the law abiding.

    In December of 2014, 197 persons were denied firearms purchases. Of those, the Oregon State Police claim that 139 were "prohibited persons", you know, bad guys who are breaking the law if they try to buy a gun. Of those 139, the number arrested and taken off the streets so they could not commit further mayhem was a whopping 3.

    Yes, you read that right. Three.

    Thanks again to everyone who took the time to write the Yamhill County Commissioners. Special thanks to everyone who took the time to come and testify, and of course, our thanks to the Commissioners for their willingness to stand up for the people they represent.
