Oregon: All Gun Bills Declared Dead on Arrival by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

In today's state Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Senate Bills 1550, 1551  and 1574, Chairman Floyd Prozanski (D-4) opened by declaring that all gun-related bills brought forward in the 2012 short legislative session would not advance through his committee.  That leaves the fate of NRA-supported House Bill 4045, a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) confidentiality measure, in jeopardy should it advance beyond the House floor vote next week, since it will be assigned to this committee.  Today, HB 4045, sponsored by state Representative Kim Thatcher (R-25), passed in the House Judiciary Committee work session by a 7 to 3 vote.

Please contact your state Representative and ask him or her to support HB 4045 with NO minority report attached. To determine who your state Representative is, please click here.

According to state Senate Judiciary Chairman Prozanski, the House Judiciary Co-Chairmen, state Representatives Wayne Krieger (R-1) and Jeff Barker (D-28), would not commit to advancing any of the Senate's gun bills, so for all intents and purposes, Prozanski declared all of the pro- and anti-gun bills dead.  The NRA was subsequently informed that the real issue on Prozanski’s part was that during the course of the House Judiciary Committee hearing on HB 4045, the House committee would not approve amendments proposed by state Senator Ginny Burdick (D-18), which would have placed the CHL information under the Public Records Law, something the committee was trying to avoid. 

State Senator Prozanski's SB 1574 and both of state Senator Burdick's measures, SB 1550 and 1551 (please see our previous alert), pertaining to carrying firearms in on schools grounds and in public buildings, already faced hefty uphill battles in the state House.  SB 1574 was especially problematic and, despite amendments offered to supposedly "fix" some of the issues with it, the NRA maintained its opposition on the grounds that the measure still could adversely affect law-abiding permit holders traveling through Oregon.
