Endless Delay Bill Scheduled For Additional Hearing
HB 2543, the “endless delay” bill is scheduled for an additional hearing on March 4th at 1pm in the House Judiciary Committee.
As we have told you, this bill will allow the State Police to deny a firearms purchase forever, with no justification and no consequences.
The Oregon State Police have testified that there are background checks that were requested last year that they have not even started to process.
This bill is designed to create one more roadblock to lawful firearm’s purchases. If you want to submit testimony in opposition to the bill, the legislature has made it as complicated as possible. So to save time we have included links and information on how to do this.
