Skip to comments.Q&A: Oregon Police Chief leads lonely charge for stricter gun buyer background checks (Wisconsin)
Posted on 08/19/2012 6:28:00 AM PDT by rellimpank
In an era in which pro-gun advocates have been racking up a string of victories, Doug Pettit is trying to hit the brakes. The Oregon police chief, who serves as the legislative chairman for the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association, is one of the most vocal proponents of expanding background checks for gun buyers.
Pettit and his group are part of a national push by the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence, which hopes to convince federal lawmakers to mandate background checks on people who purchase guns at gun shows, flea markets and other venues that dont involve licensed gun dealers.

No more compromise! All they do is want more and more in the future, while we give more and more. It stops NOW!
Move to North Korea if you want to live in total gun control.
someone needs to call out this jackass and ask him of all those shootings, how many of them we by a violent felon who used a firearm that NIC would have never allowed in the first place. These people are absolutely off their rockers. You really must have a mental defect if you can't see that gun laws and restrictions aren't doing anything other than making life difficult and more expensive for the law-abiding.
Oregon Wisconsin is a village in Dane County, and is about 8 miles south of Madison. A lot of former Madison people, especially state employees have moved there over the years. Most are liberal, big government and vote Democrat. It is nice rolling land and a lot of horse owners live there or stable their horses in the area.
Crime is minimal so the Police Chief has lots of time to spend on the agenda of the National and State Police Chiefs associations - which toe the line with liberal mayors such as NYC Bloomberg and Madison Mayor Soglin (a 70’s hippy dippy).
--my sincere desire is that Senator Dale Schultz--SW Wisconsin's leading RINO--is replaced next election---
And they wonder why citizens aren't stupid enough to go along with the ruse.
I’ll bet this chief received training from the Southern Poverty Law Center. Or ‘re-education’ as the Communists use to call it...

And it was perpetrated by LEOs.
Furthermore, LEOs are far more likely to commit a violent crime with a gun than are concealed-carry permit-holders.
We need to close the LEO loophole.
Catchy name for a couple of old commies with press connections. National my butt.
I bet his cops have killed more innocent people and dogs than anyone he’s ever stopped wtih a background check.
2 of my classmates from high school class of 1957 live in Oregon, Wis. It is about 9 miles from the farm house I grew up in.
There are OVER 600,000 hunters in Wisconsin who have licenses.
I understand that in the 2011 hunting season, there was not one single death due to hunting accidents.
Seems the 600,000 hunting ‘army’ in Wisconsin is more disciplined than the Afghanistan people our military is ‘training’ to take over the security for their own country.
The gang problems in Madison are migrating to Oregon, Mt Horeb, Evansville, Edgerton, Sun Prairie, DeForest & other suburbs of Madison.
The police need to get the trouble makers put away for a very long time, if not put underground.
My brother has said that in all the years of living where he is in Madison, he has NEVER heard so many sirens after dark as he hears now. I fear for his safety.
This anti-Bill of Rights thug cant understand why the NRA, the nations oldest civil rights organization, has the power it has. Well, its because people like him want to infringe our rights.
He should be removed from the force and bared from ever being a cop again.
