Oregon’s 3 Candidates on Gun Control State of Oregon – Governor Canidates. Picture courtesy of Katu.com Looking on to Oregon’s November election, Oregonians will have to decide the fate of how Oregon will be either thrive or be ruined by the next Govenor of the state. The 3 candidates that are running for office are: Tina Kotek (Democrat), Betsy Johnson (Independent), and Christine Drazan (Republican). Wait one second! I know you’re ready to vote on party loyalty, but let’s see how Firearm friendly our candidates are! We are using a 1 out of 10 rating system. Starting with Oregon’s Democratic nominee, Tina Kotek is she anti-gun or pro-gun friendly? Tina’s voting record starts in 2011-2021. In 2012, House Bill (HB) 4045 Tina Voted No, not to ban public accessibility to licensed concealed handgun (C.H.L.) carriers’ information. However, 1 month later she Yes, on a concurrent vote, and votes in favor of banning public disclosure of C.H.L. carries information. So, you would assume she’s pro-2A! Democrat Nominee – Tina Kotek Voting Record Courtesy of Votesmart.org Wait, Tina’s only pro-2A when it comes to CHL privacy. After 2012, Shes voted in favor to allow Oregon counties to ban the use of dogs when controlling the cougar/mountain lion population. In 2016 a vote in favor for 10-day delay of transfer or firearm purchases, after a successful passed background check of the buyer. Most recently in 2021 has voted in favor of banning firearms on local and state property including but not limited to: hospitals, universities, any government property including parks: campgrounds, desolate properties, post offices, city halls, essentially any property owned and/or occupied by any level of government. Although we do applaud her for voting in favor of banning firearms for domestic abusers and convicted serial stalkers. Just 1 month ago, on Twitter Tina came out to say she’s in favor of further expanding background checks and supporting “Red Flag Laws” which means that the police or any government agency can come into your home at any time and confiscate your firearms, especially if you make calls for suicide or threaten to kill anyone. Additionally, while on the campaign trail Tina openly supported Oregon Ballot Measure 114 (formerly IP17), which calls for extreme gun control. Like her politics we give Tina Kotek an Anti-GUN friendly rating of 10/10 and pro-gun rating of 0/10. Independent Nominee – Betsy Johnson Voting Record Courtesy of Votesmart.org Next in line Independent Betsy Johnson. Betsy’s track record on gun control is very astute, especially being a former democrat, and getting the boot from her own political party in 2018! This is highly attractive for those moderate Conservative and moderate Liberal political voters; and a fresh of breath air for the Independent Oregon party which hasn’t had much traction since 1937 (the last Oregon Independent Governor of the state). Betsy has voted against every form of gun control and in favor of protecting constitution and 2A rights. There are some arguable votes, such as: not banning stalkers and suicidal persons from owning a gun; but for the rest of it, we feel she has a solid grip on what’s going on and what should be going on when it comes to firearms. We give Betsy Johnson an Anti-GUN friendly rating of 1/10 and pro-gun rating of 9/10. Lastly, the GOP nominee Christine Drazan. She has not had much experience in the political realm but has a voting record of being in-favor of the second amendment and not gun control. However, there are clams Christine is a RINO (republican in name only), we find this not to be true. Her voting record in terms of being pro police friendly has shown she has not voted or took an absentee vote for these ballots. This is the only gray area we have seen with her. We give Christine Drazan an Anti-GUN friendly rating of 1/10 and pro-gun rating of 7/10. Republican Nominee – Christine Drazan Voting Record Courtesy of Votesmart.org In conclusion, if you want an anti-gun candidate you know who to vote for. If you want a candidate pro-2A your best choice is going to be Betsy Johnson, then secondly Christine Drazan. Voting on party loyalty has gotten Oregon in the mess it’s in, and the USA in political term oil worldwide in the past 2 years. Oregon’s politics for the last 30+ years have been controlled by the democratic party. Since then, it’s been scandal after scandal with governors and mayors, with both the city and state turning to a cesspool of crap. If you’re a small business or big business, or a resident of the State of Oregon and tired of the: drugs, gang members, graffiti, lack of police and police response time, homelessness, road redevelopments, increased taxes, high property tax, the unethical force of vaccinations and closure of businesses, do NOT vote blue on this election, including for city of Portland commissioner positions. Like Phil Knight gave millions of dollars to Betsy Johnson and Christine Drazan’s’ campaign, we proudly endorse both Betsy and Christine – basically any other candidate than Tina Kotek. Oregon does not need a continuation of Kate Brown Politics!
