Oregon Gun Ban Petition Meets MASS RESISTANCE

Oregon Gun Ban Petition Meets MASS RESISTANCE

This article comes from the Gateway Pundit

by Brock Simmons

The Oregon gun confiscation ballot initiative, petition #43, has passed the first hurdle with the Oregon Secretary of State. After gathering 3400 signatures during the weekend of the “March For Our Lives” astroturf photo op “protests”, not even 1000 of the signatures were valid. In Oregon, 1000 “sponsorship” signatures are required for a proposed ballot initiative. They eventually got more signatures and turned them in on April 17th. After the signatures were verified, they were given a “draft ballot title”.  In Oregon, during the “draft ballot title” phase, any elector (registered voter) can comment on the ballot title and argue for or against the title for a bevy of different reasons.

And boy did Oregon gun owners comment. BIGLY.

The Secretary Of State’s office reports that over 1000 comments were submitted contesting the title and the initiative itself. Anyone who submitted a comment has standing to appeal the title in the state Supreme Court. The comments are public record on the SOS website, and the .pdf document contains a whopping 1573 pages. The Secretary Of State says they never get more than a dozen comments about a ballot initiative, making this a historic turnout.

  1. It’s not difficult to predict where this is going. Oregon gun owners will vote down the ballot initiative; the gun grabbers will appeal to the Oregon Supreme Court which will uphold the confiscation against the wishes of the majority or Oregon residents who will in turn tell the Oregon Supreme Court to pound sand. A handful of Oregon gun owners will turn in their guns, and the Oregon law enforcement agencies won’t have enough resources (or courage) to go door to door and confiscate the rest. The gun grabbers will lick their wounds and attempt to come up with a different “common sense” strategy — rinse, repeat.

  2. This is an Initiative Petition in Oregon. If the backers get the ballot title certified, they start collecting signatures [80,000 plus needed by mid July] to get it on the Nov ballot. If it passes it becomes law effective 1/1/2019. I live in Oregon. I believe it has a better than even chance of passing. Being that I am also a retired LEO, I will become a un-indicted felon if it does pass. That does not sit well with me.
    There will likely be challenges to the Oregon Supreme Court [& perhaps SCOTUS] but I have little hope they will rule in favor of our Oregon [or U.S.] Constitutional right to keep and bear arms…

    1. Sheepdog, I feel for you, man. My wife and I drove to Seattle a couple years ago and went on an Alaska cruise to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Afterwards we drove south through Washington and across much of your beautiful state to visit a friend in Colorado. I can’t imagine losing that to a bunch of freedom-hating Leftists.

      1. This has been a leftist controlled state for many years now and it gets worse every year. As California goes, so goes the Northwest.

    2. “I believe it has a better than even chance of passing. Being that I am also a retired LEO, I will become a un-indicted felon if it does pass.”

      No, IF it passes, they cannot make what was legal a crime, remember that the US Constitution is the SUPREME LAW of this nation that ALL legislation MUST be in Pursuance thereof. That would be color of law, pretend law, like so many others are. Yes, there will be dumbed down, or even knowingly treasonous LE’s who will “just follow orders” and “just do their jobs” (for some others – “just do their jobs” and more). That does NOT make it LAWFUL, it makes the actions taken to enforce it *terrorism, and quite possibly Treason, like so many others LE’s enforce in all states – think SWAT teams, NSA, TSA, etc. Not one thing LAWFUL about their action here in the USA under our constitutional republic, but their actions would be/are “lawful” in China, etc today.

      LE’s are being used against the American people, and their Oath requires that their allegiance go to the US Constitution, not to any person of any rank, nor to any governmental Office. If they knew the Bill of Rights at the very least most of their actions would be lawful if they upheld them. But, treason and *terrorism comes easier with a healthy paycheck.. What I find disgusting is that they would sell out our nation so cheaply. But then, so do those who serve within our governments. (‘treason’ (Section 2385) and ‘misprision of treason’ (Section 2382).)

      *Section 802 (Title 18), “domestic terrorism” is defined as involving “acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;” which “appear to be intended–to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (or) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion”.

      As an ex LEO you should also be aware that the only crimes assigned to the federal government in the Constitution for law enforcement purposes are Treason, Piracy, Counterfeiting, and International law violations.

      Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878): “To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm … is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.”

      Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859): “The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the “high powers” delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.’ A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power.”

      Daniel Webster: “We may be tossed upon an ocean where we can see no land – nor, perhaps, the sun or stars. But there is a chart and a compass for us to study, to consult, and to obey. That chart is the Constitution.”

  3. The jerks take over the big cities which then control the rest of the state. They pass junk laws, make everything illegal, win the court decisions, make everyone a felon, steal our wealth. Too stupid to recognize their hatred for others freedom and the consequences that are fast approaching. I think more counties need to claim sovereignty from the state and have a constitutional sheriff backed by militia. Many counties could easily survive without any state and federal money. Send that message across the bows of tyranny.

    Put up signs on all private property that it is sovereign. Post your land patents.

    ONLY THE COUNTY SHERIFF MAY ENTER THIS PRIVATE LAND TO EXECUTE A VALID 1789 A.D. LAW OF THE LAND COMMON-LAW FELONY, FOURTH AMENDMENT “SEARCH WARRANT” AND/OR “SEIZURE WARRANT.” A LAW OF THE SEA ADMINISTRATIVE INSPECTION WARRANT, ARREST WARRANT, WARRANT OF ARREST, OR BENCH WARRANT DOES NOT, AND WILL NOT QUALIFY.
    THIS PRIVATE LAND IS SOVEREIGN LAND FOREVER PROTECTED BY THE SUPREMACY CLAUSE OF THE CONSTITUTION FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, OF WHICH YOU SWORE AN “OATH OF OFFICE,” TO UPHOLD AND DEFEND, ALONG WITH ITS RELATED UNITED STATES TREATY AND LAND PATENT LAWS.
