“I know that many in Oregon are VERY upset that SB 719 passed,” Republican State Representative Bill Post announced Thursday. “Therefore a group of us are working to repeal it via the ballot. We need your help.”
SB 719? That’s a new edict that specifies:
“A law enforcement officer or a family or household member of a person may file a petition requesting that the court issue an extreme risk protection order enjoining the person from having in the person’s custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing or receiving, or attempting to purchase or receive, a deadly weapon.”
Without even being charged with a crime, let alone convicted… Think of the potential incentives for abuse. And then think of the expense it would take for someone falsely accused to fight allegations, and the amount of “sympathy” or even basic justice to expect from an overwhelmingly “progressive” Oregon “justice” system.
Think of how “guilty until proven innocent” stands against everything right and just. And Constitutional.
Family Security Matters
by JANET LEVY
The Muslim Brotherhood has penetrated every one of our national security agencies, including our intelligence agencies, according to retired Navy admiral James “Ace” Lyons, former commander of the U.S. Pacific fleet. Adm. Lyons made this startling declaration Jan. 16, 2015 during a conference sponsored by the Center for Security Policy, a conservative Washington, D.C. think-tank.
In the two years since, no action has been taken to reverse this dangerous situation. Empowerment of individuals of questionable loyalties within our intelligence community continues unabated, as does a counterfactual view of Islam and thwarting of terrorist investigations. Our government routinely targets and cashiers productive, legitimate counter-terrorism experts and fails to label terrorist organizations as such. U.S. intelligence failures and feckless politicization have gone on for years, rendering our protections against terrorism ineffectual and putting our country at grave risk.
