Programming Note: I would like to keep this thread focused on how it will impact FFLs and their customers. FFLs won't have the option of ignoring the law or losing their inventory in a boating accident. They will need to interpret the law when trying to figure out what they can and can't legally buy, sell or transfer so they don't risk losing their FFL license and/or being charged with a crime.


Here is a link to the lengthy text of the bill below so it can be easily referenced:

My first question is, will this portion of the proposed law prevent FFLs from selling or transferring frames and receivers? What about all other parts (barrels, triggers, gas system parts, slides, etc) that could be used in a semi-auto firearm?

(f) A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a rifle into a semiautomatic assault firearm as
described in paragraphs (a) to (e) of this subsection, or that can be assembled into a semiautomatic assault firearm as
described in paragraphs (a) to (e) of this subsection.

Another question for FFLs. If IP 18 is passed will you try dealing with "compliant" or "featureless" type ARs or will you just wash your hands of them all together.

This part of the proposed law seems to outlaw any firearm that remotely resembles an AR, depending on how you interpret "capability"

(c) All of the rifles listed in paragraphs (a) or (b) of this subsection, copies, duplicates, variants, or altered facsimiles with the same or greater capability of any such firearm regardless of the manufacturer or model name and number.

Maybe IP 18 will benefit some FFLs? By reducing the number of models that are available to sell, it might allow FFLs to raising pricing on the firearms they are still allowed to sell. There will be the same number of buyers competing for a much smaller selection of firearms. In addition the FFLs may be tasked with handling the registration of "assault weapons" that existing owners decide to register. They will surely get paid for this service. There will also be a likely last minute surge of buying the firearms that will be banned.

If you are an FFL that relied heavily on AR sales you might have to switch your focus to lever actions and revolvers.

I am thinking that if Bimart and other FFLs who depend on the these so called "assault weapons for their life, liberty and livelihood aren't too concerned about IP 18 then may I shouldn't be too worried about it either?

What a terribly written law, like it was mashed together from 3 or 4 different ones. Anyone want to write up a bill to redefine antique firearm?

"(l) A semiautomatic assault firearm does not include the following: (A) An antique firearm as defined in ORS 166.210."

Apparently what this bill does is eliminate all semi-auto rifles and you will only be able to own a bolt or lever action rifle. Way to go Orygun. Pathetic.

If you already owned the semi-autos before IP 18 taking effect you can keep them but you would have to register them to possess them legally.

(4) It shall be an affirmative defense, as provided in ORS 161.055, to unlawful possession, transfer or use of a semiautomatic assault firearm, if the semiautomatic assault firearm was owned by a person before the effective date of this 2022 Act or if the semiautomatic assault firearm was acquired by inheritance, bequest or succession, or by virtue of the person’s role as executor or other legal representative of an estate or trust, and if, within 180 days of the effective date of this 2022 Act or within 180 days after acquiring possession, whichever is later, the owner:

Registration won't fly. Not even in Orygun.
