On May 11, 2015, Oregon became the eighth state to require life-saving Brady background checks for ALL gun sales with the signing of SB 941 into law by Governor Kate Brown. With its passage, Oregon joins Colorado, Connecticut, New York, Delaware, California, Rhode Island, and Washington in requiring background checks for every gun purchase, including purchases made online and at gun shows.
- It’s really not possible to overstate the importance of this victory in Washington State. Voters in the Evergreen State overwhelmingly passed Initiative 594 to expand background checks to all gun sales, including online and at gun shows. With a decisive 60 percent of voters supporting I-594, it turns out that it’s a lot harder for the corporate gun lobby to bully voters than it is to bully politicians.
AB 1014 (Skinner) advances the Brady Campaign’s core mission of reducing firearm injury and death by keeping firearms out of dangerous hands. The law establishes a process for law enforcement or immediate family members to obtain a Gun Violence Restraining Order from a court in order to temporarily limit an individual’s access to firearms when there are warning signs or indications that the person is at risk for violence.
