A Message to the “background check” folks lobbying the Capitol on Tuesday

by Rep. Bill Post

Let me be perfectly clear: if any lobby wants to talk to me about “gun control” they won’t get far. We have ENOUGH restrictions already. The background check on Jared Loughner didn’t work. You cannot legislate evil. We in Oregon have some of the strongest gun laws in America and they are enough. Don’t waste your time with my office…we know what the Constitution says.


“Supporters of additional gun restrictions plan to lobby the Oregon Legislature on Tuesday. But the key legislation they want — on background checks — has not yet been introduced.”
