Quote of the Day
When they passed Measure 114, Oregon voters made a legislative judgment about the serious and immediate threat that large capacity magazines pose to public safety, and that judgment is entitled to this court’s deference.

Oregon judge to decide in new trial whether voter-approved gun control law is constitutional
Interesting. I did not know that a popular vote by a 50.6% majority could override the constitution. That’s good to know.
But I’m sure it will come as a surprise to many in the deep south where opposition to desegregation of the schools would easily pass by popular vote.
And I can hardly wait for some state to ban Christianity and another state to require all people to attend a Christian church at least three days each month and tithe 10% of their income to the church. And don’t forget about required daily testimony of how climate change has affected you, while the neighboring state requires everyone to meet their daily minimum CO2 output to help prevent global cooling. And, of course, being accused of homosexuality is punishable by death without trial in one state and, in another state, all 3rd graders must pass a proficiency test in front of the class of four different homosexual acts in each of five different positions.
The popular vote will be entitled such deference just as is the case with the ban of magazines in common use.
This lawyer really must have crap for brains if they actually believe that claim. I’m thinking it is just another case of the “Big Lie” because no degreed lawyer can be that stupid and/or ignorant.
