Short description:

The Oregon gun lobby wants to take away YOUR voice to demand laws to reduce gun violence, and they want to take away Oregon legislator's right to do so as well.

IP 8 would put an end to firearm safety legislation in Oregon including bills passed by our Oregon legislators and initiative petitions. In addition, the gun lobby wants to be sure that weapons of war like AR15s and AK 47s are readily available for the mass shootings that are now common place in America.

On June 7, 2013, an assailant used a gun he had constructed by himself to kill his father, brother, and 3 other people at Santa Monica College in California. The person had failed a background check when he tried to purchase a gun from a licensed gun dealer. The gun he used was made from an unfinished AR–15-style receiver, similar to a receiver that can now be made with a 3D printer.
