The Oregon Cattlemen’s Association urges its members to submit testimony in opposition to Oregon Senate Bill 978, an omnibus gun control package.

The Oregon Cattlemen’s Association urges its members to submit testimony in opposition to Oregon Senate Bill 978, an omnibus gun control package, which would require firearms be kept unavailable for self-defense and would expand bun free zones.

In a message sent to members, OCA said SB 978 would:

  • Allow age discrimination for firearms dealers by allowing them to refuse service to young adults, for no other reason than being under the age of 21 years old.
  • Place liability on gun owners if a gun is stolen, but not reported, and used t injure a person or property.
  • Impose a one-size-fits-all for firearm storage and require firearms be made unavailable for self-defense by requiring storage in a locked container or under a trigger lock device and the bill clearly states locked storage does not include a building, room or vehicle.
  • Make hospitals provide firearm injury data to the state.
  • Grant local authorities the power to regulate firearm access in public buildings.
  • End home manufacturing of firearms for lawful, personal use.
  • Increase the Concealed Handgun license fee.
  • Make owning a classic hunting rifle or family heirloom without a serial number a felony.

OCA asked its members to write or call Senator Lee Beyer, Senator Arnie Roblan and Senator Peter Courtney opposing SB 978.
