While we were successful in 2019, anti-gun extremists will be back in 2020 with a slew of initiative petitions, gun “control” bills and other assaults on our 2A rights. Make sure to like Oregon Gun Owners on Facebook and subscribe to our e-newsletter so you know what’s happening in Oregon.
The School Gun Safety Act – Initiative Petition 6
If passed, Oregon public schools would need to provide a gun safety class to six graders once a year. The class would cover events such as how to respond to an unsecured firearm, safe muzzle direction, and other basic safety measures.
If passed, Initiative Petition 8 would amend the Oregon state constitution to: create a constitutional right to possess, use, transfer semiautomatic, other firearms and limit new firearm regulations.
Firearms Safety Education – Initiative Petition 11
This Initiative Petition would function in a similar way to The School Gun Safety Act if passed.
This Initiative Petition was withdrawn, and refiled as The Common Sense Gun Regulation Act.
The Common Sense Gun Regulation Act – Initiative Petition 17
If passed, this Initiative Petition would define “assault weapon” and effectively ban most semiautomatic firearms. This is a second attempt at the failed Initiative Petition 43 in 2018, and will require 112,020 signatures to get on the ballot.
