Oregon: Anti-Gun Bill Aimed at Restricting Lawful Private Transfers Introduced and on the Move!

Oregon: Anti-Gun Bill Aimed at Restricting Lawful Private Transfers Introduced and on the Move!

Today, Senate Bill 941 was introduced in Oregon. This is an egregious bill that would require individuals to appear before a gun dealer to request a criminal background check prior to privately transferring a firearm. Transfers include, but are not limited to, sales, gifts, loans and leases. Failure to comply with this mandate could result in stiff penalties and possible loss of an individual’s right to keep and bear arms.

So-called “universal” background checks do nothing to reduce violent crime, and only affect law-abiding gun owners by imposing cumbersome mandates and restrictions on the lawful purchase and possession of firearms. Criminals, by definition, do not follow the law and do not subject themselves to gun control schemes or background checks. It is already illegal to knowingly sell or transfer a firearm to someone classified as a prohibited person, and is a felony for a prohibited person to buy, own or possess a firearm. This is an ineffective and unenforceable piece of legislation that will only impact the law abiding.  To sign up in opposition to Senate Bill 941, please click here.

SB 941, like many other gun control schemes, is a step towards the full registration of firearms.  In January 2013, the Department of Justice said that background checks on all firearm transfers “depends on…requiring gun registration.”

SB 941 is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, April 1, at 8:00 a.m.  Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee today and politely urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 941.  Committee contact information is provided below.
