To the Oregonian, on Sen. Burdick

Subject: To the Oregonian, on Sen. Burdick

So Sen. Ginny Burdick has a new "study" that shows that over 1000 law abiding Oregonians that have a CHL may be ineligible to have them because of "criminal records". If that were the case, I would have thought that the Oregonian would have immediately investigated the story, and if true, would have blown the cover off of a major scandal involving the issuance of CHLs. Alas, it is not to be. As usual the Oregonian has taken upon itself to rely upon the hearsay of a known anti freedom bigot in the form of Sen. Burdick. The Oregonian opts to obfuscate the story, saying that the information from Sen. Burdick isn't ready for the public. Is it because the story is based upon a lie? What are the Oregonian and Sen. Burdick trying to do? Are they trying to demonize law-abiding citizens that have CHLs? For a major newspaper to ignore and fail to report the truth about law abiding citizens that have a CHL is a breach of journalistic standards that borders on the obscene. It's obvious that the agenda is to try and instill fear in the general public that law-abiding citizens that have a CHL are a menace to society. I would counter that an elected State official with an agenda and a newspaper that blindly follows that same agenda are far more dangerous.

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
