Synopsis and Benefit to Jackson County
Chapter 216 of the Codified Ordinances of Jackson County establishes the position of County Administrator who is responsible to the Board of County Commissioners for the administration and management of the County, except as otherwise provided by the County Charter. It has been determined that it is necessary to amend Chapter 216 to add Section 216.24 to set forth the County’s policy related to proposed State or Federal legislation which violates the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and Article 1, Section 27, of the Oregon Constitution.
The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States provides that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Article 1, Section 27, of the Oregon Constitution provides that “the people shall have the right to bear arms for the defence [sic] of themselves, and the State.”
The Legislative Assembly of the State of Oregon and the Congress of the United States have in the past, are currently, and are likely in the future to consider legislation which impacts and infringes on the right of the people to bear arms as is guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States and the Oregon Constitution.
The Jackson County Board of Commissioners has the right and obligation to adopt policies for the County through ordinances which uphold their oaths as elected officials to support the Constitution of the United States and the Oregon Constitution. The Jackson County Board of Commissioners desires to reaffirm and support the right of the people to bear arms set forth in the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and Article 1, Section 27, of the Oregon Constitution by not supporting the adoption of any laws or regulations which infringe upon the rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States and the Oregon Constitution.
