Anti-Gun Oregon Governor Nets Big Bloomberg Bucks

Hot on the heels of her call for a package of restrictive gun-control measures to be considered in the state legislature next session, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has received a $250,000 donation from anti-gun former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. 

As most A1F Daily readers know, billionaire Bloomberg is using his mega bucks to back anti-gun candidates throughout the country at the state and federal level. Find a candidate Bloomberg backs financially, and it’s a pretty sure bet that gun owners should vote for that candidate’s opponent

Among other proposals, Brown supports a ban on popular semi-automatic rifles that she calls “assault weapons,” as well as doing away with the three-day limit for the so-called “instant” background check, which would let the government delay gun purchases for an unlimited amount of time without cause.
