HB 2126 : Repeal SB 941 and Deny Trace Data to Law Enforcement

Position: Oppose Status: House Committee on Judiciary

Repeals requirement that person engaged in business of selling, leasing or otherwise transferring firearms record in register purchase or acceptance in trade of used firearm and provide copy of record to law enforcement agency.

The primary intent of this bill is to repeal SB 941, the Oregon Firearm Safety Act which requires background checks for almost all firearm sales. An unintended consequence could be to prevent law enforcement from receiving trace data concerning guns used in crimes.
