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.
