Oregon county vote against enforcing state gun law sparks outcry


By Courtney Sherwood 1 hour ago

PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - Gun-control advocates on Wednesday decried as a misguided political maneuver a vote by Oregon county commissioners against enforcement of new statewide gun background check requirements.

Lane County's commissioners in a 4-1 vote on Tuesday decreed that local government could not afford to investigate violations of the new law, and affirmed the “right of the people to keep and bear arms” under the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment

"We've had to make major cuts in our law enforcement and prosecution budgets. We currently don't prosecute 1,800 felonies per year,” said Bozievich, a Republican. “We don't have the resources to enforce this law.”

It hardly matters, it just means the local law enforcement don't plan to go out and actively look for violations. The state of Oregon can enforce it statewide. Even if it's not state enforced aggressively by Oregon's current governor; maybe the next one will "go all out" and hire state level agents to enforce in areas where police choose not to. The law being on the books would be a dangerous tool for a future anti-gun state administration.

Nevertheless, the State of Oregon has a law on the books against enforcement of federal immigration laws.
