‘Most Dangerous’ Oregon Gun Bill Creates New Threat to Freedom

While the eyes of most liberty activists are focused on the unfolding powder keg story at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, political machinations in the capital of Salem on the other side of the state threaten the rights of all Oregon gun owners. If allowed to succeed, look for it to be used as a template in other states as a further step toward the goal of citizen disarmament.

“We have received a preliminary copy of one of the most dangerous pieces of anti-gun legislation we have ever seen,” Oregon Firearms Federation alerted its members. “This bill eviscerates due process and turns Oregon into a Soviet style collection of secret snitches!

“Basically if someone makes a claim that you are, in their opinion, experiencing a ‘mental health emergency’ you lose your right to buy a firearm,” the alert explained. “Included in the list of people who can make that accusation against you are such mental health ‘experts’ as a college history professor, your boss, or an aunt you have not seen in 20 years!

“Once the accusation has been made, it’s your problem to get your rights restored,” OFF elaborated. “You are not even allowed to know who made the accusation and you are not informed that your rights have been taken away unless you attempt a firearms purchase! You are not allowed to know how long the ‘hold’ on your rights is! The person who made the accusation is immune from any liability for making the accusation that takes away your rights.”

In an update, OFF acknowledged the draft bill had been worked on and some changes had been added, including a redefinition of “family member” and “vague language about a misdemeanor penalty for ‘knowingly’ making a false report …

“Included in the list of people who can make a secret accusation against you are school personnel who have ‘had direct contact with you,’” OFF continued.  “It does not say ‘recent’ direct contact. They could have had ‘direct contact’ with you 10 years ago.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee formally introduced the bill, LC 250, last Tuesday.

“The Committee approved the bill on a 1 to 3 vote,” OFF told its members in a further update. “All Democrats voted yes…”

Considering the composition of the state legislature, with a 16–14 majority in the Senate and a 34–26 majority in the House, along with a collectivist governor who signed a bill mandating a de facto form of “universal” gun registration by forbidding private sales, it’s clear that serious threats in Oregon by overreaching government aren’t limited to an impasse between the feds and rancher interests.

  1. you people in Oregon need to have a RECALL on this Oregon State Senator Floyd Prozanski, this is about a crooked bill i have ever seen the DSS in S.C. will not release anyones name who report you either …get your head out your rear and recall these people before its to late

    1. The problem is the LOONEY LIBERALS in Oregon where with this guy! They are Obama cronies! We are outnumbered!

    2. This is idiotic.You can not make a bill that prevents the accused from knowing whom accused you and it stand as a Constitutional code.The person that submitted this bill should consistently be watched for further transgression against the US constitution and all that he has put his hand on should be null and void ,per the US Constitution and furthermore this person and all those whom voted for this Bill should be expelled from office.

    3. I live in Oregon, and I can tell you, this is one of the most horrible, invasive, illegal, unconstitutional “laws” anyone has come up with lately. I don’t know about the rest of Oregon, but I for one, think several things need to happen. First, the “new” governor needs to be run out of office, as she simply took the place of Kitzhaber, who was run out of office on a scandal. (go figure) Second, the over-reaching liberals in Salem, need to be re-called or simply voted out of office. The “west side” of Oregon is the most liberal part of this state, which, unfortunately also holds the majority of the population. That is why Oregon has so many “stupid and irrational” laws and law makers. Oregon’s governor wants to “allow” illegal aliens to come to Oregon, when the reality is, that the Patriots of Oregon will probably run them out of the country. WE will not succumb to the illegal actions of State government. AND, as far as the folks down in Harney County, they need to stand down, remove “everyone” that has anything to do with their plight, and leave. They have made their point, and it is time to restore the tranquility of such a beautiful place, with so many really great people. When one of them stole a pickup and got arrested, just shows that things are a bit shaky. That should have “never” happened, if their goal was to just make a point. I spoke to our Sheriff, who went down to help patrol. He told me that he felt the “true” problem is not so much the Bundy bunch, but ALL the other people that came in “support”. They seem to be the ones causing problems. In an effort to relieve that situation, the Bundy’s should thank them for their support, and ask them all to leave, along with themselves. This could turn into a very bad situation, if the lookey-loos continue with their actions.

    1. This Oregon law and the California are unconstitutional/illegal simply because it violates “due process”, correct? What’s the next step after one of these illegal laws gets passed? A lawsuit? What is California doing to repeal their illegal law? Thanks

      1. An illegal law is no law and therefore null and void. Such a law can be nullified according to the Tenth Amendment, which other states have done on other occasions when the federal gov. has overstepped its bounds. The states simply ignore the illegal mandate and life goes on. In this case it would mean the citizens would ignore the illegal mandate and take their chances. If I lived in such a state that blatantly usurped its authority and no recourse was to be had, I’d leave that state and never enter it again. I’d locate a state that was more in keeping with the US Constitution and settle there. But the reasonable thing to do is to fight such an illegal mandate, hopefully via the Supreme Court.

    2. No, you don’t. Oregon’s proposed is far more invasive and problematic. It is unconstitutional, unlike yours, and will never fly but it will be a fly in the ointment until the SCOTUS shoots it down for failing the due process and equal rights clauses

  2. This bill declares that an “emergency” exists, in order that the bill take effect immediately upon passage. Apparently they need offer no evidence of any kind that there actually is an “emergency”, they can just declare it so. Yeah, that makes sense.

    This bill allows any “health care provider” to report a person as a danger. This will include massage therapists, acupuncturists, probably aroma therapists and a whole host of other people completely incompetent to make any kind of valid mental health assessment of an individual.

    The categories of allowable “reporters” is so broad, and includes “professions” that obviously have no training in mental health evaluations (including teachers), the assumption apparently being that “When you see a person who is a danger, you know it”. Why then limit the reporters to “professionals” with no mental-health-assessment training? Why not just write a bill that allows anyone at all to anonymously deny someone their rights? (Why would the check out clerk at Walmart be any less competent to determine a dangerous person than an acupuncturist?) At least that would be more honest. As if these people have any concern about honesty.

  3. “Debating” these Tyrannical Progs once they have a “majority” is a total waste of time in a Demoncracy.
    They Know Exactly what they are doing, and why. It’s not about eliminating Guns, it’s all about eliminating
    YOU.

  4. When are COMMEN SENSE going to kick in, Politicians are overblowing The “Gun Problem ” . Enforce the Laws on the books, Do the crime do the time, Not plea bargained out do do it again, The guns are not the problem! The lack of education on what a Semi-Automatic is, on the Second Amendment’s intent and STOP allowing the Media blow things out of proportion for ratings!

    1. Unfortunately, enforcing the laws already on the book includes all state, federal and municipal tyrannies. We wouldn’t say “Enforce existing Intolerable Acts.”

      “Shall not be infringed” means just that.

      REPEAL existing gun laws.

      1. The only way to stop this nonsense is to get out and vote the liberals out in the next election. For those that don’t like whichever conservative candidate is selected, they still need to get out and vote or our next president will likely by Hil-liar-y or Bernie the Socialist Sanders. Either one of these people will ensure our Supreme Court is filled with liberals who will completely dismantle our Constitution and undermine our freedoms. It’s up to We The People to ensure this doesn’t happen. Encourage all your friends, relatives, neighbors, and anyone else that will listen that the next president must be a conservative or our country as we now know it will cease to exist.

        1. the problem is in the two party system, and lobbying, it is time to get rid of it all, and we the people need to demand that any bill passed applies not only to the people of America, but to congress, senate, and EVERY member of PUBLIC SERVICE. no subsidies, no bailouts, no comprehensive reimbursement, NO SNAKE OIL ways out of it. you pass it you pay too. see what they pass then?

    2. There is no common sense.there is only an attempt to destroy the US constitution any means possible because these folks belong to other secret clubs that have their own agenda.

  5. Use the new law to your favor, drop a dime on all gov reps and law enforcement, flood the channels till they get buried in a mt of paperwork .

    1. Oh, I like the way you think! Davids post directly above yours as well. Any chance you guys are interested in elected office? I’d vote for ya’ll.

  6. does the carpet munching f@QQot b!tch governor of our glorious spandex metrosexual three country state of ore-GONE have armed security…. all state/ fed armed security names must be published NOW; all persons knowing their names must now come forth to name these security guards as mentally unstable and have their weapons confiscated at once !!!

  7. Are there any oath keepers in Portland. We need to make contact and organize. Oregon is a blue democratic state, things will begin to move quickly here.

  8. Any ‘law’ bill, resolution, directive etc. that is passed in violation of either state or the Constitution of the united States is in fact a violation of said constitutions and American citizens are DUTY BOUND to disobey said violations. Our RIGHTS come from God not man. The Government’s ONE MAIN job is to PROTECT not violate those rights.

  9. And here I thought SB941 was supposed to be the end all of gun laws.Only problem with the latest gun law is that it will have an EMERGENCY CLAUSE attached and go before a rules committee and maybe have a dog and pony show and both houses vote it in.
    Not a vote by the people.

  10. This crap comes from Portland-Salem-Eugene, that’s where 3/4s of the people in the state live, on a tiny fraction of the land. The rest of the state, the rest of us is Oregon.

    They don’t come out here much.

  11. Everyone needs to read this report. In February, 1982 the 97th Congress tried to find out if they could restrict guns. After the investigation they did a Congressional Report. In this report they found out that they could not touch the Second Amendment. In fact Senator Joe Biden was part of this investigation. So was Grassley, Kennedy, Dole,, Spector, Byrd and Hatch among others. In fact Hatch wrote the Preface and here is part of what he wrote on what the Senators including Biden and himself determined.

    Part of what Senator Hatch wrote “Immediately upon assuming chairmanship of the Subcommittee on the Constitution, I sponsored the report which follows as an effort to study, rather than ignore, the history of the controversy over the right to keep and bear arms. Utilizing the research capabilities of the Subcommittee on the Constitution, the resources of the Library of Congress, and the assistance of constitutional scholars such as Mary Kaaren Jolly, Steven Halbrook, and David T. Hardy, the subcommittee has managed to uncover information on the right to keep and bear arms which documents quite clearly its status as a major individual right of American citizens. We did not guess at the purpose of the British 1689 Declaration of Rights; we located the Journals of the House of Commons and private notes of the Declaration’s sponsors, now dead for two centuries. We did not make suppositions as to colonial interpretations of that
    Declaration’s right to keep arms; we examined colonial newspapers which discussed it. We did not speculate as to the intent of the framers of the second amendment; we examined James Madison’s drafts for it, his handwritten
    outlines of speeches upon the Bill of Rights, and discussions of the second amendment by early scholars who were personal friends of Madison, Jefferson, and Washington while these still lived. What the Subcommittee on the
    Constitution uncovered was clear — and long lost — proof that the second amendment to our Constitution was intended as an individual right of the American citizen to keep and carry arms in a peaceful manner, for protection
    of himself, his family, and his freedoms. The summary of our research and findings form the first portion of this report.”

    Here is the link to the Congressional Report and many people will be surprised to find that Congress found out just what is our Second Amendment that it was given to us by our Creator and not Man……

  12. There are constant unconstitutional acts made daily via presidential executive orders, congressional legislation, supreme court rulings and the like at the comparable state levels. Unfortunately so few see how this has diminished their freedoms so it will just have to get so bad that the people will rise up. It may be that we will have to do that unarmed unless the people take action when they actually come to your door. But we are having our gun rights boiled away as this is being done in effect with this kind of action. It is hard to believe that this won’t be “interpreted” administratively as meaning you have no rights to a gun if your right to buy one has been removed. It seems likely it will mean police coming to get your guns as part of this “legislation”.

    I have personal experience with knowing how there really is only due process if the system wants to allow that, but since this is only a small percentage of us I can’t get this through to people. Now some are starting to see what I was talking about and how it would spread to ultimately involve everyone. Remember this: “Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

    This and other things can’t be considered anything but something that has to be fixed by a revamp of all three prongs of our government. We used to be able to look to the supreme court somewhat as the last resort to uphold the constitution, but they no longer do. Even we the people that are the final arbitrer of the constitution are nullified at times by the supreme court over our votes.

  13. Photo…”Guy not happy about being fingered by Obama, goes along with it anyways” Lets write another Bill, another false ideology people “can get behind” Americans are a conditioned collective walking themselves to the slaughterhouse.

  14. They are violating the 6th Amendment. The State of Oregon is funded and corrupted by the Rockefeller Foundation, from the governor, state legislators, attorneys general, mayors to the sheriffs. Rockefeller is the American arm of the Rothschilds, who control Europe. This is not a conspiracy and can be found on the internet, which I searched to figure out why Sheriff Ward was such a devious traitor. The two main goals of these evil NWO globalists is to confiscate our guns and write an entirely new Constitution. Their goal is 2020, so that the UN Agenda 21 can be completely implemented. The players are George Soros, Eric Holder, Cass Sunstein, the Marxist College Professors, the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, of which obama was a member. See Oregon State Treasury – Rockefeller Foundation and http://www.oregon.gov/treasury/Pages/index.aspx and Publius Huldah-Open Letter To State Legislators: The Other Side of the Article V Convention Issue. Despite the title, it exposes the the players and their goals in this tyranny. GOD BLESS OUR BRAVE MILITIAS. We Will Not Comply..

  15. This article so sad and the comments bring more sadness. Not one person mentions or hints to the foundation of government. Not even a remote reference to it. All people here seem to be content being out smarted in position to be on the defensive side of things. And former military people too! You should know better! Not one single reference to the foundation of government points that you never understood the problem you wish to fix. Because if you understood the foundation of government – it would be all you would want to talk about. What does that say about all of you? Trying to fix something you never understood to begin with? All necessary tools were placed into our hands by the Founders if and when the people stop sucking their thumb and stop embracing positions that will never be productive. Principles are the answer. These belong to the people. They always are before form which are constitutions, amendments, laws, statutes, regulations, rules, orders, proclamations, etc. all are examples of form. Do not argue form! It is principles that have to be used to write form. You shall know the tree by its fruit. Which principles is Grasty using? In the US there are 5 to choose from: the foundation of government. The Founders got into thought crimes for rogue servants. They knew the government would end up in the tank but it takes thought to do that destruction with. Do you not know thought without a selected principle is impossible? Look at Article III Section 3 last six words. Knowing the foundation of government is only half the battle. Access to the Grand Jury and not the whore common law grand jury crap. The properly constituted Grand Jury belongs to the people and they could appear with information to that body before it was illegally commandeered. Information about principles used by a rogue servant. Not about form which belongs to the servants. The Principles belong to the people. This will be sufficient to peacefully place the tyrant on the defensive side of things but don’t stop the advance. Put things on the Burns election ballot and campaign very hard for whatever you do for the people. The people will respond in a way you will enjoy. Guard against fixed elections. I caught that happening in my small town. You are now on the offense and rogue servants on the defense. Any vet will know what that means.

  16. The Oregon laws pertaining to guns should have no effect on anyone. Just ignore the laws since they are unlawful, immoral, unconstitutional POS. As for all the comments above, I just have one thing to say. You all are just sitting around whining and complaining as usual; when are you going to use your ACTION to put a stop to this un-American BS instead of your complaining? The time for our ACTION has long since passed.

  17. Repealing is not the only option…removal of all citizen employed government workers can simply be removed…any man or woman trying to make a law that violates our rights are now targets. ANY politician or judge or officer of the so called law…we are coming for your asses…our rights are now over your dead bodies. Those that side with tyrants will die with them…my rights are not for you to dictate. July 4, 2017.

  18. This Prozanski idiot reminds me of WWII; either people were so paranoid (and evil) that they’d turn their fellow citizens in to the Nazis, or they were so dumb as to believe that praying at the railroad station was going to somehow save them from having to get on the cattle cars.

    Just when you think that enough Constitutional light is being shed on the issues to bring ALL of us historically ore up to speed, some leftard slithers onto the legislative scene, completely oblivious that he is being used as a simple tool; an ignorant facilitator of an agenda he can’t even begin to grasp.After shaking hands with Odickwad, Prozanski no doubt hopped in his silver gray Prius or Volvo. Whenever these socialist weenies hear NWO, TPP, NAFTA, and Codex, all they can assimilate is the tune, Kumbaya.

  19. Great Bill will force a revolution. This fool who introduced this insane bill needs to be committed to a MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY.. Oregon you are becoming more like the communist republic of Kalifornia daily.

  20. I recently read ” The Gulag Archipelago”. It is way too long for most people that live on 30 second sond bites and one hour TV dramas. Sad, really. It shows EXACTLY what is going on right now. People ratted out their neighbors, a lot of times out of spite or jealousy and those people were hauled away never to be seen again.

  21. It is clear that Democrats are controlled by Atheist Communists. In every nation where they have dis-armed citizens they have murdered millions. It has never failed. Jewish Atheist Communism has killed 100 million innocent, purposely dis-armed, citizens in the past 100 years. These Oregon leaders are Communist and anti-American. They MUST be “dealt” with conclusively for the safety of our great nation.

  22. Check your state Constitution and law for the “Oath of Office”.
    THE SEPARATION OF POWERS
    “There can be no liberty where the legislative and executive powers are united in the same person.”
    –Charles-Louis de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu1
    “The accumulation of all power, legislative, executive, and judiciary in the same hands…may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
    –James Madison, Federalist 46
    “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
    –U.S. Constitution, Art. I, § 1
    Alexander Hamilton, Federalist, no. 27, 174—75
    Alexander Hamilton explains the relevant issue on government being BOUND by Oath or Affirmation. Article 6, Clause 3.
    25 Dec. 1787
    The plan reported by the Convention, by extending the authority of the federal head to the individual citizens of the several States, will enable the government to employ the ordinary magistracy of each in the execution of its laws. It is easy to perceive that this will tend to destroy, in the common apprehension, all distinction between the sources from which they might proceed; and will give the Federal Government the same advantage for securing a due obedience to its authority, which is enjoyed by the government of each State; in addition to the influence on public opinion, which will result from the important consideration of its having power to call to its assistance and support the resources of the whole Union. It merits particular attention in this place, that the laws of the confederacy, as to the enumerated and legitimate objects of its jurisdiction, will become the SUPREME LAW of the land; to the observance of which, all officers legislative, executive and judicial in each State, will be bound by the sanctity of an oath. Thus the Legislatures, Courts and Magistrates of the respective members will be incorporated into the operations of the national government, as far as its just and constitutional authority extends; and will be rendered auxiliary to the enforcement of its laws. Any man, who will pursue by his own reflections the consequences of this situation, will perceive that there is good ground to calculate upon a regular and peaceable execution of the laws of the Union; if its powers are administered with a common share of prudence. If we will arbitrarily suppose the contrary, we may deduce any inferences we please from the supposition; for it is certainly possible, by an injudicious exercise of the authorities of the best government, that ever was or ever can be instituted, to provoke and precipitate the people into the wildest excesses. But though the adversaries of the proposed constitution should presume that the national rulers would be insensible to the motives of public good, or to the obligations of duty; I would still ask them, how the interests of ambition, or the views of encroachment, can be promoted by such a conduct?
    That being said, is “Gross Violation of Oath of Office” a Crime? YES! The Oath or Affermation is a Constitutional requirement:
    “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
    — U.S. Constitution, Article VI, clause 3
    Violating Oath of Office is a Federal Crime
    I thought it a good topic for discussion especially since violating the oath is codified as a violation of federal law and executive order.

    The oath taken by both houses of Congress reads,

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God

    Congressional Oath of Office

    It is apparent that the section of the oath that seems almost daily violated by politicians is “I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without reservation or purpose of evasion;”

    Below is the most detailed listing of codes covering the subject of congressional oath and penalties for violation, this would apply to the President also even though he takes the Constitutional Oath.

    Federal law regulating oath of office by government officials is divided into four parts along with an executive order which further defines the law for purposes of enforcement. 5 U.S.C. 3331, provides the text of the actual oath of office members of Congress are required to take before assuming office. 5 U.S.C. 3333 requires members of Congress sign an affidavit that they have taken the oath of office required by 5 U.S.C. 3331 and have not or will not violate that oath of office during their tenure of office as defined by the third part of the law, 5 U.S.C. 7311 which explicitly makes it a federal criminal offense (and a violation of oath of office) for anyone employed in the United States Government (including members of Congress) to “advocate the overthrow of our constitutional form of government”. The fourth federal law, 18 U.S.C. 1918 provides penalties for violation of oath office described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 which include: (1) removal from office and; (2) confinement or a fine.

    The definition of “advocate” is further specified in Executive Order 10450 which for the purposes of enforcement supplements 5 U.S.C. 7311. One provision of Executive Order 10450 specifies it is a violation of 5 U.S.C. 7311 for any person taking the oath of office to advocate “the alteration … of the form of the government of the United States by unconstitutional means.” Our form of government is defined by the Constitution of the United States. It can only be “altered” by constitutional amendment. Thus, according to Executive Order 10450 (and therefore 5 U.S. 7311) any act taken by government officials who have taken the oath of office prescribed by 5 U.S.C. 3331which alters the form of government other by amendment, is a criminal violation of the 5 U.S.C. 7311.
    Violating Oath
    The subject I am bringing to the table is “why do the American people allow their representatives to break the oath of office (a federal crime) and not hold them accountable, including the President?

    This should be a non-partisan subject simply due to the fact this has been going on for long decades and both parties are guilty according to the law.

    I have myself watched a slow and steady deterioration of personal freedom going on fifty years or more and the accumulation is about to reach a tipping point where those hard fought rights become meaningless.

    The scales could be tipped back somewhat if the public had awareness that the oath has teeth and voiced expectation that it be taken seriously. We must make the Oath of Office a RELAVENT Issue.
    Gary De Capua

  23. This CAN be stopped by the citizens of Oregon!! THEY must NOT let it happen. Time for them to raise their voices!! Also there is such a thing as “recall” Use it, damnit!!!
