Oregon: Gun Ban Proponents Announce End of Initiative Petition 43 Campaign

Oregon: Gun Ban Proponents Announce End of Initiative Petition 43 Campaign

On June 28th, proponents of Initiative Petition 43 announced an end to their campaign to place the initiative on the November ballot due to inadequate time to qualify it by the July 6th deadline.  If passed, IP 43 would have banned most commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and standard capacity magazines.

As previously reported, the Oregon Supreme Court sided with NRA and other petitioners on June 27th in a legal challenge contesting the misleading and inadequate ballot title prepared by the state Attorney General.  Proponents would have had to gather 88,164 valid signatures by July 6th to qualify the initiative for the November ballot, and they were unable to gather signatures until there was a certified ballot title.

Thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters that submitted comments on the draft ballot title and helped to spread the word about the impacts of Initiative Petition 43!  Unfortunately, gun control proponents are not finished.  They will be back in the legislature during the 2019 session to push their agenda as well as re-file this initiative for the 2020 ballot.  While your NRA is at the Capitol on a daily basis throughout the legislative session, it is ultimately citizens like you contacting their legislators who make the difference.  Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates and ways to be involved.
