    An avalanche/deluge/landslide of written testimony has been submitted for the Oregon Senate Judiciary Committee meeting tomorrow. Read it here https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2013R1/Committees/SJUD/2013-04-05-08-30/MeetingMaterials

    Samples

    and many many many more.

    I'm sure all the guys who demonstrated with AR-15's at the capitol and who have posted thousands or millions of words on this forum about their support for gun rights and how Obama is going to take our guns took the time and went through the trouble of submitting written testimony to counter-balance all the pro-gun control testimony submitted, right?

    Right? Hello?

    I let my voice be heard.In an email,of course,to let the monkeys at the capitol know that I am 100% against ANY gun control legislation.I do this weekly and three or four times this week alone.I will continue to do so until I can't type anymore.

    Yep. I told our senators that I hold supporters of 'gun free' zones as guilty for deaths of victims of violence for having denied the victims the alternative of self defense.

    I do support live fire training, but am concerned that even more costs discriminate against the less affluent.


    Update. I just found that they published my home address as I had included it in the comment. Not what I wanted.

    It's scary how many times you see "this will not stop gun violence, but it's a good start"

    If this is the start where is the end?

    They wonder why gun owners don't want to give a inch.

    I've read through a lot of them we have some representation. BTW why do I have to save a PDF before I can open it? What security setting is stopping me.

    Those are not emails.

    That is written testimony submitted for the Senate Judiciary committee being held tomorrow. They will discuss four gun control bills. Some citizens will testify in person before the committee. If you can't testify in person tomorrow the committee accepts written testimony, but it had to be in by noon today. It has been mentioned several times in this forum

    The testimony submitted to the committee - either in person or written - will have far more impact than all those emails that get ignored. The anti-gun people seem to know all about this and had a ton of supportive testimony submitted in writing https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2013R1/Committees/SJUD/2013-04-05-08-30/MeetingMaterials click on the page icons going down the left side of the web page. Apparently, most people here had no clue about it. Too busy preaching to the choir in the echo chamber here to do something that might make a difference. It looks like the Senate Judiciary committee is going to hear and read overwhelmingly pro-gun control testimony tomorrow.

    Yes.

    IMPORTANT! THE COMMITTEE HAS EXTENDED THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT WRITTEN TESTIMONY TO APRIL 8!

    It is very important that you tell the members of the committee your opinions of the bills. IT IS FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN EMAILING YOUR SENATOR OR REPRESENTATIVE. If the bills are killed in committee they are DEAD. If they are passed in committee they go to the full Senate for a vote.

    Write something up, then convert it to .pdf format. You can use PDFLite - PDF Viewer and ConverterPDFlite | Free PDF Reader and PDF Converter to convert a Microsoft Word document to .pdf. Then email your testimony in as an attachment to your email to annola.dejong@state.or.us

    Include the following in your email

    If you aren't sure what to write, read what others have written https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2013R1/Committees/SJUD/2013-04-05-08-30/MeetingMaterials

    Please, don't waste time doing anything else between now and April 8 if you care about stopping these bills.

    after reading about 40 of them, i have found its littered with people who only get their info from peirce morgan and diane frankenstein. this is looking so bad for my generation and there really is nothing i can do about it personally. i have done what i can to make my voice heard but its just not going to do anything im afraid.

    Saw this in the opening statement of the Agenda for tomorrow:

    "Individuals who are not able to testify at the hearing, may submit written testimony (electronically or hard copy) to the Committee by Monday April 8th, 2013, at 5PM."

    So I guess that might give some of us a second chance to do it right.
