Ginny Burdick Lays Out Tactics For Gun Grabbing Advocates

Oregon state Senator Ginny Burdick spoke at the “One Million Moms For Gun Control” rally, February 9th, 2013 ( https://www.facebook.com/events/274285102701019/ ). There, she laid out the plans and tactics that gun grabbers can use to get what they want, which is more legislation based on fear and misinformation. About 100 people turned out for the event, including some pro gun protesters, as opposed to the 1000 some odd who were at the pro gun rally the day before.

The basic tactics can also be used by the pro gun people! While the anti gun arguments are based primarily on fear and distrust of “ordinary citizens”, basically accusing everyone of being possible criminals, the pro gun rights backers have more rationality, statistics, and historical precedent. The tactics are 2 fold; Build your base and show up for the lobby day in Salem.

Her advice to build the base involves each person talking with 10 new people who have never been involved before. That should be easy for the pro gun people to do! The state legislature will be holding committee hearing sessions where anyone can go and testify before the state House and/or Senate. Even if you don’t want to talk, you can still show up and show your support for those who are testifying.

Also on hand for the “One Million Moms For Gun Control” event was Ceasefire Oregon, the group who bans and silences any dissenting comments made on their facebook page. They have rolled out their list of bills they endorse or are currently working on, http://www.ceasefireoregon.org/cfo/index.html . In addition to the magazine ban that has already gained publicity, there is a bill that would ban legal, background checked CHL holders from bringing concealed handguns into schools. Because, you know, the people who shoot up schools all have the proper permits for guns (sarcasm). We wouldn’t want anyone in there with the ability to stop the next Adam Lanza (more sarcasm).

If you forget, this is the same Ginny Burdick who calls for full registration of guns, laughs at shooting victims, and insults gun owners in a video posted a couple weeks ago.
