Election night did not deliver what conservatives hoped for, there is simply no way around that.
Perhaps the most concerning part about the elections is the slew of far-left amendments and ballot measures that passed.
But gun owners were encouraged after this bold sheriff stood his ground.
Leftists made major policy gains this election cycle
Although control of Congress is still to be determined, conservatives failed to stop a number of extreme ballot measures this past election cycle.
Among these are extreme abortion policies, drug legalization, and of course, even more gun control.
One of the most extreme anti-gun measures to pass was Ballot Measure 114 in Oregon, which requires citizens to buy a $65 permit to exercise their Second Amendment right.
The other part of the measure “prohibits manufacturing, importing, purchasing, selling, possessing, using, or transferring ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds and make violations a class A misdemeanor.”
Not only is this a completely unnecessary financial burden for thousands of Oregon citizens, but it is also a flagrant affront to the Second Amendment.
Fortunately, there are some in Oregon who are willing to stand up to this unjust and unConstitutional ballot measure.
One such person is Sheriff Michelle Duncan who told Oregon’s KATU station when referring to Ballot Measure 114, “This is a terrible law for gun owners, crime victims, and public safety.”
She went on to declare “I want to send a clear message to Linn County residents that the Linn County Sheriff’s Office is NOT going to be enforcing magazine capacity limits.”
She ended by saying “I want to ensure anything we do or don’t do will not hinder gun owners’ rights to purchase firearms, intentionally or unintentionally.”
Thank goodness for patriots like Sheriff Michelle Duncan who have the guts to stand up to oppressive regimes such as the one destroying the once great state of Oregon.
What should happen to dangerous ballot measures like Ballot Measure 114
The bottom line is that every single freedom-loving American should be mortified by these oppressive ballot measures, even if they do not live in the state of Oregon.
Make no mistake, what the Democrats are doing in California and Oregon is their dream for the rest of America.
The Supreme Court and other lower courts must take these direct assaults on the Constitution very seriously, and legal action must be swift.
The United States Constitution and more specifically the Second Amendment is very explicit when it protects the right to bear arms.
But what the Left does not understand, is that the right to bear arms for self-defense is not granted by the Constitution, but rather it is granted by God himself.
These direct assaults on the Constitution need to be taken very seriously, and it is up to every patriot to stand against anti-gun policies like Ballot Measure 114.
Ballot Measure 114 is the next step in the radical Left’s quest to completely destroy America, and reduce civilians to nothing more than slaves to the state.
