Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- On November 3 2015, voters in Oregon’s Coos County voted to separate themselves from de jure compliance with state and federal gun control laws by giving their sheriff the job of deciding which laws are constitutional–and therefore deserving of compliance–and which are not.

This vote occurred at the same time that pro-Second Amendment incumbents were retaining control of the Virginia Senate and pro-Second Amendment candidate Matt Bevin (R) was winning the Kentucky gubernatorial race.

Moreover, this rejection of state and federal gun controls took place in Oregon–the most recent ground zero for Obama’s gun control push, following the heinous attack in a gun free zone at Umpqua Community College.

According to the Huffington Post,  Coos County voters passed the “2nd Amendment Preservation Ordinance with 61 percent of the vote.” The ordinance empowers Coos County Sheriff Greg Zanni to determine if a given state or federal gun law goes against the constitution.

“If he thinks they do, the county is then banned from using any resources to enforce those laws. Any county employee who violates the ordinance will be fined $2,000.”

The World reports that Coos County resident Rob Taylor collected signatures to get the ordinance on the ballot and is thrilled with its passage.

Taylor said, “I was pretty confident and sure of getting 60 percent or more, and that’s pretty much what we got. That we won by 20 percent or more says people support the Second Amendment and oppose the background checks in SB 941.”

SB 941 was the universal background check bill supported by Sandy Hook Promise and Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety. The bill was signed into law on May 11 2015 and residents of Coos County hope to use the 2nd Amendment Preservation Ordinance to forbid its enforcement in their county.

The bottom line is gun control only helps criminals and makes the pubic an easy target. One – hundred percent of criminals support gun control, as it only applies to the good guys and not them. They will make the guns if they have to, which is easy to do. No amount of gun control is going to take one gun out of their hands.

Hiuff Po and the rest of the dumb ass liberal crowd are whining about how this county, fresh on a mass murder at its local community college, refuses to follow their gun phobia. Their arguments are, basically ad homminem, are, inter alia, nothing more than the usual (1) insistence that they interpret the 2A more accurately than SCOTUS applying 21st Century definitions, (2) racist attacks on gun owners and 2A supporters, (3) insistence that no good guy with a firewarm has ever stopped a mass murder, (4) attack om the NRA calling it a terrorist organization, (5) sexualization of firearms… Read more »

Not to mention the great liberal LALA land of California. The major urban areas dictate the laws as we have a super majority of Democratic control in both State houses and in federal government representatives.

I am lucky enough to have a place in north east CA to fall back on. Once I retire from the SF Bay Area, we will be getting the he!! out of there.


Like that all over. Seattle runs WA, Portland runs OR ect


It is amazing how our country is run by small geographic areas or population centers. If you look at the land mass of many states you will see that the large majority of locations are pro gun and pro freedom. I know in my state of VA that the metro areas often dictate state policy. In NOVA the DC spill over of government workers are making decisions for the whole state. I think the same thing happens in out NE states. The masses in the city that count on government for everything will pretty much vote for anything they tell… Read more »


It has started, it only took a spark and the fire is going. maybe this one will spread cross country fast. These people are taking a stand against the the gov and they did it using the law.


That’s great!! We need more true Americans to say no to un constitutional laws!!


It finally looks as though the People are awakening to the grave Evil and Darkness coming out of Washington, DC. It will be a long struggle, but we will take back our Country from the Leftist destruction.
