    Oregonians under assualt AGAIN

    Seems like every other year we here in Orygun get new legislators that want to promote unicorns and rainbows by taking our 2nd amendment rights one law at a time. Most have heard but for those not into the local news Oregon is a democrat dominated government and they plan on several attacks against your 2nd amendment rights. While some may seem benign, I call each adding to the death of the 2nd by 1000 paper cuts. Each new little law takes away more of our rights until they no longer exist. below is a link to one of many bills being bandied about.

    Some of us have considered another avenue to counter attack so I would like some feedback on them. We (a few friends) propose that if every gun owner, their family and their friends can demonstrate a force of show by simple actions. We pick 2 days, say a Friday and a Wednesday where nobody buys gas. Mondays and Thursdays, nobody buys booze or 420. On Tuesdays and Saturdays nobody plays the lottery. This is a non sacrifice by any of us but it will show Salem politicians that we have a voice, we have some power and we are organized enough to wield it like sword to cut taxable revenue.

    Any ideas are welcome. We need to organize to stop these gun grabbers and preserve our rights.

    There is also a rally in Salem at the capital the 15th if you can make it.

    Doubt you could get away with it where you live, but in Indy a few years ago a couple of firearm laws were proposed. As Indiana is probably the most firearm friendly state in the union, regardless as to who does the study, it didn't take long for a full scale march on the state house by enough people to shut down the center of the city. The fact that virtually everyone had a rifle (mostly that evil black one) slug over their shoulder got the point across and legislation disappeared.

    And the funny thing, all those armed citizens running around the state capital, not a single shot was fired, nobody arrested, and sanity was restored to our legislature. Of course the beauty of having a constitution, the right to bear arms is legal, so walking around with freedom firearms slung over ones shoulder is perfectly legal.

    In Center Left State, is open carrying of long guns allowed?

    Have you looked into what fineswine and the rest have recently proposed? If it has a pistol grip, forward grip, accepts mags, has a threaded bbl, a number of other features, it's banned from sale, importation, transfer but owners will be allowed to "keep" what they have.

    We did that in 2013, 3000 of us on the courthouse steps including about 200 Gypsy Jokers bike club members. Tried again in 2015 and only had about 1000, the 15th we will try again, but the new attacks just keep coming.

    No matter what state you live in, the Dims will guarantee a relentless attack on the 2nd. Even in "gun friendly" states, they'll keep trying.

    Yep, Communists through and through. I despise the enemies of freedom. Any gun owner or Constitution backer who votes Democrap is a total idiot.

    From the link:
    The ban wouldn't apply to law enforcement officers or military members who need larger magazines for official duties.
    What do cops "need" larger magazines for? Why of course, for self defense when there may be more than one "bad guy" or a doped up bad guy who just won't go down after the first few shots.

    So, what that proposed bill is saying is "a cop's life is worth more than an ordinary citizen".

    If a person gets jumped by a drugged up gang of bad guys, well too bad... they only get 5 shots, then a free trip to the morgue.

    The reply to the proposed bill should be FUCK YOU - COME AND TAKE 'EM!
