Anti-gun groups are working to get enough votes to pass SB 941 (Oregon “universal” background check bill) through the Oregon House. Senate Bill 941 is the bill that unnecessarily expands background checks to almost all sales and transfers of guns by private individuals. SB 941 passed out of the House Rules committee in a party-line vote (by anti-gun Dems) last Thursday after 7.5 hours of public hearings and now anti-gun supporters are trying to line up enough votes to pass SB 941 in a House floor vote.

SB 941 was already passed by the Oregon Senate.

It’s very important to respectfully keep letting your Oregon state representatives know that you oppose SB 941. It’s against the 2nd Amendment, and it’s bad legislation.

Here are some resources to help you in contacting your Oregon state representative:

    What really burns me is Oregon is one of the safest states in the union. Compared to “states with background checks”, Oregon’s gun-homicide rate is 1.4 VS ~3.7. Of the 15 safest states, Oregon is ranked 11th. And only 3 “background check” states make it into the top 15 (2013, CDC data, not counting Washington state who passed I594 and became law in December 2013).

    This will pass on a party line vote with maybe a couple Democrat defections. What we need to focus on is a huge, public education project after the session to inform people just exactly what was done to them.

      For surety know: Appreciate Betsy Johnson who’d have made for better a SOS positioning than left wing partisan-blurbs like Brown and Bradbury – altogether know, munching down on Katz and KIxhabers cereal’s of chumpanzees.
