Antigun zealots in the Oregon legislature are barreling ahead with SB941, the expanded background checks bill and the house has scheduled a hearing today, Wednesday, at 3 pm in HR 50 in the House Rules Committee. You can send a written testimony to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
The law is a mechanism to get every gun registered with the state government. Registration will lead to confiscation and history will back that fact. They fear you and that is the real reason the political elite want to take away your ability to defend yourself and your family.
Knowing their intentions the people of Coos County have to use every political avenue at our disposal to protect the Second Amendment.
Currently, we have gathered about 1000 signatures to put the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance on the books as law in Coos County. We were hoping to put this on the ballot in September, but that may not be in time to preempt the passage of SB941 by the state.
Since time is of the essence, our group has asked the Coos County Board of Commissioners to put the item on the agenda to discuss enacting the ordinance through a vote of the board. It would mean the ordinance could be law immediately of their vote, and it would save the county from having to pay for a September election, which could cost up to forty grand.
The Chair of the Board, Bob Main, requested the item for Tuesday May 5, 2015 in the Owen Building in Coquille at the next regularly scheduled meeting.
Now we need your help!
Please try to show up to this meeting and demand the commissioners to do everything possible to protect our Second Amendment rights and vote in favor of the Second Amendment Ordinance.
Please return as many signatures that you can gather between now and May 5 then bring the petition sheets to the commissioner’s meeting where the group will collect them, so we can show the board the amount of public support there is in our community for individual rights. We will continue to gather signatures until the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance is law in Coos County, because there is a good chance the Board will not move to enact it.
Our group’s intention is not to cost the county money, or to cause political turmoil for the commissioners. Our only goal is to protect the right of the people to bear arms, but procedural barriers limit our recourses of action.
Coos County Board of Commissioners
Tuesday, May 5, 2015

It would be very beneficial to overwhelm the local papers with letters written to the editors about the movement to preserve our rights. You only have to right one letter, but make sure and send it to all the local editors.
