Democrat Townhall Shuts Down Gun Debate

unger_for_featured_image

An eastside Portland townhall put on by state Senator Rod Monroe and state Representatives Jeff Reardon and Jessica Vega Pederson falls apart as they stop taking questions from pro-gun supporters, and they waffle on answering the few questions that had been asked. Mr. Monroe and Mr. Reardon are both sponsors of Oregon’s HB 3200, which is a massive gun ban bill.

They go on to take a series of softball questions regarding roads, sidewalks, bridges, and education, before someone else stands up and wants to talk about the proposed gun bans.

 

After the townhall, a cameraman confronts the three legislators to discuss the real issues and bring up some tough questions. All three of the politicians display their lack of knowledge on guns, light rail, and the horribly expensive Columbia River Crossing bridge project.

Mr. Monroe tells a story of a man threatening people with knives in the capitol building. The man was eventually stopped by police. With Guns.

 

And in this video, Mr. Reardon says he has not read the gun bill that he has sponsored, and was unaware of several of the provisions in it that folks were concerned with.

    Solunds all to familiar here doesn’t it ? ” I HAVE NOT READ THE BILL.” IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE IT, why would you co-sponsor it ? You must be just another idiot, that signs anything that someone lays down in front of you. What is it that you do for the state of Oregon ? Oh, I remember, spend money on pet projects that we don’t have, but your lobby friends want you to spend so they can line their pockets and maybe push a couple of favors your way. Typical for a liberal. Maybe you should move back to California where you or where your framily lived at one time.

    We all know how well criminals will follow any gun laws. Criminals will still possess and use guns despite any new restrictions on lawful citizens.
