Petition to Repeal Oregon’s Gun Grab Bill

Innocent until proven guilty. The Oregon’s gun grab bill was signed into law by democrat governor Kate Brown. It allows a family or household member or even the local police to get an ex parte court order (meaning a person isn’t there to defend themselves) to confiscate legally owned guns or any “deadly weapon” on the suspicion the person might harm themselves or someone else. This unconstitutional law must be stopped.

How You can Help Stop Oregon’s Gun Grab Bill

You can stop this by heading to REPEAL719.com AND SIGN THE PETITION to repeal this unconstitutional bill. Once there, you can download a single-signer petition — just sign it and send it in. Or you can also download or a circulator petition, which has spaces for 10 additional signers. Be sure to follow the simple rules.

More than 60,000 signatures are needed. While the effort to repeal is currently on track, from past experience, we all know those in power will try to invalidate every signature they can. That means they will throw out perfectly valid signatures because they feel something might be wrong. That often translates to needing 10–20% more signatures than the minimum to compensate for government interference.

We often call Oregon “the Petri Dish” for the Left. If they can pass it here, they’ll try it somewhere else. We’re an experimental lab for Leftist policies.

This is especially true of the Second Amendment. But recently the attack has been ramped up. The focus of this week’s show is SB-719A, a gun confiscation bill that was passed out of the judiciary committee and on to the senate, where it is likely to pass — unless common sense Oregonians stop it by contacting their senators now. It is due for a vote this Monday, May 1st!

Oregon’s Gun Confiscation Bill: SB 719A

Sen. Brian Boquist, a Republican from Western Oregon, sponsored SB-868. But it met with such a huge public outcry they copied and pasted it into SB 719 (hence the “A”) in a process typically called “gut and stuff.”

SB 719A would create a so-called “Extreme Risk Protection Order” (ERPO) at the request of family member or household member—or even a law enforcement officer. All they need to do is claim the other person is a “risk” to themselves or others. Get this:

  • The order can be obtained ex parte, meaning the defendant can have their guns taken away without even being in court
  • The court order can be obtained without any allegations of criminal behavior
  • A person can have their rights taken away simply based on someone else’s “feelings” that the defendant might be a danger to themselves or another person—either now or in the “foreseeable future.”

The Show

We talk with David Keene, former president of the NRA and currently the Opinion Editor of the Washington Times about this terrible bill and how you can lose your rights with no due process.

Tune in to hear how “compassion” led a Republican senator to sponsor this bill and get it through committee. Tune in to hear how he was used by the anti-gun lobby. Tune in to hear how Oregon’s gun grab bill will allow a family or household member or even the local police officers to get a court order to confiscate your guns or any “deadly weapons”.

The Case of Mike Strickland

And then don’t miss an example of an Oregon court going way too far to punish a gun owner. Listen to hear why Mike Strickland, who never fired a shot, is facing more than 30 years of jail. We talk with Jayne Carroll, host of the Jayne Carroll Show on KUIK-1360am in Portland, about this shocking case — shocking in the sense of how far the politics of Portland have gone to suppress political views they disagree with.

(See the videos, below)

Of course, all of this makes perfect sense because by taking away our 2nd Amendment rights we also lose the ability to protect our 1st Amendment rights. What better way to carve away at our freedom of speech but to do it under the guise of “protecting us” by taking away guns from someone who might hurt someone in the “foreseeable future.” Yes, that is actual language from SB 719A.

Meanwhile, Oregon’s lawmakers are looking the other way, away from groups like Black Lives Matter who scream, yell, show up in masks, do millions in damage to property owners and businesses, shut down roads and highways, and create havoc for law-abiding citizens. But a gun owner is the one who is punished?

You’ll want to hear how easy it was to have Mike’s case go from a single misdemeanor all the way to 21 felony counts.  Don’t miss Jayne’s look at what is really going on and the assault the Far Left is having on Oregonian’s freedoms.

In the wake of the Umpqua Community College killings in Roseburg, Ore., there was a great deal of “politicizing” (thanks, “President” Obama) by the gun-control advocates, like Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and the one-woman-Democrat-clown-car, Debbie Wasserman Shultz.

But unfortunately, the shouting from the political Left was often matched or exceeded by the shouting from the political Right: “they” are coming to take your guns, this is purely a mental health issue, gun-free zones don’t work (okay, that one’s correct), and so on. Both sides trot out numbers and statistics to support their argument and pretty soon most people don’t know what to think or believe and so they retreat, psychologically, into their previously held position on guns, gun safety, crime, or gun control.

Unfortunately, all this politicizing does is to divide people into entrenched positions (of either anti-gun or pro-Second-Amendment) and does nothing to solve the problem.

Are there solutions to mass shootings? We wanted to know.

Whenever there are problems, the best way to solve it is to go to the people closest to the problems. And there is no group closer to this issue than law enforcement.
