Is this The Last Straw?  Here is one more reason for Eastern Oregon counties to partition themselves from the Left Coast: Oregon Gun Control Ballot Initiative Introduced ~ “Assault Weapon Reduction Act”.  This proposed new law would cast a very wide net.  Among other things, it would ban most semi-auto rifles and nearly any handgun that can accept a detachable magazine! It would also ban any magazine over 10 round capacity. If this horrible ballot measures passes on November 6th 2018, Oregonian gun owners would have just 53 days to move the banned guns and magazine out of state, to save them. Mind you, that will be in late fall and early winter. So what about any guns and magazines they own that are cached in frozen ground? Tough luck. Please help campaign to stop this draconian ballot measure.
