Oregon: Legislature Adjourns 2014 Session with No Anti-Gun Legislation Passed

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Last Friday, March 7, the Oregon legislature adjourned their 2014 session.  Residents of Oregon can now rest easy knowing that their Second Amendment rights have remained intact.  This session saw the introduction of a dangerous and misguided piece of anti-gun legislation, Senate Bill 1551, as well as the passage and pending enactment of two pro-gun bills, House Bill 4035 and House Bill 4068.

SB 1551 would have criminalized the lawful private transfer of firearms.  This legislation was reported on several times by your NRA-ILA.  Thanks to members across the great state of Oregon, SB 1551 was halted in the Senate Rules Committee.  If passed, this legislation could have had a detrimental impact on the private transfer of firearms in the Beaver State.  The NRA applauds and thanks those members of the state Senate who voted against this bill in committee, and the grassroots efforts of NRA members who made their opinions known.

HB 4035, sponsored by state Representative Jeff Barker (D-28), would permit a corrections officer with a valid concealed handgun license, who is not provided a locked and secure location within the correctional facility, to leave a locked firearm in their personal vehicle while they are in the correctional facility.  HB 4035 has passed the House with a 53 to 4 vote, as well as the Senate with a 29 to 1 vote, and is currently awaiting the Governor’s signature.

House Bill 4068, sponsored by state Representative David Gomberg (D-10), seeks to correct inconsistencies in the law pertaining to CHL eligibility for those with a previous misdemeanor marijuana offense. HB 4068 has passed the House with a 57-0-3 vote, as well as unanimously in the Senate, and is currently awaiting the Governor’s signature.

Protection of your Second Amendment freedoms is of the highest importance to the NRA.  The activism by members across the state of Oregon communicated the importance of these rights to the legislature and resulted in a productive 2014 session.
