Bill to close last gun sale background check loophole about to be introduced in the Oregon Legislature
With strong majorities in both houses of the Oregon Legislature, Oregon democrats are about to introduce a bill that would close the last back-door method of selling a gun – through private party or family transactions. Washington State recently enacted such a law. In addition to wanting to close the last gun sale loophole, there are those who say the stricter law is now critical for Oregon because those who can no longer acquire a firearm through a private party transaction in Washington need only to come to Oregon where such transactions are still legal. Oregon democrats say they want to close that loophole.
