He needs your comments

Portland Oregon mayor Sam Adams (how ironic) wants your comments on his plan to violate Oregon State’s preemption law and the Second Amendment:

  • Impose a special curfew for juveniles who have been found by a court of law
    to have violated gun laws.
  • Create new city crime of failure to control access to a firearm by a child
  • Create new city crime of failure to report theft or loss of a firearm
  • Increase penalties for possession of a loaded firearm in a public place
  • Exclude people who have been found by a court of law to have violated
    firearms use or possession laws from areas of the City in which illegal use of
    firearms is markedly greater than other areas. Exclusions to be enforced
    through arrest for trespass, but with many variances available for necessary and
    non-harmful activities.

He wants your feedback by Friday September 3rd. You can review the draft code provisions here and email him at mayorsam@portlandoregon.gov.

  1. Vice one or two comments, he seems to be getting his peepee slapped quite a bit over there.

    Think he’ll actually listen to those who disagree with him?

  2. Think he’ll actually listen to those who disagree with him?
    He can always chalk it up to, both at the same time, the “powerful gun lobby” and astroturf, never stopping to ponder the fact that the powerful gun lobby is as grassroots as grassroots can get. Besides; it doesn’t matter how many people disagree with “reality” or with “public safety” does it?
