Oregon legislators give up on semiauto ban, magazine ban, keep background checks

Honestly, we knew this was the game from the beginning.  Gun control advocates would take as much as they can get, but they didn't really expect to pass another semi-auto ban nationally, and even at the state level it could be difficult. 

They introduced those draconian bills to give them political cover when voting for what they really want: a ban on private firearm sales between law-abiding citizens.  They want the government to know who buys a gun, no matter who they buy it from, and they are willing to give up the other items on their agenda to get it.

It's up to us to make sure they don't.
