Oregon Republicans and Democrats have worked together to push SB 554B, which would restrict the places where an honest CHL holder can carry while also doubling the permit cost. The bill further mandates certain storage requirements that would make a firearm likely inaccessible for immediate use in the home, while increasing criminal penalties for failure to comply. FPC needs you to take action now!
Further, this bill could prohibit certain immediate family members from accessing a firearm in the home for self-defense! This bill is now heading to the Senate for a concurrence vote on the changes made in the House. There is still time to oppose this attack on your rights!
Here are exact quotes from the bill.
(1) “Authorized person” means a person authorized by the owner or possessor of a firearm to temporarily carry or control the firearm while in the presence of the owner or possessor.
(b) That the owner or possessor of the firearm is in the person’s own residence, either alone or with only authorized persons who also live in the residence and who are not minors, and the residence is secure.
