I just live South of the border and I am planning on moving to Oregon, after my wife finish some schooling in about 2 years. The only thing that is bad in Oregon is that they charge a $70. per year registration fees. All RCs should move to ORE.

this state should be held as an example that registration laws are completely arbitrary impositions and purposeless restraints on people who are trying to get their lives back…where’s the statistics that Oregon has a problem with sex offenders or increased sexual assault or higher recidivism rates…there is no increase in recidivism or sexual assaults therefore absolutely no increase in public safety making the laws completely irrational and counterproductive and arbitrary…

I’ve mentioned on this forum Oregon & Minnesota as alternatives for registrants until my face turned blue. Why look at moving overseas to some 3rd word country like Mexico or the Philippines? Plus US government warnings have increasingly made other countries hostile to registrants. Oregon & Minnesota only lists the most severe of the severe on their public websites. Not being listed on a state’s public site is 3/4 of the battle for registrants because everything (including private ‘family’ sites) hooks up to state sites. Employers & Renters check the state sites. Now if 90% of registrants aren’t listed on the Oregon site, your whole life becomes a lot easier. Oregon has no sales tax. Portland & Eugene are great cities to live. Only drawback of Oregon is its pricey real estate but not for Californians who are already used to high land prices. And just like in California, the inland desert areas of Oregon are cheaper to live. Think Bend, Klamath Falls or Pendleton.
Oregon is a great place no matter how you cut it

BTW, I failed to mention that the author of this article is a complete jerk. He could have used this chance to prove that there are some conservatives who respect other parts of the constitution besides gun rights. Unfortunately, the Oregon Catalyst and this contributing writer get a big fat F.

Minnesota, or Oregon are nice states, Arkansas does not list level 1 RSOs on their public site, but as some have said Oregon can be expensive, and there is a chance they could change the laws unless enough RCs ran for office. In the long run try and help change your states law where you live. I wonder about being able to take the kids to school, does Oregon allow that?

comments on this article were great , Thomas Madison was on point for real , and many other commenters where great , they set the form up easy as well , not having a face book was not a problem ,

there are great comments in the to the article. people are slowly waking up. i think when any news article comes out about the hit list all so’s everywhere needs to start commenting and thus if 20 people comment and say the hit list is no good well others will join in on the band wagon.

Good points everybody. Oregon is not perfect, and real estate costs are pretty high for someone coming out of the Southwest, Midwest & most southern states. However, other costs like food, clothing, and utilities are pretty reasonable along with fresh produce coming out of the Willamette Valley. The state is just an alternative….not an end all solution. Plus I really don’t buy ‘the influx of registrants result in more laws & restrictions’ argument. I haven’t seen much evidence of this in other states. In fact, states like Minnesota & Massachusetts have softened their stance on rcs along with population growth. Arizona & Nevada did some recent changes making public info available, but it had little to do with registrant population growth, and more to do with political opportunists

As far as Oregon lawmakers making changes after learning their state has become a haven for registrants……I think that ship has sailed. Lawmakers did do some changes couple years back creating a tier system based on risk, and the new system actually added more high risk offenders to the public site, but the bipartisan bill kept within the mission of the registry of publishing only the worst of the worst (2.5%) of registrants

Think about. What lawmaker would go on record introducing a law that makes available to the public information on 97% of the registrant population of the state? Real-Estate, agricultural, and other industries would end the career of any lawmaker who does it. Realtors don’t want their property values falling, Landlords don’t want to lose tenants. Employers don’t want to lose good workers. Right now, the status quo says don’t ask, don’t tell. But once info is public, landlords and employers have to act out of concerns of others worked up by fear & hysteria. Politicians like the late Sharron Runner & Melissa Melendez could afford to risk their careers because California has always been publicly listing & discriminating against registrants.

But Oregon has never let the genie out of the bottle and if they did, it would amount to nothing short of upheaval, and lost faith & trust in politicians who are suppose to ‘protect the safety of the public’ Questions would be posed as to why they didn’t warn the public earlier? I believe that’s why Oregon hasn’t made any drastic changes and any lawmaker hasn’t proposed any bills. Media opportunists & victims rights’ groups will continue to push the issue, but their pleas will fall on death ears.

Last summer, I drove up to visit a friend who moved to Duluth. The city is incredibly beautiful built on hills surrounding a bay. Lot’s of greenery there especially compared to the southwest where I now live.
I spent a little time in the Twin Cities……it’s almost like a foreign country with all the immigrants especially Minneapolis. I don’t mean to stereotype, but no telling what they would find on immigrants from Somalia, Sudan, East Asia if they made the entire Minnesota registry public. Some sex offense practices illegal in America are legal in many other places of the world. Nevertheless, I like Minnesota, I just couldn’t live in the Cities. But Duluth would be good if I could bear the winters
