Bill/Issue: OR SB 978 - Secret Omnibus Gun Control
- Position: Opposed
- Author: Oregon Senate Judiciary
- FPC Policy Letter: 3/29 - Judiciary Committee
Summary: SB 978 started its life out as a request for the Oregon state police to conduct a study on attempted unlawful firearms transfers by the Oregon Senate Judiciary committee. While not a great bill, it certainly wasn’t as extreme of an attack on the Second Amendment as other bills in Oregon.
However, SB 978 revealed itself to be a secret omnibus gun control bill.
Now that it has made its way out of the Judiciary committee, our only hope at protecting our Second Amendment rights is to convince 11 Senators to walk out and deny the Oregon State Senate a quorum.
If this does not happen then there is a high likelihood that SB 978 passes and gun ownership in Oregon is put in extreme danger.
