Oregon: Senate Judiciary Committee to Consider Four Anti-Gun Bills Next Tuesday

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

The four anti-gun bills heard last week in the Senate Judiciary Committee have been scheduled for a work session on Tuesday, April 16, by this Committee.  Using the contact information provided below, please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to oppose these measures and the anti-gun amendments aimed at penalizing law-abiding citizens:

Senate Bill 347 (Amendments 3 and 4) makes it a Class C Felony for a concealed handgun license (CHL) holder to carry a firearm onto school grounds unless the school district or other entity controlling the school grounds has an adopted written policy authorizing an exemption for CHL holders.  The school district may also adopt a written policy requiring all firearms be locked in a metal safe or vault provided by the school or other entity.

Senate Bill 699 (Amendments 1 and 3) bans firearms in the state Capitol unless the person is either 1) a CHL holder and the firearm is “completely concealed” or 2) the person is an active or retired sheriff, police officer, other duly appointed peace officer or a correction officer who is not otherwise prohibited.

Senate Bill 700  (Amendment 14) criminalizes otherwise lawful private transfers of firearms, excluding only immediate family or the transfer to a personal representative or trustee as the result of the owner’s death.  Such background checks would either have to be conducted directly through the Department of State Police or through a licensed gun dealer, who may charge an unspecified fee.  The Department of State Police can maintain these records for a period of up to five years.

Senate Bill 796 (Amendments 1 and 3) requires that an individual applying for a CHL must first “pass” a comprehensive firing range test.

Please call AND e-mail members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE these anti-gun bills and harmful amendments.
