Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Today, the House Judiciary Committee held a public work session for House Bill 4147.  During this hearing, the committee adopted the -8 amendment to the bill and passed HB 4147 with a 5-4 vote.

HB 4147 will now go to the full House of Representatives for a vote sometimein the next few days.  It is imperative that you contact your state Representative immediately to voice your strong opposition to HB 4147!

Under current state law, indefinite delays on firearm transfers are prevented by a small safeguard which allows federal firearms dealers (FFL) to release a firearm after three days if the Oregon State Police (OSP) are unable to determine whether a recipient is prohibited from possessing a firearm.  A deferral from OSP does not necessarily mean the recipient is prohibited, but rather that OSP is not satisfied with the background check inquiry and a determination has not yet been made.  With the new amendments, under HB 4147, if after 10 business days an FFL has not received a determination from OSP, the FFL may release the firearm to a transferee at the dealers discretion.

In reality, transfers could be delayed up to 15 days due to weekends and holidays. There’s absolutely no reason why OSP should need 10 days, nevertheless 15, to determine whether an individual is prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Further, the amendment attempts to address one of the many flaws of Senate Bill 941, which passed the Legislative Assembly and was signed into law in 2015.  As previously reported, this misguided legislation included nail guns and boating flares in the definition of firearms.

Once again, please contact your state Representative immediately to voice your strong opposition to House Bill 4147!

Please forward this email to friends, family and fellow Second Amendment supporters in Oregon and encourage them to do the same.

Open carry of nail guns illegal. Thats a real low point in bad stupid. What the hell is a matter with those people?


Marxist and Islamists who infect our federal government plus the media whores who protect them will gleefully lie, falsify, fabricate, slander, libel, deceive, delude, bribe, and treasonably betray the free citizens of the United States.. Second Amendment foes lying about gun control – Firearms are our constitutionally mandated safeguard against tyranny by a powerful federal government. Only dictators, tyrants, despots, totalitarians, and those who want to control and ultimately to enslave you support gun control. No matter what any president, senator, congressman, or hard-left mainstream media whores tell you concerning the statist utopian fantasy of safety and security through further… Read more »

Oust the socialists “Remains of soldier killed in 1951”: (Mail Tribune, May 10) brings to remembrance the Korean War (1950-1953). Sandwiched between World War II (1939-1945) and the Vietnam War (1961-1975), the Korean War has been called “the forgotten war.” Labeling the Korean War a police action is a misnomer. The World Book Encylopedia states: “The Korean War was one of the bloodiest in history. About 1 million civilians were killed, and millions more made homeless. More than 560,000 United Nations troops and about 1.6 million Communist troops, both North Korean and Red Chinese, were killed or wounded or reported… Read more »
