Agreed, people was misled. I remember the main highlights of Measure 114 is background checks on all gun transactions and Magazine ban and didn't say much about the other BS in the measure. Many people that are not into guns are ignorance of background checks thinking that you can simply go to a gun show and bring home guns without doing a BGC.The so-called Gun Show loophole. But most gunowners know that is not the case. Oregon has one of the strictest BGC system in the country.LEVO did this on purpose. The campaigned on adding a background check, when there is already a background check. Now there is another one, one to get the new purchase permit, then the usual check with each purchase.
The way they [intentionally] campaigned their law made it imply there wasnt a BGC so most people supported the idea.
IMO this double check system should shoot them in their own foot constitutionally but we will see how it plays out in court.
It's too bad that gun organizations didn't seem to put a lot of effort in trying to educate Oregonians about BGC. I remembered last Summer and Fall, Measure 114 was promoted everywhere and I didn't see much of against 114 except in gun clubs, gun shows, gun shops and here on this forum.. Mostly encouraging gunowners to vote no. Sure, some gunowners might vote for it or didn't vote but it's the general population that need to be educated and that's why we lost. I guess Gun org. want to see what happens and if we lose, we'll fight it. Now, the gun org is going spent tons of money and we the gun owner going to have to keep donating to fight the this.
