Most Republicans in the Oregon Senate abandoned the Capitol earlier this month because, they said, the summaries of certain bills are too difficult to read.

They’re right.

Great post, Jayson. And to get a little off of the point of your article, let me add something else. That is fine if Democrats and their war on the Second Amendment want to change the law to require being 21 years old to purchase a gun. However, how can we expect an 18 year old to serve in the military and use weapons to defend our country, but ironically make it illegal for them to buy a gun? If they are going to change the law from 18 to 21, the liberal Snowflakes need to also change the minimum age to serve in the military to 21. That is common sense. And maybe these people can volunteer to take the place of these younger people. They must come up with a solution.
