Oregon: Your Attendance is Needed at Hearing in Central Point Next Week to Oppose Gun Tax Increase!

Friday, June 4, 2010

The Oregon State Police (OSP) is currently reviewing possible fee increases for services provided by the agency, including conducting background checks on firearms purchasers.  State law currently mandates that the buyer must pay the $10 fee for this service, and OSP maintains records on individuals cleared for purchases. NRA-ILA strongly opposes OSP's proposal to nearly TRIPLE that fee to $28, as well as the agency's plan to continue registering legal firearms purchasers.  

Please attend the meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 10, from 12:00pm-2:00pm in the Training Room at Oregon State Police SW Region Headquarters, located at 4500 Rogue Valley Highway in Central Point, and voice your objections to the tax increase and continuing to register lawful gun buyers.  (Because this is a widespread review of all OSP services, fingerprint processing fees for Concealed Handgun License applicants are also being examined for a similar hike.)  Please click on the following link for information about additional upcoming meeting dates, times and locations across the state in June: http://www.oregon.gov/OSP/ID/docs/Regional_Meeting_Schedule.pdf
