Two bills sponsored by gun control extremist Senator Ginny Burdick (D-Portland) may soon be on the move! 

SB 335 would allow local school districts to gut the state firearms preemption law and ban the possession of all firearms by Concealed Handgun Licensees for any reason on school property, or where any school-sponsored event is taking place.  

SB 954 is a gun-tax bill, which aims to make up shortfalls in parts of the state budget on the backs of law-abiding gun owners.  It increases the fee for fingerprinting a Concealed Handgun License applicant (from $15 to $22) and for transferring a firearm under Oregon`s instant check system (from $10 to $25).  Please contact your State Senators and urge them to oppose SB 335 and SB 954.  For Senate contact information, please visit www.leg.state.or.us/senate/
