After receiving a red, white & blue postcard from “A Just Right PAC” (adjust right) regarding Measure 29-161, I became a bit confused on the issue. I was ready to vote yes but they threw a bit of doubt into the equation.

After viewing their website, contacting them via e-mail and rereading the measure, it seems that A Just Right is concerned about public safety, they are not about the 2nd Amendment or protecting our rights under the 2nd Amendment.

You say "The measure does not restrict law enforcement from enforcing current firearm laws already on the books" but you are clearly wrong. The ordinance draft posted on the County website clearly says that "All local, state and federal acts, laws, rules, or regulations, originating from jurisdictions outside of Tillamook County" related to firearms or ammo are 'Extraterritorial Acts'. Then it says all of those 'Extraterritorial Acts' "shall be treated as if they are null, void, and of no effect in Tillamook County".

So, how many ordinances are actually on Tillamook County's local regulations? As far as I know County rules are primarily about land use and other 'local' topics - I doubt a single Tillamook-County-specific firearm ordinance exists.

Thus, the "sanctuary" actually turns Tillamook into "anything goes, bring your machine guns and play with them like toys because no laws apply".
