    I thought I'd just start a new thread since the bill is a new chapter.

    So SB 941 just got assigned to the House Committee on Rules. What a boring committee name, btw.

    For what it's worth, there are 5 D's on the committee compared to 4 R's. Here's the committee page:

    https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1/Committees/HRULES/Overview

    There hasn't been a public hearing scheduled yet, but I'm sure there will be shortly. On that page, you can click on the little expander icons next to each date to see when the bill is scheduled. Maybe this committee will allow more folks to actually testify vs cutting them off.

    Or... I guess here's the bill page itself. It'll show when the hearing is scheduled under "Scheduled Events."

    Oh, and everyone says you should contact your Senator and Representative. And you should. But if you can't make it to the hearing to testify in person, you can at least submit written testimony to the Committee specifically. For this particular Committee, emails should go to: hrules.exhibits@state.or.us

    It should have gone to the House Judiciary Committee, but they sent it to Rules in order to fast track it - thus avoiding the opposition of pro-gun Judiciary Committee Chair Jeff Barker.

    Anyone know the actual rules behind what committee it gets assigned to? Why would it go to Rules vs Judiciary or vice versa? Is there a lawsuit that can be filed about improper routing or something?

    What gets me about all these new laws is they pass then they can get checked on if they are constitutional or not. IS that kinda backasswards? should they not be checked against the constitution BEFORE they become law?

    The fact that a bunch of turds from other states are buying laws makes me sick.

    I received my card today.
    I called the number and politely expressed myself.
    The guy on the other end candidly said "you know, she sponsored SB941"
    I said yes I did and am disappointed in her choosing to do so.
    Said I thought well of her when her response to the Clackamas Town shooting was to push for a tax credit for anyone buying a gun safe. Said "you know mandatory registration is next" He said that's not so.
    I reminded him Prozanski said so in a public speech.
    Thanked him for his ear, gave him my name and city.
    Will write an email to Fagan along the same lines.

    I am an NRA life member, citizen of Oregon. That's what the NRA did, gave me a suggested action.
    I am doing whatever I can think to do, including driving to Salem.
    That said, This deal was filed as an emergency, no citizen vote allowed, Supermajority of socialists.
    My State Senator is against this bill, but in the minority. My State Rep? ....

    The efforts opposing this bill and likely the recall efforts appear to be getting some attention. I saw some of Bloomberg's money being spent last night in the form of and ad pushing SB 941 on KATU. I did my best to keep from puking and think I heard "loophole" and "children" about 85 times. I feel like my TV has been violated and I don't enjoy watching it as much.

    They are worried now if they are resorting to commercial ads to get/keep public support. Time to double down on our side - they have DEEP out of state pockets to fund this crap.
