Benefit Dinner for Jeff Maxwell

The Oregon Firearms Federation has just announced a benefit dinner for Jeff Maxwell – the victim of Western Oregon University’s unconstitutional and illegal (under Oregon law) firearms policy and their kangaroo student court. In order to be reinstated, Maxwell must submit to a "psychiatric evaluation" for the "crime" of being a law abiding firearm owner. The Oregon Firearms Federation has defended Maxwell thus far and is now preparing a lawsuit on his behalf.

According to the announcement:

"We'd like you to join OFEF, Jeffrey Maxwell and Oregon legislators who have stepped up to stop the kinds of abuses Jeffrey suffered at the hands of WOU.

"On March 11th, at 6PM, OFEF will host a dinner for Jeffery at the Red Lion Hotel in Salem, Oregon. (3301 Market Street ) Tickets are only $50.00 per person. A no-host bar will be available. Seating is limited so please respond by March 3rd.To reserve your seat, please use this
link. In the drop-down menu that says "Choose One" please select "Oregon Firearms Educational Foundation." Select "$50.00" for one person, or "Other Amount" and a multiple of $50.00 for more than one person. In the box that says "OFF Merchandise Ordered" please put "Maxwell Dinner."(This is required for a reservation.)"

For more details, see the OFF pages linked above.

I urge everyone who is able to support Jeff through this trying time. I know the economy is bad and money is tight, but even if you can’t afford the $50 to attend the dinner, please consider supporting OFF’s legal fund. Jeff’s plight could very easily be the plight of any law-abiding gun owner in Oregon, and it’s past time that these abuses of power and the blatant disrespect for our constitutionally affirmed rights ENDS!

Until next time!!!
