More kneejerk actions
These peeps have gone postal.
For some unexplained reason they are hysterical.
Per Lewis Carrol:
"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to meanneither more nor less."
"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master that's all."
“Be It Enacted by the People of the State of Oregon..”
And this line makes it all official /s
Oregon needs to legislate limits on the dimensions of tuna fish cans.
It strikes me as odd that the press has been consistently referring to standard issue magazines as “high capacity” magazines. The ordinary M1A (M-14) or AR-15 (M-16) magazine was 20 and 30 rounds, respectively. “High capacity” would be more than that only, and the ridiculously small tin boxes (or polymer) they propose to make a requirement are actually “low capacity”.
is commonly the phrase in a legislative environment used to fast-track a bill.
In this case, the Rights of Oregonians are on the block, the investigation of the latest whackjob killing won't be done for another 6 months, and the legislature is in a rush to deprive Oregonians of their Rights.
To my Oregonian FReepers: I will gladly buy your hi-cap magazines for pennies on the dollar while your elected officials rape your rights.
Don’t forget that when the government” negotiates” with it’s citizens they will throw the whole 9 yards and the kitchen sink at them to overwhelm and create distress then come back with a “downgraded” version of the same legislation to “compromise with us but it’s a lie. It was their strategy and us caving into and agreeing to a “downgraded” version of their legislation was their plan all along. We’ve got to stop being played like fools.
If you think we have any intention of complying should this ban pass you’ve been smoking too much wacky tobacco. For many of us, Washington and Idaho are mere minutes away. This law would only help their economies.
I wonder how they think this will be enforced? Strictly by a chance encounter? What fools. If I sold a 30 round mag to my friend do they think there will be some serial number involved? 30 round mag? Never had one. Prove it!
They are not hysterical...they are deliberate.
Once enacted.... try to get it repealed.
They will howl that you are EVIL and UNCARING and whatever else they can think of.
