    I recently heard a person can only legally purchase 2 guns per month in Oregon. Any truth to that?

    That's definitely a lie. There is no legal limit to quantities of firearms purchased in oregon.

    I have never heard of anything like that before. I did have an FFL have to go through a few dif people when I purchased 2 rifles within a few hours of each other. All was good in the end though:paranoid:

    now you know the person who told you that is unreliable at best. he either deliberately spreads bullbubblegum lies, or doesn't bother to verify bullbubblegum lies before spreading them around. either way, the things he says cannot be trusted.

    which would change things, but not my statement, oddly enough.

    what's that say about the authenticity of our feminist culture?

    I wish I could afford 2 firearms a month!! It would be hard to keep up with that requirement.
    I'd have a s***load of them now :)

    When I lived in South Carolina in the late '80's, it was illegal to purchase more than 1 handgun in a 30 day period. Supposedly the law was inacted to prevent people from buying lots of guns and shipping them north to places like New York city.

    No truth to it at all. I've purchased more than 2 in one day:)

    Heck--you can purchase more than 2 on one background check! 4473 has
    room for 2, but additional can be listed on a separate piece of paper.
    If 2 or more of them are handguns, then a form 3310.4 is also required.

    I was told if you buy too many,they like to make you do the waiting period some times.

    I think I bought 4 that month.

    Since I don't have a FFL, I'm unsure if the form you quoted is correct. I do remember when I purchased 2 handguns in one transaction, the guy having to fill out an additional form. :thumbup:

    The Portland feminist bookstore "In Other Words" carries my gun magazine and the manager has a CHL. Most feminists I know wish they could afford 2 guns a month. I don't know what this culture is you refer to.

    Lol, you'd just get more expensive guns so the net effect on your budget would be zero.

    the fact that if a man is caught spreading mis- or disinformation, we're pretty hard on them. but if it's a woman, we just sort of roll our eyes and move on.

    my point had nothing to do with guns, and was more addressing male sexism and the lie that is feminism. men may act like they regard women equally, yet our expectations of them are generally much lower, regardless.

    That's funny, I notice the exact opposite. Just one example close to home:
    I know three female auto mechanics who are more experienced than me, except I'm working in that field and they're not. The standard for them is so much HIGHER that an employer would rather have me in their shop despite my lower qualifications.
