A Slight Shift Towards Balance
Despite Republicans regaining some ground, we are very far away from any semblance of “balance” in the Oregon Capital. While some Democratic lawmakers side with OGO in opposing new gun laws, many others ran on a platform of extreme gun control. These misguided policies, funded by out-of-state billionaires, WILL be back.
From raising the purchase age from 18 to 21, to banning certain kinds of rifles, limiting magazine capacity, and requiring storage that makes self-defense impossible, the anti-gun folks are nothing if not creative in their endeavors to end responsible gun ownership in Oregon.
They have the votes. It will come down to what kind of arm twisting occurs with Democratic moderates—and any breakaway Republicans—as the politics of session unfold.
OGO will be there to analyze the politics, engage strategically, and do everything in our power to preserve our way of life and the Constitutional liberties we hold dear.
