Both Oregon and Washington have the initiative process. How could we theoretically avail ourselves of this process to pre-empt these perpetual attempts to curtail gun rights? One thought I have is to enact legislation that makes legislators personally liable for statutory damages for even attempting to curtail the firearms rights of the citizenry under the color of authority. For instance, in Oregon, if a piece of legislation is introduced with an aim to impair the rights of the people under Article One, Section 27 of the Oregon Constitution, legislative immunity is barred as a defense and the proposed Act shall be prima facie evidence of an intent to violate the constitutionally protected rights of the people. The author and/or co-sponsors of the bill in question shall be strictly liable in court of law for statutory damages of $100,000 per person per incident, without limitation. A repeat offense under this statute shall be tried as a Class C Felony. Or A petition to amend ORS 166.005 "Treason" (1) A person commits the crime of treason if the person levies war against the State of Oregon or adheres to its enemies, giving them aid and comfort; or (A) The person, in an official legislative capacity, or via an initiative petition, attempts to pass legislation with the aim of impairing the civil rights of the people of the state. (2) No person shall be convicted of treason under Section 1 unless upon the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act or upon confession in open court. (A) For the purposes of Section 1(A), legislative or parliamentary immunity shall not be considered a valid affirmative defense to a charge of treason. (3) A person convicted of treason under Section 1 shall be punished by imprisonment for life without possibility of parole. A person convicted of treason under Section 1A shall be punished by a minimum ten year prison sentence and a fine not to exceed $100,000.00, or the equivalent of such sum, adjusted biennially for inflation. (4) If the Attorney General fails to criminally prosecute persons suspected of treason under Section 1(A) within 365 days of an alleged incident of legislative treason, private individuals shall have standing to sue allegedly treasonous persons in civil court for a minimum $100,000.00 presumed statutory damages, or the equivalent said minimum amount adjusted for inflation on a biennial basis.
