For those who may not be aware, the Oregon Firearms Federation has been encouraging the 36 counties in Oregon to adopt pro firearms resolutions thereby sending a message to the legislators in Salem that the individual counties will not bow down to ANY additional anti Second Amendment legislation. So far, more than 50% of Oregon counties have come on board and done just that. Unfortunately, not all county commissioners are taking our rights and their oaths of office seriously. Their delay may very well cost all Oregunians some of their firearms freedoms.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE
All you have to do is select the county you live in, fill in your name and email address and click submit. Counties will be removed from the options as they step up and take the appropriate action. Doing this will email your County Commissioners the following letter:
Dear (your county) Commissioners,
My name is (your name) and I’m writing you with the utmost urgency. The longer you delay taking action, the more you contribute to trampling the rights of ALL Oregon residents. It’s time for you to take a stand on behalf of me and every other resident of (your county) to defend attacks on the very Constitutions you took an oath and swore to protect! YES, I said “Constitutions” as in BOTH of them.
According to ORS 294.615, you swore: “I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Oregon”
This includes the Second Amendment in the United States of America’s Bill of Rights as well as Article 1 Section 27 of Oregon’s Constitution which clearly states:
“Section 27. Right to bear arms; military subordinate to civil power. The people shall have the right to bear arms for the defence [sic] of themselves, and the State, but the Military shall be kept in strict subordination to the civil power.”
As a resident of (your county), I consider any delay in adopting a pro-gun resolution to be nothing more than a stall tactic intending to make sure the damage is done before you have to address it. I will not stand for this kind of shameless political maneuvering!
I strongly oppose any expansion of Oregon’s failed background check system and demand that you do the same by adopting a county resolution specifically stating this!
