Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee

The Oregon legislature convened on February 1 and the House Judiciary Committee has already scheduled two pro-gun bills for a public hearing on Wednesday, February 9 at 1:30 p.m. in room 343 at the Capitol. 

Your attendance is needed to help support House Bill 2787 and House Bill 2792.

HB 2787, sponsored by Representative Jeff Barker (D-28) and Kim Thatcher (R-25) would prohibit a public body from releasing information that identifies the holder of or applicant for a concealed handgun license.

HB 2792, sponsored by Representative Kim Thatcher would recognize and honor a Right-to-Carry license issued by another state when the license holder is traveling in Oregon.

If you can attend, please come early as the Capitol is short on close parking spaces.  If you would like to speak in support of HB 2787 and HB 2792, you must fill out the sign-in sheet at the door.  If you have never testified or would just like some helpful hints, please click here to check out the Citizen’s Guide to the Oregon’s Legislative Process.
