    This bulletin cites: The facts clearly prove that background checks work and they do same lives. Cease cited their supporters at last weeks Senate Judiciary Committee meeting while stating the other side presented conspiracy theories and what if-scenarios. Cease asserts "Oregon lawmakers can not continue to give criminals access to guns".

    Cease desires "legislators do what's right and not swayed by conspiracy rhetoric". Cease cites 78% of Oregonians support gun background checks for gun purchases because we know it is an important step in stemming the tide of gun violence. The author must be unbalanced in logic because Chicago has super tuff gun laws and is one of, if not the highest gun crime rates in the country.

    Please go to battle against these loons and contact you respective Senator and this Committee members. Thanks.

    The hearing is tomorrow at 8 AM at HR 343--bring lots of quarters for parking.

    Is this open to the public? If so, viewing only, or public input?

    I think you need to be there early to sing up. I think I am correct but please check out the procedures. L

    This is the "work session" on the bill. Of course it's open to the public. No testimony will be taken. This is where the committee votes on it. Assuming they pass it, it then goes to the desk of the Senate President, Peter Courney. He can decide if and when it gets a formal floor vote. They say they have the votes to pass it, but if we keep the pressure on, that will change. If the state Senate passes it, then it goes to the state House, where it will most likely be assigned to the House judiciary committee. The chairman of that committee is Jeff Barker, who has a high rating from OFF. He can choose whether or not to bring it up in his committee, where the hearing and "work session" process starts all over again.

    And in a month-long legislative session, it will go how far?????? Good practice for us. And then we have 6 months of "testimony" and "work-session" till November to work on, when its our turn to vote. :rockstar:
