UPDATED COMBINED DONATION FUND COUNT: $5250 Combined Donation Totals from both OFF, CalGuns, and reported Snail Mail donations is amounting to around $5250 out of $12,000 needed. Keep it up, folks! Alert from Oregon Firearms Federation For myself, I've spoken to Sheriff Palmer multiple times over the last two months over multiple different issues. He is a true believer in the 2nd amendment, the right to carry, and the right to armed self defense. Where other counties in Oregon flat out refuse to issue licenses, require business reasons, and so on, Sheriff Palmer has said flat out that "Self Defense" is an "other legitimate demonstrated need". When I say "He is Oregon's most pro-gun and pro-self defense sheriff", I am not saying so lightly. Grant County is a county of about 8500 people. Given that law enforcement and county budgets in general is getting squeezed, Sheriff Palmer cannot afford the proper LiveScan equipment, as his department been having issues with ink fingerprinting and doesn't want to give OSP a reason to reject the applications based on ink smudges and so on, as their reject rate is going higher as an encouragement to upgrade. Remote LiveScan equipment is pretty expensive, but the best way to get the licenses processed quickly and without requiring the return trip. Any help you folks can send Sheriff Palmer on getting the remote LiveScan equipment, so he can get to the gun shows in the adjoining states to Oregon (WA, ID, NV, CA) and process your non-resident applications, would be greatly appreciated. He is also considering going to the Collectors West Gun Show in Portland Expo Center to take applications from SW Washington residents too (Since Multnomah County seems to be getting overwhelmed).
