Referendum Seeks to Repeal Oregon’s Due Process-Gutting Gun Ban

Referendum Seeks to Repeal Oregon’s Due Process-Gutting Gun Ban
This is not supposed to happen in America and it’s in direct conflict with the oath everyone behind it took. (Repeal719.com)

“I know that many in Oregon are VERY upset that SB 719 passed,” Republican State Representative Bill Post announced Thursday. “Therefore a group of us are working to repeal it via the ballot. We need your help.”

SB 719? That’s a new edict that specifies:

“A law enforcement officer or a family or household member of a person may file a petition requesting that the court issue an extreme risk protection order enjoining the person from having in the person’s custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing or receiving, or attempting to purchase or receive, a deadly weapon.”

Without even being charged with a crime, let alone convicted… Think of the potential incentives for abuse. And then think of the expense it would take for someone falsely accused to fight allegations, and the amount of “sympathy” or even basic justice to expect from an overwhelmingly “progressive” Oregon “justice” system.

Think of how “guilty until proven innocent” stands against everything right and just. And Constitutional.

How is Boquist’s disarmament bill consistent with his oath? (Brian Boquist/Facebook)

Another maddening thing is the bill was sponsored by “Republican” Sen. Brian Boquist, who colluded with the most militant Democrat gun-grabbers in the legislature, turning his back on gun-owning constituents who previously had supported his bids for political power. His response to the suicide of his stepson was to infringe on the rights of everybody else. Decent people can sympathize with tragedy, but that’s not an excuse to use that to infringe on their rights. His response to criticism for his turning coat was to accuse representatives of the National Rifle Association and Oregon Firearms Federation of not caring “about veterans blowing their brains out.

“As you know, the Governor has signed the Boquist/Burdick gun confiscation bill,” OFF told supporters in a Saturday alert. “What you might not know is how few of our friends in law enforcement are even aware of it. When the courts begin ordering the seizure of guns from people who have committed no crime, things are going to get real ugly in Oregon. So it’s time to go to work.”

Oregon gun owners can do that by visiting Repeal719.com and signing the petition as well as circulating petitions and collecting signatures from other Oregon voters, being mindful of the rules and the law to ensure signatures are valid. There’s also a need for volunteers to help verify signatures and for donations to the Repeal 719 PAC.

If you’re not from Oregon, your help is still welcome and needed. While you won’t be able to sign the petition, you can still support your brothers and sisters in arms there financially, by spreading the word and by promoting the group’s social media awareness and advocacy campaign. If Oregon gun-grabbers can get away with this there, it will confirm to gun-grabbers everywhere that it works. They’ll be trying it again wherever the right blood dance opportunity shows that a well financed billionaire/media Astroturf campaign pays off — including where you live.

  1. I am in the next state up, WA. it will be here next. I hate war, but we are there.Only other choice is Trump stops it now and he must be reminded of the fatal consequences, or the west coast will be gone. And then from the east coast to the west how long will it take to meet in the middle and drive the golden stake? They have us figured out, out maneuvered and out gunned. They are well organized,well funded and can know our every move before we do it. I hate to sound so negative, but are only hope now is Jesus Christ. Call on Him and make Him our commander and chief.This is what happens when a country forgets him.

    1. Charlie with all due respect this is NOT about God it is about the distortions and bad acts of men, who pretend to be our leaders, but in fact represent illegal aliens and others not our own citizens. We must help ourselves and one of the biggest mistakes people have made , especially Christians, is not being proactive and waiting for God to intervene on our behalf. This is not about God at all, this is all about “we the people” determining what happens and what we will allow as our boundaries under our laws or what we used to call our laws ?

      I am certainly not anti God in any way. But I also realize he is expecting us to determine what is wrong and what is right and watching to see what choices we define and make for our selves. I am certain if we do nothing except pray he will only have disdain for our choices. We must act for ourselves and then we may get some help accordingly ? We are expected to be proactive in our own defense other wise we are just accepting a false and wrong destiny forced on us if we do nothing.

      1. Praying to God Almighty is now, has always been, and always will be the first step in any human endeavor. But, after we rise from our knees in prayer, we must also accept the fact that We the People are the tools God uses to answer our prayers. Faith without good works is nothing, good works without faith is nothing. Pray, then rise and become one of God’s tools in stopping the evil in this country before the evil overwhelms us.

    2. I agree that we need to repent and turn back to the Almighty, and His Son. Lord knows, I think about this personally every day. So, I’m not attempting to criticize your spiritual point. It certainly is fundamental and valid to reclaiming America. Nevertheless, I constantly read comments on blogs or you tube by Christians that because He’s coming soon, or because our nation is in rebellion against God, that HIS People along with many fine, liberty-loving, patriotic Americans should just sit back, or bend over and take it. No sir. We are commanded to resist evil. And believe you me, this agenda is PURE EVIL, It’s source is literally out of the mind of devils, and derived from the deepest pits of hell. We must resist even if it means fighting in the physical realm We must. Others have before us, and who are we to piss away everything that they sacrificed with their own blood? Will we not all stand united before it’s too late for we, our families, and communities? Most assuredly, we will hang separate if we do not now respond. These relentless tyrants mean to utterly eradicate us from the face of the earth by any and every means effective. And there are plenty of willing traitors {like the BLM mercenaries at Bundy Ranch) who will be willing to enforce the agenda at the point of a weapon for a steady pay check. It very likely WILL take a series of Battle of Athens to recover the significant losses we have allowed to transpire over several generations. No body wants it. I absolutely do not. I value my peace and relative security. But I sure as shootin’ don’t want my children to need to pay the ultimate price because we were too lazy or cowardice to deal with it while we still had half a chance to succeed. Does any sane person want war? NO. As many on this thread know, war is hell. But are we really willing to trade off the rest of our liberties for a little temporary peace and safety? The enemy is coming for each of us. You can be sure of that. It’s just a matter of time. What will we do before we are removed as a threat to their globalist agenda? Jesus is coming soon. Keep praying. Yet, we must act in accordance with what we know is right and just. I’m not clamoring for civil war. But war is literally at our doorstep whether we like it or not. Jesus will not save us from this reality, no more than he did our forefathers or the brave men and women who stood against the communists at the Chinese T. Square in 1989. The difference between us and them is that we have a means to defend our selves presently. They did not. We cannot allow them to finish taking our means of individual defense from us and our children. Let’s unite before it’s too late.

  2. In the 80’s, I moved to NY. When confronted with their gun laws, I researched the claims of the ‘gun-ban’ people. According to FBI statistics at the time, guns were used in about 1/3 of violent crime. Hands and feet were about 1/3 and the other 1/3 was whatever seemed to be available: knives, bricks, pipes, etc.
    Perhaps people should start demanding sanction against the 2/3rds that aren’t guns – “custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing or receiving, or attempting to purchase or receive, a deadly weapon.” According to FBI statistics, ‘deadly weapon’ can be hands, feet, bricks, pipes. Start turning in all masons and plumbers. Then add anyone with hands and feet.

  3. I’m not trying to sound like someone on the lunatic Fringe but people need to read the Unabomber’s manifesto, or at least the first 30 paragraphs.
    He described the leftist ideology and mind frame. This bill is just another step in the progressive plan to make us all slaves to the state, where of course the University professors, the Bloomberg Billionaires, and Pseudo Intellectual politicians like Obama, Reid and Pelosi will instruct us all on how we are to live.
    That this bill passed shows how far down the rabbit hole we have gone.
    Main problem is “I” don’t see a peaceful, reasoned solution

  4. Repeal yet another law…then again and again…

    The real remedy to turncoat lying politicians is to re organized your States Constitutional Militia…ALL 50 States need to do this to stop the political communist take over of this country from the inside…imho Semper Fi

  5. Now that is pure evidence that the Democrats are fully and totally against the Constitution. Forget due process. Forget innocent until proven guilty. This MINORITY REPORT all over. Guilty without proof at the word of some angry LEO or family member. I just saw a relative of a church goer who was beaten so badly that he may now die. And with THIS kind of law, that same violent person could have made sure that his victim never had a chance to defend himself.
    Folks, IF this goes and someone dies, it will be time for MAJOR money lawsuits against every member of that legislative body that passed this travesty

  6. Oregon is one-third of the group of 3 states that make up the “LEFT” coast. All 3 states are extreme anti-Constitution cesspools and “progressive” governments/populations. I don’t care what state I reside in, I can guarantee you NOBODY will ever confiscate my guns for any reason, at least not until I run out of ammunition.

  7. Living in Socialfornia, I am one of the three West Coast states that are included in this article or soon to be included that is. I am shocked California didn’t think of this first. As of right now I just found out, the socialists in the capitol are putting together a new handgun band for handguns smaller than 7″. This would have a serious affect on CCW owners, so you can see where they are going with this. I am in the process of applying for my CCW since the country and the world for that matter is turning into the “depravity of man”. I have notice many far left states are moving into the socialism stance faster than others, attempting to disarm the constitutional law abiding citizens who work for a living. They want only to support the freeloading persons that do not have to work, receive an EBT card once a month, and go down to the State Capitol to make changes to law. My wife has seen this first hand at the capitol, many non and un-American groups filling the front seats of the capitol to have their referendom passed (Sharia Law ring a bell), because the working class people cannot be there to counter them. She observed these America destroyers filling the the house completely by the bus loads to win their voice to fulfill their agenda. She stated there were many other groups of America destroyers as well. The West Coast in my opinion will be completely turned in five years at this rate. I would like to move to Idaho or even Montana, but alas, you need money and a new job to do that. So stuck we are.
    The quiet winds of war are upon us sooner than we think, the sheeple are glued to sports and the polluted MSM. I may not be a veteran (which I so humbly regret) but I have the heart to protect this God fearing country and constitution. Many a veteran I have spoken with have mistook me for one of them.
    I have ancestors who fought in the War of 1776, the Civil War, and both World Wars. The love of my country and fighting spirit is in me, always has. There are more of us than they think…

    1. Don’t worry about getting your permit to carry concealed. I graduated from high school back in the 60s in southern commiefornia (it was still California then) and immediately joined the USAF to avoid the draft. I didn’t live in commiefornia permanently after that, except for one stretch when I was stationed at 15th AF HQ at March AFB. I ALWAYS carried concealed even back then. On the rare occasion that I have visited that state since then, I have still ALWAYS carried concealed and I never even asked about any permits. God and the Constitution are my permit and the only one I need. Carry Concealed in Commiefornia and stay safe.

  8. You cannot correct stupidity by more stupidity. A referendum is a complete waste of time and effort in a state full of liberal pukes like Oregon. The entire left coast of the USA is nothing but a cesspool comprised of ignorant “progressives” and illegal aliens. The true solution is to ask law enforcement exactly how many of their members are they willing to sacrifice when they come knocking down doors to break their oaths and illegally confiscate firearms?
