SALEM -- A possible militia threat is shutting down the Oregon statehouse amid an ongoing walkout by Republican lawmakers who are blocking a vote on landmark climate change legislation with their absence.
A spokeswoman for the Senate President confirmed late Friday that the "Oregon State Police has recommended that the Capitol be closed tomorrow due to a possible militia threat."

The Democrat Governor And Senate Leader threatened to bring the Repubs back at gunpoint, but its a Militia threat now?
Because antifa are left wing thugs unworthy of the title of militia.
Poor dem babies. Full diaper and no one to change it for them. Time to go home to momma.
I still say they closed because it’s Saturday. Look for the threat to pass on Monday morning.
The State Police made the claim.
Perhaps they did not care to follow the orders given them from liberal politicians?
Shutting down the legislature under almost any circumstances short of a real threat is highly stupid, as it invites more threat to the point where the legislature cannot act.
The Democrats probably think they are being crafty with a fake shutdown, so they can take the day off. Idiots.
Transparent and Lame Fraud.
Is this militia “for” or “against” cap and trade?
Surely they meant Trump storm trooper nazi brown shirts. Right?
if there really were threats, they should be defended against, yes indeed. threats are wrong.
but shutting down the Oregon legislature is an excellent idea, will help the people of Oregon... to have less of the communistic krap and oppressive laws and regulations... dumped on their heads!
....... So there may be a ..... "Possible" ..... threat ..... OK ..... Got it ......
Anything to keep the government from doing more damage.
If liberals didn't have double standards, they wouldn't have any at all.
It seems, in this case, that the militia is functioning exactly as intended.
Possible threat? Weasel words.
Is there a threat or is there not a threat?
If the militia was truly a threat, these traitors would already be hanging from the light posts. Trust me, if and when that time comes, there will be no mistaking it.
We will forcefully bring you back with gun to head to vote and you better vote our way
The state police are probably laughing their butts off.
They got to shut down the entire state government for a day with their warning.
