Eugene’s Gun Grabbing Mayor – “Ban All Military-Style Assault Weapons and High Capacity Magazines”

[WITH VIDEO] Dateline March 3, 2013 – Eugene, Oregon:  The Mayor of Eugene Oregon is calling for “the banning of all military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”  The Honorable Kitty Piercy made the demand at an outside rally of the anti-gun group “Cease Fire Oregon,” held today in the state’s second largest city.  Cease Fire Oregon supports (and by some accounts actually wrote) House Bill 3200 which according to gun experts, effectively bans all modern firearms and allows for warrantless searches of your home.  The Honorable Mayor calls for rally participants to support this and similar pending legislation.  Perhaps attendance numbers are an indicator for support for her ideas.  Watch the video to see how many showed.  The speech is shown in its entirety over at the blog Daylight Disinfectant.  Watch the video by clicking HERE.

I don’t know why he did that–as far as I can recall, […]
