Weigh the issues before you vote


This just in: The 2018 FBI “Crime in the US” report includes these facts: Robbery is down 12 percent from 2017; murders fell 6.2 percent.

Contrary to media bias, even as the number of firearms increased, crime declined. Rifles of all types were used in less than 2 percent of homicides. So, rifles, slandered in political meetings and media, resulted in fewer deaths than knives (11 percent), hands, fists and feet (5 percent) and blunt objects (3 percent).

Crime stat trackers continue to combine homicides and suicides to create a false account of “gun violence.”

Oregon is the nation’s first and, under Democrat dominance, a militant sanctuary state. Sanctuary policies are illegal and deadly. There are now 22 million people in the U.S.A illegally (source: Harvard University). How do these individuals behave in the crime department? Non-U.S. citizens committed 42.7 percent of all U.S. federal crimes in 2018.

Now Oregon Democrats would have you (a) clamp ball-and-chain hardware on your Second Amendment guns and (b) pay jacked-up taxes so whoever comes across the state line illegally will live free off the “fat” of your skinny land.

How’s that working out in (third world) California?

Consider these things before you receive your next Oregon ballot.
