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.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
