Oregon AG Ellen Rosenblum: Working hard against the Second Amendment

Oregon working double-time to make sure there are several initiatives on the November ballot to ban “assault weapons.”

From KATU: Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum filed a draft ballot title earlier this month for an initiative petition that would ban assault weapons and large capacity magazines.

The draft ballot title (Initiative Petition 2018-43), which was filed April 24, would ban those weapons and magazines except for military/law enforcement purposes. Rosenblum aims to have the initiative placed on the November ballot.

“Assault weapons include certain semiautomatic rifles or pistols with a detachable magazine; pistol or rifles with a fixed magazine holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition; certain semiautomatic shotguns. Large capacity magazine is ammunition feeding device with capacity of more than 10 rounds,” the ballot says.

If passed, the law would take effect Jan. 1, 2019. Residents who already own those weapons could keep them, pending a criminal background check. The public has until May 8 to comment on the draft.

The draft ballot is posted on the Office of the Secretary of State web site, located here.

Here’s the full (vague) petition summary:

“Measure criminalizes possession or transfer of “assault weapons” (defined)/”large capacity magazines” (defined) except for military/law enforcement purposes, or persons authorized by State Police after criminal background check. Otherwise possession or transfer is a Class B felony. Within 120 days, persons lawfully owning such weapons or magazines must remove from Oregon, lawfully sell, surrender to law enforcement, render inoperable, or register items with State Police. Applies to inherited items. Bars moving covered items into Oregon. Assault weapons include certain semiautomatic rifles or pistols with a detachable magazine; pistol or rifles with a fixed magazine holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition; certain semiautomatic shotguns. Large capacity magazine is ammunition feeding device with capacity of more than ten rounds. Effective January 1, 2019. Other provisions.”

    It’s this type of horseshit that makes it so easy to despise liberals.

    • palcau ioan . . . . Unfortunately, the Progressives have had a strangle hold on the entire left coast, including Oregon, for several decades.

      I am glad that I am 71 years old, and hopefully I will not have too many more years to have to endure this crap.

      Oregon is a beautiful state, but good Heavens, I rather doubt that the way things are, that we will be able to throw off the yolk of these oppressive masters any time soon. Our schools pump out class after class of little Progressives who carry on this absurd mind set.

  4. No doubt about it, Oregon is always on the cutting edge. (The cutting edge of insanity.)

    If I am not mistaken, please correct me if I am wrong, the name
    “Rosenblum” I believe is Jewish. Are those who are of the Jewish persuasion afraid that the goyim may wish to rise up at some point in time? Hence, they need to put restrictive laws in place, to keep us goyim in “our place.”

    I can tell you, it gets rather tedious to continuously be inundated with law after law that restricts the freedom of otherwise peaceful people. Even though this may not apply particularly to me, it just gets to be way over the top between all the edicts that the City of Portland issues, and then the edicts that our counties lay out, and now the State also wants to trounce on us.

    For goodness sakes, we have not had that many cases of gun carnage in our state. Yes we did have a goof ball shooter out at Clackamas Town Center Mall, who thankfully was taken down by a good citizen who had a concealed carry permit.

    This same carnage could just as well be perpetrated by evil doers carrying machetes. Frankly, I become mentally weary by the on-going efforts of those who wish to control us, via their efforts to pass law, after law, after law.

    It is little wonder that those who live in Oregon, stager under the sheer weight of massive taxes to pay for all the dillweeds in office, who have personal crusades to “save us from ourselves.” I rather think that the majority of these same folks desire to “make names for themselves,” in order that they clime the ladder of success, and improve their earning potential by seeking higher office. . . . by coming up through the ranks, to eventually lead the state as a whole. Who knows, the next stop would be to seek office on a Federal level.

    DCG . . . . Bless you for continually bringing us excellent articles. I just wish that “Oregon” would keep a lower profile, so that we did not pop up quite so often on the radar.

  7. Ok, assault rifles are for assaults, right? I don’t plan to assault anybody, I am a law abiding citizen woman that has what it takes to defend herself from assault and if it comes to that, trust me, what’s in front of me won’t be able to tell the story. Yes, I am all FOR THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND WHEN NEEDED THE ASSAULT RIFLE IS ALL WE NEED TO DEFEND THE SECOND AMENDMENT, SO BE IT!

    I would think these fools would have realized by now that all these proposed bans accomplish is firearms buying frenzies. It is my only hope that the true U.S. citizens will be as prepared and determined to use them as they are to have them. The arrogance of these big government power mongers needs to be confronted and buried.

    • You have to be curious as to what this AG’s thought process is on her ancestors having a way to defend themselves instead of a near annilation? Would she have been happy for them to turn in their arms?
      Does she have a body guard? Does she live behind a secure wall? Is she afraid of what will happen if and when liberals continue with their complete takeover of America? She should be very afraid because those that deny the right to defense will be the first targets.

    • I’ve followed Brian at HighImpactFlix since he got started, he’s a good guy and very intelligent…a strong 2nd Amendment Patriot. He just recently did a good video on liberal cities. I don’t watch human dramas or sitcoms, I don’t adore celebrities or actors, people like Brian, Dr Eowyn, Wolfgang Halbig, Fetzer, Etc., those are my true American heroes whom I have the utmost respect for. If and/or when it ever pops off, these are the people I’d stand shoulder to shoulder with on the front lines.
