Position: Support Status: House Committee on Judiciary, Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations
To prohibit firearms dealers from selling a firearm prior to the completion of a background check.
Introduced July 27, 2017 by James “Jim” Clyburn (D - SC 6) 101 cosponsors (D 101) including Congressman Earl Blumenauer and Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici. Call Congressmen Schrader, DeFazio, and Walden. Tell them to support HB 3464 and require universal background checks so people undergo background checks for ALL gun sales. Oregon already has a universal background check law (SB 941) but a national law is needed to help prevent gun violence. A February 2018 Quinnipiac poll shows that 97% of gun owners support background checks for all guns sales. Rep. Greg Walden: (541) 389-4408 (Tell Rep. Walden you are disappointed that he is endangering Oregon law enforcement and our families by cosponoring HR 38.) Rep. Kurt Schrader: (503) 557-1324 (Tell Rep. Schrader you are disappointed that he is endangering Oregon law enforcement and our families by cosponoring HR 38.)
