After the four-hour hearing, Senate Judiciary Chairman Floyd Prozanski, D-Eugene, said he intends to proceed with the four bills, which he called "common-sense legislation regarding gun safety."

Prozanski said he would work on amendments to the measures and bring the bills back to the committee for a vote before April 18.

The Oregon measures would expand background checks to cover private gun transfers (Senate Bill 700), allow school districts to ban concealed handgun licensees from carrying their firearms on school grounds (Senate Bill 347), and prohibit licensees from openly carrying weapons in public buildings (Senate Bill 699).

So limit guns even more from law abiding citizens and doing nothing to prevent violent whackos from shooting up the disarmed law abiding citizens.

Good job Oregon! Probably just Portland to Eugene down I-5 that’s the real problem.

Another left-wing state trying to disarm itself.

When TSHF, rounding up the commies in Oregon will be easy.

he called “common-sense legislation regarding gun safety.”

People who keep using this term could use a frying pan to the face.

At least is sound like HB3200 is gone. It was a berserk anti “assulat rifle” farce.

The gun test requires 100 rounds to complete. They might as well mandate a pistol course at Gunsite Academy.

Seems like this proposed legislation is solving problems that don’t exist.
