OR Lege: Ray of hope squelched

Carla Axtman

So much for the ray of hope.

Senator Betsy Johnson, (D-Scappoose):

I have not changed my position on any of the gun bills being proposed; should they come to the floor of the Senate, I will still be a no.

Well, that sucks.

Johnson's stated reasoning on background checks for private sales has to do with poor reporting requirements for of adjudicated mental conditions to NICS. Frankly, that's ridiculous. Does this mean that we shouldn't have background checks AT ALL because of this? Absurd.

The fact that we can't even get a background check bill passed in our Democratically controlled legislature is shameful.
