After Late Hurdles, Oregon Gun Control Proposal Might Come Up Short

There are 3 comments on the KUOW-FM Seattle story from Jun 16, 2018, titled After Late Hurdles, Oregon Gun Control Proposal Might Come Up Short. In it, KUOW-FM Seattle reports that:

On Thursday, three parties appealed proposed ballot language for Initiative Petition 44 to the Oregon Supreme Court. That means backers of the measure won't be able to begin circulating petitions to land it on November's ballot for weeks, a potentially decisive blow.

This is pretty much a no brainier after Healer.

"the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional."

Guess you really can't say a "no brainier" when people with no brains are activally advocating it. When will they learn.

For the other initiative, Healer also referenced and supported the Miller finding.

"United States v. Miller, 307 U. S. 174 , does not limit the right to keep and bear arms to militia purposes, but rather limits the type of weapon to which the right applies to those used by the militia, i.e., those in common use for lawful purposes."
