The Jackson County Board of Commissioners are moving forward with an Ordinance to further protect Second Amendment right their County area.  They are joining multiply counties in rural Oregon who have created local laws to confront State & Federal anti-gun activists.

On June 9, 2021 The Jackson County Board of Commissioners had a first reading of an ordinance amendment to protect the Second Amendment Constitutional Rights of Jackson County Residents. In the next step of the process, the Commissioners will hold the second reading of the Ordinance at a public hearing.

It’s a solid move by county commissioners Coleen Roberts, Rick Dyer and Dave Dotterer to support citizens that own firearms in Jackson County.  The action adds Section 216.24 to Section 216, setting the County’s policy related to proposed State or Federal legislation which violates the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article 1, Section 27, of the Oregon Constitution. The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States provides that “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Article 1, Section 27 of the Oregon Constitution provides that “The people shall have the right to bear arms for the defense [sic] of themselves, and the State.”

The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, June 23, 2021, at 9:30 a.m. by video conference. If adopted on June 23, 2021, the Ordinance will become effective on August 23, 2021.
