Oregon Liberals File Gun Confiscation Ballot Measure

As the lying anti gun hysterical types try to tell us “Nobody is coming to take your guns away,” they file a ballot measure petition in Oregon that would do just that. The “Promote Public Safety for All Through the Reduction of Assault Weapons and Large Capacity Magazines” initiative has been filed with the Oregon Secretary of State’s office, and will require over 88,000 signatures in order to make it to the 2018 general election ballot. The chief petitioners are Walter John Knutson (aka WJ Mark Knutson), Michael Z. Cahana, and Alcena E. Boozer.
Some key parts of the text include defining what an “assault weapon” is:
(1 )(a) “Assault weapon” means any:
(A) Semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has at least one of the following:
(i) Any grip of the weapon, including a pistol grip, a thumbhole stock or any other stock, the use of which would allow an individual to grip the weapon, resulting in any finger on the trigger hand in addition to the trigger finger being directly below any portion of the action of the weapon when firing;
(B) Semiautomatic pistol, or any semiautomatic, centerfire or rimfire rifle with a fixed magazine, that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition;”
That would pretty much ban every single gun out there. This would include the legendary Ruger 10/22 rifle in .22 caliber; Every semi auto pistol, because it’s possible for someone to design a magazine to hold more than 10 rounds for even the smallest of pistols; And the classic Marlin Glenfield Model 60 .22, designed in 1959, which holds 14 rounds in a fixed tube magazine.
