Oregon: Senate Democrats are Trying to Avoid Voting on Concealed Firearm Legislation

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Contact your state Senator today!

As introduced by state Representatives Kim Thatcher (R-25) and Greg Smith (R-57), House Bill 2797 B-Engrossed was intended to correct an error from the last legislative session and would clarify the definition of “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. 

However, on May 26, HB 2797 passed in the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 3 to 2 vote bearing no resemblance to the original bill.  Ignoring your requests to pass the bill unamended, state Senator Floyd Prozanski (D-4) and the two Democratic state Senators on the Judiciary Committee amended it with language unacceptable to the NRA.  One of the Democratic amendments prohibits concealed handgun license holders from exercising their right to carry on all school grounds, including college campuses.

In response, state Senators Jeff Kruse (R-1) and Doug Whitsett (R-28) have prepared a Minority Report that includes language very supportive of our Second Amendment rights.  This bill has been stalled but should up for a vote on the Senate floor soon. 

Please continue to contact your state Senator and ask him or her to support the pro-gun Senate Minority Report amendments to HB 2797.  Also, ask your Senator to be sure to oppose HB 2797 B-Eng, should the Minority Report fail to be adopted.  For help identifying your state Senator, and for their contact information, please click here.
