    According to Jeff Rhoades, counsel for the Oregon State Senate Judiciary Committee, the 90 days of state police ramp-up ends on August 9th, 2015. After that date, meeting a fellow law-abiding citizen of the once-great state of Oregon in a parking lot to transfer a gun with cash and a look at a drivers license will now be a felony. What used to be one of the most American things a free citizen could engage in will become illegal.

    Misdemeanor first time, felony second time. Correct me if I am wrong.

    There was a time I was meeting someone once a month or more to exercise my freedoms. At that same rate, a person who wished to ignore the new infringement (oops, I mean law) would be a felon by September.

    I am really excited to see how Bloomberg's law is really going to influence the gang members in Portland/Gresham! My guess is there won't be any gang violence come August 9th! All the gang members will be lining up to background check their gang banger buddies! Thanks for making the world so much safer, Bloomberg! Thank you Kate Brown! Oregon can rest peacefully now in your diligent watch to keep our streets safe and clean! God bless!

    Don't forget that due to SB 315 you can now be arrested for following this law and having an OSP approved background check should the transferee then commit a crime with the transferred firearm.

    Not quite how it's written from what I understand.... If you temporarily loan it to someone under the few provisions of SB941 allows and they commit a crime with it, you can be had for it.


    The whole thing stinks on ice! o_O

    To me it seems to read that you are only immune if you have the approved background check done through a dealer.

    Indeed. Considering that under SB 315 one can now, once again, legally use the OSP background check without a dealer for certain transfers. So with an OSP approved background check NOT using a dealer one can, indeed, be arrested. As I said.

    You're being quite generous. I would have begun with 'foetid stench of progressive competence'.

    I noticed you didn't start that sentence with, "I". So you must just mean it as a lack of support for the law, not an admission of guilt. :s0165:

    Why is it August 9th? I remember it being announced here that—as of the passing of SB941—any transfer without a dealer would be illegal.

    The transfer portion of SB941 goes into effect 90 days after signed into law. It was signed in early May by defacto Gov. Brown

    In the places that support it....


    Wonder how that will work. I know for one Linn County doesn't support so does that mean if somebody were to not comply they would do the transaction in rural Linn Co/Lane Co/Yamhill Co etc to be by default immune from local cities reach in prosecution from this?

    I
    I would assume that it would be similar to WA and the state police would be the main agency in charge of enforcement, but here we are 8 months after 594 went into effect and zero prosecutions.
