Oregon Counties Declare Sanctuary Status Against Gun Control

Oregon Counties Declare Sanctuary Status Against Gun Control

This article comes from Breitbart.com

by AWR Hawkins

Four counties in the state of Oregon have declared sanctuary status, saying they will not enforce the universal background checks which Democrats heaved upon the state in 2015.
The law requires all gun sales–retail or private–to be conducted via the auspices of a Federal Firearms License holder (FFL).

When the law took effect in August 2015 it immediately placed a strain on those charged with enforcing it and a number of sheriffs in the state quickly made known that it would not be a priority for their departments. The Statesman Journal quoted Polk County Sheriff Bob Wolfe saying, “Right now, I don’t know if I even have enough people to enforce it. We’ll have to evaluate it on a case by case basis until we can get some staff on and figure out if we even have the resources to really deal with it.”

KTVZ reports that since then “four counties have passed a measure known as the Second Amendment Preservation ordinance.” This ordinance declares that the sheriffs of the four counties are not obligated to enforce the gun control measure. And “commissioners in Malheur, Union and Lake counties” have all heard proposals for the same ordinance during recent weeks.

Gun control advocate Penny Okamoto says counties are not allowed to take such action because of Oregon’s preemption law. Because of this, she says the ordinance barring enforcement of gun control is “largely very symbolic.”

But Coos County’s Rob Taylor–a chief proponent of Second Amendment Preservation ordinances–begs to differ. He wants Oregon to have “sanctuary counties” where the Second Amendment is free from gun control enforcement in much the same way that the state “has become a sanctuary state for immigration.”

  1. So here’s the rub; Because the governor just signed a bill that can hold up gun sales indefinitely by the State Police, they still can’t get guns in those counties. Tried to explain this to my brother to no avail.

    It is so time to split the states up!

    1. It’s time to rid this country of lawless criminals in power. Why run and hide in a new state…the evil will just catch up. The left is organized, the right is fractured, just bitching and whining and crying in their beer. Nice guys will lose this battle because they are nice.

      1. Well, get it started then WGP. Write up the blueprint, and get folk to follow if you’ve got the answers. withholding your “Action Plan” is no solution. Details, Please!

  2. “…four counties have passed a measure known as the Second Amendment Preservation ordinance.” This ordinance declares that the sheriffs of the four counties are not obligated to enforce the gun control measure. And “commissioners in Malheur, Union and Lake counties” have all heard proposals for the same ordinance during recent weeks.”

    I wonder how many of those ‘2A Preservation’ counties still demand a permit for concealed carry?

  3. Maybe we citizens can declare ourselves “sanctuary persons” and refuse to abide by certain laws. Wouldn’t that be something. If it’s good enough for our states, counties and cities, it should be good enough for each individual!

  4. These counties need to join with the Northern California counties which are trying to form Jefferson. This could be the nucleus to drive a wedge deep into the left coast.

    1. Totally agree. Clear back when Colorado gained conscience and recalled some of their elected politicians, I mentioned to my father that, “Colorado and WA/OR have a lot in common. There’s a high chance that if Civil War starts it could be at the East/West divide of OR/WA…….Time will tell.

  5. Whats the big deal? Seems to me that if the cites can declare that they will harbor illegals in total defiance of the law, then counties should be able to disregard rules that violate the constitution which IS the law. Sound fair…??
    Oops…I forgot…Liberals are hypocrites. My bad.

  6. Fantastic! However, lets see what the sheriff does when the feds come in to enforce federal law. As much as I like sheriffs I have not seen any standing up against feds where its really important, such as protecting the freedom of citizens.
