SB 941 UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS
Heading for Senate Floor 2nd reading April 13, 3rd reading & vote April 14
What is in this bill?This is the big showdown on Universal Background Checks for all firearm sales with few exceptions.
Judiciary Committee didn't allow adequate time for all those who came to from across the state to testify on this bill. Supporters were given their say, opponents were disenfranchised.
The Oregon Republican Party has taken a position opposing this bill and urges ALL Oregonians who value their Second Amendment Rights to take action now.
Current SituationThe Bill would require background checks be performed through a gun dealer for a fee and in most cases, in person as well. Multiple common sense amendments were offered and rejected without consideration by the Judiciary Committee Chair
The bill was voted out of committee and sent to the Senate floor on a partyline vote by Floyd Prozanski, Ginny Burdick and Sara Gelser.
