egon Gov.John Kitzhaber is one of two politicians at the heart of its first foray into the 2014election season. Everytown for Gun Safety said Tuesday it will air television ads in the Portland market featuring Paul Kemp, the brother-in-law of ClackamasTownCenter shooting victim Steve Forsyth. Kempcalls for expanded background checks on gun buyers andsays he's supporting Kitzhaber. Kitzhaber has unsuccessfully urged state lawmakers to support tougher gun laws, including a requirement for a background check. Authorities said the gun in the 2012Clackamas mall shooting was stolen.
