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.
