    If it's so easy for them to pass this without the people voting why didn't they do this years ago?

    Because the Dems didn't have a supermajority in the legislature. They do now.

    Again, representative Kim Thatcher from Keizer added an addendum (Amendment?) that requires a notice of some kind on licenses (ODL's) of those who can't be trusted with firearms so sellers can know to not sell guns to them, all you need to buy guns is the mark to NOT be on your license in order to buy a gun, as I understand it. It answers all the supposed fears of the dems, and any objections show their true motivations, that being to defraud us of our rights.

    Financial support on the gun issue in Oregon has come mainly from supporters, at least on the national level. Everytown for Gun Safety, an advocacy group supported by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, gave $450,000 at the end of the 2014 campaign, including $250,000 to Kitzhaber just days before the November election.

    Another $75,000 went to Chuck Riley, who narrowly unseated Sen. Bruce Starr to become the Democrats' 18th vote in the Senate.

    In contrast, the National Rifle Association gave about $11,500 to campaigns in 2014, according to the Oregon Secretary of State's office. Three of those contributions went to Democrats.

    Rep. Brad Witt, D-Clatskanie, Rep. Jeff Barker, D-Aloha, and Rep. Val Hoyle, D-Junction City, each received $250
