12th and Newport and 12th and Galveston. NOT Wilson and 9th. I've been at that intersection weekly. Doesn't begin to compare with them 12th Street problems

try going down Reed, when there is a train blocking the 9th St traffic from Wilson and 9th.

Bear Creek and Pettigrew. So many accidents in evenings with sunsets and people running stop sign facing west blinding sun.

Butler Market and Wells Acres. Very unsafe intersection for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians

The intersection of SW Canal and Salmon in Redmond could really use one.

As many as possible, my personal pick for the next roundabout is Main st and North 3rd st in Prineville. My second pick Harwood and NW 3rd in Prineville, then Elm and NE 3rd and Combs Flat and NE 3rd. We should leave the stoplights at Deer and NW 3rd as a historical landmark, maybe put up a plaque.

The only way to put roundabouts at those intersections means that existing buildings on all four corners would have to be demolished. Goodbye Bowman Museum.

O.B. Riley and Empire please! Cars are pulling out further and further into the road way. turning left onto empire is hazardous. Not to mention it is right next to the ODOT yard and they are already working on improving the sidewalks. The city and ODOT work together?????

Roundabouts are a mess if they are anywhere near a railroad crossing, as people who cannot get around the roundabout will sit right in the middle of it, and stop everyone else, trying to go in the other 3 directions. What a mess!

Blocking intersections should earn you a ticket, same with roundabouts. Sounds like the DMV needs to educate drivers better about roundabout use.

I am a senior citizen living in a senior park between Wilson and Reed Market Road. I never use Reed Market as I can't figure out when I can go. I can handle single lane round abouts. Thank heavens the roundabouts on Wilson are going to be single lane or I would have to quit driving.

More roundabouts everywhere but can't fix Reed Market and Bond or the 97 Couplet vs pedestrian problem. Are you kidding me.

Reed Market from Bond to 15th is a joke.

75% of the time we stay in our part of town. We do go downtown since we have a wider selection there but it is not as convenient.

Assault Rifles are already banned . . . as they should be! Or at least they should require special (stamp) permits at federal and state levels, as it already is. Now if you're asking if semi-auto sporting rifles should be banned, the answer is NO!

Armed forces should be the only ones allowed to have assault rifles. They are for one thing only: to kill humans. Hunters don't use them, and they are not needed for self protection unless you are in the middle of a war where there are several people that want to take your life.

There is absolutely no reason for assault rifles to be as readily available as they are. I support our rights as a gun owner myself, but this type of weapon is simply unnecessary. In light of the violence in our country, they should only be accessible in a controlled environment.

Why should anyone besides law enforcement need to own or have them? They can not be used for hunting purposes or any thing else. Why use them to kill children and anyone for that matter!! What has this world came too?

Certain types of guns have no purpose other than the mass killing of other human beings. You don't need an assault rifle to kill deer or protect your property. I don't think all guns should be banned as they can be used for hunting or protecting your property. But we do need more mental healthcare

The 2nd Amendment was not about hunting, it was specifically to keep any despotic power in check... to protect the rights of American citizens against enemies foreign and domestic. See Australian COVID lockdowns from last year, that is why we need semi-auto rifles (they are not assault rifles)

Guns don't kill people? By that logic, neither do nuclear weapons. Maybe one will randomly fall from the sky in the general vicinity of Congress so the new congress might FINALLY do something

Of course, you could always be attacked by a vicious herd of deer. And what else could the biggest cowards hide behind? Maybe the deaths of the innocents is less important than fear of the emasculated.

I just do not see the need to own a assault rifle. I’m all for self defense and hunting but those automatic weapons are for military use. Imo.

1st of all, an ignorant titled thread. These are not "assault rifles", these are semi-auto sporting rifles. 2nd, after the BLM/Floyd riots, and Australian COVID lockdowns, the need for full 2nd Amendment protection has never been so important.

Deaths by all rifles are a tiny % of firearm-related deaths in this country, and mass shootings account for .5% of homicides. I'm opposed to stripping away gun ownership rights of law-abiding citizens, while turning a blind eye to the thousands who die in Democrat-run cities from their policies.
