SALEM, Ore. -- In the largest public response to a ballot title in recent memory, the state received more than 1,000 comments decrying the description of an initiative to restrict the sale, production and ownership of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. "No one can remember anywhere near the number of comments being received for any other (initiative petition)," said Deb Royal, chief of staff in the Secretary of State's office.
The state Attorney General's office is responsible for drafting ballot titles. IP 43's reads: "Criminalizes possession or transfer of 'assault weapons' (defined) or 'large capacity magazines' (defined), with exceptions." Commenters wrote that the ballot title is unclear, misleading, incomplete, politicized and shouldn't use the term "assault weapon" for various reasons.
Others wrote about the initiative more broadly, saying the concept is unconstitutional, unnecessary, unenforceable, an attack on civil liberties and would turn law-abiding citizens into criminals overnight.
According to the Secretary of State, 1,060 comments on Initiative Petition 43 were submitted in the two-week open comment period that ended May 8. Another 35 were received after the comment period closed.
The most comments any other petition received this cycle was 10, Royal said.
Some commenters have already pledged to appeal the ballot title. Resolution of these cases often take between two and six months, and petitioners cannot begin gathering signatures until an appeal is complete.
Knutson said they are preparing a signature gathering campaign that will launch statewide as soon as they are legally allowed to do so. They aren't expecting to have much time.
