Guns: Lane County Or. passes resolution to not enforce SB941

Lane County is too cash-strapped to enforce the state’s new background check law on private gun sales, the county’s board of commissioners decided Tuesday.

After more than 90 minutes of heated debate that covered everything from the constitutional origins of the Second Amendment to the difference between the words “as” and “are” in a sentence, commissioners passed 4-1 a resolution reaffirming their support of the right to bear arms and opposition to what they call an unfunded mandate created by Senate Bill 941.

Commissioner Pete Sorenson cast the lone no vote, saying the resolution was basically an effort by the other commissioners to pander to their voter bases.
