Oregon Senate Judiciary Committee to Hold Second Hearing on Pro-Gun Bills Tomorrow

Monday, May 2, 2011

Tomorrow, May 3, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding another hearing on House Bill 2787, House Bill 2792, and House Bill 2797 in Room 343 at 8:45 a.m.  As reported last week, these bills are facing dangerous amendments.  Although amendments were not presented at last week's hearing, we still believe they are pending.  The hearing on April 28 was full of anti-gun activists who obviously coordinated their efforts.  It is vital that NRA members continue to contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and politely urge them to oppose amendments. 

House Bill 2787A Engrossed, sponsored by state Representatives Jeff Barker (D-28) and Kim Thatcher (R-25), would prohibit a public body from releasing personal information that identifies the holder of or applicant for a Concealed Handgun License.

House Bill 2792 A-Engrossed, also sponsored by Representative Kim Thatcher, would allow non-residents who are authorized to carry concealed a handgun in another state with the same protections provided to persons with an Oregon Concealed Handgun License.  This legislation is an important recognition of non-residents’ right to self-defense while visiting Oregon and the realization that out-of-state permit holders should not be considered criminals simply for crossing state lines.

House Bill 2797 A-Engrossed, sponsored by state Representatives Kim Thatcher and Greg Smith (R-57), would describe “readily accessible” for the purpose of prohibition on possessing a readily accessible, concealed handgun within a vehicle, when that vehicle is a snowmobile, motorcycle, or all-terrain vehicle.  A handgun would not be considered “readily accessible” if it is in a locked container within or affixed to the vehicle or if it is equipped with a triggerlock or other locking mechanism that prevents the discharge of the firearm.  This bill would also modify the offense of operating a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle while carrying a firearm or bow to a Class B traffic violation.

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee today and ask that they oppose any potentially dangerous amendments to these measures.  Contact information for this committee is listed below.
