Concealed Carry Permits are Increasing Throughout Oregon After Portland Riots

Published

on

Thanks to recent riots in Portland, Oregon, concealed carry permit applications have surged across the state.

Washington county officials said that they’re receiving more applicants than any other time in the past 15 years.

Bryan Mumford, CEO and lead instructor of PDX Arsenal, has seen business explode as concealed handgun license (CHL) classes have been “growing exponentially” ever since the Wuhan virus pandemic started.

“I was doing maybe one or two classes a week at the beginning of everything,” Mumford commented. “I’m doing three or four now.”

According to Mumford, his classes have complied with social-distancing and sanitation requirements. His students are now forced to wait much longer than expected to obtain their CHLs.  This is largely due to a surge in demand and multiple months of closure of sheriff’s offices caused by public policies implemented during the Wuhan virus pandemic.

The aforementioned Washington County reopened CHL processing at the beginning of June. Since its reopening, the county has experienced an increase in the number of new applicants at a level that one supervisor has not seen in 15 years working inside of the department.

Additionally, Multnomah County witnessed a significant 692 new applications in June. By contrast, the previous five months experienced 316 new applications on a monthly basis.

Mumford also observed that the Wuhan virus pandemic wasn’t the only factor contributing to the delay in applications. In addition, he’s noted an increase of new applicants, which could likely be due to significant “uncertainty” surrounding politics and the present administration.

“That’s one thing that we don’t ever bring up in class is politics or things like that,” Mumford commented.

Mumford believes the backlog in applications isn’t going away anytime soon.

“To be honest, business only seems to be getting busier for me,” he commented. Summer is usually Mumford’s slow month. So, if fall and winter end up being the busy months as expected, Mumford doesn’t see the processing backlog going way for at least six months.

Due to these developments, Mumford tells prospective students to begin the process now.

“If they play the waiting game with the assumption that things are going to slow down, they’re going to be waiting even later,” he declared.

It’s become very clear that Americans across the nation are getting armed at record rates.

Republican politicians should take note and campaign hard on the Second Amendment in a time when there is so much uncertainty and public distrust of institutions.

NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor

Published

on

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.

Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
