Will Not Comply Rally At Oregon Capitol
On Saturday, May 30, Stewart Rhodes spoke at a “Will Not Comply” Rally on the steps of the Oregon State Capitol. The rally was a response to the passage of Senate Bill 941, which Democratic Gov. Kate Brown signed May 11.
The Rally started at midday, and was attended by several hundred people, including Oath Keepers, Heirs to Patrick Henry, and others.
In attendance was Tom Tharp, a 61-year-old retired pastor from northeast Portland who was passionate about his position.
“This is a gathering of like-minded gun owners who are more than upset about Senate Bill 941,” Tharp said. “We will not comply.”
Jeff Ford, of Oath Keepers, said, “It’s completely unconstitutional,” Ford said of the expanded background checks. “I’m against gun control completely. Our Second Amendment rights shall not be infringed upon.”
