Tomorrow, as the chaos of Measure 114 continues to cripple gun stores, destroy Second Amendment rights, and confound buyers, dealers, and police, the Oregon State Police Firearms Background Check System will be… taking the day off.
There are over 20 THOUSAND people waiting for a response that the State Police are required, by law, to provide in 30 minutes.
As a result of this confusion and our pending lawsuit, we have been inundated with questions about firearms transfers and the current litigation.
Unfortunately, we cannot answer most of these questions. There are just too many unknowns.
And we are not alone. The State Police have no answers either.
We appreciate your patience as the fallout continues from the result of ignorant people voting for ballot measures they have not read and do not understand.
As we move ahead we want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to put the brakes on Measure 114.
Even as the mere threat of enactment of 114 is causing unimagined fear and concern about the end of businesses, the media and the promoters of 114 continue to lie nonstop about it. It is truly shameless.
But, in the midst of this madness, we want to take a minute to say a very sincere thank you.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and while we won’t be taking the day off, we will be giving thanks for all the countless supporters who have given so generously to help us fight this.
Dear Gun and Ammo manufacturers PICK A SIDE! Are you going to arm an increasingly tyrannical government deep state takeover seeking to diminish AMERICANS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS and intending to target and abuse your customers? Will you keep arming the states and agencies that unconstitutionally restrict your customers from buying your products? Will you keep arming the officers in states that intend to red flag your customers and seize their property purchased from you, without notice, hearing or due process? Will you compete to arm the new 87,000 gestapo (irs) agents seeking to plunder and eat out the substance of your customers…….and you? I have been a good customer. I have been a loyal customer. I am a law abiding citizen of the United States of America. I can purchase your products on the secondary market…..I don’t need to do business with you. But you need me. Most of the industry would not survive or exist on .gov contracts. We all know what “shall not be infringed” means and it
Evidence on how badly informed people are about guns and how that leads to support for gun control, Media bias after the Buffalo shooting, we were the statistical expert in a 9th Circuit win, Report on Concealed handguns saving police, and much more Crime Prevention Research Center People are poorly informed about the most basic facts in the gun control debate. The CPRC has funded a survey that finds the average, likely American voter mistakenly thinks that over 46% of violent crimes involve guns. The true figure is less than 8%. That isn't too surprising given that President Biden, public health researchers, and the media, violent crime is all about guns. Not surprisingly, those who believe that most violent crime involves guns are more likely to view gun control as the solution. Media bias after the mass public shooting in Buffalo continued. I have a piece at Townhall about how the news media falsely claims that mass public shooters are "right-wingers" when they are
06.16.2022 Things are getting crazy, and we are going to need your help. There is just no way around it. Once again, we are seeing a full court press on your gun rights. These assaults are both here in Oregon and nationally. And some of it is just plain weird. US Senator Jeff Merkley has sent out an email that calls for both a ban on modern rifles and age restrictions on their purchase. He has referred to “ gun caused violence. ” And, after promising a long list of new restrictions on your rights, he called them “only a first step. ” Every attack on your rights and property for the last 50 years has always been a “first step.” No matter how much of our liberty is stolen, it’s never enough. It’s always just the beginning. Always just …the “first step.” As you know, the most recent efforts to further eliminate your rights are coming from both parties, as the Republicans in Washington are working with the Democrats to craft new gun control from a “framework” they have agreed to.
