Anti-Gun Bills Linger As Oregon Legislature Winds Down

posted on July 1, 2017

The Oregon Legislature is in the final days of session with adjournment scheduled for July 10. This means committees are operating under shortened notice requirements—24 hours for the House, one hour for the Senate—and legislation can move very quickly with limited opportunity for public input. Two anti-gun bills are currently awaiting a hearing that could be scheduled at any time.

Senate Bill 719 is based on a 2014 California law that would create something known as an “Extreme Risk Protection Order.” This ERPO could be obtained by a law enforcement officer, family member or household member who thinks a person presents a potential risk—they would then be stripped of their Second Amendment rights without due process of the law.

Senate Bill 1065 would enable firearm transfers to be delayed by 14 days if the Oregon State Police are unable to determine a buyer’s qualification. The bill would also change the process for obtaining a concealed handgun license by making the requirements much more stringent. 

The NRA Institute for Legislative Action strongly opposes both of these anti-gun measures. To stay abreast of the latest, keep an eye on NRAILA.org over the next few days.
