    Prozanski Schedules Gun Registration Bill

    Fourdays afterhe informed "Ceasefire Oregon" that he wouldbe hearinghis gunregistration bill, SB 1551, FloydProzanski has officially scheduled the bill so the publiccannow see what he sharedwiththe anti-rights extremists last Friday.

    The billwill be heardon Thursday, Feb 6, at 8AM in HearingRoom 50, which is inthe Capitol basement.Floyd has invited NRA totestify.OFF was not invited; however, NRA has offered us a place ontheir panel.

    There are stillunconfirmed rumors of "celebrity"anti-gunners comingin from out of town.

    If youare planningto come and testify, keep the following inmind:

    While you maysubmit written testimony, you shouldbe ready tobe flexible onwhat yousay. It is very likely that amendments will be proposedwhich can changethe makeupof the bill.

    Here are some points about the bill:

    (Be preparedto respondtoa moving target.)

    The billoutlaws private transfers to people you have knownyour whole life.

    The billis a de factoregistration scheme.Without registrationthe billhas no meaning.

    There is noreasonto demand the serialnumberof the gunbeing transferred if this is not a registrationscheme.

    Inspite of what Floyd says, people HAVE hadtheirguns confiscatedIN OREGON, withNO LEGAL JUSTIFICATION, because of backgroundchecks.

    As written, this billallows you togive a gunto your nephew but forbidshim from givingit back without police permission!

    Underthe billyoucould give a guntoyour gaypartner, but you couldnot give a guntoperson of the opposite sex withwhom you lived but were not legally marriedto.

    You couldgive a gun toyourson-in-law, but he cannot give it back without permission from the state.

    You can give a gunto your nephew but he can't give it back without permission from the state.

    If youhave a range, trainingfacility, orgun clubthat allows people touse guns you own, as part of a class youcharge for, youhave "leased" a gunand now must runa background check andtransfer the gunto them before they can use the gun inthe class.(Assumingthe check is even completedbefore the class is over.)

    Theythen must "transfer"the gunback to you at the endof the class.

    The billhas no provisionforallowing a transferif the OSP can't complete a backgroundcheck.

    (The law allows dealers to transferinthree days but does NOTallow private parties to transferin3days if OSP can't complete the check.)

    Unlike the present system, any transferwillrequire that you have and retain transferforms only available from theState Police.

    If youplan tosubmit materials tothe committee, please send a PDF to mike.reiley@state.or.us by noontomorrow. Forprinted documents, please provide 10papercopies tothe assistant when you testify.

    It's a train wreck, folks. Let's get out there.

    Bill went nowhere... this year. Make sure you vote in your state elections to help hold off further attempts in the future.
