Here is what I just wrote to my democrat state Senator:
Thank you for the town hall meeting you held in Roseburg the other night. It is so important to me that you take time out of your busy schedule to meet face to face with your constituents.
I was concerned that not one voter asked about your stance on any new gun legislation that may be introduced in the Oregon senate this session.
A new law or set of laws will only restrict law abiding citizens. Criminals will not all of a sudden say, "Oh I better not violate this new law the Oregon senate just passed," no it only affects law abiding citizens and since they are not the problem, only enforcement of existing laws will help with these violent and mentally deranged criminal's.
Our duly elected Sheriff, Hanlan, has stated in a letter to the VP of the US that he will not enforce any unconstitutional laws passed by the politicians in Washington DC, I imagine he would say the same about unconstitutional laws passed by the Oregon politicians.
I beg of you do not make guns that millions of law abiding citizens own LEGALLY, illegal. Most will not comply with an unconstitutional infringement on our 2nd amendment right, plus I have the assurance that my Sheriff, elected by the citizens of Douglas County as their chief law enforcement officer in Douglas County will not comply either. Respectfully, Diana Woodward Sutherlin, OR
