In an encouraging move, an important piece of concealed-carry reciprocity legislation is continuing to pick up steam in the Beaver State. Sponsored by Republican Rep. Bill Post, HB 3093, which would allow concealed-carry permit holders from other states to legally carry in Oregon, is now headed to the Senate floor.
State anti-gun groups are scrambling to gin up opposition, but it may prove difficult, as many residents seem to favor the measure. “I have heard from hundreds of Oregonians asking us, the legislature, to protect their Second Amendment rights,” Post said.
The bill has also received widespread support in the legislature: It passed the House 57-1, and last week passed the Senate Judiciary Committee with just a single “nay.”
We’ll keep you up-to-date as this important legislation makes its way toward Gov. Brown’s desk.
