U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Today, April. 2nd, the Oregon House is expected to vote on anti-gun Mandatory Storage Legislation, House Bill 2510.  It is extremely important that you contact your State Representative and ask them to OPPOSE House Bill 2510.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION

House Bill 2510, sponsored by Representative Rachel Prusak (D-37), requires owners or possessors of firearms, to lock up their firearms and impose increased fines and strict liability penalties for failing to do so.  This measure imposes one-size fits all government-mandated standards for storing a firearm, rendering a person’s firearm useless when needed for self-defense.  This is a matter of personal responsibility, not government oversight.  HB 2510 requires firearms to be locked when not in use, even at home, and during transportation.  Failing to do so could cost you $500-$2,000 and result in misdemeanor charges for violations, which are imposed on each firearm.
HB 2510 does not stop there.  It also victimizes gun owners who suffer loss or theft of their property by imposing fines and strict liability on them, rather than the thief, for up to two years following the theft.

Again, please contact your State Representative and ask them to OPPOSE House Bill 2510.​

I have to wonder, did anyone ask them how they plan to enforce HB 2510 as it’s totally useless and unenforceable.

Enforcers will enforce it.

Tips from kids, friends of kids, ex-wives, ex-girlfriends, pink-haired nieces, neighbors who didn’t like someone telling them to pick-up after their dog, etc.

I suspect it would lead to tit-for-tat on said snitches’.

All sorts of dynamics are likely to occur.

Quite a few will. And then they’ll start dying when they come up against people who are fed up with the jackbooted thuggery. The civil war will start this way: a few individual firefights in Suburban neighborhoods where normal people will have simply come to the conclusion that they will no longer back up and bend the knee. When the evening news shows shot up bodies of husbands and wives, and yes their children, because that will happen, people with badges who still take their oaths seriously will have to make a choice. So will politicians, judges, and the average… Read more »

Hello neighbor.

Did you watch the video of the Wyoming state senate judiciary committee meeting in which all Wyoming sheriffs, policie chiefs, and highway patrol sided with Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety?

They don’t understand.

“Held:

“3) …the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional.” – D.C. v. Heller (2008)

Dicta:

“[A] statute which, under the pretense of regulating, amounts to a destruction of the right, or which requires arms to be so borne as to render them wholly useless for the purpose of defense [is] clearly unconstitutional.”

No government has the right to tell a citizen how to store their arms within their homes. This is tyranny!

I have been from sea to shining sea in the last six years spending a total of seven months on the road traveling all of the upper states of the U.S.. All states think and say the same thing. Kommiefornians moved in and messed it up. Now they are starting to think the same thing about orgone ians. I tell them the ones that do mess it up are kommiefornians that moved to oregone , destroyed a good thing and then they move on to infect more of the country. I wish in so many ways that I was not… Read more »

Oregon used to be such a nice State! Sadly, the low-life Marxist come out of California moved North to Oregon an infected the entire state! What I mean by using the phrase entire state, is pretty much Salem and Portland, the largest population centers of course, Lemmings live there waiting to leap off that cliff into the waiting Waters below, which will take them all to Paradise if they just keep swimming, swimming, swimming! Just how does the twit legislator who wrote this bill intend to have it enforced? Apparently, she does not believe in the concept of probable cause,… Read more »
