Our Far Left government in Oregon, a state dominated by the far left for several decades, increasingly chips away at citizen rights.
Not long ago, Gov. Kate Brown and friends passed a law allowing for gun confiscation by order of a judge based on a rumor without a hearing for the defendant, without due process, based on a presumption of guilt.
The Governor has stated often she considers Oregon a laboratory for experiments in progressive policy making. It is clear the goal is gun confiscation in a state already famous for legalizing pot, decriminalizing hard drugs, assisted suicide, public funding of abortion and the persecution of Christians unwilling to violate conscience as demanded by the state promoting same sex marriage.
‘Progressives’ like Gov. Brown have made it very clear: your constitutional rights will be infringed or suspended whenever they come up against the policy dictates of the Left.
If the Governor of Oregon was actually serious about security, she would put professional security officers in the schools instead playing politics with student safety.
As written at The Western Journal,”Oregon Becomes First State To Pass New Gun Control Law After Parkland Shooting“:
The Oregon legislature approved further limits to residents’ ability to purchase firearms Thursday, becoming the only state to pass gun control legislation in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Feb. 14.
The bill, introduced before the murders of 17 Florida high schoolers, will prohibit anyone convicted of stalking or domestic abuse or anyone with a restraining order from purchasing a firearm or ammunition, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
Oregon’s Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, lobbied heavily for the bill and intends to sign the measure into law.
