This “memorial” urges the US Congress to “regulate rapid fire enhancing accessories, such as bump stocks, in the same manner as fully automatic weapons.” It is the work of Senate President Peter Courtney.
As anyone with any knowledge of firearms knows, a “rapid fire enhancing accessory” could be an aftermarket trigger or even your finger. Of course it could also be a rubber band.
With a bit of practice a shooter can learn to “bump fire” a firearm with no accessories.
The “memorial” also calls on Congress to regulate 80% lowers as though they were actual complete firearms. It calls on Congress to require background checks on “partially completed firearms kits” and prohibit the transfer of a “completed firearm without a serial number and background check,” something already prohibited under Federal law.
This memorial is clearly the work of people who have no idea what they are talking about.
The “memorial” has no force of law, but it certainly is a roadmap for what we can expect from the legislature in the future.
The Oregon Democrats are using your money to urge Congress to restrict your rights and they are doing it in your name.
This is an outrageous misuse of taxpayer dollars.
Please take a moment to let the Oregon Senate know how you feel about this.
