Friday, April 5 at 8:30am, a multitude of anti-gun bills will be heard in the Oregon state Senate Judiciary Committee. These bills attempt to create a “solution” to a non-existent problem and instead create a new class of criminals amongst otherwise law-abiding citizens.
Senate Bill 347 – Makes it a Class C Felony for a concealed handgun license (CHL) holder to carry a firearm onto school grounds unless the school district or other entity controlling the school grounds has an adopted written policy authorizing an exemption for CHL holders.
Senate Bill 699 – Bans concealed handgun license (CHL) holders from carrying in the state Capitol unless they receive written permission from the Legislative Administrator.
Senate Bill 700 – Criminalizes private transfers of firearms with others, excluding immediate family. Such background checks would either have to be conducted directly through the Department of State Police or through a licensed gun dealer, who may charge an unspecified fee. What’s more, the Department of State Police would be required to maintain the background information they obtain for a period of five years! Such “universal background checks” are enforced by gun registration that enables future gun confiscation.
Senate Bill 796 – Requires that an individual applying for a Concealed Handgun License must first “pass” a comprehensive firing range test.
Various amendments have been proposed for all four Senate bills but do little to compensate the attack on law-abiding gun owners.
Please call AND e-mail members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE these bills.
