Oregon: Your Action Needed – Urge Committee Members to Oppose Legislation Creating Indefinite Delays on Firearm Transfers

On Thursday, March 4 at 1:00pm, the House Committee on Judiciary is scheduled to hear anti-gun House Bill 2543, legislation that allows for indefinite delays on firearm transfers. Please use the take action button below to contact members of the committee to urge their opposition to HB 2543. Additionally, it’s important to submit testimony directly to the committee as reports have indicated those wishing to provide oral testimony have had mixed success due to technical difficulties. Instructions for both participating remotely and submitting written testimony can be found here.

HB 2543, sponsored by Representative Lisa Reynolds (D-36), allows for the indefinite delay of firearm transfers.  Current law allows a licensed firearm dealer (FFL) to release a firearm to a purchaser the following business day if they have not received any additional correspondence from the Department of State Police after receiving a “delay” when conducting the initial background check for a firearm transfer.  This safeguard prevents the potential shutdown of sales via endless delays, and allows law-abiding individuals to take possession of a firearm in a timely manner.  HB 2543 removes this safeguard, potentially creating a limitless delay on the exercise of a fundamental right.  This legislation is extremely dangerous if someone is trying to buy a firearm for self-defense and bureaucratic hurdles get in the way of their ability to protect themselves and their families.

Again, please contact members of the House Committee on Judiciary and ask them to OPPOSE House Bill 2543.  Be sure to continue checking your inbox and www.NRA-ILA.org for updates concerning your Second Amendment Rights and hunting heritage in Oregon.
