Oregon: Gun Ban Introduced in the State Legislature

Oregon: Gun Ban Introduced in the State Legislature

On Thursday, anti-gun Rep. Carla Piluso introduced a draconian gun ban bill, House Bill 3223, that would impose California-style gun control in Oregon by banning many commonly owned semi-automatic firearms used by countless gun owners for target shooting, hunting, and self-defense.  HB 3223 has not yet been referred to a committee for consideration at this time.  Please contact your state legislators and urge them to OPPOSE HB 3223 and other anti-gun legislation.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state legislators.

House Bill 3223, sponsored by Representative Carla Piluso (D-50), would ban semi-automatic handguns, rifles, and shotguns of certain listed models or with any listed features.  These cosmetic features do not fundamentally alter how a semi-automatic firearm operates.  Those who own these firearms prior to the ban would be required to register them with the state police, transfer them out of state, transfer them to law-enforcement, or render them inoperable within one year.  In addition, there would be a one-size-fits-all requirement for how these banned firearms must be reported if lost or stolen, further victimizing gun owners who have suffered a loss or theft of their property.

This bill joins the constantly growing list of anti-gun legislation introduced in Oregon this session.  As previously reported, some of the more egregious bills that have already been filed include the following:

House Bill 2251, filed at the request of Governor Kate Brown, would define many commonly owned semi-automatic firearms as “assault rifles,” prohibit young adults under the age of 21 from receiving such defined “assault rifles,” require firearm transfers be delayed for up to 30 days for the Oregon State Police to conduct background checks, and impose stiff criminal penalties for those who allow a minor to access a firearm.

Senate Bill 275, sponsored by Senator James Manning (D-7) and Representative Salinas, and House Bill 2505, sponsored by Representative Barbara Smith Warner (D-45), would include language from the failed Initiative Petition 44 of 2018.  It would restrict the right to self-defense by imposing a one-size-fits-all requirement for the storage of firearms.  Additionally, Senate Bill 817 has been introduced by Senator Ginny Burdick (D-18) and Representative Jennifer Williamson (D-36) to impose requirements for firearm storage with the penalty of a 5 year prohibition on acquiring firearms for non-compliant storage and possible fines and imprisonment.

Senate Bill 87, filed at the request of the Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries, Brad Avakian, would prohibit young adults under the age of 21 from purchasing firearms and allow firearm dealers to discriminate against and refuse to sell firearms, ammunition, or firearm components to adults of any age.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above and urge your state legislators to OPPOSE HB 3223 and other anti-gun legislation.  Your NRA-ILA is at the Capitol on a daily basis throughout the session, so stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on these bills and other legislation impacting Second Amendment rights in Oregon.
