Soon the state legislature will be in session, and every person who owns a firearm will be in the sights of its members because they are beaming with new ideas in ways to disarm the citizens of Oregon.
To counter these attacks on our liberty, a couple of months ago I filed another measure called the Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance and I finally got the SASO petition sheets approved to sign for Coos County residents. Anyone who is a registered voter of Coos County can sign this petition.
We are the first county in OR to have this new ordinance filed as an initiative. Josephine County passed a similar law by a vote of their commissioners this past year, so they are the first official Second Amendment Sanctuary County in the state. Our goal is to turn every county into a sanctuary for law-abiding gun owners, and we plan to do it “one county at a time.”
Anyone who would like to find out more info or to help us in our campaign should surf to our website www.SanctuaryOrdinance.com where you can volunteer, sign up for our newsletter, or donate to the campaign. For all other inquires all interested parties can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sincerely, Rob Taylor
Question: Shall the citizens of Coos County adopt the proposed Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance?
Summary: The effect of a yes vote would:
Prohibit Coos County officials (unless ordered by a court) from participating in the enforcement of an Extraterritorial Act or to use any county funds to enforce an Extraterritorial Act. An Extraterritorial Act is any local, state, federal act, laws, orders, rules or regulations which restrict the right to keep and bear arms, ammunition and firearm accessories by any person.
As an example, the proposed ordinance would prohibit county officials from enforcing current laws that:
Prohibit carrying a firearm concealed;
Prohibit those adjudicated to be mentally ill from possessing a firearm;
Prohibit the unlawful possession of sawed off shotguns, short barreled rifles and silencers.
The ordinance allows county officials to enforce restrictions on convicted felons from possessing firearms. Would allow county officials to enforce crimes where possession of a firearm is an aggravating factor.
The ordinance has no effect on state, federal or municipal officials enforcing any firearm law in Coos County.
A no vote leaves in place current practice regarding enforcement of firearms laws.
