HB 2172 : Mandates private businesses display signs permitting guns on premises

Position: Neutral Status: House Committee On Judiciary

Requires person that engages in business in this state, on premises onto which person permits members of public to enter, to post in prominent location outside entry to premises sign that states person's policy with respect to permitting individuals who have license to carry concealed handgun to carry firearm onto premises.

Ceasefire Oregon believes many businesses are happy to tell the public that guns are not welcome on their premises. We are surprised, however, that Republicans are willing to mandate private businesses place signs on their doors.
