Oregon: Contact Your State Senator in Opposition to Bill that Targets Law-Abiding Gun Owners

Your immediate action is needed! The state Senate could vote soon on Senate Bill 700, harmful legislation that will only penalize law-abiding gun owners. SB 700 seeks to criminalize otherwise lawful private firearm transfers done without a background check, imposes burdensome requirements for compliance and carries steep penalties for any misstep or violation in the process. This legislation could be voted on at any time and it’s critical that it be stopped! Contact your state Senator now and urge his or her opposition to Senate Bill 700.

Senate Bill 700 requires background checks on private firearm transfers, criminalizing otherwise lawful private transfers of firearms. This proposed law contains many arduous requirements, including:

A condition that any “approved” transaction take place within 24 hours or it is no longer legal and must be re-submitted for approval.
The person who transfers the firearm is required to have the purchaser complete a government form and to retain a copy of that completed form for five years.
Law enforcement will be allowed to retain records of all private transactions for five years.
Any misstep or violation of the provisions in this bill, if enacted into law, carries severe penalties that could result in jail time, heavy fines and AND even permanent loss of your Second Amendment rights.

Contact your state Senator IMMEDIATELY and urge them to OPPOSE SB 700. Contact information for your state legislators can be found here.
