Mandatory Lock Up Ballot Measure Moves Forward

04.24.18

Today the Oregon Secretary of State announced that proposed ballot measure 44 had the required number of signatures (1000) to move on to the Attorney General for a draft ballot title.

This measure would hold you liable for any damage or injuries that happened with a firearm that you transferred, for 5 years after it was no longer yours unless you could prove it was transferred with a lock. There are many other absurd provisions too numerous to detail.

As with IP 43, the AG will create a proposed title and Oregon voters will be given an opportunity to comment on the proposed ballot title language.

After that anyone who provided a comment will have standing to challenge the ballot title in the Oregon Supreme Court.

The AG must provide the proposed title by May 1. We will post more info as this progresses.
