No-guns policy to be enforced at forum over Oregon standoff

BURNS, Ore. – Authorities say they’ll strictly enforce a no-guns policy at a community meeting Monday over the standoff at an Oregon wildlife refuge.

Harney County Judge Steve Grasty said in a news release the meeting will be limited to 150 ticketed attendees, and it will be held at the county senior center — instead of on school grounds. School district officials became upset about the number of firearms at last week’s forum, and they decided they would no longer host the meetings.

An armed group led by Ammon Bundy has been occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge since Jan. 2 to protest federal land use policies. Oregon lawmakers have been increasing their pressure on federal authorities to step in and end the occupation.

    I dont think they can legally ban guns from this meeting. What are THEY afraid of????

    • bobnstuff

      If it’s on private property they can, we still have some rights left when it comes to guns. They are afraid of nut jobs that would that over government land and hold it with force.

  • Smitch

    This is about the Constitution and the Federal Government abuse of power exploiting the States Land!

    • bobnstuff

      See above statement.

      • Smitch

        Of coarse they want to ban firearms! The duck shoot will be easier when the ducks don’t have firearms and can’t fire back at them!

        • bobnstuff

          They just want to keep those fools from killing each other. Even Dodge City had a gun ban.

          • Smitch

            Waiting for the facts! Right now it appears the feds did all the shooting and not just three rounds the the media reports! Time will tell…remember Benghazi?

          • bobnstuff

            In this case the dead man was a jerk. he wanted a fight and had said he would die before he let himself be placed in custody. He got his wish. There is most likely video.

          • Smitch

            What about the cover-up in Benghazi?

          • bobnstuff

            You mean the one created by Fox News? If anyone other the Hillary had been involved this story would have gone away after the first week. Look at the history of attacks on embassies, non have had this much time spent on them. The master mind has been caught and is in jail. He said that they did use the film as a cover for their actions so that part of the story turned out to be right. Do you know just how many attacks on embassies we have had over the years, every president since WW II has had at least one.

            Typical Liberal gas! Tell the to the Families of the four dead American’s! What pethetic lump of Crap!

          • bobnstuff

            You care so much about those four dead people, do you care as much about the 4000 dead in a war for oil? Do you care as much for the 8 children that died last night from gun shots? How about the children at Sandy Hook? Do you care about the 40 people killed by drunk drivers yesterday? I’m sure Fox cares about them, not. Life is cheap here in America. You will only care if someone like Fox News tells you to.

          • Smitch

            How killed these people? You have names are they arrested? You are a Liberal and will never understand the people and the facts that you don’t agree with. Life is cheap however I will not be a victim of the low-life sh_t-heads in the society today! I will protect my Family, Friend and myself…yes that will be with one of many firearms I own and I will do what ever it takes to survive. The dead children you speak of at Sandy Hook are dead from the fuc_ed-up liberal way of thinking…yes I am speaking of “Gun Free Killing Zones”. A Good-Guy with a gun could have put a bullet in that lump of sh_t Adam! And futher more they should have lynched his lifeless waste of skin dead body up in town square and let the flies and maggots dispose of his body! The drunk driver’s need to be put in prison not ban the vehicles. The vehicles are a tool just as a firearm is! Yes you won’t think of it that way! Enough of you wasting my time…I am done with you Bob! Have a great life and enjoy the Liberal way!

            You don’t get it. These kids are in places where good guys like you wouldn’t go and if you did how would you stop a drive by. It’s also people with guns shooting people with guns and these kids just get in the way. I could care less if you think your guns make you safe. I have no problems with sane people having guns but I don’t want people who hear voices in their heads having guns and I don’t think people who have criminal records should have guns. I think if you are going to carry a gun around people you should have to pass a test to prove you know what you are doing. I don’t think that’s to much to ask. My question is why is Congress wasting time trying to nail Hillary and not taking time to try to find a way to save these children. Hillary didn’t kill these four people. The guy who was responsible for that is in jail. In case you don’t know but the secretary of state is not in charge of security. That job belongs to the station chief. The only reason to call Hillary that night was to let her know what was going down. Think about it, is Hillary a security expert, she a lawyer. Here’s a question for you. Why do we have rent a cops doing the job that real Marines once did. From what I understand it was Reagan that made the change. Also you are more likely to be shot by someone you know then by a stranger and someone you love is more likely to kill themselves with your gun then to be shot by someone else. My guns are unloaded and locked up at all times unless they are in my hand.

    It’s funny that they are complaining about grazing rights when the government has opened more land for grazing in the last few years. It’s about money, they want the land for free. They aren’t talking about buying the land, they just want it. It costs the government 3 times what they get in grazing fees to maintain the land. I wish I could own a business where I got the factory for free, that’s what these guys want. George Washington would have sent in the National Guard by now and explained what a well regulated militia really is.

    • teaman

      How about the fact that this land should not be in the hands of the Gooberment in the first place. Your Gooberment has been nothing but a bunch of thugs for years grabbing land and property by any means possible. There is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that gives the Gooberment the right to own land. The Land of this Nation belongs to the people. If and when there is land where it is believed it should be in the hands of the Gooberment for protection, then “IN ALL CASES” it should be voted on by the people and not stolen!!

      • bobnstuff

        You do know the one of the reasons for our government was to promote the common good and that this land was not stolen. I guess American history is not your strong suit.

        • teaman

          Evidently you never learned that the Gooberment has never been interested in the common good. Only in political favors and promoting thieving bureaucrats. Fact is, “good” only comes from the people and the Gooberment only does it when forced or there is a favors to feed.

          • bobnstuff

            Government for the people and by the people, I believe this is why we have a government. Do everyone a favor and stop using government services. Don’t drive on the government roads, don’t drink the government protected water and don’t breath the government protected air. Don’t eat the food that the government tries to keep safe for you and never call 911 for services. Give back all the money with the name of the government on it since it is backed by the faith of the government only. Also misspelled words is not cute, it just makes you look simple.

          • teaman

            You are ridicules! Everything you mentioned is paid for by the people whose money has been stolen and it’s expenditure has been way more waste than good. You need to wakeup.

          • nonstopca

            BOB….YOU need a reality check……REAL bad…

        • marlio

          It was taken by Theodore Roosevelt and was supposed to be given back after WWII and he didn’t do it!!!! Government cannot own land!!!

      You must be thinking about a different George Washington than the one that I’ve heard so much about.

      • bobnstuff

        Ever heard of how he handled the Whiskey Rebellion?

      They want the land because it has minerals, and possibly even gold and of course water and grazing land for, I dont know, the cattle they have there. Well it belongs to the owners, who have been paying taxes on it for 150 years and the State of Oregon. The Government is supposed to own any land other than the 10 acres washington dc, sits on!!! They are trying to STEAL the land!!!!

      • bobnstuff

        Also the state government doesn’t want the land, it costs to much to maintain.

    they need to leave, stop trying to ruin a good thing, nobody wants more cattle ranchers to be running their nasty cattle all over the lands, they need to stop pushing everybody around.
