The Yes Side On County-Level Gun Protection Measures

Several Oregon counties will vote in November on versions of a “Second Amendment Protection” measure.  The measure expands the definition of firearms and limits enforcement of firearms in laws.

If passed, it would mandate that definitions of firearms be interpreted as including firearm accessories and ammunition.  In general, it would put the county on record as opposing state efforts to curtail gun ownership rights. 

Jackson County's version is Measure 15-181, the Right to Bear Arms Amendment.  An organization called Patriotic Revolution supports the measure.  Ryan Mallory from the group visits with the case in favor of the measure.
