Reading Blue Oregon, progressive newsletter on August 13, I first hear of another of the state's little cities that has a say in governance of the entire state. [Similar problem for New York City.]
Harrisburg, Oregon, website describes itself as "... perfect compromise between rural and urban America." Population 6,300. Blue O describes school board member defending idea of some employees carrying weapons in schools--but not teachers. Sigh.
One commenter with a sense of humor--we could use more of that though not often around this issue--posted a link to this 2006 videoTube with rural America in mind.
Three days later, an Oregonian headline, "City's loaded-gun ban upheld," noted the decision by the Oregon Supreme Court that Portland's ordinance which prohibits carrying loaded guns in public places does not violate someone's right to bear arms. Reassuring except how would I know in travel around the state unless I kept a checklist?
So, I do not understand why these goons were able to prance around in front of Portland's City Hall during a Ceasefire Oregon rally. Unnerved me, old urban feminist grandma. Rally was this year in February. How does the Portland ordinance work in real time?
