REDMOND, OR -- A pro gun-rights rally is planned for Redmond Saturday. Sharon Preston, with the Oregon Firearms Federation, says it’s part of a greater effort to show support for the Second Amendment. "It’s called #WeSupport2," she tells KBND News, "It’s put on by the Oregonians for Firearms Education; it’s also being put on by women all over the state. At the same time, you’re going to have one in Sandy, Eugene, Medford, Portland, Salem, Pendleton, and of course, Redmond."
She says the events are a show of opposition to a state proposal that would restrict gun ownership. "We’re going to have some great speakers lined up; and also, we’re also hoping we’ll have a petition you can sign. It’s an initiative for the Deschutes County Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance, which has already been passed in Coos, Curry, Wallowa, Wheeler and Josephine [counties’], and it’ll be on the November ballot for Columbia [County]." That petition is for a Deschutes County initiative called the "Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance."
The local #WeSupport2 rally takes place Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Redmond's City Hall. Click HERE
