YEAH, THEY LIE ABOUT THE GUN LAWS, TOOThe Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence LIES while calling for the Douglas County Sheriff's resignation. Their statement: "The citizens of Oregon voted for the expansion of Brady background checks in a law this May. Pledging not to enforce the new law, John Hanlin has clearly demonstrated his political ideology trumps his responsibility to his community".
The Brady people lie through their teeth to you. The citizens of Oregon didn't vote for those background checks, the DEMOCRAT PARTY-CONTROLLED LEGISLATURE DID. In fact they added an emergency clause to keep the people from being able to vote on this.
And as they get up on their high horse about "enforcing the law", know there is all sorts of nullification of laws. Every time a cop uses discretion to not enforce a law, every time the D.A. chooses not to charge or prosecute, or every time a fully informed jury chooses not to convict, even if the evidence indicates guilty, people are going against enforcing the law.
It's why we have judgement. Using the Brady Campaign's logic, were the Dems to pass a law calling for the torture and imprisonment of all white people, should no one question this? After all, "it would be the law". Sure, and it was once a crime not to return runaway slaves, too. Wake up people...It's as if many of the 60's generation, which always preached "Question Authority", have turned into the biggest authoritarian tyrants since grabbing power.
TAKING THE VAN OUT FOR SOME FUN ON VACATION
Here's a shot of our now BEAUTIFUL Vanagon (Thanks to Lithia Body and Paint) as I hit the road late last week. I camped near Meridian Overlook way past Mt. Ashland. Whoa, it was SO cold. I woke up Friday morning to ice on the van's windows, and chattering teeth. I guess that's life at the 6500 foot elevation, huh? Hiked to the top of Red Mountain near Wrangle Cap off PCT, and there was so much cloud cover. You stood on the peak, and the clouds just surrounded you, really cold once again, but it was great to get in a late season camp. Next time I'll remember the propane heater. :-)
