Wait until you hear the details in this bill: Oregon proposal would require gun owners to obtain permits

As reported by Oregon Live: A proposal by two Oregon lawmakers to require permits for all gun owners is generating buzz online and among Republicans at the Capitol, even before it’s scheduled to be introduced at the Legislature on Monday.

It’s the brainchild of student activists connected to the movement that grew out of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, where a shooter killed 17 people nearly a year ago, according to the bill. Sen. Rob Wagner, D-Tualatin, and Rep. Andrea Salinas, D-Lake Oswego, are sponsoring it.

Wagner said the bill grew out of a meeting he and Salinas had last year with roughly 300 Oregon students following the Florida shooting. “Any opportunity for conversation around these controversial topics is really important,” Wagner said. “It’s a really important message that we listen to students … about what it’s like to go to school right now.”

The sweeping legislation would also require people to undergo background checks before purchasing or sharing ammunition and would limit ammunition purchases to 20 rounds within a 30-day period, although people could purchase and use unlimited ammunition at shooting ranges. It would ban magazines that hold more than five rounds of ammunition.

Additionally, Senate Bill 501 would require people to securely store their guns and report the loss or theft of a firearm to law enforcement within 24 hours.

If lawmakers pass the proposal, people who ignore it could face severe penalties. For example, anyone who possessed a firearm without a permit could be fine up to $6,250 and sentenced to as much as 364 days in jail.

It’s one of 11 bills dealing with firearms that are scheduled to be introduced on Monday, when lawmakers and Gov. Kate Brown return to Salem to be sworn in for their new terms. The Legislative session begins Jan. 22. Not all of the bills would regulate guns. For example, House Bill 2287 would allow school districts to allow firearm safety courses on school property.

In a press release on Friday, Rep. Bill Post, a Republican from Keizer, said the ammunition purchase limit would make it difficult for gun owners to become proficient and should worry duck hunters. Post also said he was worried the bill’s ban on magazines to hold more than five rounds of ammunition would mean “your old six-shot revolver would be required to be turned in or destroyed.”

However, the bill exempts .22-caliber revolvers and any lever-action revolver.

A separate bill is also being introduced that would require gun owners to securely store their weapons with locks and make it easier for shooting victims to sue for damages if the gun owner failed to secure the weapon, report the loss or theft of the gun in a timely manner or supervise a child using the gun.

The proposal is named after the two people killed in the 2012 Clackamas Town Center shooting and their relatives are working to pass it.

Another great one. This of course if passed which is doubtful would end up in a higher court then on to the Supreme Court.

The Second Amendment is etched in stone.

Thanks taking it to my site, love the graphic, J.C.

Those in the Oregon legislature would do well to read the U.S. Constitution. The Second Amendment is part of our very heritage. It’s doubtful that this legislation will go anywhere, but should it, look to it to be brought to a circuit court and ultimately to the U.S. Supreme Court, if need be to keep the Oregon state legislature from stealing “The land of fruits and nuts,” away from California. Oregon proposal would require gun owners to obtain permits. How many illegal arms owners, common street thugs, house breakers, rapists and murders will comply? The party of the Democrats is… Read more »

Let me get this straight. They’re doing this on the advice of a bunch of teenagers? Not really. They’re just facists. Communists. Socialists. If one of us good guys don’t take them out, you can bet it’s only a matter of time one of the bad guys will

The first real problem with all these proposed unrealistic legislated regulations is not necessarily their clear violation of our Constitution, but there is just absolutely no one openly exposing how they are all inspired by faked, staged crises. Being their whole purpose. Constitutional issues have long become moot to the liberal and deep state agenda, now being a futile effort; except for the last ditch effort reserved to the true U.S. citizens [B]y our second amendment. Even the most self-proclaimed conservative commentators who have to be aware and well informed, and truly have unassailable platforms for reaching the public will… Read more »

WTF is a “Lever Action Revolver”? If you shoved some people’s brains up a mouse’s ass it would look like a baseball in a stadium

Why don’t they just lower the voting age to 10, and the minimum age to hold office, to a teenager (13), since they have a better idea how to legislate, and use reason, not emotion? ??

This is where you sponsor a bill that makes it mandatory for five-year-olds to carry full-automatics at all times and provides them free of charge to convicts. Every time they do this the counter is to do the opposite, only worse. Under no circumstances should anybody discuss something like this seriously.

It’s unconstitutional, end of story.

Again, I would encourage all readers here to not rely solely on firearms, but to have some martial arts training, (I’d suggest some WIng Chun, and Eskrima if you can find it, along with anything having to do with knife or blade fighting as a back up.) and some other forms of defense weapons available (including exotic things that the jack-boots aren’t likely to be prepared to deal with, sonics, particle beam, and wave-type items, etc.) be versed in tactics to be able to use them and the martial arts properly, and also be versed in what can be used… Read more »
