Portland is back in national news again, for all the wrong reasons.
A Multnomah County, Oregon, judge had some pretty pointed things to say about who he thought was responsible for a murder, with the murderer standing before him awaiting sentencing. This being Oregon, you've probably guessed that the judge wasn't lecturing the murderer himself. That's right, he blamed the guns for the murder.
I'll give you a moment to pick yourself up off the floor.
Judge Kenneth Walker doesn't want you to think he's anti-gun, though. He's clearly read the United States Constitution. After all, when he finally finished his rant, he said, "But it is a right of people in this country to own and possess them, and I will not say anything to affect that right."
