Oregon Group Looks To Pass Gun Ban On November Ballot

Remember, they don’t want to ban guns or take away your rights, they just want to make it harder for criminals to get guns

Group approves wording for proposed gun control measure in Oregon

The group working to ban some semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines in Oregon is taking another step forward.

The Lift Every Voice campaign, backed by faith groups, said Wednesday it approves of how the Secretary of State would word measure 43 on the November ballot.

The group, which includes volunteers from across the state, must collect 120,000 signatures by the deadline next month.

Along with the ban, ballot measure 43 would make existing owners of those guns register with the state and pass a criminal background check–or face criminal prosecution.

Well, that’s weird. It looks like this is aimed at law abiding citizens, most of whom already had a background check to purchase the rifles

Critics of Measure 43 argue gun owners already go through background checks, and say the measure wouldn’t target criminals using the banned weapons.

Many also see the proposed ballot measure as taking away the second amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

Funny how the majority of the gun grabbers measures target the law abiding, rather than criminals.

A legal challenge to the ballot measure has already been filed with the Oregon Supreme court regarding the wording of the title, because the actual intention of the bill is much, much broader than the title states. Have a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds? You must register it with the state and get a background check again. I wonder who’s going to have to pay for that?

    Although most assault weapon owners do not shoot up schools, the majority of mass shootings with AR-15 style rifles are committed by “the law abiding”.

    Do you really believe that the 2nd Amendment protects your right to any handheld firearm available?
    Are you OK with the current “ban” (effectively) on fully automatic weapons or do you think those restrictions are unconstitutional? If so, why? Or do you think that a 15 yr old boy should be able to purchase a machine gun without a background check?

    We suspect most gun nutz are very selective in their outrage. They oppose policies that affect them.

      Last I checked, all but one of the mass shooters obtained and possessed those guns illegally. Definitely NOT “law abiding citizens”.

        The nignorant does have a problem with using the correct terms in his little rants.

      Last I looked, Nikolaus Cruz was on Zippy’s list of bad actors the school was supposed to ignore.

      Your Messiah does it again.

      And, no, it’s the Lefties who are selective in their outrage. And which we are we talking about?
