Straight-faced man makes epic mockery of city council over gun ban

Some Oregon elected officials considering a ban on loaded guns in public were mocked mercilessly for the proposal.

An Ashland, Ore., resident on Monday used “satire to point out the idiocy of the proposed ordinance” to City Council members, according to a video posted by Guns Save Lives.

Oregon is an open-carry state, which means no license is required unless carrying a concealed firearm.

The city of Portland passed its own ordinance prohibiting loaded guns in public places, and the Oregon Supreme Court upheld the law, according to the ABA Journal.

Ashland is proposing a ban similar to Portland’s, the Ashland Daily Tidings reported.

The resident speaking before the City Council said he represents Citizens for a Really Safe Ashland, explaining that his group wants to “capitalize on the desire to act in a timely manner, or even in a knee-jerk, expedited manner, to introduce a comprehensive public safety ordinance that, while perhaps not actually addressing any genuine or legitimate issues, does serve to promote a divisive and partisan agenda.”

He then offered a few suggestions on how to make the city “really safe.”

The group “mocks knee-jerk gun control laws to the point of absurdity,” Dan Cannon wrote in Guns Save Lives. “How he kept a straight face the entire time is beyond me.”
