OGO team engages in every legislative session to defend gun owners’ rights.

2022 Short Session: The most recent legislative session adjourned on Friday, March 4. No gun-control bills passed in the 2022 session. The budget reconciliation bill, HB 5202, allocated $2.6 million to the Department of State Police for the Firearms Instant Check System unit.

2021 Long Session: In 2021, the Oregon Legislature passed a new gun bill over the objection of all Republicans and some Democrats. OGO strongly opposed the policy and worked tirelessly to defeat it.

SB 554 bans possession of guns in some public buildings by CHL holders and requires secure storage under certain conditions. It took effect on September 25, 2021. Click here for more info about the new law.
