New law makes it way too easy to take guns away from people without cause, H&N by Rep E. Werner Reschke 9/8/17. "SB 719 calls for the forced confiscation of property (guns) by the police with no due process, no conviction of a crime and no accusation of a crime. It allows anyone, including strangers off the street, to make assessments and a case before a judge. It allows judges, with no mental health credentials, to render judgment on another personís state of mind whom they have never met or spoken to. Furthermore, it actually forbids judges from considering assessments of the respondentís mental health by people who actually do have mental health credentials. The law even goes so far to allow a judge to confiscate every firearm in a household because one person in the household has a past DUI conviction."

OREGON - Legislature passes expanded background checks for guns. Measure heads to Gov. Brown for final approval, H&N, posted to KBC 5/7/15.

A second offense would be a felony, with a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine"

Oregon's 4 anti-gun bills by Senator Doug Whitsett, posted to KBC 4/7/13. "The disarming of state legislators and their staffs is the last thing that I wish to see. In my opinion, gun free areas might as well be advertised as potential killing zones....(Prozanski's) bill would require any person applying for a concealed handgun license to first-pass a live-fire test at a firing range. The test would require accuracy while repeatedly firing up to twenty shots in 60 seconds or less.This would certainly be difficult to achieve using a handgun, such as a revolver, that only holds six rounds of ammunition. One would have to reload the weapon three times in order to fire twenty rounds in a minute or less."
