Less than 24 hours after the NRA and other petitioners filed a legal challenge opposing the certified ballot title for Initiative Petition 43, the Oregon Supreme Court issued an order consolidating all legal challenges, denying oral arguments, and establishing imminent filing deadlines. On June 11th, the NRA, along with other petitioners, filed a motion of reconsideration with the Oregon Supreme Court objecting to their scheduling order.
Your NRA will vigorously oppose attempts by the Oregon Supreme Court to fast-track Initiative Petition 43 which seeks to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Oregonians.
As previously reported, the NRA filed a joint legal challenge with the Oregon Hunters Association contesting the misleading and inadequate ballot title as certified by the Oregon Attorney General for Initiative Petition 43. If passed, Initiative Petition 43 would ban most semi-automatic firearms, including rifles, pistols, and shotguns, based only on their cosmetic features. It would also ban standard-capacity magazines and semi-automatic firearms with a fixed magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Anyone in legal possession of these firearms or magazines would be required to sell, surrender, register, or remove them from the state.
