Salem, OR – Senator Betsy Close (R-Corvallis/Albany) and Senator Jeff Kruse (R-Roseburg) issued the following statement regarding SB 1551 Thursday morning:

“It is disappointing that we are focusing on such a divisive topic when the issue that deserves our attention is mental health care. A better funded, more effective mental health care system will do far more to prevent mass gun violence than this bill. This proposal is not a solution, but political posturing in preparation for election season.”
