Oregon: Recalls Underway

The “universal” background check measure under consideration in Oregon has many gun-rights supporters riled—to the point of initiating recalls against those who don’t support their right to keep and bear arms.

According to The Oregonian, paperwork for recalls have been submitted against Sen. Chuck Riley and Rep. Susan McLain, both of whom sponsored Senate Bill 941. Additionally, paperwork for a recall has been submitted targeting House Majority Leader Val Hoyle, a supporter of the measure.

It remains to be seen whether the movement will catch on and more legislators will be subject to possible recall, as occurred in Colorado last year after restrictive anti-gun legislation was passed in that state.
