Oregon: Gun Lock-Up Bill Moves to House Floor

On February 21st, House Bill 4005A passed out of the House Rules Committee to the House floor, where it could receive a vote at any time. Use the “Take Action” button below to contact your Representatives and ask them to OPPOSE HB 4005A on the floor.

House Bill 4005A is a firearm storage bill that mandates the same egregious provisions from SB 978, which failed to pass last year. HB 4005A requires all firearms to be locked with a trigger-locking device or kept in a locked container, unless under the control of the owner, with each firearm not secured constituting a separate violation. Anyone who has their firearms lost or stolen would be strictly liable for any injury to persons or property if the firearms were not stored in compliance with the law. Gun safety and storage is a matter of personal responsibility and every person’s situation is different. It is unreasonable for the law to impose a one-size-fits-all solution. In short, this measure invades people’s homes and forces them to render their firearms useless for self-defense or become criminals.

Again, please use the “Take Action” button to contact your Representative and urge them to OPPOSE HB 4005A.
