Oregon: Contact Your State Senator in Opposition to Bill that Targets Law-Abiding Gun Owners

Your immediate action is needed!  The state Senate could vote soon on Senate Bill 700, harmful legislation that will only penalize law-abiding gun owners.  SB 700 seeks to criminalize otherwise lawful private firearm transfers done without a background check, imposes burdensome requirements for compliance and carries steep penalties for any misstep or violation in the process.  This legislation could be voted on at any time and it’s critical that it be stopped!  Contact your state Senator now and urge his or her opposition to Senate Bill 700.

Texas: Senator Birdwell Introduces Senate Bill 182: Campus Personal Protection Act

This week, Senator Brian Birdwell (R-Granbury) and 13 co-authors filed Senate Bill 182, NRA-backed legislation allowing adult Concealed Handgun Licensees (CHLs) to protect themselves on the campuses of public colleges and universities in Texas.  As you may recall, the state Senate passed this legislation as a stand-alone bill in 2009 and as an amendment to a higher education bill in 2011.  During both sessions, the full House of Representatives failed to even consider this measure.  During that time, high-profile shootings have occurred at the University of Texas at Austin and several blocks from the Texas A&M campus in College Station – both locations classified as ‘gun-free zones’, but in reality are simply places where CHLs are rendered defenseless against criminals under current law.
