Time is of the Essence Regarding Right-to-Carry Bills in Oregon

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Two important right-to-carry reform bills, House Bill 2787 and House Bill 2792, are expected to be heard in the state Senate Judiciary Committee work session tomorrow in room 343 of the Capitol.  

HB 2787, sponsored by state Representatives 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 state Representatives Kim Thatcher (R-25), Tim Freeman (R-2) and Greg Smith (R-57), would provide 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.  It is imperative that this bill be passed as-written, without any amendments added.

Please contact members of the state Senate Judiciary Committee today urging them to support these much-needed right-to-carry reform bills WITHOUT anti-gun amendments. Contact information for the Senate Judiciary Committee can be found below.
