...and they don't like it!
I received another e-mail from the Oregon Firearms Federation. Keep in mind, this group usually does NOT endorse candidates. This gubernatorial race has been a big exception. Today's release:

ELECTION UPDATE FROM OFFPAC 05/11/06
If you have a TV in your home, you've no doubt been subjected to the attacks that Kevin Mannix and Ron Saxton have been exchanging.
You have probably also noticed that the one pro-gun candidate in the race has not been part of the mud slinging.
A recent poll has indicated, that in spite of what you may have guessed by watching the mainstream press, the race is a virtual dead heat and Jason Atkinson is very much in the running.
If you have not yet returned your ballot, we urge you to vote for Senator Atkinson, the only candidate with a proven record of supporting gun rights.
There are still lots of ballots out there, and your vote is critical.
Please take a moment to lend your support to a true friend of gun owners, Jason Atkinson.
Folks, isn't time Oregon elected not just a Republican governor, but a governor who isn't part of the same-old same-old political machine that has given us a never ending stream of both Kulongoskis and Saxton-Mannixes?
End the mudslinging. Elect JASON ATKINSON.
