Oregon SB501 permit required to own guns, 20 rounds per month limit, bans mags over 5 rounds

Might worth considering passing on a coup!e 'extras' and sending a few of those bucks to organizations that couple use the $$ in the legal battles to come. Something to consider...my $.02 worth.

Boss
Agreed, we need to support those organizations that’ll stand in the gap on our behalf. Time to fatten their coffers!

Senate Bill 501 Requires person to secure permit before purchasing or otherwise receiving firearm. "May issue" by the Sheriff.

Restricts ammunition receipt to 20 rounds within 30-day period. Prohibits transfer of firearm by gun dealer or private party until latter of 14 days or Department of State Police has determined that recipient is qualified to receive firearm.

Gun owners will vote for the people who want to put the law in. Then after it passes will blame the NRA.

In an era when many Federal agencies are stock piling ammunition at rates of at least 100 rounds per department firearm for “qualifying purposes”, it seems strange that a random number of 20 rounds per month total would be included in the proposed bill. Federal agencies are reported to have been increasing firearms and ammunition stores by department since at least 1996. Seems what is good for the government should be at least as good for the governed.

Personally, I do not believe there should be any restrictions on ammunition short of budget constraints - government or personal.

Sponsored by Senator Ron Wagner and Representative Andrea Salinas. "At the request of
Students for Change". If these two represent you--perhaps a little note expressing your
opinion of their sponsorship might be in order.
The ONLY thing politicians care about is votes. As long as voters keep putting them back in why would they care about letters? The OR Governor was opposed by people many gun owners found "not acceptable". So gun owners put Kate in a couple times now. Now those same gun owners seem shocked Kate is feeling empowered?????????? As long as politicians can openly champion anti gun laws, and gun owners vote for them, well they will give gun owners more anti gun laws. If, and that is a big IF, gun owners start voting some out of office the ones left will change.

Never happen in Oregon, I think that ship has sailed. Too many folks depend on the states handouts to vote them out. Why fire those who take care of you?

Sadly that is a lot of it right there. A LOT of people who own guns also want the Government to take care of them in some way. So they vote left, thinking they will still be OK. Or they go all self righteous. Say the "better" candidate, and there is always a better one, is just a squish or such. So they either refuse to vote or throw the vote away. So of course the worst candidate wins. Hard to tell just how bad this will get till a majority wake up, if they ever do.

They’ll wake up when their EBT cards don’t work anymore...

They already don't, in some locations due to the shutdown, apparently the feds are responsible for actually processing EBT transactions, so when the system goes down, there's no one to fix it. Was on the news the other night that some stores are having that very problem.

I think it is much more than 100/firearm. Feds have been buying rounds by the million for years.
