“I ran for office to invest in our classrooms and to work on policies that protect the health and safety of our community. Since taking office in January, I’ve had the opportunity to work and vote on numerous bills that will improve the lives of all Oregonians. I’m proud of everything we’ve accomplished since the start of the session. Unfortunately, a fringe group has started a recall effort against me over my support of a bill that will close the background checks loophole for private gun sales . . .
“I believe that this bill will save lives by ensuring that this gaping loophole isn’t used to put guns into the hands of criminals, domestic abusers, and people with severe mental illness. I fully support the 2nd Amendment, and I believe that this is a common sense policy that will make our community safer while still protecting the rights of gun owners.” – Oregon Rep. Susan McLain in Gun advocates hit three Oregon lawmakers with recall petitions — warn more could be coming (at oregonlive.com)
