Nearly a month after a tragic mass shooting shook Umpqua Community College, a rural Oregon county roughly two hours west of the school passed a measure directing the sheriff to bypass state and federal gun laws if he judges them unconstitutional.

Coos County residents smoothly approved the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance on Tuesday with more than 60 percent voting for its passage. The ordinance bars public employees from using county funds to enforce any laws the sheriff deems unconstitutional.

Oregon Sheriffs testify, they will NOT enforce new gun-grabbing law! (Video)

My friend, Michael Strickland, a conservative citizen journalist here in Oregon whose videos can be seen at Laughing at Liberals and whose writing can be seen at Gateway Pundit, captured some great testimony yesterday in Salem.

The State House of Representatives was debating Senate Bill 941, which in summary:

Outlaws private transfers of personal property, expands gun registry and police gun owner list, requires gun owners to ask permission from Oregon State Police before giving guns to others, forces every transfer to be subject to failed “background check” system.

Texas bill to bar gun status in medical records

From ParkerCailyPost.com, By David Warren, April 2, 2015 –

Dr. John Porter examines Connor Russell, 8, during an office visit Tuesday, March 31, 2015, in Richardson, Texas. The Texas Legislature is considering a bill that would forbid doctors from listing on medical records whether a patient is a gun owner. The measure is meant to prevent government agencies from accessing the information. Some pediatric doctors say the law could prevent them from ascertaining the health or environmental dangers a child may face, and criticize a government attempt to intrude on the doctor-patient relationship.

DALLAS (AP) 4/2/2015

Texas lawmakers are considering a bill that would keep a person’s gun ownership status from being listed in their medical records, a move health providers worry would be an unnecessary government intrusion that harms their consultations with patients.

The bill would make Texas at least the second state to enact similar restrictions, following a 2011 Florida law on hold because of legal challenges.

Armed Citizen

 

A Scottsdale, Ariz., man who was shot during an assault recently was moved from a hospital room to a jail cell. The 28-year-old man had been shot after allegedly breaking into his estranged girlfriend’s home, holding her against her will and sexually assaulting her in early December. During the fracas, the woman broke free and fled, and the troublemaker chased her as she ran through the apartment complex knocking on doors looking for help. One neighbor who tried to help was allegedly attacked by the suspect. In fear for his life, and to protect the woman, that man retrieved a handgun and shot the assailant in the chest. The suspect ran off but collapsed about 150 yards away. He was taken to a hospital and two weeks later was released into police custody and jailed. Police said the shooter will not be charged.

Obama ‘doubles down,’ thinks ‘he can go around Congress’

From WND.com, by Leo Hohmann, 02/17/15 –

Today, it’s legal. Tomorrow, it might not be.

By executive fiat, the Obama administration intends to eliminate one of the most common types of .223-caliber ammunition, used by the AR-15 and other general-purpose rifles.

Why? Ostensibly because a type of handgun developed in recent years is also capable of firing the so-called “armor-piercing” or “green-tipped” rounds traditionally fired only by rifles.

44 Mag

From The Daily Caller Contributer – Guns and Gear, 02/11/2015 –

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today won a major federal court ruling in a case involving interstate handgun transfers in which the judge applied strict scrutiny to determine whether a ban on such transfers meets constitutional muster.

The case, which was financially supported by the Second Amendment Foundation, is known as Mance v. Holder. It involves plaintiffs residing in the District of Columbia and Texas, and could have far-reaching ramifications, according to CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb.

TEXAS: New bill declares all federal gun control invalid and non enforceable

Texas State Capitol

Texas State Capitol

AUSTIN, November 14, 2014– A Texas legislator has introduced a new bill to derail the enforcement of virtually all federal gun control measures within the state’s borders.

“With this bill, Texas could help lead the country forward,” said Scott Landreth, campaign lead for ShallNot.org, a project of the Tenth Amendment Center that advocates for states to protect their citizens from federal overreach. “Passage would have serious impact on the federal government’s ability to carry out its unconstitutional gun control measures already on the books.”

From The Kansas City Star, (The Associated Press) By JOHN MILBURN, 06/29/13 –

TOPEKA – Starting Monday, licensed gun owners will be allowed to bring their concealed weapons into more government buildings in Kansas and people who try to bring them into places where they are prohibited won’t face criminal penalties.

The provisions are part of an expansion of Kansas’ concealed carry law passed during last year’s legislative session as the federal government was discussing gun-control measures in the wake of a mass shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school in December. The new rules allow people with concealed carry permits to bring firearms into public buildings deemed not to have adequate security measures, such as metal detectors and trained guards.

Obama orders ‘mental-health’ testing for schoolkids

Quietly unleashes cache of federal dollars under auspices of ‘gun violence’

guns_bibles-3

Critics say personal information scooped up in the screenings will be logged into databases that will follow the child throughout his or her academic career and beyond.
