Oregon: Anti-Gun Legislators Reintroduce Gun Control Bills

Today, anti-gun legislators will be introducing Senate Bill 1065, which is a combination of two anti-gun bills, Senate Bill 764 and Senate Bill 797.  Both SB 764 and SB 797 failed to pass the policy committee deadline on April 18 and were considered dead for the rest of the 2017 legislative session; however, Senator Prozanski, Senator Burdick and Representative Williamson have introduced SB 1065 as a priority bill to avoid this committee deadline.  Please contact your state Senator and President of the Senate, Senator Courtney, in opposition to SB 1065!  Click “Take Action button below to contact your state Senator and Senator Courtney.

As a combination of SB 764 and SB 797, SB 1065 would require firearm transfers to be delayed for 14 days if the Oregon State Police (OSP) are unable to determine eligibility.  A deferral from OSP does not necessarily mean the recipient is prohibited, but rather that OSP is not satisfied with the background check inquiry and a determination has not yet been made.  Currently, federal law allows a licensed firearm dealer (FFL) to release a firearm after three business days if they have not received any additional correspondence after receiving a “delay” when conducting the initial background check for a firearm transfer.  This safeguard prevents the potential shutdown of sales via endless delays and allows law-abiding individuals to take possession of a firearm in a timely manner. 

Further, SB 1065 would change the Oregon Concealed Handgun License (CHL) permit process by making the requirements to obtain a CHL much more stringent.  This would make it much more difficult for law-abiding Oregonians to exercise their constitutional rights by requiring live range requirement and restricting the courses that could be used to meet the competency requirement.  Like SB 764, SB 1065 is also an omnibus bill combining portions of SB 495, SB 546, SB 549, SB 670, SB 804, SB 854 and SB 903.  While there are good portions of this omnibus bill taken from legislation introduced by pro-gun Senators, the NRA remains strongly opposed to this bill because of the changes it makes to firearm transfers and Oregon's CHL process. 

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and President of the Senate, Senator Courtney, in opposition to SB 1065!
