Oregon And Washington Groups Push Semi-Auto Gun Bans To Erect “West Coast Wall”

posted on July 30, 2016

Anti-gun groups in Oregon and Washington state hope to gather enough signatures in the next six to nine months to pressure lawmakers to ban semi-automatic so-called “assault weapons” in the two states, as California has already done, Q13 Fox reports

“Creating a West Coast wall of California, Oregon and Washington is necessary to stop would-be shooters,” said Penny Okamoto of Ceasefire Oregon, which together with Washington Ceasefire is pushing the gun bans, along with bans on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. 

Although they point to the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, Calif., as justification for their proposed bans, they don’t address the fact that those killers weren’t stopped by California’s anti-gun laws any more than the terrorist shooters in Paris and Munich were stopped by their countries’ gun bans.
