Despite the fact that gun owners in Oregon are now facing new legislative Second Amendment roadblocks, a coalition of activists are determined to stand up for their constitutional rights. As the Gateway Pundit explains, state Senate Bill 941 – which mandates background checks for all private firearms sales – was recently signed into law, provoking the ire of gun owners who already feel their liberties are under attack.
One way these pro-gun advocates plan to make their displeasure known is through a demonstration set for May 30 at the capitol building in Salem.
The ‘I Will Not Comply Demonstration’ is being promoted on Facebook; and, as of this writing, nearly 1,000 individuals have expressed interest in attending.
“We will form up on the capitol steps in Salem to make sure she [an apparent reference to Gov. Kate Brown] knows just how many people she made into criminals in one stroke of a pen,” an event description states.
The social media posting has already attracted dozens of supportive comments.
“Everyone that likes their freedom should go to this,” one Facebook user wrote. “I don’t prefer to be a disarmed sheep. And that is what they want!!!”
Despite the event’s name, there is no overt push to get attendees to disobey the new law. Instead, the rally’s organizer left any such decisions to the individuals who participate.
The description encourages attendees to “do what you think befits an i [sic] won’t comply rally” while practicing “proper weapons safety” at the location.
Should citizens stand up for the right to bear arms? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
