    As I have done in previous years on other gun sites. I will keep this thread up to date with IMPORTANT O.F.F action alerts. Pay attention this year, in the wake of the AZ incident, it's going to be a tough year.

    Maybe I've been drinking at work or something, but those all sound reasonable if not good?!


    As for HB 2418 and HB 3001, what's the difference in the two, and I thought OSP was already required to destroy the records. Isn't making it more illegal, or illegal again, kind of silly? :)

    Not all OFF alerts are negative. Negative bills need opposition, good ones need support. HB 2418 & HB 3001 are probably drafted by different people.

    I wasn't actually in shock that the alert wasn't negative, rather that there's a voluminous pile of legislation that directly benefits our cause, cleans up the rough edges of Oregon firearm laws, and is generally something to be excited about!

    My personal expectations are that little of it will pass, but one can always hope, and besides if any of it passes that would be fantastic. I think I'll be getting in touch with my state congress men and women shortly!

    I like the bills too, of course I haven't read them, but the short descriptions seem like good ideas... and living in Central Oregon I know my reps will support most all of them.
    But
    Kitzhaber is going to get arthritis by vetoing them all except for HB2790 - if he follows his support for CCarry.

    So now what can we do to help make sure these bills get assigned to committees? And then that the committees give these bills the thumbs up?

    TOP PRIORITY
    HB 2790 Grants rights given to concealed handgun licensee to any person who may lawfully purchase and possess firearm.
    HB 2796 Provides that firearms ammunition and firearm accessories that are manufactured and retained in Oregon are not subject to federal regulation.
    HB 2787 Prohibits public body from releasing information that identifies holder of or applicant for concealed handgun license.
    HB 2419 Exempts certain transferors of firearm from requesting criminal history record check if purchaser or recipient has concealed handgun license.
    HB 3003 Exempts certain transferors of firearms from requesting criminal history record check if purchaser or recipient has concealed handgun license.
    HB 3001 Requires Department of State Police to destroy records obtained during criminal records checks within 24 hours of approving certain transfers of firearms.
    HB 2418 Requires Department of State Police to destroy records obtained during criminal records checks within 24 hours of approving certain transfers of firearms.
    MIDDLE PRIORITY
    HB 2415 Directs Department of State Police to adopt rules identifying states that allow holder of Oregon concealed handgun license to carry concealed handgun and have substantially similar eligibility requirements.
    HB 3002 Provides nonresidents who are licensed to carry concealed handgun in another state with protections provided to persons with Oregon concealed handgun license if other state used National Instant Criminal Background Check System prior to issuing person's handgun license.
    HB 2791 Removes Department of State Police as designated state point of contact for purposes of National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
    LOW PRIORITY
    HB 2080 Requires that certain court orders indicate that person subject to order is barred from possessing receiving shipping or transporting firearm or firearm ammunition.
    HB 2789 Authorizes issuance of concealed handgun license to person convicted or diverted for certain marijuana offenses in another jurisdiction if conviction or diversion is equivalent to conviction or diversion that does not operate as bar to obtaining license under Oregon law.
    HB 2793 Modifies definition of public place for purpose of certain city or county ordinances related to possession of loaded firearms.
    HB 2794 Modifies authority of county sheriff related to issuance and revocation of concealed handgun license.
    HB 2797 Describes readily accessible for purpose of prohibition on possessing readily accessible concealed handgun within vehicle when vehicle is snowmobile motorcycle or all-terrain vehicle.
    NOT NEEDED
    HB 2706 Provides public safety officers employed by law enforcement unit with affirmative defense to crime of unlawful possession of a firearm.

    There are duplicates (bills that have different sponsors but accomplish roughly the same thing).

    There are some that are VERY important and overshadow others. For example, if HB2790 is passed, then there is no need for concealed carry licenses for people in Oregon. But still there might be a desire for a Concealed Carry license in order to get reciprocity with other states and/or to enable firearm purchases without a STATE background check.
