Oregon: Flawed Legislation Amended and Passed Out of Committee

Yesterday, the House Rules Committee passed Senate Bill 315 after making amendments to the legislation.  This bill is now waiting to be scheduled for a final vote on the House floor.

As previously reported, SB 315 was gutted and used as a vehicle to offer supposed “fixes” to the onerous regulations set forth in Senate Bill 941, the flawed background check legislation passed earlier this session.  However, these “fixes” will do little, if anything, to address the issues inherent in SB 941.  These “fixes” continue to make the bill more restrictive than California’s unbearable anti-gun laws.  With the new amendments, individuals will no longer be held liable if a gun is used in a crime during a temporary loan, as long as a background check was performed prior to the loan.  Even so, the ambiguity of this legislation only adds confusion to the regulations set forth in SB 941 and creates more problems for law-abiding gun owners.

On Monday, Senate Bill 247, legislation which would increase hunting, angling and fishing license fees over a six year period, passed the Senate with a 16-14 vote.  SB 247 passed out of the House Ways and Means committee yesterday with 17-7 vote and now awaits a final vote by the House of Representatives.  These increases, along with decreased opportunities, discourage a number of sportsmen across Oregon by placing heavy financial burdens on hunters and anglers.  Having fewer hunters afield can be disastrous for wildlife populations, the economy, conservation, agency funding and America’s hunting heritage.  A comprehensive overview of the proposed fee increases can be found here.
