OFF ALERT 02.11.13
In our last alert we told you about a bill that was scheduled for a hearing on March 5 in House Judiciary.
The bill, HB 2605, did nothing more than extend the protections CHL holders have to retired law enforcement agents.
Oregon law allows retired police to carry without a permit, but they don’t have all the protections license
holders have. For example, they cannot carry in public buildings.
Now we have been informed that Democratic leadership has yanked that bill out of committee and promised to try to move only anti-gun bills.
Whatever your position on gun rights, you have to find this to be an outrage. Most retired police don’t even know there are these limits and this bill extends NO new rights to anyone else.
The only person with the power to yank this bill before it even gets a hearing is Speaker Tina Kotek. 503-986-1200
We’ll update you when we get more information, but right now it seems like the fix is in. Anti-gun bills only.
