Frosh Rep On Latest Burdick Gun Grab: “It’s Not Going Anywhere!”

unger_for_featured_image

ben_unger_from_flyerDateline Portland Oregon February 23, 2013:  Democratic State Representative Ben Unger offers no support for the latest effort by Democratic Senator Ginny Burdick to grab guns from law abiding Oregonians.  Unger made this clear at an informal “COFFEE WITH YOUR REP!” event held at BJ’s Coffee in Forest Grove Oregon.  HB3200 co-sponsored by a number of State Reps and Senators, including Burdick, would effectively ban all modern firearms and allow for warrantless searches of your home to enforce it.   (Yes you read that correctly.)  Unger has obviously been bombarded by emails on the topic as he tried to wade through the mess on his iPhone.  He goes on to give his position on multiple round magazines, universal background checks, and a number of other gun related issues.

    You know what Ben, If you were to go lock up Ginny in a broom closet and you and the rest of you worthless un-educated, left wing liberal loons would just go sit down and play poker for the entire session the residents of this once great state would appreciate it. That way, you could not and would not screw us or anything else up in the state. Might as well lock the “RETREAD” gov guy, that loves to kiss up to that dude that likes to call himself the president, in a bathroom by himself, so he can not sail us down the Willamette either.
    One more thing, tell the SEIU to stick their “DEMANDS” up one of their body orifices where the sun does not shine. Just who do they think they are ? WE DEMAND. Produce a “FULL” days work for what you get now.
