Oregon Governor Pushing For More Gun Control Next Session

posted on October 21, 2017

Last week, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced that she will continue to make gun control restrictions a key tenet of her gubernatorial campaign. Unable to pass her anti-gun agenda in 2017, the Democratic governor is urging lawmakers to support State Bill 797 in the upcoming legislative session that will begin in February 2018.

SB 797 would require firearm transfers to be indefinitely delayed if the state police are unable to determine eligibility. Under federal law, a licensed firearms dealer must release a gun to a gun purchaser after three business days if they haven’t received any delay notification when conducting the background check. SB 797 would negate that safeguard and could lead to endless delays in the purchase of firearms.

Brown, who accepted a $250,000 donation from Michael Bloomberg during her last campaign in 2016, is running for re-election in 2018. The current Republican frontrunner is Rep. Knute Buehler of Bend, Ore.
