    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — About one in 15 adults in Oregon is licensed to carry a concealed handgun — up from one in 22 adults in 2010.

    The Oregonian reports the number of concealed handgun licenses increased nearly 23 percent during the first six months of this year. According to Oregon State Police figures, the increase was similar across the Portland area: 23 percent in Clackamas County, 24 percent in Washington County and 26 percent in Multnomah County.

    The surge follows the December shooting at Clackamas Town Center, which left two shoppers dead and one wounded. The number of FBI background checks for gun purchases through federally licensed dealers soared that month by 39 percent.

    Thank God and the Patriotic Conservative voters of Oregon that all of those nightmarish (Nanny Statist "one-upsmanship" with Peoples Repooplik of Kaliforniastan) proposed Oregon gun-grabbing legislation earlier this year failed across the board. Especially that attempted communist law that would have allowed draconian Fourth Amendment breaking 24/7 police "inspection" within your Oregon home to make sure your firearms were "secure" in the safe.


    Now, if only Kalifornia Governor Jerry Brown could veto this latest most draconian of all gun-grabbing bills on October 13.

    The time to call Jerry Brown is now!

    Demand a veto of all anti gun bills.

    Phone: (916) 445-2841 option 6 to go directly to a phone representative.
    Fax: (916) 558-3160

    Send a Letter, Fax and Email to the Governor: Gov. Brown: VETO Gun Control & Defend Civil Rights | Firearms Policy CoalitionFirearms Policy Coalition

    Send the Governor a message on his site: Office of Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. -
