From Pistoleer B.Zh comes the following.

Oral arguments are scheduled for Measure 114 injunction suit Dec 2. in good health from behind enemy lines:

11.25.2022

Things are moving quickly in our suit to put Mz 114 on ice.

While there is a long battle ahead of us, the first job is to get an injunction to prevent it from going into effect while we demonstrate that it is clearly unconstitutional.

Though we had expected others, including large national gun rights groups and representatives of the firearms industry, to take legal action, as of today none, to our knowledge, have.

That makes our case even more critical.

Yesterday, Thanksgiving Day, the Federal Court took the unusual step of acting on a Federal holiday and scheduling oral arguments for Dec 2nd.

While this greatly reduces the time our legal team has for preparation, we are hoping it means the court has recognized the need to act quickly. But only time will tell.

OFF wants to assure you that we recognize the gravity of this case. Not only are the livelihoods of thousands at risk, for too many to count, their very lives could be at risk.

The promoters of this measure were more than happy to crush small businesses across the state and send a message to the most vulnerable Oregonians that their safety and privacy are meaningless. They have callously placed security guards and off duty police at risk of being seriously outgunned by criminals.

They continue to lie about the measure and its impacts.

And people who should know better keep giving out ridiculous advice to gun owners who face jail time for simply being in possession of constitutionally protected magazines they have owned for decades.

“To prove a gun owner had possession of higher-capacity magazines prior to Measure 114 going into effect , the owner could take a photo with a timestamp of the magazines, state police Capt. Stephanie Bigman suggested”

This clearly preposterous suggestion will only serve to mislead and endanger people.

Obviously, magazines cannot be identified in a photograph since they all look exactly the same. And it’s laughable to think a court is going to accept a “time stamped” digital photo when, as you can see, they can be so easily altered.

Once again, we want to thank everyone who has been contributing to this fight. The opening salvo comes on Dec 2nd. But no matter how the court rules, this is just the beginning, and your continued support is critical.

Please share this link with your friends and family as we are going to need all the help we can get.

    1. As I’ve sadly learned from the ChinaFly fiasco, most will happily comply and try to force the rest of us to kneel with them. I was taught in History long ago, only a third of colonists were for independence, a third wanted to stay British and a third didn’t care. Thankfully, that one third was enough to prevail, hopefully at least a third will give a shit this time.

      1. “Though we had expected others, including large national gun rights groups and representatives of the firearms industry, to take legal action, as of today none, to our knowledge, have.”

        Story of Oregon gun control right there.

        When this dumpster fire of a measure was going through the certification process, NRA released a statement akin to ‘we support gun rights, mmmmmkay?’ and that’s about it. Meanwhile Bloomberg & Co. spent upwards of $2M to get this on the ballot and deceive low information voters in Oregon.

        Now that the measure has passed and the Sec’y of State Shemia (pronounced shame-e-ahhhh for a reason – Ms. “Just give me my F- on guns” Fagan sees a mandate to enforce it exactly 30 days after polls close (despite all the votes not yet having been counted and a margin of 50.71% yes 49.29% no… a difference of less than 28K votes!) Where’s the NRA except in my mail box asking for money and offering a $2.99 buck knife?

        How about FPC and the 2nd Amendment Foundation? Too busy partying after Bruen and the NY CCIA? HEY! We’re over here giving you the best ‘unconstitutional’ test case you could ask for…. but??

  1. I am happy to see how active the citizens and gun rights groups are at fighting this. Hearty hats off to them.
