Oregon: Bloombergs’ Lock Up Your Safety Re-introduced As Ballot Measure

Oregon – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Bloomberg funded “Oregonians For Safe Gun Storage” is back with another effort to force you to keep your self defense firearm locked up and useless.

Ballot measure 2020-040 is a rehash of all the dangerous and vindictive language we have seen in previous ballot measures and failed legislation.

The measure not only requires that your self defense firearms be rendered useless but it also, (once again) holds you responsible for the criminal misuse of a firearm stolen from you.

As has been the case in all previous ballot measures and failed legislation, the measure contains not one single word about stiffer penalties for people who actually steal guns. In effect, you face greater liability than the thief who stole your firearm.

But there is another interesting provision that these measures always contain but is often overlooked. While the measure requires you to lock your guns in a “container” or with a “trigger” or “cable” lock, it holds you responsible for the misuse of a stolen firearm even if you did lock it up!

Section 1 (B) (b) says the firearm is not secured if “any other means” of opening a lock or container is available to the person who stole your gun!
Clearly, except for an expensive gun safe, almost any “gun lock” is easily defeated.

Despite what the Bloomberg stooges say in their ballot measure, this new attack on rights is not intended to “prevent tragedies,” it is intended to punish gun owners and put them in danger while continuing to do nothing to perpetrators and thieves .

We were successful in defeating the worst of the gun legislation in the 2019 session. But the battle never ends. The Bloomberg stooges are very wealthy and not likely to make the mistakes they made in the past.

This fight will be all about the legal bill and this last session was costly. Please consider the most generous donation you can afford.

Why, in the face of these widespread efforts, is NO ONE citing the fact that the Heller Court has already held such laws unconstitutional? “Held: “3) …the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional.” – D.C. v. Heller (2008) Dicta: “[A] statute which, under the pretense of regulating, amounts to a destruction of the right, or which requires arms to be so borne as to render them wholly useless for the purpose… Read more »

@TeeBone, The libtards do not accept the results of a court case that does not go their way. The libtards do not accept the results of an election that does not go their way. The libtards do not accept the opinion of anyone that does not express their views in the way that they would express that view.
Lots of famous people through out history have taken that position, from Sargon the Great to Barry Soetoro the Great.


The good thing about Oregon is our big city (Portland) only has about one million brainless liberal phukktard voters, whereas Seattle has several million.


Didn’t get to say what I want. So long as rich people can buy polititians we will never win. We need electorial college vote for goveneor

Hey Ammoland, your new system sucks. Cant type over one box, no scroll, post comnent dissapears. Wish Commie zkate would dissapear too.


The Commie Collective constantly dreams of implementing a Regime of Unchecked, Unlimited power over the citizens of this country. They intend to make the Freedoms that so many have fought and died for meaningless. Disgraceful, if not down right criminal.


If they word it like the WA ballot initiative and rely on low info voters to pass it, it will get enacted. Hopefully the guv will be recalled by then and it wont get signed.


The foundation of all Jim Crow laws was to criminalize the exercise of an enumerated natural right. This was true in the Reconstruction South against blacks and it true today against the new vilified class, gun owners. Progressives know they will have a very difficult time with outright bans and confiscations, witness New Zealand, but the next best path is to render your Second Amendment protections moot by tying up your liberties in senseless and ineffective reed tape. This has been going on for a long time and operates under Gramsci’s general theory of incrementalism. Chip away at liberty until… Read more »
