NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- Legislation has been introduced in Oregon that would require background checks for private firearm sales.

Sponsored by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Floyd Prozanski (D-Eugene), SB 941 expands background checks for all firearms transfers between private individuals.

The bill exempts background checks for the transfer of firearms by a law enforcement agency, private security, members of the military, between spouses, domestic partners or other immediate relatives, or resulting from a death.

Retailers will be allowed to charge the service fee they deem necessary for completing a criminal history record check. The bill also grants retailers immunity from potential civil liability resulting from conducting the background check.

States around the country need to start just throwing the gungabbing son of a bitches out ! This ridiculous law, if passed, could never be enforced. The less anyone knows about your firearms the better,esp.the fed.gov’t,state gov’t !…etc !

They will never be able to keep guns from the criminal elements in our state. What’s Bloomberg’s right to say anything about gun owners in Oregon. He such an idiot. Citizens have a right to own guns to protect themselves. Contact the Democrats if you value your gun rights. The numbers are: 1503-986 and their individual numbers are : Courtney 1-503-986-1600, Sen. Robain 1-503-986-1705, Develon, 1-503-986-1719,Byer 1-503-986-1706, Ryley, 1-503-986-1715. Take time to call and tell them… Read more »


How the hell are they going to enforce this? ??


Sheeze, I thought this headline was for illegal aliens, wouldn’t that have been a real Hooray! No, they just want to hammer law abiding citizens – please – just for one term….vote out every democrat! Set Oregon up on an even keel and work at balanced legislation.


What about felon to felon firearms transfers? Oh! Criminals don’t follow the law because they might further incriminate themselves! LOL
