Today, February 1st, the Oregon Legislature begins the 2022 legislative session. With the start of session, anti-gun legislators have again begun pushing policies that do nothing to prevent crime and only target law-abiding gun owners. NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to stay alert and contact their legislators in opposition to Senate Bill 1577.
Senate Bill 1577 would ban 3-D printed guns, however the bill is so poorly written that it confuses “undetectable” firearms with 3D printed guns. This bill is the ultimate solution in search of a problem. Undetectable firearms have been banned under federal law for 30 years. This is nothing more than political theater. However, because of poor bill drafting, this bill could have serious unintended consequences for hobbyists who engage in the lawful home manufacture of firearms.
As in 2021, the legislature can expect to see both pro and anti-gun agendas this year. Gun owners and sportsmen throughout the state must stay actively involved to defend freedom.
Your NRA will continue to fight to promote and protect your right to keep and bear arms and hunting heritage. Our members remain the most powerful political force in American history, and together, we will secure the Second Amendment for present and future generations.
