Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)-  As previously reported, House Bill 4045, a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) confidentially bill, passed in both chambers of the Oregon Legislature and currently awaits Governor Kitzhaber’s approval.

The last day for the Governor to sign this legislation into law is Monday, April 16.

Sponsored by state Representative Kim Thatcher (R-25), HB 4045 is a necessary legislative fix because under current law, the private personal information of every person holding a CHL in Oregon is at risk of being divulged to the public.

Please contact Governor John Kitzhaber TODAY and respectfully request that he sign House Bill 4045 into law.  You can contact Governor Kitzhaber by calling (503) 378-4582 and by e-mailing him through the online form found here.
