Oregon: the Lock-Up Self-Defense Ballot Measure Moves Forward

Oregon – -(AmmoLand.com)- A ballot measure that will require you to keep your self defense firearms locked up and unavailable is moving forward in Oregon.

Ballot Measure 40 has collected enough signatures to get a ballot title from the Attorney General.

In Oregon, the Attorney General is a vocal anti-gun radical. You can rest assured she will do all she can to write the most sympathetic ballot title possible. Of course, we will be doing all we can to prevent that.

The simple truth is, mandatory gun lock-up laws are unconstitutional. This is not in doubt. The US Supreme Court made that clear in the Heller decision.

So now we have no choice but to gear up to fight them in court. We simply must not allow them to write a ballot title that misleads Oregon voters. They need to know that under the proposed ballot measure, victims of theft in Oregon will face harsher penalties than gun thieves will. It’s insane.

Please consider contributing as much as you can to our legal fund to stand in the way of this madness. If we don’t succeed all Oregonian gun owners will face severe legal jeopardy simply for having the means to defend themselves and their loved ones.

Unfortunately the SCOTUS has zero enforcement powers. Perhaps half of all the federal district and appeals court judges do what they want.
Until McDonald the states were free to write laws that did not fully support the Second Amendment. This a broad question that the SCOTUS has always answered in fine, limited detail.
It is time for the SCOTUS to review and impeach judges who refuse to follow the Court’s opinions.

we no longer have LAW AND ORDER ANY MORE.
WHEN WE THE PEOPLE ARE RULED BY MOB RULE.
AND THIS IS WHY OUR 2ND AMENDMENT WAS ADDED TO OUR BILLS OF RIGHTS.
JUST FOR A TIME AS TODAY.

The State cannot command someone to not carry a firearm on them in their own home or on their own property! While I’m all for VOLUNTARILY securing firearms that are not on you, schemes like these have to be opposed at the ballot box, in the courts, and (ultimately), people have to declare “I WILL NOT COMPLY!”

IF WE THE PEOPLE SIMPLY REFUSE TO COMPLY EN MASSE WITH THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND UNLAWFUL DICTA OF TYRANTS, THIS BULL WILL STOP!!

That’s rich, an anti-Constitutional attorney general to go along with their anti-Constitutional governor. Are all their legislators are anti-Constitutional as well? Sounds a lot like California.

This AG needs around the clock phone calls, e-mails to her office phones or devices and remind her the anti-gun control scheme she is proposing is unconstitutional. The gun owners need to go on the offensive and get a recall petition going to get her booted out.

Be for real! All of that phone calling, letter writing, and emailing does absolutely nothing! You’re just wasting your hard earned money and destroying trees!

What needs to be done is when any of these asshat leftist politicians submit any unconstitutional proposal, or support one, they should be immediately removed from office (and banned from public office) for violating their oath of office! It wouldn’t take long before ALL leftists and RINOs were removed from government.

I can’t understand why states keep enacting these laws, when the SCOTUS ruled IN PRECEDENT in D.C. v. Heller (2008) that they are facially 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… Read more »

@Teebone, those state legislatures keep enacting statutes that abridge our Constitutionally enshrined Civil Rights because those state legislators are in rebellion against the Constitution and the Republic.

They do it because there is no provision in the Constitution to prevent it! Our forefathers were brilliant, but they were not perfect. They should have added a provision whereby anyone in political office that proposes or supports an unconstitutional “law” should be immediately removed from office for violating their oath of office, and be banned from holding any further public office.

ANYONE participating in or causing, Un-Constitutional Activity, shall be considered a Domestic Terrorist! All Terrorists are Enemies of these United States! Several Million of us have taken an Oath to Defend our Constitution from All Enemies, both Foreign and Domestic! Our Enemies should never forget that a Patriot is a Proud, Dedicated defender of that Document that guarantees our Freedoms! Long Live the Republic! RH

This country was founded and the Constitution written is such a way as to prevent mob rule. These ballot initiatives are nothing but mob rule.

You’re exactly right, and that is why ALL leftists, RINOs, and IDIOTS call this nation a “democracy”, when it is NOT!
