Oregon NICS Legislation Needs Your Help Now
On Tuesday, May 17, the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Public Safety heard House Bill 2791. HB 2791 would transfer background checks for firearms purchases from the Oregon State Police (OSP) to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). There is no reason to pay the OSP for the same service NICS furnishes at no charge. Please call and e-mail Senate President Peter Courtney and House Co-Speaker Arnie Roblan and respectfully urge them to direct the Ways and Means Co-Chairmen to move HB 2791 forward.
