Federal Judge Immergut Rules Measure 114 Constitutional
“'This Court notes the inherent tension in allowing the firearms industry to control the bounds of the Second Amendment because of the firearm industry’s economic interest in the increased sale of firearms,” the ruling said. “This Court simply holds today that the popularity of a firearm or firearm accessory alone cannot be dispositive when considering whether that item is ‘in common use today for self-defense.’” (The Oregonian, Maxine Bernstein, July 14, 2023)
Ceasefire Oregon thanks every person who has worked to pass Measure 114. While the measure still faces a court challenge in Harney County, Oregon, Judge Immergut's ruling is a very important first step.
