Oregon judge dismisses challenge to county’s Second Amendment sanctuary rules

A judge in Columbia County, Oregon last week thwarted efforts by a gun control advocacy group to challenge the locality’s Second Amendment sanctuary rules already approved by area voters, as the Washington Examiner reports.

The decision came in response to a request by the county’s board of commissioners, who sought judicial review of two measures passed by citizens, the Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance and the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance, as Fox News noted.

The Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance, in particular, reads, “while within Columbia County, this Ordinance preserves the right of any person to keep and bear arms as originally understood; in self-defense and preservation, and in defense of one’s community and country,” among other related rights.

The two provisions in question essentially prohibit any enforcement of the majority of federal or state gun control laws, something which the state attorney general and the Everytown for Gun Safety advocacy group argued is illegal.

Judge Ted Grove, however, dismissed the request for the ordinances to be revisited in court, saying, “While a governing body may seek review of an ordinance…judicial examination still requires a justiciable controversy,” something he deemed missing from this case.

“Petitioners have not demonstrated such a controversy,” Grove said, adding that the AG and gun control advocates actually wanted “what amounts to an advisory opinion designed to invalidate their own newly passed ordinance,” as Fox News further reported.

The outcome was heralded by the Oregon Firearms Federation, which said in a statement, “the Columbia County Court shot down ‘Everytown for Gun Safety,’ Mike Bloomberg’s New York Lawyers, and the usual gaggle of state worshippers and upheld the county’s 2nd Amendment Sanctuary ordinance, and ordinance the county commissioners hoped to torpedo.”

Suggesting that the ruling could have a broader impact, the group added, “This is a victory with national implications and a repudiation to the politics of division that Bloomberg and the gun grabbers are so famous for.”

Not surprisingly, the county was disappointed in the ruling, with attorney Sarah Hansen declaring her fundamental disagreement as to whether a justiciable issue did indeed exist in the case. Given that she also indicated uncertainty as to the likelihood of an appeal, perhaps the will of the people in Columbia County will rightly be allowed to stand.

Heh! Just as in Virginia when Governor Blackface there signed gun grabs into law, almost the entire state declared that they were Second Amendment sanctuaries including the local sheriffs. Then West Virginia invited those who did not want to comply with the new law to join West Virginia. I had to laugh out loud.

Oh I see you screwed up mentally ill liberals / democrats / progressives think you have every right to illegal alien sanctuary cities, counties and states, but a place that has sanctuary for the second amendment; that needs to be challenged.

You liberals are such screwed up sub humans.

Still attempting to “Californicate” the Constitution of “We the People!”

Every time that I hear of these gun control freaks: it makes me think of Fidel Castro regime: the people thought that handing over their weapons and lett ing the regime in charge: it be ok: some were getting a piece of property and education system: they just weren’t savvy : that they gave away what they held and fought for: freedom. While the gun keepers and the tolitarian regime lived in opulence : they had the crumbs of a welfare state: where the government owns everything: you’re the serf and don’t get out of line. So that’s why the Cubans this time though angry about their plight couldn’t fight the tyranical dictatorship. If the American people who believe in America will stand up for America and our constitution with the Bill of rights against tyranny in the disquise of democracy embrace democrat-socialist party and communist party tactics of taking our guns : will know a true patriots heart of 1776 metal.

Exactly.

Funny how liberals think bullring cities, beating white men with bricks, beating Asians, and killing cops is just fine.

But sanctuary places for the second amendment well that is outrageous

I am so HAPPY for them. I fear that in my state of Michigan they will come after our firearms. I don’t have any but I respect a person the right to bear arms

It seems to me that Columbia County has it right. The second amendment is very clear. The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The Democrats/Liberals/Socialists/Marxist don’t seem to understand that those elected by the people can be fired by the people. We employ them and they are supposed to work for us and not the other way around. November 2022 can’t come soon enough.
