"Senate Bill 941, legislation which seeks to expand background checks to private transfers, is being rushed through the Oregon Legislature and is scheduled for a final vote by the full House of Representatives on Monday, May 4th. It is critical that Oregonians contact their state Representative with strong opposition to this bill. If enacted, SB 941 would require individuals to appear before a gun dealer to request a criminal background check prior to privately transferring a firearm, absent limited exceptions. Transfers include, but are not limited to, sales, gifts, loans and leases. Failure to comply with this mandate could result in stiff penalties and possible loss of an individual’s Right to Keep and Bear Arms."
