The House Judiciary Committee is currently working on several bills to help gun owners.

  • Rep Thatcher’s bill to protect the privacy of Concealed Handgun Owners, HB 2787, is gaining support.
  • Rep Thatcher’s measure to allow concealed carry permits from other states to be recognized in Oregon, HB 2792, has also generated support.
  • One additional bill, HB 2797, which would allow persons to lawfully transport handguns while riding motorcycles and clarify the law about how people could lawfully transport firearms on ATV’s and snowmobiles should also get a hearing soon.
