Yesterday the Corvallis Human Services Committee voted to move a ban on loaded firearms to the full city council.
Was this based on any actual incidents of violence or accidents involving openly carried firearms on public property?
Was this the result of a long, reasoned debate that identified a real issue or problem?
No, this was the result of one member of the committee, Penny York, getting in touch with her feelings.
As the Corvallis Gazette-Times reported; "York, who admitted that her "decision is colored by my feelings," described her experience of knowing five people who have died from gunfire, four by suicide and one in a hunting incident."Yesterday we told you about California billionaire Tom Steyer's efforts to buy two Senate seats in Oregon and install anti-gunners. Steyer hopes to defeat Republicans Betsy Close and Bruce Starr.
