Oregon Gun Owners Group – Sheeple in Wolfs Clothing?
Salem, Oregon –-(Ammoland.com)- It's the time for giving and once again gun owners across the state are receiving requests for cash from an organization that claims to support gun rights, while working overtime for gun control.
Oregonians who have concealed handgun licenses are getting this letter from “Oregon Gun Owners Political Action Committee”
In 1999 “Oregon Gun Owners” worked with former legislator, and perennial candidate, Kevin Mannix, to forge legislation that would outlaw private transfers of firearms at gun shows. They failed. They then attempted a ballot measure to do the same thing. They failed again. (Their sister-in-arms, Ginny Burdick, armed with millions in out-of-state money succeeded.)
Now “Oregon Gun Owners” is asking real Oregon gun owners to send them cash. What do they do with it? Well in 2010 alone the sent over $8000.00 to anti-gun politicians in Salem. They endorsed Floyd Prozanski and Peter Courtney, two of the most anti-gun politicians in the state, and they sent their lobbyist, Paul Phillips to testify in FAVOR of more gun control in the February “special” session.
Their letter says that the cost of printing their fundraising letter was paid for “by another gun rights organization.” Oddly they don't say who that was. We think it's most likely that the other “gun rights” organization was… Oregon Gun Owners.
At this special time of year, when money is tight and scams are uptrending, we at OFF think it's important to know who you are giving to.
Have a merry and scam-free Christmas.
The Oregon Firearms Federation has proven itself to be Oregon’s only no compromise lobbying group, OFF takes the same tough stands and serves as a vehicle for educating gun owners, promoting their rights and when necessary, fighting the freedom haters in court. Visit: www.oregonfirearms.org
