    Democrat Ginny Burdick -- the most impassioned gun-control advocate in the Oregon Senate -- recently dealt with one of those home visits. Some klutz spent several hours filming Burdick outside her home, and Jeff Reynolds, chairman of the Multnomah County Republican Party, gleefully posted the video online. ---------------------------cut------------------- Burdick, meanwhile, has announced that four gun-control bills -- including background checks on all gun transactions except those between immediate family members -- will be heard Thursday in Senate Judiciary. "It's clear that intimidation works," Burdick said. "This is the extremist, highly motivated fringe. The strategy is to make life so miserable...

    Ginny Burdick, a Democratic state senator from Oregon, called for gun registration while laughing about a shooting victim and insulting gun owners as "Rambos" in a video posted to YouTube on Sunday, Twitchy reported. "There’s a real Rambo complex going on here," she said. "You know my favorite one was the guy who after Aurora [Theater massacre] brought his gun to the same theater so he could get the attacker again and he shot himself in the butt," she added, laughing. "And that's a much more likely scenario instead of heading off an intruder." Ironically, the video starts with Burdick...
