Update


176 cosponsors (D 176, R 0) including Oregon Congresswoman Bonamici and Congressman Blumenauer. Introduced in the House on February 26, 2018.

Ceasefire Oregon supports this bill but we ask for a limit of 5 bullets because that is the limit for large-game hunting in Oregon. We must show the same humanity to people that we do to elk.
