Oregon is generally viewed as one of the bluest states in the nation. One should look no further than to its gun laws to understand why.
For example, earlier in 2021 the Oregon state government passed a mandatory gun storage law. The law was met with considerable opposition from two counties (Yamhill and Harney) that passed two nullification ordinances that gave the counties the power to not enforce the state law.
Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms observed that “the measures go so far as to allow for civil lawsuits against individual officers and deputies who attempt to enforce the law.”
