    These are all bills introduced JUST THIS YEAR to keep whittling away at our 2nd amendment rights. Some have already been beaten or died, but others still could use attention Some are actually in our favor! There is a handy comment section on each bill page to write a quick note to your legislator encouraging them to vote for continued freedom...or 'mostly free' freedom...;);):rolleyes::(
    Just 'cus I know ya'll are excited to DO something other than complain...;)o_O:p:D

    Little steps that can be done in just a few minutes a day that will help in the freedom fight. I stumbled across this page from the Gun Rights Coalition Facebook group. Pretty cool, I think! If everyone did this, we could stop a lot of tyranny in it's tracks!!

    Your right on Monica
    They are trying to rule by feelings not the constitution they have enough people fired up now and we cannot let up.
    Everyone has to do what they can to keep the pressure on everyone has to stay involved. E-mails , phone calls . written letters everyone has to do their part. No longer can we set back and say we will do it tomorrow to do that means one day lost.
    Join a group or do it on your own but get involved. Give them one more inch and you will loose more than a mile.
    Washington State has given to much with I-594 and you will be lucky to get any of that back and that happened because people thought it couldn't happen.
    Well guess what , it can , it did , and it will happen again if the people of Washington allow it.

    I like HB1433. Section 2.3.e and 2.6 (removal of).

    As new section 1 explains: In 1990, President William Jefferson 7 Clinton signed the gun-free school zones act, 18 U.S.C. Sec. 922(q), 8 to increase the safety of students, teachers, and staff.

    Therefor we should also remove the "commerce clause" from the above federal law. After all, every firearm, also the ones manufactured entirely inside our state and that have never been transported between states, are dangerous just the same.

    There are 22 counties in Oregon plus the town of Myrtle Creek that have sent resolutions to Salem saying they , and the people they represent do not want any more infringement on the second amendment.
    Do you think it will make a difference to the house and senate when it comes time to vote on the infringements they have written and are setting on. Prozanski , Birdick and Gelser are rabid anti gunners. Gelser took Betsy's seat so we have lost the one democrat that was pro firearm here in Oregon.
    We have a fight on our hands for sure.
