40,000 gun buys, 1 weekend. To beat deadline.

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon

Lincoln City Homepage reports, “Nearly 40,000 people who bought firearms in Oregon last weekend were driven to gun stores to beat a proposed new law that makes it harder to acquire handguns and rifles, according to a leading dealer in Lincoln County.Senate Bill 348, which has many of the same restrictions of a successful ballot measure currently stalled in court, appeared to be headed toward approval by the Oregon Legislature at press time.“Together, these laws have expedited putting a million firearms into the hands of Oregonians who never planned to buy a firearm but thought they should because they felt their rights were being taken away from them,” commented Bruce Polvi, a licensed firearms dealer at Lincoln City Sporting Goods. “This is an end run around the courts, and in many ways it’s worse than Measure 114 that passed by less than a percentage point.” “

Not only did Oregon pass the nation’s most restrictive and bureaucratic gun law in the nation last November, but additional gun rules are being debated in the Legislature.  Read Big gun bill debated, delayed to May vote .
