Ballot Measure 114 is the nation’s most extreme gun control Initiative and will be voted on this November!

Under the guise of the "Reduction of Gun Violence Act," Ballot Measure 114 is an unconstitutional, anti-gun initiative package that includes a state-run government registry of gun owners’ personal information and firearms, requires a permit to purchase a firearm, imposes an indefinite delay on background checks, and bans any magazine with over a 10-round capacity.

Why Should I vote No on Ballot Measure 114?

  • Ballot Measure 114 is an unconstitutional BAN on ammo magazines with more than 10-rounds. Measure 114 will ban the use, possession, manufacturing, and transfer of ammunition magazines over 10-rounds. Use of a currently owned magazine will only be lawful on private property, at a shooting range, and while engaged in hunting. When a magazine is transported off private property, the magazine must be removed from the firearm and stored separately. Therefore, a magazine over 10-rounds will not be available to exercise the right to self-defense “outside of the home.”
  • Ballot Measure 114 would require government permission to exercise your Second Amendment constitutional rights. Measure 114 requires a permit-to-purchase (or transfer) a firearm. The permit must be issued by law enforcement. There is no exception for law enforcement or military purchase of firearms for personal use. A Concealed Handgun License does not qualify as a permit-to-purchase. A Hunter Safety Certification does not qualify as a permit-to-purchase. Permit must be renewed every 5 years for a fee. Issuance of a permit requires completion of classroom and live-fire training offered only by law enforcement certified instructors. There is no limit to the amount that can be charged for these classes. Facilities and ranges for classes are extremely limited. Nothing requires law enforcement agencies to actually offer the classes required to obtain the permit.
  • Ballot Measure 114 would allow your personal information to be added to a government registry. Measure 114 requires law enforcement to maintain a registry of gun owner’s personal information contained in the permit application including - applicant’s legal name, current address and telephone number, date and place of birth, physical description, fingerprints, pictures, and ANY additional information determined necessary by law enforcement. This data will be published annually.

  • Law enforcement agencies are not required to offer the training course, but they are the only ones who may offer the course

    1. Ballot Measure 114 does NOT provide any funding for law enforcement agencies to offer the required training course

    • Law enforcement agencies are already underfunded in Oregon after progressives pushed to “defund the police”
    • Oregon State Sheriffs Association has estimated it will cost law enforcement nearly $40,000,000 each year to provide the permit training
    • Ballot Measure 114 is estimated to cost local police $51.2 million dollars in the first year, and $47.5 million each year after that

    2. The is no limit to how much money law enforcement agencies may charge you to take the course

    • Without successfully completing the course, you cannot apply for a permit to purchase or transfer a firearm
    • This will have a detrimental impact on poorer communities and could prohibit those with limited financial means from being able to exercise their constitutional rights
  • Applicants cannot obtain a permit without first passing a law enforcement firearms training course ·

    1. There is no limit on how much law enforcement may charge for the firearms training course

    • Voters should anticipate this being very expensive

    2. The in-person training portion requires live-fire so it must be conducted at a shooting range, or other appropriate facility

    • Shooting ranges and facilities are limited in Oregon
  • First-time firearm owners may find it impossible to obtain a permit

    1. To obtain a permit, applicants must first pass the firearms training course. To pass the course applicants must have a firearm. But, they can’t purchase a firearm until they obtain the permit

    2. First-time firearm owners will have to rely on borrowing a firearm from law enforcement or another individual

    • Law enforcement is not obligated to provide firearms for the training course
    • SB 554 (passed in 2021) severely limits temporary transfers of firearms between individuals
  • Ballot Measure 114 creates a government registry of firearm owners

    1. Law enforcement is required to maintain an “electronic searchable database” of all permits issued:

    • Law enforcement must annually report permit information, which could be disclosed to the public
    • Permit information includes: applicants legal name, current address and telephone number, date and place of birth, physical description, fingerprints, photographs, a signature and ANY additional information determined necessary by the law enforcement agency on the application

    2. The Supreme Court has ruled that people who are prohibited by law from possessing firearms (such as felons, people adjudicated mentally incompetent, domestic violence abusers, and drug addicts) cannot be required to register firearms, because doing so would violate their 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination.

  • Ballot Measure 114 unconstitutionally BANS ammunition magazines over 10 rounds

    1. The NRA is currently challenging similar 10-round magazine bans in court, in California and New Jersey

    2. Fixed and detachable magazines capable of accepting more than 10 rounds of ammunition will be banned

    3. Shotguns (including pump-action and semi-automatic) will be banned under this measure unless permanently altered

    • Most shotguns are capable of accepting more than 10 “mini-rounds” commonly used as home or self-defense rounds
    • Most shotguns are capable of accepting extended tubes commonly used for depredation goose hunts

    4. Currently possessed magazines over 10-rounds will be limited to use on the owner's own personal property, at a shooting range, or while hunting

    5. Transporting previously possessed magazines over 10 rounds must be stored and locked separately from the firearm

    6. Law enforcement and military are ONLY exempted for their service firearm while engaged in their official duties

    7. Personal firearms will be limited to 10-round magazines

    8. Possession and use of a firearm while off-duty will be limited to 10-rounds

    9. There is NO affirmative legal defense available for magazines owned before the effective date of Ballot Measure 114 (IF it passes in November)
