    I don't think I missed any directly related to firearms, but all of them can be found here. HB 4133 might be of interest to some.

    This is all kinds of wrong, but even if background checks for private sales were a good thing, why would they need the "make, model, caliber, and serial number" of the gun to be transferred? I thought it was a background check on the buyer, not a registry of the guns that people buy? Theoretically, they can only keep the record for 5 years, but who knows how that is handled.

    Prozanski needs prozac. I doubt this bill is going anywhere - it's essentially the same one introduced last year that was killed. I think, being an election year, there aren't enough dems willing to risk their seats to vote this nonsense through - I'm sure they remember what Colorado did last year and don't want to risk being ousted themselves.

    I hope you're right and it puts Floyd's political career out to pasture because he's pushing this pretty hard.

    Are you considering it registration when you get a BGC at the gunshop or gunshow then?

    If this bill passes, it will be easier to just get an FFL and sell your firearm.
    Read the fing bill.

    Defacto registration, for five years, yes. It is a little different right now though, since you have the option of buying guns in private sales, so at least all your guns are not registered.

    Until the BATFE decides to do an audit on the FFL or OSP books, and we know they would never copy any of the transactions down during the audit for their records. Nor would they ever keep electronic copies of the BGC's. They certainly would never keep the FFL's books they have to turn in when they give up their FFL. :paranoid:

    HB 4068 is a step in the right direction and provides that existing law is applied equally and fairly. OFF has a decent explanation about it, and it could be better.

    HB 4075. It allows disabled hunters to use a battery powered scope, laser sight, or lighted pin sight on a bow. My only reservation is that a licensed person accompanying the disabled hunter may shoot the game animal for the disabled.

    Just sent my letter off to Chris Edwards. He didn't reply to me last year and so I'm not going to hold my breath that he will this year.

    The person to watch is D-Senator Betsy Johnson. She was the swing vote that botched things for Prozac, and Burdick in the Senate. Keep pressure on her to NOT support the registration bill. Also D-Roblan is in a district that is fairly gun friendly, so if you are over in Coos Bay/Reedsport etc....might be a good time to drop Roblan a note to keep him in line. As to Prozanski, I haven't seen anyone sign up to oppose him. Lane County Republican leadership is a mess right now, so don't expect a powerhouse opponent show up to bounce Prozanski.

    This is exactly the rhetoric that the anti's are using against us. You need to think this through a bit. How in the world can the law be enforced if there isn't a registry? I'll tell you how, without a registry, there is no way to know who owns what and if there was a transfer of ownership. Look at what's happening in New York and California. Listen to what Burdick has said about registration and confiscation. Look at the Chicago liberals looking for someone, anyone to be punished for their concealed carry law change. This is but another foot in the door. It's an attack against a straw man (felons undergoing a background check) in an attempt to wrestle freedoms away from law abiding citizens.

    You wonder why one of OFFs' slogans is "No Compromise"? It's exactly this. The antis' couldn't care less about enforcing laws. They only care about making themselves look good. This law has absolutely nothing to do with public safety and has everything to do with political posturing.

    You are in part, doing yourself a big favor by doing a BGC on a sale.

    You sell to a felon, and this is bad ju ju
    As far as the gun make model and SER##
    If you are buying, and the gun turns out to be hot, that's also bummer, especially if you decide to sell it later, and it then ends up heading to a police prop room as a stolen gun.
    You will likely be out your $$$

    There are some good things in this stuff, but sadly these laws can be perverted dreadfully

    Will any of these laws stop whackos from school and mall shootings, very very unlikely.

    Will these laws add to the govmnt database, certainly will.

    Is there a happy medium, MAYBE.

    Can the politicians and go to a very limited part time legislature.

    WE could send all the politickers home for 5 years, and things would go just fine, the sun would still come up every morning and set every night. :laugh:
