OSU College Republicans >UO College Republicans

The UO is not exactly known for it’s republican fervor on campus, in fact they barely exist. We have the College Republicans, who haven’t updated their blog since 2006 and are rarely seen on campus. OSU however has a College Republican group that is prominent on campus and frankly kicks ass.

The group went all out last week in it’s annual Second Amendment week celebration. To convey the awesomeness of the event I’ll leave it to the facebook event page to give a proper description.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Come join the Oregon State University College Republicans in a celebration of one of the most important rights we have as Americans.

We are officially giving away an AR-15 rifle complete with hard case, 5 magazines, and 100 rounds of ammunition! We are also giving away a Benchmade Griptilian pocket knife. Buy your drawing tickets M-F, 10-4 in the MU quad.

Guest speakers: Kevin Starrett of Oregon Firearms Federation, 4th Congressional District candidate Jaynee Germond, and nationally syndicated talk show host Lars Larson will be in the MU quad on Friday, April 16, at 12pm!

FREE for students Gun Safety / Concealed Handgun License Class: Wednesday the 14th, 6pm, Milam Hall. Cost is $40 for non-students

Anyone interested is welcome to attend. We’ll be in the quad all week!

Now Lars Larson is not my cup of tea, but a raffle to win a AR-15 that is what I’m all about. Step up your game UO College republicans.

    Claire: “although we do exist on this liberal campus”

    Every College Republicans group in the nation faces this problem.

    This is a shamelessly off-topic post, and I know you are all sick of hearing about the Pacifica Forum, but this letter should be of interest to some of you:

    I don’t see the UO CR’s handing out any guns…

    Jus’ sayin’ …

  4. […] good neighbors at the Commentator have a blog post up Check it out below/here.about the UO College Republicans. It looks like they’re trying to goad the gop establishment […]

    Thanks for the advertising Oregon Commentator!

    Yes UO College Republicans (UO CR) is a rather small group, although we do exist on this liberal campus, and we’d like to extend an invite to any Conservative, Libertarian, Republican, Independent, or Liberal who is interested in politics to come to our meetings- it usually entails a lively debate, some political news and discussion of upcoming events. (Trying to plan our annual 2nd amendment day/camping trip in May and there has been a discussion about trying to have CHL class)

    We appreciate you calling attention to the outdated blog (we will work on taking that and the outdated website down), but suggest you look at our active Facebook Fanpage: for upcoming events and news from UO CR

    We’d love to see some new faces in our meetings, say maybe some Oregon Commentator people, aren’t many of you conservative or ….? How come you don’t come?

    Tuesdays at 7 in the Metolius River room
