In a post-legislative session press conference on March 3, Democratic Oregon Gov. Kate Brown expressed her disappointment in stalled gun-control legislation and promised to address “gun safety” … using the anti-gunners’ favorite euphemism for “gun control.” She then vowed that she would be “working to develop legislation for the 2017 session and explore what might be achieved using my executive powers.”
Her two-pronged approach: keeping guns out of the hands of “harmful folks” and out of the hands of those with mental health issues. However, when pressed for specifics as to how she would achieve those goals, the head of state seemed at a loss for words and could only muster up an “uh” or “um” as a response.
Brown signed off on anti-gun legislation in May 2015 when she approved SB 941, a bill calling for so-called “universal” background checks and registration.
