Oregon: Magazine Ban & Gun-Free Zone Expansion Bills Introduced

On March 4th, legislation was introduced to allow local governments and other entities to ban the carrying of firearms in public buildings and to ban firearm magazines with a capacity greater than ten.  This comes less than a week after legislation was introduced to ban many commonly owned semi-automatic firearms used by countless gun owners for target shooting, hunting, and self-defense.  Please contact your state legislators and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 925 and House Bill 3265.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state legislators.

Senate Bill 925, sponsored by Senator Ginny Burdick (D-18), would allow local governments, universities, and certain airports to adopt ordinances or regulations prohibiting concealed handgun licensees from carrying firearms in public buildings.  So called “gun-free zones” are simply arbitrary boundaries where law-abiding citizens are left defenseless while nothing is done to hinder criminals who simply ignore such boundaries.  Disarming law-abiding citizens will not improve public safety.

House Bill 3265, sponsored by Representative Mitch Greenlick (D-33), would ban the possession of firearm magazines with a capacity greater than ten rounds of ammunition, encompassing most standard capacity magazines commonly used by law-abiding citizens, such as with handguns popular for self-defense.  There would be no grandfathering provision.  Individuals would have 180 days to convert the magazine to no greater than ten rounds of capacity, transfer them out of state, destroy them, or surrender them to law-enforcement.  In addition, there would be a one-size-fits-all requirement for how these banned magazines must be reported if lost or stolen, further victimizing gun owners who have suffered a loss or theft of their property.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state legislators and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 925 and House Bill 3265.
